Publisher's Summary

Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA.
The pivotal sixth instalment in King's best-selling epic fantasy saga provides the key to the quest that defines Roland's life.
In the next part of their journey to the tower, Roland and his band of followers face adversity from every side: Susannah Dean has been taken over by a demon-mother and uses the power of Black Thirteen to get from the Mid-World New York City. But who is the father of her child? And what role will the Crimson King play?
Roland sends Jake to break Susannah's date with destiny, while he himself uses 'the persistence of magic' to get to Maine in the Summer of 1977. It is a terrible world: for one thing it is real and bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot.
Song of Susannah is driven by revelation and by suspense. It continues The Dark Tower series seamlessly from Wolves of the Calla and the dramatic climax will leave listeners desperate to read the quest's conclusion.

A finely crafted entry in the Dark Tower

The penultimate entry in the Dark Tower saga is also one of the shorter books, but lacks nothing for its comparative brevity. With a fine performance by George Guidall, this rates up there as one of my favourite audiobook experiences ever...

Back to the 'real' world

The ka-tet spend a lot more time in the 'real' world or the world of Stephen King in this book, and we have much greater symbolism as well with all the time Susan spends in her 'dogan. The story is really moving along here and you can feel the downward slope of the roller coaster in the story, everything is picking up speed and you can tell the Tower itself is just around the corner.

Better than first reading if possible

I had missed so much from this book on my first reading probably in my eagerness to reach the last instalment The Dark Tower. It is a great continuation and is well read and acted by the narrator giving life and character to the stories cast. Onward to the final instalment. Be true

Another cleverly created slice of the dark tower.

Really enjoyed this portion of this epic! real thought provoking stuff. The creation meeting it's creator? But who is the creator, and created?
Loved it.

worst book in series

starts with a bang and then peters off very quickly. nothing really happens in the last 2/3. the lame duck off the otherwise brilliant DT series.

Not much going on

Very little happens from a story point of view in this one.

The recording is pretty short and that includes the last 50 minutes which are diary extracts from the author.
