    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    Where does Wizard and Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is one of the best stories I have ever come across. I have known for quite sometime, as many do, of Stephen King's endless talent!

    However, what really makes this audio book stand above all others is the Narrator.
    Frank's voice is, for lack of a better word, magic. I could listen to him all day. Any praise I give this guy could not do him justice. I HIGHLY recommend that you listen to Frank's craft and see for yourself!


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This man's voice brings these characters to life in the most beautiful and personal way.

    Stephen king himself said it best :

    "(When Frank reads the blind will
    see, the lame will walk, and the deaf
    will hear."

    It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden...and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

    TL;DR A good mystery, sufficient character development, good backdrop/setting immersion.

    To expand on my TL;DR (which I put at the top for easier access)

    Overall, the story is interesting. You definitely want to know whodunnit. Not an obvious or too predictable story-line, takes a few twists. Also, the relationship between the main characters is nice to watch grow.

    Character development is alright - I'd say right in the middle. There are a slew of other characters from other books I can think of with whom the reader has a deeper relationship, and there are quite a few with shallower relationships. You get to know the characters on a good friend level.

    The backdrop/setting was pretty good. You get a nice feel for the island and the attitude of the family. The descriptions of the environment let you feel what it's like there, without boring you.
