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 third novel in King's epic fantasy masterpiece, Roland, the Last Gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower, which haunts his dreams and nightmares. Pursued by the Ageless Stranger, he and his friends follow the perilous path to Lud, an urban wasteland. And crossing a desert of damnation in this macabre new world, revelations begin to unfold about who - and what - is driving him forward.
A blend of riveting action and powerful drama, The Waste Lands leaves listeners breathlessly awaiting the next chapter.
And the Tower is closer....
Where does The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very High, dark tower series started me off on Audio books & the late Frank Muller is my favourite narrator.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Roland, tough gunslinger character, very similar to David Gemmells Jerusalem man (aka Jon Shannow). Read superbly by Muller. Even Stephen King said he would listen to Mullers reading to get in the atmosphere to write the next dark tower novel.
Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to many of his performances and all are good, but in my opinion this is his best.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just love the world and characters he has created, so strange & disturbing. Have read and listened to the whole series, and without a doubt prefer listening because Muller takes you right into the world with his powerful performance.

The narrator does supreme justice to this intriguing, masterfully crafted and truly original series. It is unusual not to bore of a narrator after 18hrs of listening and this itself is testament to the creative vocal genius of Frank Muller. The uniqueness of each character is delivered with uncanny consistency and utterly plausible designer voice.
I would thoroughly recommend this entire series.
a harder one to get through than Drawing of the Three - simply not as much of a page turner for me past the first third - but still a great book.
I struggled to stop listening. the story is the most interesting I've listened to in a long while.
Such a lot is answered in this story and such a lot remains. Who would have thought of psychotic machinery but Stephen King. By far The Dark Tower is his finest epic work and I look forward to reading the next instalment.
Great book, the characters are brilliantly written and act realistically as opposed to a Hollywood hero. I'm hooked.
The only issue is a strange delay on the voice that you can hear in gaps.
This, the third book in the Dark Tower saga, really brings the ka-tet together and sets them on their path. It has some very dark concepts and unpleasant sections both because it deals with negative emotions, war, assault, abandonment etc and also because it shows weaknesses in each of the characters. It ends on a heck of a 'To be Continued' which feels quite frankly cheap, but I'm one of the fortunate ones that had the next book loaded and ready to go !!!
Frank Muller seemed to take perverse pleasure in extending each horrific second and left me breathless. Fabulous, thoughtful narration.
The characters are more 3 dimensional with each becoming more aware of their roll in the quest. This book in the series is a page turner with plots and scenarios evolving and a cliffhanger ending.
Another stellar performance from the author and narrator. Quickly becoming my favourite book series! Love it!

Loved it, audible have brought Roland's world to life once again. Stephen King is truly a master story teller and Frank Muller has such a dynamic and complementary reading style that between them they weave a magical spell that enthralls and captivates from beginning to end.

Well, I reviewed book 2 and was at that point a bit peeved that the Narrator had changed from Book one. I thought it was the narrator I didnt like, but I was wrong - it was infact my pet hate that narrator changed in a book series and nothing else. I find that I now love this narrator and cant imagine the characters having been any other way. A bit of google searching reveals that unfortunately Frank Muller was unable to complete this series after being in an accident and that is the reason for the alternating narrators. Both are excellent, I am sure it will jar again when Frank Muller is no longer reading but I am sure it will become as enjoyable again very shortly afterwards. I am very glad that book one has the "new" narrator as I will have heard his voice already when the change comes again. The Story is utterly superb as is the narration, I had no idea that I was listening to and giving a bad review of a narrator who was considered amongst the best, after many hours listening to this Narrator I can now see why he was chosen to read these books and it is a real shame that he has since passed away and will never complete the set.

I absolutely love The Dark Tower series, I can't wait to listen to the next one.
just read it!!! Best Stephen king book I've read... loved every minute... so many new characters and great story....
Frustrating to listen to and needlessly drawn out. I started to loathe this book towards the end. Only reason i finished it was for my partner...
this is a great series of books and so expertly narrated. Can't wait to start the next one.
Woke up early so that I could tune in, actually looked forward to the commute home. Loved absolutely every nerve shredding page
For those familiar with Kings 'Dark Tower' series I need not go in to detail as the group begins their quest. For those enjoying this for the first time. Blaine is a pain.
From the city of lud to Blaine the mono, not to mention the tick tock man it is as well paced thrills and spills quest as I have ever read.
The narrator is sublime casting and the story lends itself well to storytelling as there are stories within stories.
Good solid Stephen. Takes a bit of time to pick up its pace after the third book but as always has you gripped.
I wanna be a gunslinger and have a rough voice all I have to say
Loved it. Kept you reading from beginning to . Can not wait to read next one.
loved it. it's a different kind of story and narrated much better than the first. can't wait to listen to the rest.
just saw the movie after reading set sum 11yr,s ago. suk,d. Books as was is
Another great chapter, fantastically read, taking you deeper into the world of the Dark Tower.
The voices the reader portrays in conversations are amazing - the accents and tone of each speaker really makes the story exciting and alive
Any additional comments?
I like the sci-fi them and overall plot... but for what ever reason, it just wasn't a memorable book and I'm not rushing on to the next.
read it read it read it oh wait listen to it listen to it. 😂
Roland and his fellow travelers continue to delight in King's third part of this tale. Well worth the read (or listen).
5 star material. a absolute must read, highly recommend sparing a few hours for this book
Man, the series started out slow, and I begrudgingly went along, but the more it goes on, the more enthralling it becomes.
I'm hooked. It's done. I give in. <zombie voice> "muuuuuust liiiiiisteeeeeeen"
