  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Michael says: "The Dark Tower Review - Part One"
    "Best Collection Ever-Gunslinger, Take Me Away...."

    If you could sum up The Gunslinger in three words, what would they be?

    Beginning of excellence.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gunslinger?

    The memorable scene under the mountain. It points to who and what Roland truly is.


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

    Mr. Guidall reads the novel in such a way that it is easy to follow. You don't miss much with him.


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

    No, although I guess you could if you really wanted to.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the beginning of a collection of seven novels. In my opinion this is the BEST story EVER. I have listened to it/read it several times and it never gets old.

    It’s the summer of 1960 and in the small town of Elm Haven, Illinois, five twelve-year-old boys are forging the powerful bonds that a lifetime of change will not break. From sunset bike rides to shaded hiding places in the woods, the boys’ days are marked by all of the secrets and silences of an idyllic childhood. But amid the sun-drenched cornfields, their loyalty will be pitilessly tested.

    Jeff says: "Excellent well-developed thriller / youth story"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Summer of Night to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Summer of Night to and why?

    Its in the realm of It. You have a group of children fighting against a force that adults refuse to see or acknowledge. In this group you also have diverse social differences.


    What about Dan John Miller’s performance did you like?

    He was able to make a clear representation of each character


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

    No. I finished in a little over a week


    Any additional comments?

    The imagery, sense of nostalgia, and suspense made for an awesome experience.
