That said, so far this was certainly my favorite book. It starts with a bang, concluding the insanity that is Blaine the Mono, only to slow down to a series of frustrating facts (most importantly the advent of the thinnies) that culminated in Roland telling the story of his early years, what happend after he became a gunslinger, of how he met his first love at the age of 14 and how, with his trusted and beloved friends Cuthbert and Alain, was swept away by "ka" into a sea of messianic proportions no e of them could've ever foreseen. The spectacular conclusion is a groundbreaker that shall not be mentioned, least there be spoilers, suffice to say ot's the grand comeback to Roland's new ka-tet, formed by Eddie, Susannah, Jake, and Oy. Most of the story, however, does take place in his past, when innocence was utterly wiped away in rains of blood.
Highly Recommended!!!!!!! Too bad I could not give 10 stars.
#1 The Gunslinger - Introduction to the last Gunslinger, Roland. This book was wonderful. It introduces you to some of the characters of the series and gives you the Gunslinger's quest.
#2 - The Drawing of the Three - Roland pulls future Gunslingers, Jake, Eddie, and Suzannah from our world over to his. I really enjoyed how this was done. The characters are very likeable (especially OY)
#3 - The Wastelands - The Gunslingers make continue on their way. Blaine really is a pain.
#4 - Wizard and Glass - Roland tells them the story of Susan, The girl at the window. A very sad thing that happened to him in childhood. A beautiful story.
#5 - Wolves of the Calla - The gunslingers help a town that is about to have their children taken. Jake makes a friend his own age. A character from another King book is met. This book was well put together.
#6 - Song of Suzannah - This one tells of something that Suzannah is going through.
#7 - The Dark Tower - The quest is finally over. The tower is reached. But who will make it there? Believe it or not this book made me cry.
#* - The Wind Through the Keyhole - This story takes place between some of the other books. It is Roland and his gang taking refuge from a storm and Roland telling stories to pass the time. The stories are beautifully written.
All of the stories in this series are exceptional. I love how they flow together. It really does seem like one continuous book.
