Description

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!

Best in the series so far!

The best in the series so far!

The Dark Tower books just keep getting better and better! If you enjoyed The Waste Lands, you will love this!

Most of Wizard and Glass is spent filling out some of Roland’s back story and it is a humdinger! Frank Muller owns Mid World. He brings so much character and feeling to all the characters. He style and delivery suits this story so well to my ears.

Can’t wait to get stuck in the next in the series!

Tough going

A good continuation of the story, if only because it is a continuation albeit split in two, but the extended flash back that took up the largest portion of the book was odd, unevenly paced, far too long and not really enjoyable as a story, especially compared to the last two books. There is of course some wonderful world building all over it and the rest of the book outside of the flash back make it an essential read for those insisting of getting into these books. Here's hoping the next one is better.

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.

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.

Exciting but somehow optional

Couldn't finish the book for 5 years, it seemed just too boring, but when the characters came alive with Muller's different voices I couldn't stop listening. It's slow to start and largely disconnected with the previous books as it is "just" Roland's backstory. But it picks up the pace near the end and although the book then makes clear where it's heading you want to hear it all and find out for yourself.
Just 4 stars for the story, because it seemed King only wrote Wizard and Glass, because he didn't know how to continue the Ka-Tet's journey. A thrilling tale nonetheless, but, honestly, I think you can skip it and not miss much of Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy's story.

Phänomenal!

Bereits so ist der vierte Band der Dunklen Turm Saga der beste Teil der Reihe. Rolands Rückblende ist das brillianteste was ich je gelesen habe. Frank Muller schafft es das Erlebnis noch um eine Nuance zu erweitern. Er erweckt die Figuren zu leben, was zu einer einzigartigen Atmosphäre führt.
