    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    "Great First Listen"
    Overall

    This was the first download I got from Audible. I had read the first two Dark Tower books the conventional way. Very well narrated and got me hooked on audible books. If you're thinking of listening to this book you have probably already listened/read the first two. In my opinion this one is the best of the three. The good news is that there are another 4 books to listen to.

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    "Try the abridged version"
    Overall

    The narration is good and the ideas are good the first time you hear them. However, the whole book should have been condensed to about a third of the length. After the first 5 hours I finally gave up listening. Go for the abridged version.
