"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)
couldn't put this down, unbelievably detailed and vivid, the dark tower series is absolutely Stephen kings master work. this is my third time through the series this time through I will be listening to wind through the keyhole next. I will say it is awful going from the narration of a master like frank muller to the voice of Stephen king.....they may be his words but they sound so much more life-like coming out of the mouth of muller. frank muller did a superb job for wizard and glass, I highly recommend it.
Why the complaints? I loved learning about the young Roland. I want to soak up every morsel of information pertaining to characters I have invested so much time getting to know. Huge epic stories deserve such attention to detail. Kudos to King for delivering such a great tale to his faithful followers.
Mostly backstory but incredibly well done. I loved Roland's love story of Susan Delgado. At first I kept thinking, can we get this over with and get back to Kansas?? But before long I was drawn in. Nobody writes it like Stephen King, and nobody tells it quite like Frank Muller. :)
We've taken time out to tell the story of the Gunslinger's only one true love. Also, we get a wonderful look at Rowland's life in becoming a Gunslinger.
A bit lengthy if your not into the whole series. This is, however, a stand-alone read as all the other books are.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
I will remember this book in the series as, "The Book of Susan". In this addition to the series, Rolland tells his friends and loyal travelers about a time in his teen years that included his first love and several of his fellow, fledgling gunslingers. It was a little long for me through the middle and I was happy that the ending was so good and put us back on track. Moving closer to the tower.
