    For the first time in unabridged audio! A small Kansas town has turned into a killing ground. Is it a serial killer, a man with the need to destroy? Or is it a darker force, a curse upon the land? Amid golden cornfields, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers evil in the blood of America's heart.

    Story

    I am so happy that this has finally been made available in unabridged format! I've listened to this book on CD numerous times, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how they managed to cut 10 hours of audio out to make the abridged version

    That aside, this is an absolute page turner featuring Pendergast, and introducing us to Cory Swanson, who re-appears in later books. Excellent book, and highly recommended!

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Story

    While I enjoyed the story overall, even though it seemed to take a while to get started, and then seemed to meander around kind of aimlessly, what I absolutely HATE about this audio book is the "Music" selection between chapters. Just as I'd start getting into the story, and really getting tensed up wanting to know what was going to happen next, the chapter would change, and this god awful "music" would come on, which would pull me completely out of the book. There were a couple of times I wanted to claw the earbuds out of my ears, it was so awful. I'm going to finish the book, just to find out how the story ends, but I'm pretty sure I won't listen to this one again.

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    Story

    This is easily the best of the Dark Tower books by Steven King, and is probably the one with the broadest appeal. It takes the classic backdrop of a spaghetti western, set in the Gunslinger's work. The action is fast paced throughout the book, and you can certainly enjoy this one without having read any of the other books.

    If you've enjoyed the Dark Tower books so far, this should be more than satisfying, and if you haven't read any of them, but have enjoyed westerns in the past, you should give this book a try!
