    The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

    Would you listen to Song of Susannah again? Why?

    I would listen to this again (in fact, this is my second time through the DT story). Another great reading, and this is the book where you start getting lots of answers to the DT mystery. While books 4 and 5 are tangentially related to Roland's overarching story, Song of Susannah picks up the arch and drives the plot further ahead than any book since Drawing of the Three. If you are thinking of stopping the series at Wolves of the Callah, do yourself a favor and pick up this one.

    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.

    D says: "He got the idea from a near traffic accident"
    "Very Underwhelming Book by Sanderson"

    Story

    Like many others, I came to Sanderson from Wheel of Time (where he did an exceptional job finishing the series). I've listened to his mistborn series and his new epic fantasy, Way of Kings. Both are good (the latter is better). This book is simplistic, predictable (in a rather annoying way) and exceptionally derivative of his mistborn series. Small group of people fighting against a patriarchal, overpowered leader. The conversations, interactions, and goals are all so exceptionally similar to mistborn, I'd call plagiarism if it weren't his own work (that's a bit of hyperbole, but not much). Decent effort, but your time is better spent elsewhere.
