Product Description

Review

'King's magnificent uberstory is finally complete... King's achievement is startling; his characters fresh... his plot sharply drawn... It is magic.' -- Daily Express on THE DARK TOWER 'Join the quest before it's too late' -- Independent on Sunday on THE SONG OF SUSANNAH

About the Author

'At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time [specifically The Good, the Bad and the Ugly] and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of seven books and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his short story collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.' From the author's website.

This is a general review about "The Dark Tower" series from Stephen King. I have memorable highlights from each and every book and they are all very much separate and unique and very much part of each other...
"The Gunslinger" contains one of the most intense and vivid action sequences that is still playing in my mind...
"The Drawing of the 3" was surely some wacked out view point and probably the most captivating in the series...
"The WasteLands" contain some signature Stephen King horror which is simply mesmerizing...
"Wizards and Glass" was probably my toughest read (yawn) but one I simply cannot forget his friends...
The last three books in the series are equally complete. Each dealing with the challenges of our "ka-tet". But the highlight here(for me) would be the new character introduced in the last and seventh book. As for the end of the series, well I must admit that I was expecting something...more...There were so many sacrifices and the journey was so challenging...But yet, as "Twirling Finger" pointed out, or the way he said it, well I can live with it. Highly recommended.

The perfect final book in a perfect series. An absolutely addictive combination of love, adventure, fantasy, magic, gunfire and everything else you might dream about. I await anxiously the day another story will make me feel the way King's Dark Tower series has. However, I'm afraid that day shall never come. This book sincerely brought me to both tears of joy and sadness. It made me forget all else in my life for hours upon hours every day and night that I spent in the world of the Dark Tower. I felt like I was there, a spirit from another world watching everything unfold, knowing everyone from Roland and Eddie to Jake and his little billy-bumbler Oy from the inside out like a true friend. And this seventh installment brings it all to an end - and what an end! Not only did I experience the story of Roland Deschain so intimately and realistically, I was even given a choice of my own to make when all the dust settled.

Thank you Stephen King. May your magic tales touch the lives of countless others like they have mine.

When I finally got around to reading this series, I made a liar out of myself! I enjoyed every other book that King has written and have read most of them. BUT I didn't like the sound of DARK TOWER and the cowboy in all that desert, so I told everyone I liked ALL his books except the DARK TOWER series. Well, I finally read one and was hooked right from the start, and that's how I made a liar of myself. I then went on to read them all. Now, like many other King fans, I hate to see the series end.
I have always adored Stephen King's writing, and the man himself! He has the most fantastic, dark imagination and sense of timing than any author ever. His books are masterpieces, yet King has remained his sweet, humble self. (Can you believe he allowed me, a little known author, to use a quote he wrote, put my own spin on it and make it my own!) If that isn't generosity, I don't know what is!
As you can see, I recommend this book without qualification ... and I've learned a valuable lesson--never say never! I made a liar out of myself this time, but I'm delighted for the opportunity to have had such a fabulous reading experience.
Thanks, Stephen King, for countless hours of entertainment ... not only with your books, but your movies, as well!
KING'S THE KING, for sure!

This has been one of the most amazing reading experiences of my life! (I'd say the most amazing, but I have a vivid memory of discovering Tolkien when I was a kid.) The sheer sweep and scope of the story is awesome, and the intricacies of the plot keep the reader's attention focused - if you plan to read this, bring your attention span along!
One of the things I loved most about the books (apart from Stephen King's own involvement in the tale) was the many links to his other works - eg., finally discovering what became of a character from a much earlier book, and finding answers about 'low men in yellow coats'.
Go ahead - join the 'ka-tet'. Go on the gunslinger's journey, and find out if all manner of things will be well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the series. It captivated me and made me think. Hard to put down and always looked forward to the next one. Sad to see it end. Or did it? You never know!
Another series I've begun reading recently that lovers of this one may enjoy is The Unsuspecting Mage, Book One of the Morcyth Saga by Brian S. Pratt. It's a good read too. I love it so much, I'm telling everyone. He's new on the scene but I think is destined to leave his mark on the genre of fantasy.

I was eagerly yearning for the ending, after started reading this in the 80's. At first I detested the ending, then after some thought, decided it was in fact perfect. It's not the end of the tale but the journey. This series will maintain a perminant place on my shelf for the rest of my life, that's for sure!

Stephen King ends the series right with this book. Say what you will about this book, but it closes the series and it doesn't feel cheap. Some people may moan and groan about the ending but if you stop and think about the other books, it makes sense, it feels right. Easily a tie for one of the best books from 'The Dark Tower' series. Holds much re-read value.
