    Personally I prefer the audio versions Sai King read himself. I wish he would have done versions of all the DT books.

    I agree, listen to the audio books - they are amazing! I actually painted the entire outside of my house one summer while listening to the series!

    Totally agree with this. I love to listen to him read his work because then you know exactly how he meant it to sound when he wrote it. The sounds, the tone, the inflections -- you get it straight from the writer's mouth.

    I think Wind through the Keyhole is the only Dark Tower book he read himself. My comment meant any of SKs books that he reads himself are my favorite audios. Sorry for any confusion.

    I was talking about books 1 - 3 as well, he was the original narrator on the NAL verions. I think they were only released in cassette format. If you look in the back of various paperbacks you can find the order form. I have been tempted many time to fill out the form and send it in with my check or money order just to see what they send me.

    Always keep you eyes peeled in the second hand store and you may be surprised. I that is how I found my copies of DT1 and 2. I have longed for the The Waste Lands version for some time now.
    Hint Hint. It is almost christmas time.

    It's funny that you say this because SK himself said that Frank Muller "speaks in the voices that are in my head" and he actually listened to all 4 of the books Muller did before writing Wolves of the Calla to reabsorb himself into that world. Pretty high praise considering it's his magnum opus. But hey, to each their own, you like what you like! :)

    DT2. is the best thing to come out of the 80s...well except. for Mick Jaggar and David. Bowie gettin frisky while they were dancin' in the street. But DT2 is the best piece of fiction...ever!

    pg 68
    "-if that was the prisoner was able to correctly perform a ritual unknown to the gunslinger (and a world as strange as this must of necessity have many strange rituals); it was called Clearing the Customs"
    pg 75
    "...only now I think they know what is really wrong. They know he's going to try to profane the ritual"

    He does tons of audiobook readings if that is what you meant. I have him doing Needful Things, Lunch at the Gotham Cafe, 1408, In the Death room, It Grows on You, and a few more I can't remember right now. He actually does it really well and his delivery of the humorous parts especially cracks me up.
