I enjoyed having Stephen read this one...
Just getting back into the gunslingers world (my adult version of a blanket)
My fist audio book was the Drawing of the Three. I shoplifted the audio book in high school...that's how bad I wanted it and that audio book is why I continue to listen today (FYI-that item was the only thing I ever stole in my life). Anyway, you can see that I was hooked on the series after The Gunslinger. Stephen read that first audio version of Drawing of the three and that's the main reason I was glad to have him reading this one too.
That being said, the previous readers of the series are technically much better than Stephen. Actually, Frank Muller and George Guidall are two of my favorites. But, I always wondered how Stephen would have read the rest of the series. When a non-author reads a book, you (at least I do) sometimes wonder if the reader is interpreting inflection, tone, etc. how the author heard it in his/her mind as it was written.
If you've heard Stephen read in the past, you probably going to be ok with, or even love this reading. If not, you may be put off by the narration.
