And I figured if it took King his whole writing life to finish this series, and now it's going to be a movie, then I'd better read it in the original and know the tale, so I'm prepared for it in advance. I usually like the book better than the movie they make from it.
Although, according to King, he does not write these stories... They only flow through him (from the navel, apparently)
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.
Speed/pace. Everything moves along at a nice clip
Characters development. We see the rest of the Ka-tet (particularly Eddie and Susannah) come into the light more, as well as secondary/tertiary characters like Mia and Calvin Tower
Action. One of the best set pieces in maybe the whole series, when Eddie and Roland take on the ambush at the general store.
Ending. This is the only con and I will not spoiler it, but if you were frustrated by the end of The Waste Lands (I was not) then this will enrage you. Unfortunately this simply does not have an ending. It is not a cliffhanger, there is simply no resolution to the story. Very very frustrating, especially when if this is the penultimate book that means the first part of the next (and final) book will be about cleaning up the end of Song and not the conclusion of the Tower.
All in all a great brisk read. The pace is frenetic and you can feel the shattered Ka-Tet moving towards their individual goals at a breathtaking speed. I'm very eager to see how King concludes his magnum opus.
This is a tough one to rate. Mostly because I think overall this was my least favorite book in the series thus far (which shouldn't have come as that much of a surprise to me because Susannah is certainly my least favorite character). However it also contained some of my absolute favorite parts of the series. For example I would rate Roland and Eddie's plot line a firm five stars, but Susannah's only two. And I absolutely loved what Stephen did with the ending. He's clever this King guy.
