Publisher's Summary

Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA.

The pivotal sixth instalment in King's best-selling epic fantasy saga provides the key to the quest that defines Roland's life.

In the next part of their journey to the tower, Roland and his band of followers face adversity from every side: Susannah Dean has been taken over by a demon-mother and uses the power of Black Thirteen to get from the Mid-World New York City. But who is the father of her child? And what role will the Crimson King play?

Roland sends Jake to break Susannah's date with destiny, while he himself uses 'the persistence of magic' to get to Maine in the Summer of 1977. It is a terrible world: for one thing it is real and bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot.

Song of Susannah is driven by revelation and by suspense. It continues The Dark Tower series seamlessly from Wolves of the Calla and the dramatic climax will leave listeners desperate to read the quest's conclusion.

    "Better than first reading if possible"

    I had missed so much from this book on my first reading probably in my eagerness to reach the last instalment The Dark Tower. It is a great continuation and is well read and acted by the narrator giving life and character to the stories cast. Onward to the final instalment. Be true

    "Another cleverly created slice of the dark tower."

    Really enjoyed this portion of this epic! real thought provoking stuff. The creation meeting it's creator? But who is the creator, and created?
    Loved it.

    "Songs of Susannah"

    A brilliant story and well told, though in my opinion the least of the dark tower series. That by no means makes it a bad buy, but a necessary one to complete the series. The Dark Tower, here I come!

    "Master of his craft gets a little self indulgent"

    As my title states, I did thoroughly enjoy this chapter, but Mr King does stray off his normally perfect road of story telling onto a couple of shady avenues of self indulgance. All the same it is still an enthralling listen and an essential part of the epic Dark Tower.

    "Great Read(listen)"

    I'd read a few really bad reviews about this book, with many claiming it was the weakest in the DT series. It might be, but it's still strong and I enjoyed it a lot.

    "Disappointing instalment in the series"
    Would you try another book written by Stephen King or narrated by George Guidall?

    Yes - i have listened to The Dark Tower series and there is no way i won't listen to the final book despite not liking this book


    Has The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah put you off other books in this genre?

    I doubt i listen to another Stephen King book after i finish The Dark Tower series


    What three words best describe George Guidall’s voice?

    clear, emotive, fitting.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was short! i really don't think this particular book added anything to the series and could be skipped easily without the reader missing much.


    Any additional comments?

    The decision to introduce what could be described as a familiar name to the cast list was in my opinion a mistake and really spoilt the story for me.

    Story
    "Getting ready for the climax"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, simply because it's from a series of books and that if they like the series, they must read it because a lot of what happens has an effect on the next (final) book. I wouldn't read it as a standalone book because it relies too much on other books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The back story of Father Callaghan from "Salem's Lot" after the original novel ends. Certainly interesting to a reader of the book.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    It's definitely as good as the others he has done for the series. It doesn't stand out otherwise.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. There is too much to read and digest to really take on board in one sitting. Plus you have to take into account the rest of the series in places.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book but it seems more of an information dump rather than a good story to me. I've read the series a few times and I can't miss it out when reading the series but it's definitely the worst of all the novels in the series. That doesn't mean it's a bad book, just that it's not as strong as the others. Stephen King also makes an appearance in this book which I have mixed feelings about.

    "A finely crafted entry in the Dark Tower"

    The penultimate entry in the Dark Tower saga is also one of the shorter books, but lacks nothing for its comparative brevity. With a fine performance by George Guidall, this rates up there as one of my favourite audiobook experiences ever...

    "Back to the 'real' world"

    The ka-tet spend a lot more time in the 'real' world or the world of Stephen King in this book, and we have much greater symbolism as well with all the time Susan spends in her 'dogan. The story is really moving along here and you can feel the downward slope of the roller coaster in the story, everything is picking up speed and you can tell the Tower itself is just around the corner.

    Story
    "This from a fan of Mr King - WHY?"

    Pregnancy and birth in horror/fantasy/science fiction have been done before and done infinitely better than portrayed in this book. I did have some sort of investment in the character so stayed with it.

    It is beyond weird that Stephen King insinuates himself as a major character. It is self indulgent, egotistical and such a nutso, weak literary contrivance that I am amazed Stephen King used it.

    King tells Eddie, when talking about writing the book, that he guessed he stopped writing the book because it was "too big for my little brain" and later he explains how he lost the outline off the back of his bike. Well just those two things alone, say it all don't they! They say why the series is so disjointed and a weak, self promotion for his other books. Pathetic!

    By the way - one line from Mr King in this book about Mr King's writing has convinced me I already know how the series will end.

    Good narration from George Guidall.
