Wolves of the Calla Audiobook Reviews
Best one yet!
While on their continuing quest for The Dark Tower, Roland and his ka-tet are waylaid by a village in crisis. The gunslingers – because they are all gunslingers in their own right, by now – have to decide whether they can help. And if they can help, they must, and are not allowed to accept any kind of payment, according to the Gunslinger Code.
This book mostly concerns that side quest, but there’s a helluva lot of depth, and along the way, they discover much that will aid them in their main quest.
In my review of the last book (Wizard and Glass) in this series, I lamented the long, drawn-out, and somewhat inappropriate backstory. Well, this one ALSO has a significant chunk of backstory to share, but it’s nothing like the one in Wizard and Glass. This one’s entirely appropriate and perfectly paced, and we’re constantly reminded that it is, in fact, a backstory.
In many ways, it forms somewhat of a sequel to ‘Salem’s Lot. I’ll say no more than that, but if you haven’t read that book, I strongly suggest you do so before reading Wolves of the Calla.
Back to the main story of this book: the village and its inhabitants are so richly detailed, none of them are “cardboard cutouts” by any means, and their own unique dialect is presented so beautifully, so consistently… I can only call it a literary masterpiece.
Around about 85% of the way through, I started noticing the odd typo here and here. These were clearly things that the editors missed (but in a book this long, who can blame them?). If you know me, you’d know that normally a single typo would be enough to destroy any book’s chances of getting a five-star review from me. But in this case, I was so engrossed by the time I spotted the first one, and there are so comparatively few of them, that it didn’t matter.
As the author himself advises in his introduction, I wouldn’t recommend reading this book if you haven’t read the first four (skip the “point fives”, though – just read the main story), but if you’ve been struggling through, I promise you you won’t regret sticking with it for this one!
