    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    What made the experience of listening to Wizard and Glass the most enjoyable?

    The end of Blane was a great twist! Eddie is actually good for something... Roland, as always, keeps the story enjoyable.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Any additional comments?

    I usually stick to King and Koontz, but have read/heard all of them. I'm desprately looking for a new author/series to keep my attention and Steelheart was pretty good. I'd definately listen to a sequel. The ending was well thought out for Steelheart's weakness.
    Entertaining though not a book I'd listen to more than once.

    Spencer Grant had no idea what drew him to the bar with the red door. He thought he would just sit down, have a slow beer or two, and talk to a stranger. He couldn't know that it would lead to a narrow escape from a bungalow targeted by a SWAT team. Or that it would leave him a wanted man. Now he is on the run from mysterious and ruthless men. He is in love with a woman he knows next to nothing about. And he is hiding from a past he can't fully remember.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    While I like more paranormal stories, this was a fun book to pass the time in traffic. Neat concepts in the story, but a bit unbelievable at times. That's why they call it fiction though...

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Would you listen to The Wind Through the Keyhole again? Why?

    LOVED this story! What a great addition to the saga. Fills in some of Roland's back story and gives you a tale inside a tale.

    Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Stephen King outdid himself in this one! LOVED this book! The way he tied in Jake's death in preparation of the next book was genius!

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    If you could sum up The Gunslinger in three words, what would they be?

    I listented to this because it was a segway to get to the next stories.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I really didn't like the narrator and it's a bummer knowing he's the one that did some of the later books.

    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Frank Muller really portrays Roland well.
