This is my favourite in the series so far. I am currently re-reading this but have nearly finished.

I have to say again just how much I love this one, possibly for the relationship, but also because it is great to finally find something out about Roland. I think it is also nice to have a break from the main story. The characters are interesting - Jonas, the three Thorins, Susan, Cordelia, and it is great to finally find out more about Roland's original ka-tet - Cuthbert and Alain. I can't enthuse about it enough. I hope other bookcrossers enjoy it as much as I have - twice now.

'The Dark Tower beckons Roland, the Last Gunslinger, and the four companions he has gathered along the road. And, having narrowly escaped one world, they set out on a terrifying journey across the scarred urban wasteland to brave a new world where hidden dangers lie at every junction: a malevolent computerrun monorail hurtling towards self-destruction, Roland's relentlessly cunning old enemy, and the temptation of the wizard's diabolical glass ball, a powerful force in Roland's first love affair. A tale of long-ago love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman named Susan Delgado.'

This is on a spiral with 1-3 and 5 of the Dark Tower series.

and back to me.

Please try to read the book in about a month if you can, this one is 650 odd pages, so I expect it will be a little longer. Just don't hang on to it for so long that I don't see it before my 30th birthday! (I'm 23) Please journal when you receive the book, and when you send it on. If the next person in the list does not answer pm's for two weeks then pm me and I will move them down the list and try to get hold of them myself.

Happy reading!

Finished reading this yesterday.

Confirmed that it is my favourite book so far. The Dark Tower gets ever closer and I have to push myself on to read it - I don't want it to end! A re-read of Wolves of the Calla to go and then I will be on to the two books I haven't read yet...

This has been the best book i've read this year! I know quite a few just havent got on with what the Dark tower is all about.

BUT I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Roland reveals his more human side in this story and we get to find out about his first true love, Susan Delgado. This story is told in a place where, time is fluctuating. Roland's story bring us back to the time when the world has started to 'move on'. Evil forces are at work.

Roland and his two friends find themselves amidst a township that still clings to the old ways where Gilead is revered and Gunslingers are a distant memory. one that holds power and demands respect.

Beware of the thinny!!
Susannah and Eddie bear increasingly more responsibility and have now resolved to find the Tower with Roland come what may.

I love the old speech. It has a very flirtatious feel.
There's a witch, inevitable betrayal. love and danger at every turn.

I thankee sai!

Just realised hadn't journalled this ones arrival, and I'm half way through it! My son (who has always professed to disliking Stephen King, has nearly finished it!). Once I can wrestle it back off him, I will get it moving as soon as poss.

Wouldn't go so far as to call it the best book I've read so far this year - but I have enjoyed it. I'm a little bemused to the all out referencing to the American Wild West and the apparent sympathy towards gun-culture. On the other hand - if there's an infinite number of worlds out there - why not? Reckon we're delving deep into King's psyche and dream worlds here.
My son didn't realise it was part of a series (teehee - teach him to nick my books without asking me!). There is no doubt about Stephen King's ability to tell a good yarn - and that's how I take them.

Such a slow, boring start .... I really thought I had had it with this book and the rest of the spiral.
But suddenly a turn-around and I was right back in there again.Not sure that its my favourite of the series but as always Stephen King pulls it out the bag when needed.
Looking forward to the next ... even though its bigger still.

Just realised I must have forgotten to journal this when it arrived - sorry about that.

I finished The Waste Lands this morning and I need a bit of a break from King (read 3 of his in the last 2 or 3 months), so it'll be a little while before I get round to reading it.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
