Did not read it
The end ... the ending ... I just finished the book and I had to log in to convey my feelings ...
I can honestly say I am speechless ... I feel like I just got off a 2 day marathon of riding an endless emotional roller coaster. The familiar voice of Mike Talbot's witty sarcastic humor punching through an endless sea of horror and misery. I feel like it was two books in one the first half is a Romeo and Juliet tale that somehow gracefully spins into a horror flick that had me so captivated I listened to it non-stop and had it done in less that 48 hrs.
This brings Mark Tufo to a new level... not only can he write some of the best Sci-Fi Thrillers that keeps me coming back ... but now he is in my ranks of upper echelon of horror thrillers!
I loved the Story about Tim and his adventure. I wish more of the book was about that adventure and maybe a little less about how he got there. It was a nice break from the normal tower adventure and I always love hearing about Roland's past.
This book reminded me of a mix between Wizard and Glass and The Legend of King Arthur. The plot rapidly takes the reader into Roland's past, as a young gunslinger. Unexpectedly, the book also turns into a trifecta of tales when one story enters another, and then another within those. The transitions were very good and fluid. I was never confused into thinking I had somehow fell into the confusing dream world of Inception.
I have read about half of King's books and will continue to read them all.
I was very excited when I heard about the new dark tower book as a King fan and Dark Tower nut. After I was done with the last Dark Tower, I felt empty and sad that the journey was over. As soon as I heard Rolands voice again, I had a tremor shoot up my spine. It was good to hear him again.
The only critisim I have about this book was the voice acting. Sorry Stephen... stick to the writing. I often listen in my car or on my phone and the volume was so low I couldn't hear with my windows down. When I could hear I couldnt pick out the voices between the four gunslingers. This was only confusing for about a chapter or two and I eventually got used to it.
