Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba!
In this third volume, several months have passed, and Roland's two new tet-mates have become trained gunslingers. Eddie Dean has given up heroin, and Odetta's two selves have joined, becoming the stronger and more balanced personality of Susannah Dean. But while battling The Pusher in 1977 New York, Roland altered ka by saving the life of Jake Chambers, a boy who - in Roland's world - has already died. Now Roland and Jake exist in different worlds, but they are joined by the same madness: the paradox of double memories.
Roland, Susannah, and Eddie must draw Jake into Mid-World and then follow the Path of the Beam all the way to the Dark Tower. Along the way our tet stumbles into the ruined city of Lud, and are caught between the warring gangs of the Pubes and the Grays. The only way out of Lud is to wake Blaine the Mono, an insane train that has a passion for riddling, and for suicidal journeys.

Most Helpful

Frank Muller shines.

Where does The Waste Lands rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say that this ranks in the top 10 easily. I have almost 100 titles in my audio library right now so I don't say that lightly.

What did you like best about this story?

Frank Muller. The story is astounding but his narration outshines even the intricate nuances of Stephen King's Midworld.

What about Frank Muller’s performance did you like?

His voices are so convincing and effortless. Even with as many characters as there are in this series, you could listen to Frank's performance with zero dialogue attribution and it would be entirely understandable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I honestly can't say. It would spoil things which I do not intend to do for you. Pay close attention in the last "part" of the book - you'll be glad you did when you read the next one.

Any additional comments?

This book is a gem. The narration cements its place in my top 10 list.

He's a great reader...

Though I'm not sure he captured Susannah very well, not that I could have done any better.
