"Prime King...very suspenseful. An epic in the making." (Kirkus Reviews)
"With The Drawing of the Three...King says, 'I found my voice'...Did he ever." (The Denver Post)
Although in the beginning I didn't like Frank Muller's narration at all, by the middle of the audio book I was loving his voice. It fits very well in the gunslinger's world.The introduction of new characters and the interwinding of their stories was great to follow along with.
My favorite character is Roland. He is the coolest character in the story, and he is also very resourceful. His story is ominous and makes him that much cooler.
My favorite character he performed was also Roland. His ominous voice fit perfectly with Roland and his story.
I would take out Susannah to see how pretty she is in real life. Also, I think that she has a lot of experiences that people can learn from.
When I first started to listen to the audio book, I really didn't like Frank's narration. However, by the middle of the book I started to enjoy his narration. I am now on the 4th book and am loving his voice.
I found that a few other people felt the same way about Frank as I did when I first started reading. What I would say to those people is to give him a chance, listen to a good part of the book and then make your decision about him. I think he does a great job.
This is not the type of book that I normally listen to but damn if I just couldn't quit listening! I normally listen as I am falling asleep, but I listened to this at work and on the way to and from work. A must have for your collection. Now, on to book 3!!
The story was wonderful , especially as read by this narrator. He handles the characters and pacing with grace, and makes it hard to stop listening. As for the story, one of my all time favorites by King.
I'm so excited to be in worlds of these people. The struggle is so entertaining and riveting that you want to cheat and read the ending.. I'm buying the books one at a time.
You won't be disappointed with the second book of the series. I've never read any of Mr. King's work, (I don't particularly like his typical genre) but now I can understand why purple enjoy it. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat right till the end. The narrator does an excellent job of keeping characters unique, and the sound he uses for the Lobstrocities is unnerving.
if you haven't then you should. If you have then give it another turn. These are stories that get better with every listen/read.
These books are Stephen King's LORD OF THE RINGS and having come this series well before those fantasy staples, I must admit, they are MY LOTR as well. Filled with epic battles of old. Friends, long gone but well remembered. Quests to be taken, battles to be fought and on and forward we go with our Hero's. Faster paced and more suspense on every page, we are dealing with a gunslinger who is wounded and sick as he attempts to "draw" unwilling, would be gunslingers from different times in our world. It sound confusing, it is not. King is such a wonderful storyteller and no natural at this tale, that is makes perfect sense. A brilliant book by a brilliant writer and read for you by the late great Frank Mueller. He gives so much humanity to Roland and his little group. Truly one of the greats. He is missed. Now, onto book 3, The Waste Land...,my favorite in the series!
