    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    It's hard to put a finger on just where this book went wrong, it's pacing is off, many story elements are downright silly and the ending will likely frustrate rather than satisfy.


    Did The Dark Tower inspire you to do anything?

    Yeah, lay off the King books for a while.

  • Wizard and Glass: The Dark Tower IV

    Story
    (1933)

    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.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wizard and Glass to be better than the print version?

    I read the print version back when it came out and enjoyed it for what it was, I would consider it the better version if only because I skimmed though the middle part of the book in an effort to move the story along.


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

    I found his accents really helped bring the setting of the book out more than just reading it would have.


    Any additional comments?

    It is worth a listen just to give you the ending The Wastelands should have had and the story Roland tells the group is interesting but it hardly moves the plot of the Dark Tower series forward.
