    Raskolnikov, a student in St. Petersburg, murders an old woman, a money-lender, to prove his theory that violence purifies the strong. But no sooner is the deed done than Raskolnikov begins to feel remorse. What follows is one of the greatest psychological studies in world literature.

    Overall

    I've long wished to find time to read this famous (or, perhaps, infamous) novel, but never found the time. Here was--I thought--the perfect solution. However, the reader of this audiobook drones on as if the English language is new to him. The delivery is stilted and choppy, there is absolutely no personality involved, and the reader could be simply reciting a shopping list. Definitely disappointing.

    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.

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

    George Guidall is one of the great book readers. I've listened to many of his reads, often only because he was the one reading it. He, like Scott Brick, is one of those people I could listen to for hours. And often do!


    Any additional comments?

    This is great King, and well worth a listen.
