I'm in love with this story and these characters. It took me a moment with the first book, but I loved the second and this one. I'm on the edge wanting to know what's going to happen to them. With this author, you just never really know. The way they all come to together from different times and...

Great third series. Everytime I read it my inner eye changes. Love the part through Lud and Blaine.

The Waste Lands is the third in Stephen King's epic fantasy-western septet The Dark Tower, and it's always been my favourite. So it's interesting to see how it stands up to a re-read. It sees Roland Deschain, last of the gunslingers, and his new friends, drawn, for reasons best known to Sai King, ...

It seems like every time I read this book, life gets in the way and I can't ever finish it as quickly as I'd like to. Seriously -- every time I make another trek to the Tower, I can almost count on life getting hectic while reading THE WASTE LANDS. I read THE GUNSLINGER in one day and THE DRAWING OF...

The only coherent thought I had when I finished this novel was Um . . . wow.In this book, the gunslinger, Roland, “draws” two more members of the group who will help him reach the Dark Tower. One of them is an eleven-year-old named Jake, and the other is a dog-like creature called Oy. As the group f...

This is a 3.5 star read. Probably closer to 3 than 4 but I will give Stephen King the courtesy round-up. As always, I enjoy the character development of Stephen King. In terms of the plot, it moves along but too slowly for me to say it was a great story. I feel like the first two and a half book...

I'm not usually one for "fantasy," though there have been a number exceptions. I like to know "the rules" of whatever world I'm in (I guess there's a bit of Annie Wilkes in me), and it can take me a while to "calibrate" appropriately. The characters aren't that far ahead of me in some ways. Even Rol...

Notes from the 2014 re-read:I always forget about Roland having to deal with the time paradox he created. Roland and Jake both going bad because of it was really well done and pretty believable. Are the robots at the portal symbolic of the ultimately circular nature of Roland's quest? Did King know ...

The third Dark Tower book is not only my favorite in the series, but it's one of my favorite books from King period. Out of his immense catalog, it ranges around number five or six out of his best for me. Unlike THE GUNSLINGER and THE DRAWING OF THE THREE, THE WASTE LANDS put me in Roland's world,...

In the third novel in King's epic fantasy masterpiece, Roland, the Last Gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower, which haunts his dreams and nightmares. Pursued by the Ageless Stranger, he and his friends follow the perilous path to Lud, an urban wasteland. And crossing a desert of damna...
