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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Struggled but will perserve"

    Maybe this series isn't for me. I took it on with trepidation. I can't fault the book or the writing, I just found it really long and this took me 3 months to finish. I just couldn't get into it at times and had to rewind repeatedly.

    HOWEVER I will continue with the series because I have invested so much time in it and I want to see what happens to the kartet. I just need a little break, so I'm going to read a couple of quick light hearted 'chick lits' before the next tomb.

    Story
    "So Roland DOES have a heart"
    What did you like most about The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass?

    Roland's blossoming relationship with Susan Delgado. Also, the relationship with Roland's original Ka-Tet of Owain and Cuthbert. You understand a lot of Roland's motivations and why he is the way he is from the events in this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Roland showing how smart and astute he is despite his distraction with Susan Delgado. Also that he can demonstrate the difference between a gunslinger and those who failed the test and are outcast.


    Which character โ€“ as performed by Frank Muller โ€“ was your favourite?

    I enjoyed Cuthbert Allgood's character and Frank's performance of it. It is slightly distracting hearing the name pronounced differently to how I expect to hear it though. Not that it is Frank's fault because King confirmed that it should be pronounced "Key-ooth-bert" instead of "Cuth-bert" as I'd expect. On a related note, King pronounces Deschain as "Des-chain" whereas Frank (and I) would pronounce it more French as in "Desh-ain". I only mention it as King reads "The Wind Through the Keyhole" himself.


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

    Naturally, the death of Susan Delgado (No spoiler there because it's confirmed in earlier books) and the fear for Sheemie's life.


    Any additional comments?

    A brilliant story that gives us the background of Roland's life before his quest for the Dark Tower. I think that "The Drawing of the Three" is a better story but many would disagree. Definitely worth reading as a King fan even if you dislike the Dark Tower series.

    "Amazing!"

    So much detail, depth and thought has been infused into the characters and story, it is astounding. It is close to the longest book I have ever listened to but worth every minute. I recommend it with no half measures.

    Story
    "Great book, fantastic narration"
    What did you like most about The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass?

    I had been reading the Dark Tower series so new I wanted to go on to the next book. This is not a series where you can start in the middle. So if you looking at book 4 you should know what your in for. If you have not read the first three do not start here, it will really make no sense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dark tower is not your standard King style books, book one was ok but by mid-way through book two I was hooked. The reader in this case really added to the story and as I have been reading book five I have found myself reading with the various voices he gave to the various characters. I will lessen instead of reading the final book in the series such was the added value of the great narration.

    I'm slowly coming to the realisation that this book series will be coming to an end for me soon and it's really sad. These books are awesome and I'm loving every minute of them! This one gave a good insight into a young Roland. Loved it. 5 stars!
