Song of Susannah was pointless and went nowhere. The time would have been better spent crafting a "real" ending to Dark Tower, insted of "mailing it in" with that tired and over used ending.
This is one of the greatest stories ever written. The characters become almost like your own family and each book is like a new story. I've read the series three times and wanted to try listening to it and I'm glad I did.
My only regret is that I am going to be finished after the next book. I do have the movie to look forward to.
Well of course I recommend it to a friend. If you are reading TDT series this is a must.
I loved the narration. I think Mr. Guidall has done an amazing job narrating the books he's done in this series. As soon as he speaks I know which character he's doing , before it's clarified.
Yes, I've heard George Guidall read before. I adore his voice.
Of course it needs a follow up. Thank gosh there is one!
My title for this review is I didn't liike this one as much....as the others. That's not to say I didn't like it though. IMO it just drug on a bit(as any fan of Mr. Kings knows,he's good at that and normally I love it. But this book just didn't grab me as much as the others.I just wanted Susannah/Mia to have that dang baby(or whatever) already. I do like this book,don't get me wrong. I just didn't "feel" it like the others. Years ago I read(with my eyes) the first 3 books. When I found them on audio I was pleased. I commute an hour to work by bus so these books were a pleasant diversion to the boring ride. I have one more book to go,I've actually not read nor listened to the last of the series. Frankly I'm scared to. I wan't give away what another person from another well known site did but this persons review of another book in the series gave away book 7's ending and another important factor. So now I'm worried. I'm about to listen to It. Maybe after that one I'll be ready!
I love the dark tower series and the audio book was amazing. great performance that draws you deeper in the story.
This is one of the weaker Dark Tower books in my opinion, but still good. I don't want to spoil anything, but those who have read through at least Wolves will have sensed how meta the story is getting. It really doesn't do all that much to further the plot, but does give a sense of the experience that King went through in writing the Dark Tower books.
In any case, audiobook is a great way to push through this one, and it's relatively quick and painless.
