The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands - Stephen King

November 29th, 2004

The Waste Lands - Stephen KingRoland, the last gunslinger, moves ever closer to the Dark Tower of his dreams and nightmares as he travels through city and country in Mid-World--a macabre world that is a twisted image of our own. With him are those he has drawn to this world: street-smart Eddie and courageous, wheelchair-bound Susannah.

Ahead of him are mind-bending revelations about who and what is driving him. Against him is arrayed a swelling legion of foes--both more and less then human...

Mr. King, you have my attention, sir.

What a great series. Understand that this is less horror and more fantasy, so do not shy away from it because of what made the author famous. I have now read the first three books and they get better and better.

Roland has sparked curiousity in his travel companions about the Dark Tower. This curiousity keeps them trudging along the path at his side. The same curiousity keeps me reading. I'm hooked.

Read this series, for your father's sake!

The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three - Stephen KingStephen King returns to the Dark Tower in this second mesmerizing volume in his epic series. Roland of Gilead has mysteriously stepped through a doorway in time that takes him to 1980s America, where he joins forces with the defiant Eddie Dean and courageous Odetta Holmes. A savage struggle has begun in which underworld evil and otherworldly enemies conspire to bring an end to Roland's desperate search for the Dark Tower. Masterfully weaving dark fantasy and icy realism, The Drawing of the Three compulsively propels readers toward the next chapter. Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever read. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement.

I wasn't so hooked after reading the first book in this now seven (7) book series, The Gunslinger, but that has now changed. I'm aware of what cult classics The Dark Tower books have become and I was curious to check it out. Guided by Tolkien, King writes his fantasy series and I need to find out how it all ends. Suspense, Mystery, Fantasy, Horror: All genres in which you could place these books. My only Stephen King experience is through these first two books of this series, though rest assured I will now read more of his work (starting with books 3-7!!). He writes in such a way that is so easy to follow. He writes these books like I would think the same words. They are very easy and fun to read.
