'Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger, encounters three doors which open to 1980's America, where he joins forces with the defiant Eddie Dean and courageous, volatile Odetta Holmes. And confronts deadly serial killer Jack Mort.
As the titanic forces gather, a savage struggle between undersworld evil and otherworldly enemies conspire to bring an end to Roland's quest for the Dark Tower...'

REceived when i got back from training course in Rugby.
Now reading, although shocked at the first scene with Roland waking up on the beach......

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and i knew i would.
A completely different feel to the first book. The them of sacrifice, redemption and doing what is 'right' continues, no matter the cost. WE have portals opening up with doors on the beach, nasty lobster type creatures who are not to averse to lopping off a few limbs here and there. Coping with severe adversity is very much the theme of this book.
And we see the first time the interaction between some of the characters from the past to the present, a bit like a thriller version of Back to the future. The characters journeying with Roland, start to grow their personalities.

Looking forward to the next installation.

Loved it and cant wait for Episode THreeeeeee.
Have decorated the box that i sent this book in, to Tutley mutley.
The idea is to try and inspire some interest in what the book is trying to convey.

Hope other bookcrossers can adorn the box similarly and put their own mark on it.

Happy reading.

Received (in the decorated box - which I didn't realise was meant to be passed on, Dazzygidd, so I might have wrecked in the opening thereof :-( !) couple of days ago, and finished (as unputdownable) - much more in the vein of classic Stephen King writing than the first book - less dreamlike, surreal - the landscape in 'Roland's world that has moved on', is more static (the beach, the lobstrocities) and building a foundation, so it felt less like motion sickness. And then there were three.
Can't wait for the next.

RELEASE NOTES:

On it's way to QuantumAyla at last! Finished this a couple of months ago, very enjoyable, and thought I had sent it off but I was wrong. Anyway, will be in the post tomorrow. Apologies for the delay.

Yay! I forgot all about this spiral so it was a lovely surprise to receive this in the post this morning.

I'm afraid I have two books ahead of this one but I'll get to it as soon as I can.

Thanks for sending it my way! :-)

Journal Entry 12 by QuantumAyla from Goole, East Yorkshire United Kingdom on Friday, November 2, 2007
I really enjoyed this. The characters are quickly becoming some of my favourite in any King book (second to The Stand of course) and the story is getting really interesting.

I love the world he describes and the glimpses of our own that we get, Also, the lobstrosities!? Great monsters!

Am posting this on to Tehuti today.

Oh wow, wow! Have been desperately waiting since reading the first in the series. Can't wait to read this, but please forgive me, I have a house move coming up so may not have much reading time in the near future

As good as I thought it would be, and now I think I'm hooked. Thank you so much for giving me the chance to read this, abrokenstarr, and for your patience while I took so long to do so!
