      This book contains the biggest lie a writer ever told me It s in the Author s Note at the end The fourth volume in the tale of the Dark Tower should appear always assuming the continuation of Constant Writer s life and Constant Reader s interest in the not too distant future.It took six years for the next book to come out Six Goddamn Years.Six years may not seem too bad to fans of authors who only release a book every decade or so, but there s a couple of factors that made this false statement p [...]

      DISCLAIMER Many aspects of THE GUNSLINGER ACTION ADVENTURE EXPEDITION are comprised of potentially dangerous activities involving giant cyborgs, possessed buildings, demon rapists and extras from the cast of Deliverance, do you ken it There is a risk of serious injury, being Roont or even Charyou Tree Therefore GUNSLINGER KA TETS WITH DINH ONLY While training and remembering the face of your father can reduce the inherent risks, Ka is a wheel and they cannot be completely eliminated do you ken N [...]

      I rated the Gunslinger 4 stars and I loved it The reason I said at the time was that I thought that at least one book in the series will blow me away So this is book three and here it is, a five star rating.This volume of the Dark Tower brings all of the characters together We learn about their histories, how they link to each other in their previous lives in our world and what their role is as they join Roland on the quest for the Dark Tower.Now permanently in Roland s world, although it has mo [...]

      After the events of the Drawing of the Three, Roland the Gunslinger has two people from our world along side him in his quest for the Dark Tower However, he s also going mad because of a strange double set of memories in his head, memories of a boy he crossed the desert withThe Waste Lands is probably my favorite Dark Tower book and epitomizes what I like about the series It s got the lost technology, lots of action, bits about Roland s world, and makes Roland s ka tet complete The story of Jak [...]

      4.5 I almost, almost, gave 5 stars to this one I consider this volume to be the best out of the three that I ve read so far If the book had stopped midway it would have got the maximum recognition from me, no doubt I love and hate King s way of writing too much He managed to keep me at the edge of my seat for 100 pages, hungry for , promising my undying love and then, after the climax, he slightly bores me with for the next 100 Maybe the plot got too intense and he thought we needed a cool down [...]

      Some day if there s time, I ll tell you all the old stories the ones I know, at least They form a large tapestry, one which is beautiful but very sad Some fine day but not today and not in this third installment of the Dark Tower series For now, Roland and his friends are too busy doing nothing much for about six hundred pages They travel, they fight the ocassional monster or deranged mob leader, the sit by the campfire and have some obscure nightmares and prophetic visions All wrapped up in a h [...]

      The thing with this series is that it just gets better along the way This review might contain some spoilers I m not sure if some people would consider them as spoilers, so read at your own risk You ve been warned.The most amazing thing about this book would be the fact that Jake fucking Chambers is back If you ve read my review of The Gunslinger book 1 then you d know how much I love that kid We can be friends again King, that much I can say view spoiler Fuck you, Roland You let him go again Yo [...]

      As usual I have nothing but positive things to say about this book Well, actually there is one negative and that s the ending It was of course an incomplete work ending at a climax, however, since it s not 1991 any and I do not have to wait years for a new book to come out, I will not fault King for this In fact, I will look at it as a positive, for I cannot wait to begin book 4 Mid world is continuing to grow, and the questions to its existence continue to be answered It s funny, while reading [...]

      3.5 stars and I was frustrated enough with this volume in the continuing saga NOT to round up to 4 Steven King has a reputation for waffling, but this is the first time in the Dark Tower series, where I really felt the reader suffered because of it I loved Oy the Bumbler Had I not been listening to this rather than simply reading it, I am not at all sure I would have finished it.I consider myself very lucky not to have to wait the many years between the writing of this novel and the next in the [...]

      Even though I m not crazy about this narrator, Frank Muller, I ended up giving my audio re read of this book an extra star.All my old friends are together again Roland, Susannah, Eddie, Jack and even Oy I forgot how much I loved Oy and his golden eyes Even some of my old enemies are here, Gasher and Blane the Mono It s nice re reading these via audio, even if I have to wait a few weeks in between books while waiting for the next audio book to come in to the library This time I don t have to wait [...]

      I loved this book I love the connections between the characters past lives and between Mid World and Our When I also felt a strong link to other Stephen King books a mansion in Brooklyn comes to life and it was The Overlook all over again for me The middle of the book the mansion part was the most amazing part of a completely amazing story It could have just ended there for me emotionally, but it s all about the quest So, onward to Lud which brings every nuked out NYC full of mutants and psychos [...]

      I honestly think this might just be my favourite book out of this series I say might because I must admit, my memory of the books that follow IS quite vague So I might end up loving them even than this one But I somehow doubt it because this magnificent book reintroduces one of my favourite characters from the series, introduces another favourite character AND introduces my favourite villain from this series I won t name any names because I don t want to spoil it for anyone I also thoroughly en [...]

      It s so funny, as I m reading this series for the first time, to see the very polarizing opinions about each book One person gives it up after the first thirty pages of the first book because it s so fucking weird, the next wants to read all of them in a mad, passionate frenzy One person thinks book two is the greatest me , another thinks it s boring as shit an opinion I can t understand Yet another counts this here book as their favorite and reviles book four Etc, etc.I find this fascinating, a [...]

      Stephen, really Are you kidding me with that cliffhanger I mean, SERIOUSLY how could you That s painful, right there I weep not for myself I m sitting here in 2016, with the next book comfortably at hand All I have to do is reach out and grab it, flip it open, and find out what happens to Roland and the rest of his ka tet I weep for those who have gone before me those brave souls who purchased this book fresh from the presses, all crisp and new and inviting on the bookshelves those Constant Read [...]

      2.5 books That s how long it took me to become a fan of the Dark Tower I read 40 pages of this 3rd installment a year ago There it sat, a plain donut among a box full of sprinkles, and jellies, and chocolate frosted oh so niceties, a shit stain on the underpants of my mental library collection.And there I was, dreading going back to it, not really digging it but knowing deep down in my small, black, oil pumping heart funny, those adjectives work for many of my various parts that I should like th [...]

      Another stunning installment in the Dark Tower series, The Waste Lands brings our quest for the dark tower that much closer, and actually giving it plenty of momentum which is, I m told, possibly to be dashed in further installments.Where The Gunslinger was a correlating collection of stories and The Drawing of the Three brings the main characters together, The Waste Lands actually moves the quest forward, gives some background not a ton mind you , and gives us some direction.I m really enjoying [...]

      I started reading this to the Lord of the Rings soundtrack but started losing interest in the book When I turned off the music I discovered the book has its own music I mean that almost literally because it seemed so real to me This book is like the first time you saw Star Wars or Return of the Jedi when Luke was flipping around fighting his Dad It s like some epic story that covers the primary elements of the Greats the deeper, intimate, secret, unknown elements of these stories They are the e [...]

      Let me start off by saying that I didn t rate this five stars because of its stand alone content I rated it five stars because of the level it elevated the series too I wasn t very interested in the Dark Tower series after Gunslinger, but I kept going After Drawing of the Three, I was intrigued, I liked it a lot better than Gunslinger, but I still could have not continued and not really cared But now, after Waste Lands, I m hooked I can t wait to continue, and learn of the story I want to devo [...]
