Publisher's Summary

In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero: a long-ago romance of witchery and evil, of the beautiful, unforgettable Susan Delgado, of the Big Coffin Hunters and Reah of the Coos. And when his tale is finished, Roland confronts a man who goes by many names, a man who "darkles and tincts" and who may hold the key to the Dark Tower.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever heard. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. Don't miss the other volumes of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.

    Story
    "The bonds of love and friendship"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wizard and Glass?

    The bar scene with Cuthbert, Alain, and Roland was great!


    What about Frank Muller’s performance did you like?

    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.


    If you could rename Wizard and Glass, what would you call it?

    The Gunslinger's Past

    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.

    Story
    "If you read the first three this is a must read"
    What made the experience of listening to Wizard and Glass the most enjoyable?

    This novel tells the story of Roland's past. A lot if questions were answered.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how it explains a lot of things from all past books. Also it sets up the rest of the stories very well


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings all characters to life and you can picture each character by his voice. Even the female voices.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Wizard and Glass the most enjoyable?

    The end of Blane was a great twist! Eddie is actually good for something... Roland, as always, keeps the story enjoyable.

    "Great Audiobook!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wizard and Glass to be better than the print version?

    It's convenient.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake. What a sweet boy.

    Roland.


    If you could take any character from Wizard and Glass out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Roland. He's a thousand years old and must have tons to share.

    "Perfect"

    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.

    "So Depressing It Hurts..."
    Would you listen to Wizard and Glass again? Why?

    Over and Over again, while Roland's story is heartbreaking it is a great read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cuthbert Allgood, because while he's good natured and fun loving he can still go to work when necessary.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The mexican standoff that wasn't


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last 1/3 of the book is very moving.
