About the Author

At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time [specifically The Good, the Bad and the Ugly] and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of seven books and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his short story collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.' From the author's website.


Classic King, fine characters, compellingly written in a gripping, well-honed plot - Daily Express on THE DARK TOWERSuperbly energetic, it's King at his best. - Mail on Sunday on WIZARD AND GLASS

With his dry, New England accent, Stephen King would never be mistaken for a professional narrator. But that hardly matters when he's reading his own work, especially a novel as flat-out entertaining as his new addition to the Dark Tower series. Covering events that take place between the fourth and fifth books, this installment follows gunslinger Roland Deschain of Gilead and his pals as they sit out a storm on their journey to the Dark Tower. While they wait, Roland tells them a story about when his father sent him to hunt down a shape-shifter and a legendary tale about a boy named Tim Stoutheart and his adventures with a wizard and magic tiger. King's narration is so effective, especially when evoking some of the colorful characters-like gruff cowboys or otherworldly critters-that listeners will assume he's picked up some technique from the pros who've narrated his many books over the years. The audiobook includes a bonus: King reading the first chapter of Doctor Sleep, his forthcoming sequel to The Shining. A Scribner hardcover. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

King returns to the "Dark Tower" fantasy saga with this enchanting and entrancing stand-alone gem that doesn't require knowledge of the previous entries. For series devotees, this book casts a bit of insight into Roland Deschain's past. For novices, the story is a fascinating and timeless tale about a boy's courage to avenge his father's murder and his mother's abuse, both at the hands of his stepfather. VERDICT This universal story is filled with magic, courageous acts, love, and terror. King does a credible job of narrating his own words. Recommended to King's fans, especially "Dark Tower" lovers. [The Scribner hc was described as "a fairy tale so dark as to put the Brothers Grimm to shame.... with enough action, suspense, and even poignancy to fill a much larger work of fiction," LJ Xpress Reviews, 4/13/12.-Ed.]-Gloria Maxwell, Metropolitan Community Coll.-Penn Valley Lib., Kansas City, MO (c) Copyright 2012.
