    Story

    Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger is a haunting figure; a loner, on a spellbinding journey into good and evil, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own. In his first step towards the powerful and mysterious Dark Tower, Roland encounters an alluring woman named Alice, begins a friendship with Jake, a kid from New York, and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.

    Jacobus says: "A Surrealistic Western that almost feels familiar"
    "Great start for a great tale"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of the character of Roland, from a mysterious unknown character into a man with a dark past, and a dark long journey to travel.


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

    Gravelly voice, just what you'd imagine a gunslinger to sound like.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Wild west meets the end of the world

    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Alchemy of Air to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Karl Bosch. Tireless dedication to the process, and for somewhat defying the Nazism.


    Have you listened to any of Adam Verner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
