I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
Made it more understandabl
I don't know, I just found it was a little back and forth!!!
I thought it would be a lot better
I'm told that this is just the first step in what turns out to be a great series and that this is just an odd setup for the rest. It wasn't that I didn't like it, I did but I felt oddly disconnected to all the characters but Roland. I'm not sure if that's how it is supposed to be or just how it effected me. I think the background of the desert is part of the problem for me. Ick!
I hope the following ones are as great as I'm told they are. King certainly has the talent for a great epic. I don't read all his books but I have read some and like most of them. I don't mind weird but I have a tough time with scary.
I think that once I've made it through the entire series this is one to go back to and pick up things that I may have missed the first time.
As for the narrator, he was wonderful. I think that is probably the one thing about this book that no one would argue much about.
Yes, I would recommend this title to a friend, but only for them to learn the background for the books that follow in the series. That was a review that I read, and I agree. I had trouble making it through this book. But I have enjoyed previous Stephen King books so much that I gave it a chance. Dark Tower I was not that great. But the series gets better. I don't really care for George Guidall reading, but I really like Frank Muller, who does The Dark Tower II, II, and IV.
I hoped for the story to get better.
I guess he did OK, but I don't really care for George Guidall. The first book that I heard him read, Everyman, I did not like. He became that character for me. Whenever I hear him, I think of that character.
Yes, because it was short, and gave me the background for the stories (books) that followed.
A mysterious man in a mysterious world. You learn about both, as the story unfolds, in a way that makes you want to know more - engaging dialog, revealing flashbacks, and nail biting action. And George Guidall brings it to life with top notch narration.
It was ok, but very hard to get into.
Not listen to the other ones
I didn't enjoy the narrator's overly dry reading, and i didn't particularly like the book.
Not having read or listened to anything else in the series, i am hesitant to say.
Not familiar with enough narrators to comment
It could make a very good franchise. I really want to see Josh Holloway as Roland.
Again, i haven't read anything else in the series, and it may take me a while to get around to it given this sluggish, taxing book.
It depends on if you would rather listen or read.
In its own class
going through the tunnel
I expected the darkness but was surprised at the character development. I did find it a challenge sometimes to follow the progress of the story.
I have read the second book and will complete the series.
George Guidall is one of my top five favorite narrators, he manages to inhabit characters and I always feel he is invested in the story, not just telling it.
Since this is part of a series and King has such a huge fan base, I think it would be a challenge much like trying to put Gabaldon on the screen. But I do think it would be a great TV miniseries.
I was pleasantly surprised by King, my experience of him had only been the movies of
The Shining and Carrie. While this is a dark fantasy with about the amount of violence I expected, I did become involved in wanting to know what would happen next and how the relationships would resolve. I listened to 11-22-63 between the first and second books and loved that so I have added King to my list of authors to search when I'm ready for something new.
