"It is King at his most ebullient. He's at his best here...as a storyteller who can set pages on fire." (Publishers Weekly)
"The writing is expectedly imaginative, the story line engrossing, and the characters vivid." (Library Journal)
If you're reading the Dark Tower series, you know this is the 4th book. Unlike the other 3, this book has a different focus. It is a story of love and friendship. Through this book we learn much more about the past of Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger. Stephen King does not typically do romance novels, but he does so brilliantly here, capturing the essence and infatuation that comes with young love. This is a gut-wrenching novel, one that will move you if you invest yourself fully in the story and characters.
The bar scene with Cuthbert, Alain, and Roland was great!
Frank Muller's deep and raspy voice provides a perfect tone to the story. I was skeptical of his ability to portray female characters, such as Susan Delgado, but he did so admirably in this outing.
The Gunslinger's Past
Way at the top. Top 10, easy.
Have to be Roland. Such a survivor.
Same thing ... Roland. Frank Muller does every character just as described.
The end of Roland's tale in Magis is heart-wrenching.
This novel tells the story of Roland's past. A lot if questions were answered.
I like how it explains a lot of things from all past books. Also it sets up the rest of the stories very well
He brings all characters to life and you can picture each character by his voice. Even the female voices.
This book answers a lot of questions about Roland but only to leave you with more. I really enjoy this series. I feel like I have become a part of their little group and long to get the tower with them.
This audiobook is number 2 on my list of Stephen King's work preceeded only by book one of this series.
The characters are brought to life so well.
Jonas was the best character
I felt a great connection to Roland in this book
The end of Blane was a great twist! Eddie is actually good for something... Roland, as always, keeps the story enjoyable.
Jake. What a sweet boy.
Roland. He's a thousand years old and must have tons to share.
I love this series. Frank Muller is a narrator that I would just listen to a story for the sake of hearing him read it. His inflection and variety are really amazing. I was nearly heart broken when I discovered he didn't finish the series but George Guidall is really amazing as well. I suppose Mr. Mullers interpretation of Eddy's voice kind of threw me off but thats the only thing that comes close to a complaint.
Over and Over again, while Roland's story is heartbreaking it is a great read.
Cuthbert Allgood, because while he's good natured and fun loving he can still go to work when necessary.
The mexican standoff that wasn't
The last 1/3 of the book is very moving.
