I tried my best to get into Dune being a big sci-fi fan and hearing that Dune is one of the greatest sci-fi works of all time from so many people, but I just couldn't. It was a pretentious and boring story with bad voice performances. It is entirely possible that I may enjoy the book more as the performances were that inconsistent, but I doubt it. Unfortunately Dune just isn't for me.

Enjoyable performance, but meandering writing.

I am a fan of Stephen King so I was rather disappointed when I found that I just didn't enjoy IT. IT's barely scary and the writing is so meandering you can feel King simply trying to increase the word count. I was grateful for Steven Weber's enthusiastic performance, but I can't recommend this one due to the writing issues.

Very entertaining follow up to King's first book in the Dark Tower series and Frank Muller's performance in reading this story was perfect (one of the best I've ever listened to). If you enjoyed the first book in this series I definitely recommend giving this one a go!

The Gunslinger is brilliant.

The Gunslinger is a little slow to start but it's necessary as it builds its world. Once the story got going I felt engaged the entire time and could not stop listening. if you're a fan of King's work or fantasy in general, definitely make sure you check out The Gunslinger. Looking forward to listening to book 2 in King's 'The Dark Tower' series.
