Frank Mueller is a gifted narrator. I’ve listen to the Dark Tower books that he’s narrated 6 time and this is the seventh. I’m ecstatic that the publishers never changed the narration to a new artist. They probably decided on this due to his fatal motor cycle accident decades ago, but it’s also because his talent fits Stephen Kings characters like a glove. It always has, and when two artists like Mueller and King come together, the experience is perfect.

If this is your first time traveling with Roland and his Ka-tet- congratulations. You’re in for a journey that can never be replicated. There has never, and there may well never be again, and series of books like the The Dark Tower series.

Strap in. You will leave scathed.

And me we all meet at the clearing at the end of the path.

Excellent

I have not enjoyed a narrator this much since Frank Muller narrated Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. Roy Dotrice is a man of 1000 voices. Immensely enjoyable. The story is read with the skill of an accomplished character actor.

A scary story...

This must have been a terrifying experience to live through. The narration is consistent, but very matter of fact and doesn’t convey very much emotion about this incredible story. Instead of being scared, I found myself simply listening to learn more. The narration makes the story interesting, but not scary.

That's a wrap!

William Patton's performance on this recording is likened to a one-man, off broadway show. Lots of genuine talent and emotion give Stephen King's story a depth that my feeble imagination would never have ventured to on it's own.

As for the story: Dan Torrence's epic life is concluded with an air-tight tale that will make you laugh, shriek, and maybe even cry a little. This story was as perfect as a horror/fantasy story can get. You won't be sorry, but you might find yourself wondering about all those old folks that travel all those thousands of American miles year after year. You've been warned.
