The King is King, Long write the King!! Jul 2, 2009
The Dark Tower VII.........the ending of the seemingly, at times, endless epic tale of Roland, Jake, Eddie, Susanna, Oy and the many they encounter on the quest for the Dark Tower. A simile for life itself, and postulates on the hereafter, and the nature of deity. The way lives intertwine throughout the endless cosmos, and the Wheel that is Ka. This book charges forward with the speed and power of a juggernaut unleashed upon the landscape, and there is no putting it down until it arrives, panting, wheezing, and breathless at its ultimate, and only possible ending. King should be strung up for crafting such a perfect tale, and inescapable ending. This book will have you blubbering like a baby on one page over what may just be the most heart rending, saddest scene ever put to page, and after about a three page respite, he DOES IT TO YOU AGAIN!!!!!!! I had sometimes had designs to become an author, but I now see that all that can be written has been written, and so much better than mere mortals can do it.........King is King, long live the King!
I cannot, obviously, say enough in praise for this book,, and the entire series of seven books. Thank God I didn't discover these books until all of them had been written......I don't think I could have weathered the multi-year storm that raged between books 3 and the rest of the series. Buy them all..........Read them all.............Recommend them all................and then, READ THEM ALL AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
