Once again, Stephen King masterfully interweaves dark, evocative fantasy and icy realism, as his hero, Roland, the Last Gunslinger, pursues his quest for the Dark Tower. Roaming another world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, he is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into 1980s America. Here he links forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with beautiful, brilliant and brave Odetta Holmes, in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. With a storytelling skill that is sheer magic, and with breathtaking boldness of imagination, Stephen King has risen to the peak of his power to create a compelling epic that is at once enigmatic and familiar...and always compulsively readable. from Internet Book List

Didn't get excited to read this a 4th or 5th time, but once engaged, I could not stop flipping the pages.
This is the second book in my re-read of the Dark Tower series, via audiobook. For some reason this series alternates narrators. I can't figure that out? I guess it's not that important, but I much prefer George Guidall who narrated the first book, than Frank Muller, who narrated this one. This ...
