This book brings to light Roland?s reason for his tremendous single-minded quest for the Dark Tower. Stephen King has some fun with a Wizard of OZ like metaphor, and lays to rest forever the thought that Gunslinger Roland is anything but a deeply emotional human being. His treatment of the love relationship between Roland and Susan Delgado is poignant and masterful. The bonds between Jake, Oy, Susana Dean, Eddie, and Roland continue to grow ever deeper as does the strength of their Kef. A must read even for the uninitiated. The beauty of the Dark tower series of books is that due to Stephen Kings brilliant writing style, they each stand on their own and could be re-read often individually or sequentially with continued pleasure. I must add that the narration by Frank Muller is one of if not the best I have ever heard. This book is pure audible gold!
This is quite a long book covering a lot of the CIA's past yet brings the reader right up to date. It is full of fascinating twists and turns, and is narrated exceedingly well. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it. I also found it to be very educational, from a geopolitical perspective.
I felt as if I was right in the middle of the action! It was a real treat to hear Arnold's actual voice used liberally through out the book. This is fast paced hair raising action that allows you to explore the characters in much greater depth than in the movies. A must read (listen) :-) even if you have never seen one of the Terminator flicks.
Very enjoyable, Thanks for bringing us this title Audible!
