  • The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

    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.

    Story

    The final book of the Tower series was quite a let down for me, but fortunately Guidall was reading it for me. Guidall continued his excellent performance of the characters and kept the story going to the end. Unfortunately, King seemed to just be adding a bunch of words and dredging old story lines. I was imagining when King was talking with Eddie and Roland, they lost interest and left. Later, I imagined Roland wishing he could return to Maine to pistol whip King, saying something like,"if you are going to create a silly spider son, make him scary and tough." This final book had little suspense and frankly, I was tired of the rose description wishing that the king would use a weed wacker. That is a bit harsh, but I was never on the edge of my seat during this book, a position King usually directs you.

  • Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: A George Smiley Novel

    Story

    The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla - his Moscow Centre nemesis - and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

    carl801 says: "Le Carre remains the gold standard"
    "Jayston powers a great story into a great listen"

    Jayston is a perfect fit for the Smiley series. First off, Michael Jayston sounds like Alec Guiness, so you are already listening to George Smiley. He also alters his voice and accent for the various characters throughout this book and the others in the series.
