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.

After reading through the entire series I found the last book mediocre. The quickness with which the "bad guys" are taken care of was anticlimactic and almost felt rushed. The constant references to himself in the storyline became, in my opinion, obnoxious. The last book seemed to enlist more pseudo science and magical realm objects/characters/actions than I felt comfortable with, leading me eventually to feel the story was silly. After reading the series I would not recommend it unless the person was a Steven King fan. I was disappointed.

I won't ruin any elements of this story for those who are still reading, or have yet to discover this amazing series by Stephen King. All I will say is that after years of waiting, King has given an astounding finale to his masterwork.....Roland the gunslinger is ever so close to his tower, he and his friends experience joy, sadness, loss....and you will find yourself unable to put this book down, wanting to find out what happens next as the tower looms closer and closer....as King puts it, "Come a bit further constant reader, for the tale is almost done..." All will be revealed, and I love the ending!! Read this series! GREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars The last chapter? We will see :) Nov. 25 2010

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Marathon Series that leaves an impression... Dec 8 2007
By JD
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless. Beyond compare. Aug. 21 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good journey, Feb. 10 2006
By Rylin
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do me fine, say thankya! Jan. 21 2006
By Irish1
Format:Paperback
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.
