The last book I think was definately to rushed. For all that went on, the book easily could have been 2 more books at least.

Yeah, spoilers ahead. Lots of em. Dont read thsi if you havent read book :)

And as much as losing all the major players in the story hurt, it felt right. My only gripe is that it all seemed horribly rushed. EVERYONE seemed to drop out of the picture in the last book. Why they all left the tet so quickly was explained in the book as something like ugly and quick. But that is a cop out. The characters deserved better than quick, ignoble deaths that Roland just seemed to pass buy.

I wish we had more back story. WTF happened at Jericho Hill? King touched on it so much but never described it. But, I can understand this. Making us use our imaginations to imagine this is good, but hell, I can wish...

I honestly would have rather had Roland die some glorious death at the top of the tower than the ending that happened. Hes a gunslinger for godsakes. But the ending also made sense. Ka being a wheel and such.

Mordred seemed somewhat worthless. I felt sorry for him but his battle was pointless and no tension. It almost would have been better if he died lonely, it seems, if he died of his sickness on the trail.

For all the build up, the Crimson seemed ridiculous. I liked him better when he was un personified. Personified, throwing grenades, he added nothing to the story, just a temporary roadblock for Roland.

Sheemie got screwed over in his death, Roland didnt care. He cared a bit more about Jakes and Eddies but not much it seems. I did like Ted in the book though.

Overall, it was to much death and much to quickly. Its not like they were ambushed, they all died or left in different places. And all in short succession.

And there was alot I still didnt understand to well. Todash darkness, space between worlds, the monsters there, Prim, Arthur Eld, all this crap. I felt I was expected to imagine way to much of the story in here. But hey, I got a picture of what was going on and that IS sufficent, but I still would like more.

And was Dandelo supposed to be IT? I mean, Stuttering Bill was there and such. It seems he was a LOT easier to kill than in IT, so thats why I'm confused. I am guessing he was supposed to be, but I hope someone clarifys.

Get the book read it, you at least owe it to the rest of the series.

There are several CDs that skip huge sections of the book. You should be ashamed of yourself for selling this very poor quality product.

This is the last in the The Dark Tower and it is Very different than the other books. It is NOT for the weak of stomach. King's experience with his accident is very much in evidence with the book. It is darker and meaner than any of his others ... which works for this conclusion. And yet at the same time he shows a deeper compassion with Roland and those in his story. There are many surprises which makes this a more satisfying read ... many situations had gotten to the point where they were predictable. This is not a predictable Read. I started reading this series in the late 70's and now I will miss the characters and the beam.

Well, this book was a shaker, I have to say. It was shaking me many time with different emotions, like anger, sadness, joy, etc.

I finished it yesterday, and could not really sleep tonight... becaused of the ending. Well after I thought about it hard enough, I agree, it is the best ending that could have been written.

So, after all the only problem, which I still have with a book (or series in total) ir the presence of SK in the book. Although he writes, that it was necessary, inevitable, or whatever, I still fell, that it would have been better without him.

Otherwise I say thankya, Mr. King, thank ya big big!
