In this third volume, several months have passed, and Roland's two new tet-mates have become trained gunslingers. Eddie Dean has given up heroin, and Odetta's two selves have joined, becoming the stronger and more balanced personality of Susannah Dean. But while battling The Pusher in 1977 New York, Roland altered ka by saving the life of Jake Chambers, a boy who - in Roland's world - has already died. Now Roland and Jake exist in different worlds, but they are joined by the same madness: the paradox of double memories.
Roland, Susannah, and Eddie must draw Jake into Mid-World and then follow the Path of the Beam all the way to the Dark Tower. Along the way our tet stumbles into the ruined city of Lud, and are caught between the warring gangs of the Pubes and the Grays. The only way out of Lud is to wake Blaine the Mono, an insane train that has a passion for riddling, and for suicidal journeys.

I am Christie of Matthews, daughter of Chris. and this book made me remember the face of my fathers!
This is my favorite of the Dark Tower books. Frank Muller at his best. I miss him so. I will probably get way more than my money's worth with this on for I will read it over and over in my many trips to the Dark Tower. Long days and pleasant nights.
I love to love space-opera and fanatasy books. Sometimes my eyes are bigger than my ears when it comes to audio books....
I would say that this ranks in the top 10 easily. I have almost 100 titles in my audio library right now so I don't say that lightly.
Frank Muller. The story is astounding but his narration outshines even the intricate nuances of Stephen King's Midworld.
His voices are so convincing and effortless. Even with as many characters as there are in this series, you could listen to Frank's performance with zero dialogue attribution and it would be entirely understandable.
I honestly can't say. It would spoil things which I do not intend to do for you. Pay close attention in the last "part" of the book - you'll be glad you did when you read the next one.
This book is a gem. The narration cements its place in my top 10 list.
This is a great book and great series. Very complex but once you get invested you have to listen!!
loved it !! you realy start to feel a strong attachment for the main characters and the development of the bad guys are takeing shape . can't wait to hear the next book.
I love this series more with each book I finish progessing through this epic quest and answering and raising more question and mystery all the time can't wait for the next book after this ones cliff hanger
I enjoyed the characters and the way King just draws you into his story. This was a fantastic followup to the Drawing of The Three. I did not like the ending in that it did not feel like a good conclusion, with the conclusion really being with the beginning of Wizard and Glass.
His voices and tone give an amazing energy to the characters of Eddie and Roland.
Susanna Dean. She just seems like an amazingly strong person.
