Great, but audio is off
Despite the narrator change (which is explained, sadly, at the end of the book), there are clear re-dubs within this title, especially in the second half. Either another narrator has stepped in, or has been recorded on different equipment, at a different time.
It's not much, but it is jarring. Also, the actual audio quality is not great, very low, very bassy. And for some reason, there are two parts where it seems a sound effect is used... also very jarring considering not a single one has been used within the last go knows how many hours.
Great story, bad recording, narrator is... ok. Mostly maintains the vocal distinctions but does fall flat on some others. Just started the next book and it does seem that some of these criticisms have been addressed though so fingers crossed.

The story moves forward
It was probably faster for me to listen to this than to read it myself. The audio book was long so the paper book would be very long and I would probably take forever to finish it.
Well if you have read the previous four book you kind of have to read this one too.
He has a great voice, so it is like being read a book by some old grandfather.
Yes, and it has one. These questions should probably not show up for book 5 out of 7 in a series.
Only two books left in the Dark Tower series now. Let's see where Mr. King takes us.
