Background information on the world of the gunslinger. And I liked the story within a story within a story framework. But then I'm odd that way.
I suppose it has a resemblance to the format of Wizard and Glass.
I adore King, but his reading leaves something to be desired.
Only to the narration. I missed George Guidall. I miss Frank Muller even more, but he's no longer with us.
Other than wishing King wasn't the narrator, I thought the book was a nice addition to the Dark Tower series.
I'm 38, and a geek, so I'm probably the target audience for this book, and I loved it unashamedly. I downloaded it to my droid and took it everywhere I went over 3 days, listening whenever I had a bit of time to spare. The references come thick and fast, but there were few I couldn't place. It was a little like Snow Crash meets Neuromancer meets Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which isn't too surprising, as it both draws on and references all three. In addition, Will Wheaton's narration is great. I enjoyed listening to him narrate as much as I enjoyed the story itself.
