Say something about yourself!
I get that this is supposed to be a thought provoking book but it just lost me with the amount of detail that it would dive into. I feel it could have been shorter because there was a lot of unnecessary, long , drawn out detail.
Yup, going to finish the series.
Yes, been waiting on a company to finally pick it up and make a movie or series of it.
After being somewhat disappointed by the first book in the series, and after reading the reviews, I guess I had high expectations for this book. However, even though it's much better than the first one, it's still relatively slow. Stephen King is still setting up his story, and the book continues to feel like an introduction with the real action still a while away. However, it's amazingly detailed, and it's definitely a must-read for the rest of the series, since most of the main characters are introduced here.
The least helpful reviewer on audible.
Yes. I've listened to it a few times. This is where the Dark Tower series really starts getting good.
Frank Muller was the golden god of audio books. The best I've ever heard (and I've heard A LOT!) He died from motorcycle injuries and the world moved on... but there are other worlds than these.
Give me your tired heroines , your huddled hobbits yearning to breathe free; the wretched refuse of your deleted pages, and I will read.
One of the things I love most about Stephen King is his ability to poke fun at himself. But I can't imagine that he would want his book to be read this way.
Frank Muller paints every sentence as if it's the most damning piece of evidence in a huge conspiracy. He has a wholly unnatural cadence that starts all strung together sing-songy, ending in summer camp ghost story danger whisper italics. There are points where a bit of noir may help with the story, but he uses it on every phrase regardless of content. He says, "Roland ate a sandwich" in exactly the same way as "Roland awoke startled to find himself covered in blood." To call it annoying would be a kindness.
The worst part is that he doesn't do this for other characters in the story. They all have their own distinct (if usually overblown) style, which means Mr. Muller simply doesn't understand the main character. This is not a hyperbolic Clint Eastwood in a spaghetti western. Roland is pedantic, analytical, and humorless. He resents people splashing their personal drama all over him simply because it interferes with his objective. Muller reads the whole thing like a pulpy detective novel. He couldn't have gotten it more wrong.
I defiantly recommend this if you listened to gunslinger
Nothing compares to this roller coaster ride
No but fantastic reading
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
George Guidall, the narrator of the first book, is an amazing talent. I look forward to when he returns to this series with book 5...however...Frank Muller IS The Gunslinger. His talents and abilities shine through on this book unlike any narrator of any book I have listened to. I may be a little biased due to my unyielding love for this series, but this audiobook is a real treat.
One of the best stories of the series, The Drawing of the Three leads the listener into the world of the Gunslinger, and then into the worlds of The Drawing, right from the beginning...and you will never want to leave. One of the biggest compliments that I can give a book is one that I give this book. As I neared the end, I was at once enthralled to gain the climax, but also melancholy that the journey was nearly over.
DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!!
I would most definitely suggest this to a friend. I can not express to you how well Frank Muller's performance of the characters are in this book. I have never heard an author get so involved into the characters, its as if he is possessed by each one and you forget that this is just one person reading this book. This is by far the best narration I have ever heard in my ENTIRE life. WOW!!
Odetta Walker, Frank Muller brought her to life in this audiobook!
No I have not but anything he narrates I will buy regardless of the book.
I feel the audio version is one in the same with the print version. It is the same story afterall. However, Frank Muller's performance is excellent and the different voices do add quite a lot.
At the end when Roland forces Odetta and Detta to see each other and become Susannah.
Only the ones he has done for the other Dark Tower books. That is, the original recording of The Gunslinger, The Wastelands and Wizard and Glass. They are all equally engaging and incredible performances.
I think any book is too long to listen in one sitting.
I gave this a 5 star rating. The only reason I did that is because it is a great story and flawlessly performed. However, there is a larger problem. That problem is how audible packaged this book. The tracks and discs are not split up properly. How hard would it have been to rip the discs properly from the original pressing? Not that hard. It is a pity that they don't manufacture the CD's anymore. I would much rather have had them. I imagine this is a problem with all of audible's books.
Book 1 was just the set-up and I didn't really care for it but book II is great. I can't wait to get to the next book and very pleased I listened to the Drawing of Three.
