If you're reading the Dark Tower series, you know this is the 4th book. Unlike the other 3, this book has a different focus. It is a story of love and friendship. Through this book we learn much more about the past of Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger. Stephen King does not typically do romance novels, but he does so brilliantly here, capturing the essence and infatuation that comes with young love. This is a gut-wrenching novel, one that will move you if you invest yourself fully in the story and characters.
The bar scene with Cuthbert, Alain, and Roland was great!
Frank Muller's deep and raspy voice provides a perfect tone to the story. I was skeptical of his ability to portray female characters, such as Susan Delgado, but he did so admirably in this outing.
