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.

5.0 THE DARK TOWER Review
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...

3.0 The Dark Tower - Stephen King
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,...

4.5 The Dark Tower
My first thought when I finished this book: So many people are going to hate that ending. In the final book of the Dark Tower series, Roland finally reaches the Tower, but you’ll never guess what happens next. I love this book so much that I don’t know where to start. I’ve read enough Stephen Ki...
