Great, but audio is off

Any additional comments?

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

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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.

Would you recommend The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla to your friends? Why or why not?

Well if you have read the previous four book you kind of have to read this one too.

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has a great voice, so it is like being read a book by some old grandfather.

Do you think The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, and it has one. These questions should probably not show up for book 5 out of 7 in a series.

Any additional comments?

Only two books left in the Dark Tower series now. Let's see where Mr. King takes us.

Amazing book, great series, narrator pretty good

Would you listen to The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla again? Why?

The mystery, the strength of story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Roland, who else?

Which scene did you most enjoy?

So many difficult to choose...

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

Any of the scenes to do with sacrifice

Any additional comments?

Just wanted to mention/reply to the above comment regarding the narrator to this book not being as good as the previous series narrator, Frank Muller. Did you listen to the afterword, whoever wrote this review? I think I'm inclined to believe Frank was better-without disrespect to this narrator, cry your pardon, who I don't think as bad - but Frank Muller was all ready and set up to narrate this one and the rest of the dark tower...then he had a horrible motorcycle accident, leaving him with lots of neurological damage and unable to work. So I feel bad being too hard on the guy, or on this other narrator who does do a reasonable job. Here's wishing Frank Muller all the best.

Excellent

Narration was brilliant, drawing the listener in further in when needed. Story line gripping as in the rest of this series so far. Since using audible I watch a lot less television as I enjoy using my imagination. Being dyslexic I get to enjoy books now.

Loving this!

Glad George Guidall narrating is back. Wasn’t fond of the last narrator but certainly wish him well.
