Publisher's Summary

In this fourth volume, Roland, Eddie, Susannah, and Jake survive Blaine the Mono's final crash, only to find themselves stranded in an alternate version of Topeka, Kansas, one that has been ravaged by the superflu virus. While following the deserted I-70 toward a distant glass palace, Roland recounts a story about a seaside town called Hambry, where he fell in love with a girl named Susan Delgado, and where he and his old tet-mates Alain and Cuthbert battled the forces of John Farson, the harrier who - with a little help from a seeing sphere called Maerlyn's Grapefruit - ignited Mid-World's final war.

    "Frank Muller is the best Audible narrator!!!!"

    I'm now halfway through Kings dark Tower series, which I think is the best work he's done. I have to add add that my enjoyment of this remarkable story -- with its wide array of characters, plot lines, environments, moods and literary & cultural references -- has been incredibly enriched by the dramatic range and richness Frank Muller's voice and his phenomenal ability to become John Wayne, an African-American prostitute, a gravel-voiced gunslinger, a frightened young boy, a vengeful maiden aunt, a cynical New York junkie or a young woman in love. His impressions of very different well-known people are dead-on, and he can even sing well when called for. He is not only believable in all the roles he plays, but his emotional intelligence adds to the heights and depths of the roller-coaster ride that King takes us on. I will seriously consider buying any book that he narrates; he's that good!!

    "Flashback of brilliance"

    I am not a huge fan of flashbacks, especially long ones, but man.. This book was absolutely incredible! It might be my favorite of the series so far, which is saying a lot. I look forward to the next 4 books in the series which I am going to start reading in about 5 minutes!

    "Surprise Prequel is Unsurprising Solid-ish"

    Frank Muller is amazing. I really don't know what else to say. His preformence kept me engaged despite the often slow pacing of the book. The story fits nicely into the seires and covers a lot of ground but it's needlessly detailed at times; creating frustration (i.e. "Get on with it!") instead of anticipation.

    I love the world Steven King has created in the dark tower series so I'll stand true and remember the face of my father... But I do hope the next book doesn't feel like a trudg fest.

    I would and will recommend this book and series regardless of my griping.

    "cannot....will not stop"

    This series of novels from King has changed my desire to read. I wish I started years ago, almost regret not doing so.

    "Such a great book"

    I wouldn't go as far as to call myself a fanatic of Stephen Kings books. Though I've read a lot of his work and hardly let myself deviate from this book or any other of his books in the series once I purchased one. That said, this statement speaks to my review that this book is absolutely spectacular. Stephen Kings use of his imagination has been awing in this series so far. I yet again am more than excited to read or listen to the next book of his series. What surprised me about the book was how much emotion it made me feel when he wrote about the characters. The story was touching, thrilling and not without an aspect of wonder in it. I highly recommend that you read this book.

    "Love love this series so far"

    Mr Muller was awesome reading this book. Mr. King, what can I say? I have no words! I sometimes wonder the way he writes if he has not been to these worlds at night when he sleeps or close his eyes. He is just beyond awesome. Truly gifted.
