Fantasy • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

King has changed a few details in this rewrite of the first Dark Tower series novel, though the essence of Roland's journey remains unchanged. We encounter Roland of Gilead in his quest for the Dark Tower and meet Jake, his young friend, who fears betrayal. A visit with Death and the slaughter of a village complete the plot. George Guidall takes over narrating duties from Frank Muller, until 2001 the reigning voice of Stephen King audiobooks. Guidall adopts Muller's vocalizations of Roland and Jake, but his narrative choices reveal a different side of the story. Where Muller offers raw, Guidall delivers well done--the listener wants more of both. R.P.L.
