Compelling as always...,
This review is from: Wolves of the Calla (The Dark Tower, Book 5) (Hardcover)
For the first time, a Dark Tower book FEELS as though it's part of a series, probably due to King writing the last three at one stretch. And I think I'm getting an inkling of where he's going with this, as he introduces himself as a character (as yet unseen) near the end of the book. It makes perfect sense, after all. King is the creator of the world of the Dark Tower, and all the other worlds bound to it, so it wouldn't surprise me a bit if he's the one sitting up there in the top level. From another author, this would seem a lame device, but assuming I'm right about this, I'll bet King can pull it off. Can't wait to see how he portrays himself!
The only downside? Bernie Wrightson's illustrations are easily the worst of any book in the series. The guy is overrated.
