Wizard and Glass- The Dark Tower 4 (Item 1622) by Stephen King
Synopsis: Roland and his companions venture on a new journey into the Gunslinger's past, during which Roland unfolds a tale revealing the secrets of his youth, including the tragic loss of his first love. 30,000 first printing.
Review: 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.
