Frank Muller, the recognized virtuoso of audiobook narration (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption), takes on Stephen King's Goliath tale of sorcerers, time travelers, and sci-fi love. Totaling more than 27 hours and spanning 18 cassettes, Wizard and Glass requires the listener to love Muller's Hannibal Lecter-like voice--either that or suffer in audio hell for the equivalent of three full working days. While some might find his breathy staccatos irritating at best, others will find his voice the perfect accompaniment to King's creepy characters and nightmarish plots. (Running time: 27 hours, 18 cassettes)
From Library Journal
Frank Muller's reading of King's fourth book in a projected seven-part series (e.g., The Waste Lands: The Dark Tower, Bk. 3, Audio Reviews LJ 2/15/92) is effective in creating a suspenseful and fearful atmosphere. We find Roland, the knight errant/gunslinger, continuing his quest to attain the Dark Tower, the source of destructive forces in his Mid-World. A major portion of this work is a recounting by Roland of his ill-fated love affair with Susan Delgado. The writing is expectedly imaginative, the story line engrossing, and the characters vivid. The listener is carried along through alternating Western, urban, and futuristic settings. The work stands on its own, incorporating a summary of Books 1-3, but will be better appreciated if listened to as part of the whole. Recommended for sf/fantasy collections and Stephen King fans.?Catherine Swenson, Norwich Univ. Lib., Northfield, Vt.

I will gladly continue my journey to the Tower for the third time. I believe the story does actually get better with age and / or repetition.
That said, so far this was certainly my favorite book. It starts with a bang, concluding the insanity that is Blaine the Mono, only to slow down to a series of frustrating facts (most importantly the advent of the thinnies) that culminated in Roland telling the story of his early years, what happend after he became a gunslinger, of how he met his first love at the age of 14 and how, with his trusted and beloved friends Cuthbert and Alain, was swept away by "ka" into a sea of messianic proportions no e of them could've ever foreseen. The spectacular conclusion is a groundbreaker that shall not be mentioned, least there be spoilers, suffice to say ot's the grand comeback to Roland's new ka-tet, formed by Eddie, Susannah, Jake, and Oy. Most of the story, however, does take place in his past, when innocence was utterly wiped away in rains of blood.
