    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.

    I did manage to finish this book but I dont know why. I never got anything out of the story, it was horribly slow and overall I had an extreme dislike for it. I have no idea why anyone would like it.
    I am a fan of other Steven King books but not this series.

    Those who were left behind after the Rapture must now make a crucial decision. Each person must choose whether to receive the mark of the beast, or die. Never has faith in God been more important for the group of believers called the Tribulation Force, who now face danger on all sides. Valiantly, they continue to urge new followers to accept Christ's love.

    Stefanie says: "Narrator Ruins It"
    "Great Christian Fiction"
    Overall

    If you keep in mind that this is fiction based on the Bible you will have the right frame of reference. While a lot of the story does have ties back into the Bible it does not intend on replacing it. Its an easy place for some to "get the bug" for faith although ultimately they need to be pointed to the only true authoritative source, the Bible.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the series and recommended it to many friends. Unlike the movies, I found the books well done, and well produced.

    As the battered earth reels under judgments from heaven, Global Community leader Nicolae Carpathia tightens the screws on anyone who refuses to proclaim total allegiance to him. He has a million of his enemies just where he wants them: massed at Petra and within striking distance of devastating firepower. Meanwhile, the Tribulation Force is compromised, forcing Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, and the others to run for their lives.

    The smash hit Left Behind saga, the best-selling inspirational series of all time, comes to its extraordinary conclusion in this thrilling audiobook. Glorious Appearing picks up the action following the cosmic battle of the ages, and not all the members of the Tribulation Force have survived!

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    "a VERY slow start"
    Overall

    Until he gets shipwrecked this book has little content/value that I find to be useful. While it does set the stage for some philosophical thoughts later it does it so slowly as to be tedious. After he wrecked I found the detailed description of survival interesting.
    Overall I wasnt a big fan of the book. Its over-hyped.

    When Earth herself lay under siege by an enemy humankind could not defeat, mankind undertook one last throw of the dice: Operation Ark. Earth's final colonizing expedition was meant to build a new civilization, on a planet so distant even the Gbaba might never find it, and without the high-tech infrastructure whose emissions might betray its location.

    Alison says: "David Weber always good"
    "Good story but like watching paint dry"
    Overall

    I stuck through this book through a miserable commute. With little else to do in the car I have a high tolerance for slow stories. This pushed the limit. I'd buy the abridged version or skip it.

    I did like the story that developed but they're going for a 7 book series that may take the rest of your life to listen to if you can stick with it. I wont be buying the sequels.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    "Ok if you get past the narration"
    Overall

    I just finished this and did all 3 books in the series in a row. The narrator for this one was bad but if you stick with it you get used to it. It should be a requirement to listen to the other ones before narrating a new one. And they did stupid things with reverb etc when he was "thinking." Bad production overall.

    The book and story itself I enjoyed and after a while could ignore the poor production quality. If you liked the other books and think you can ignore production issues then get the audiobook. If not buy the real book.
