Publisher's Summary

The pivotal sixth instalment in King's best-selling epic fantasy saga provides the key to the quest that defines Roland's life. In the next part of their journey to the tower, Roland and his band of followers face adversity from every side: Susannah Dean has been taken over by a demon-mother and uses the power of Black Thirteen to get from the Mid-World New York City. But who is the father of her child? And what role will the Crimson King play? Roland sends Jake to break Susannah's date with destiny, while he himself uses 'the persistence of magic' to get to Maine in the Summer of 1977. It is a terrible world: for one thing it is real and bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem’s Lot.

Song of Susannah is driven by revelation and by suspense. It continues The Dark Tower series seamlessly from Wolves of Calla and the dramatic climax will leave listeners desperate to hear the quest's conclusion.

    "A finely crafted entry in the Dark Tower"

    The penultimate entry in the Dark Tower saga is also one of the shorter books, but lacks nothing for its comparative brevity. With a fine performance by George Guidall, this rates up there as one of my favourite audiobook experiences ever...

    "Back to the 'real' world"

    The ka-tet spend a lot more time in the 'real' world or the world of Stephen King in this book, and we have much greater symbolism as well with all the time Susan spends in her 'dogan. The story is really moving along here and you can feel the downward slope of the roller coaster in the story, everything is picking up speed and you can tell the Tower itself is just around the corner.

    "This from a fan of Mr King - WHY?"

    Pregnancy and birth in horror/fantasy/science fiction have been done before and done infinitely better than portrayed in this book. I did have some sort of investment in the character so stayed with it.

    It is beyond weird that Stephen King insinuates himself as a major character. It is self indulgent, egotistical and such a nutso, weak literary contrivance that I am amazed Stephen King used it.

    King tells Eddie, when talking about writing the book, that he guessed he stopped writing the book because it was "too big for my little brain" and later he explains how he lost the outline off the back of his bike. Well just those two things alone, say it all don't they! They say why the series is so disjointed and a weak, self promotion for his other books. Pathetic!

    By the way - one line from Mr King in this book about Mr King's writing has convinced me I already know how the series will end.

    Good narration from George Guidall.

    "Pregnancy Blues"

    Susannah is pregnant, and odds are the baby is going to be some sort of awful demon. As the ka-tet struggle to re-unite, Father Callahan helps them on in their quest to reach the Dark Tower.
