Audible makes me love being stuck in traffic :)
I love this book. Each separate drawing is its own little sub-story, and by the end of it, you love Roland, Eddie and Susanna. I was so glad that they found each other.
Frank Muller does a stellar job narrating this book. I absolutely love his Eddie Dean. I was very sad to learn why he stopped narrating the series and I wish he and his family the best. George Guidall does a wonderful job filling in for Mr. Muller and finishing the series, and Mr. Guidall is a very talented narrator, but sometimes a book fits a narrator so much it was like it was written for him to narrate and no amount of talent can overcome such a perfect fit.
The development of the characters from useless, broken creatures into people with a common goal...even though they had no real idea of the goal...was amazing to watch. I hope the goal is worth the struggle.
The Gunslinger...of course
Roland. Frank Muller does a great job with all characters, but it has to be Roland
While the first novel in the series is pretty slow, The Dark Tower II takes you on a ride. The characters are great, and the narration is easy to listen to!
YES, YES, YES. The Gunslinger hooked me, barely. However, Mr. King's brilliance in this book brought me to the boat, netted me, took me home and fried me up for dinner. An amazing tale that I can't wait to complete. There is never a dull moment. Every aspect of the story is integral to the climax. One falls in love with the Ka'tet; but, it is a wary love, because one must guard your emotion for fear of loss on their dangerous journey to the Dark Tower. But, make no mistake about it, after reading The Drawing of the Three, nothing will stand in your way to make that journey. Incredible story that reaches into the heart of any human's psyche.
Very difficult to have a favorite character because you love them all. But, if I had to choose a favorite, it would have to be Eddie Dean. His loyalty is undeniable and he has his human flaws that this reader can relate in some ways.
Mr. Muller has an uncanny ability to really capture the character's voice and, more than that, their true humanity. It is almost impossible to not believe there are different people interacting with each other. He is extremely talented and gifted at the art of story telling. Expecially, the accent of Eddie Dean. He is a New Yorker through and through. AWESOME JOB!!!
Many moments move you in this book but the conversation between Eddie and Roland at the end would have to stand out. That was the point when Mr. King was enjoying his fish for dinner and smiling. The journey to the Dark Tower is one we are all stuck taking whether we want to or not, now.
Mr. King's ability to communicate the most esoteric subjects to the reader in such a way that they are tangible and real is quite remarkable. It is a gift that keeps on giving. Thank you for sharing with us, Mr. King.
Exciting, cool, mysterious
Roland of course. He's just the coolest..but I love them all.
I love his voices and the guy from the first book is just not good! It's easier to listen to when the reader is Frank Muller.
The entire book is great.
I love this series. Wish they were all read by Frank Muller.
The narrator should move away from the mic ... the deep intake gets to be ineffective when every sentence is performed that way. The substories are very interesting, but I still have no idea what the objective of the Gunslinger is. I need to see it soon to stay engaged.
One of the best stories in the series. Frank did a nice job but I don't care for how he does Eddie, so much so that I dont know if I want to listen to the next 2 books.There is a lot of static in this audio book, but worth a listen.
Roland entering the prisoner door and what follows...genius!
The pusher, this is the character based on the idea that in new York there is a type of serial killer that pushes people into traffic to kill them
This book totally redeems the gunslinger,I can't wait till the next book!
The second book in the Dark Tower series picks up right where the first left off. The book builds on the first in nearly every way. Frank Muller does an excellent job narrating the story.
