Summary

This classic story is filled with all kinds of teachings, from Ram Dass playing on the Wurlitzer of Wisdoms, to the Tibetan wheel-of-life, to Sufi stories, all woven into a humorous adventure taking place in an old mansion called Inverness. The mansion has three towers, but Jack Flanders has seen a fourth. When he finally enters the tower, he discovers there are various levels, and each level contains another world.

Escapism to the existential degree

Lovely stroll through mythical world's and random interjections of philosophy while solving a plethora of mysterious circumstances.

Eccentric, fascinating show, philosophical twist

Incredible show, love the characters and their eccentricities. Love the voice of the narrator and the rest of the cast. First heard when I was a child. Great for all ages. Similar yet different appreciation for it now. Truly takes me away with them in Inverness and it's outer limits. Philosophical twists and turns as well, levels of spirituality that I truly appreciate.

Trippy philosophy

I really enjoyed this serial. I had heard it on xm radio on their audiobook channel (that sadly enough doesn't exist anymore) years ago. The other Jack Flanders stories are also worth a listen.

Original Jack Flanders adventure, maybe the best.

This story has it all, including some goofiness at the end. But then, it's the goofiness and the fun that make it worth hearing. There's mystical adventures, lush, descriptive language, New Age philosophy, character voice acting, monsters, silly puns, witty dialog combined with witless nonsense, music, special effects... you name it. Let's not forget the Demented Demon Dwarves. It's a fun "ride" that is worth repeating.

Fourth Tower

The Fourth Tower does not disappoint. Intriguing characters develop as the story unfolds. The sound effects are excellent. First heard this back in college during early 70's and fell in love with the Fourth Tower. Now it's just as brilliant.

Classic

I grew up with this series, as did my mom, so it may not be for everyone and I realize that. There’s some stuff, as I listen to it now, that isn’t great. Sometimes racist, etc. But I find this to be a great sleep aid as I used to fall asleep to it at my grandmas house. A lot of fun, and can help spark imagination too!

quit a third of the way into this

I was hoping this would get better, but it's absolutely awful. Contrived and lackluster performance by the actors. Boring and ill-conceived storytelling. Too bad, because I usually enjoy Meatball Fulton's books. I wish I had my credit back.
