Publisher's Summary

Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA.

In the fourth powerful novel in Stephen King's best-selling fantasy quest, The Dark Tower beckons Roland, the Last Gunslinger, and the four companions he has gathered along the road.

And, having narrowly escaped one world, they set out on a terrifying journey across the scarred urban wasteland to brave a new world where hidden dangers lie at every junction: a malevolent computer-run monorail hurtling towards self-destruction, Roland's relentlessly cunning old enemy, and the temptation of the wizard's diabolical glass ball, a powerful force in Roland's first love affair. A tale of long-ago love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman named Susan Delgado.

And the Tower is closer....

    "My favourite of the series!"

    Loved the flash back of Roland's first love, at first I didn't want to leave the present and the main characters of the series, but then I didn't want to leave Hambry and come back. Frank Muller gets 5 stars for narration!

    I am a voracious reader both print and audio. The best stories hold you from the opening paragraph and keep you wanting more.

    "Roland and Susan"

    Another richly imagined world full of memorable characters that blur the boundaries between good and evil. This is the basis of all Stephen King stories. It makes you ponder the grey areas of ethical decisions and the hold that Ka seems to have on all of us. A must read for the whole of Roland's story.

    "Everyone loves a flashback episode"

    I really enjoyed this book, it tells an excellent story from the formative years in Roland's past without truly revealing as much as it brings up new questions. We really get the 'western' feel from this story, which blends beautifully with the medieval upbringing of Roland's childhood and immediate future.

    "Expectedly brilliant"

    King is a gifted writer who builds great castles with a few bricks, but not everybody wants to meet the shadows in all his many tales. Those who do revel in his gift and are never disappointed.

    Story
    "Disappointing Detour"

    One good thing I can say is that the cliffhanger from the previous book was resolved.

    I have been enjoying this series very much and of course I wanted some information on the background. Especially the back stories that made the characters who and what they are. My disappointment arises because this book in the series has taken me away from the main story almost completely. Yes it fills in some gaps but much more than I needed. I am more interested in what is supposed to be happening now. It's like a novel inside a novel that I wasn't expecting to read and didn't really want to.

    It's not a 100% bad story but compared to the excitement, suspense, character development and plot building of other books so far in the series it's fairly boring. I even felt that the characters were bored. Teenage love story ends in tragedy - well we already knew this from reading the first three books in the series so no surprises there.

    Frank Muller - brilliant as usual.

    "Frank Muller has an uncanny repertoire of voices"

    I truly believe this book would mean so much less without Frank reading it. Although I am an avid reader myself and I love Stephen's work...Frank gives the book life and depth. Bravo man, bravo.

    "A slightly protracted story"

    A long, drawn out &, in parts, slightly self indulgent tale, but worth the endurance.

    "Another great instalment"

    Muller gives a fantastic performance of the story. A special mention for his accent for Eddie Dean.

    I was hesitant about Wizard & Glass after hearing a lot of mixed reactions to it. I loved the first couple of chapters, especially when it referenced King's other work but after that I began to struggle but I didn't let that stop me -despite slowing down in the middle, the pay off in the last quarter is more than worth it.

    Recommend.

    an excellent reading, I found his voice for Susan a little irritating it I got over it. the breathless love bits are a little grating to listen to our loud, but I feel that is purely my discomfort above anything else

    "Tears a plenty."

    Another spellbinding trip to the Dark Tower. With tears along the way. Mesmerising scenes, friendships played out, the likes I'll never know make this another unforgettable journey and I can't wait to travel further.
