This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the fantasy novel, Song of Susannah by Stephen King. This book was published in June 2004 by Grant and has a page count of 432 pages. This is the sixth installment in the Dark Tower Series. The audiobook is read by George Guidall and is 14 hours & 9 minutes in length. The following overview is provided from the B&N page: Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, the Dark Tower series is unlike anything you have ever read. Here is the penultimate installment.
This is my favorite book of the Dark Tower series. I love that King wrote himself into the story as a plot device. The way he is able to weave pop culture and everyday things into his writing without them feeling forced or out of place is a talent I hardly come across in writing. A lot of the time when there is a brand name or something of the like mention it feels like product placement meant to sell you something. But with King, it is just a matter-of-fact thing in the writing while also being a real thing outside of the world within the novel. This is a fantastic series that I highly recommend.
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Mariah Chavez Carter. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the young adult romance novel, If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
