All good things must come to an end, Constant Reader, and not even Stephen King can make a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best. Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room -- really a chamber of horrors -- in Thunderclap's Fedic; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and Sixty-first with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters. Thus the book opens, like a door to the uttermost reaches of Stephen King's imagination. You've come this far. Come a little farther. Come all the way. The sound you hear may be the slamming of the door behind you. Welcome to The Dark Tower.

Series: The Dark Tower (#7)
Great! 4th or 5th time through and gets better every time. Each time I notice more, understand more, laugh more.
And... did that really just happen??? This series has been part of my life for months and I can't believe it's over. Though there is another book from somewhere in the middle that I still need to read: Wind Through the Keyhole. I think it tells some of Roland's early adventures. I loved the s...
I began this reread of the Dark Tower series exactly two years ago. Before that, I had always sped through the series and finished feeling sad for not having taken my time. So, I did precisely that this go-around. I feel as though I actually took the journey to the Tower myself. And now, the journ...

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the enormous last book in Stephen King's Dark Tower septet resists summation. Had you asked me at about halfway through, I would have said that it is approximately the most boring book in the world and would Stephen King just stop already. I even considered giving up on it,...
