The story was wonderful , especially as read by this narrator. He handles the characters and pacing with grace, and makes it hard to stop listening. As for the story, one of my all time favorites by King.
I'm so excited to be in worlds of these people. The struggle is so entertaining and riveting that you want to cheat and read the ending.. I'm buying the books one at a time.
You won't be disappointed with the second book of the series. I've never read any of Mr. King's work, (I don't particularly like his typical genre) but now I can understand why purple enjoy it. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat right till the end. The narrator does an excellent job of keeping characters unique, and the sound he uses for the Lobstrocities is unnerving.
if you haven't then you should. If you have then give it another turn. These are stories that get better with every listen/read.
These books are Stephen King's LORD OF THE RINGS and having come this series well before those fantasy staples, I must admit, they are MY LOTR as well. Filled with epic battles of old. Friends, long gone but well remembered. Quests to be taken, battles to be fought and on and forward we go with our Hero's. Faster paced and more suspense on every page, we are dealing with a gunslinger who is wounded and sick as he attempts to "draw" unwilling, would be gunslingers from different times in our world. It sound confusing, it is not. King is such a wonderful storyteller and no natural at this tale, that is makes perfect sense. A brilliant book by a brilliant writer and read for you by the late great Frank Mueller. He gives so much humanity to Roland and his little group. Truly one of the greats. He is missed. Now, onto book 3, The Waste Land...,my favorite in the series!
This is one of my favorite out of all of The Dark Tower series. This book starts intruding you to the rest of the characters and brings together some of the un-tied ideas of the first novel.
