Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1978, Stephen King introduced the world to the last gunslinger, Roland of Gilead. Nothing has been the same since. More than twenty years later, the quest for the Dark Tower continues to take readers on a wildly epic ride. Through parallel worlds and across time, Roland must brave desolate wastelands and endless deserts, drifting into the unimaginable and the familiar. A classic tale of colossal scope-crossing over terrain from The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, Insomnia, The Talisman, Black House, Hearts in Atlantis, 'Salem's Lot, and other familiar King haunts — the adventure takes hold with the turn of each page. And the Tower awaits....The Third Volume in the epic Dark Tower Series: The Waste Lands. Roland, 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 than human....

Review:

"Gripping...compelling...King mesmerizes the reader." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Splendidly tense — rip-roaring." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"While the story (inspired by Robert Browning's narrative poem 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came') is entertaining, what really makes it outstanding are King's unique, multifaceted characters. This is Stephen King at his best." School Library Journal

Review:

"The Waste Lands sees Roland and his fellow travelers continuing the quest for the Dark Tower. They journey through imaginative landscapes, over astounding obstacles, and meet with and confront a unique and fully drawn cast of characters, both human and nonhuman....Highly recommended for all fiction collections." Library Journal

Review:

"Chapter three of King's epic...saga [contains] some of his least restrained writing in years, great sagging storm clouds of padded prose that only occasionally thunder or brighten with lightning inspiration....Still, some of the action cooks up shivery suspense..." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Roland the Gunfighter and his two companions continue the quest for the tower at the portal of all the worlds...in this third volume in the epic that continues to dominate the bestseller lists.

Synopsis:

The third reissued book of King's macabre Dark Tower saga finds Roland, the Last Gunslinger, moving ever closer to the Dark Tower of his dreams--and nightmares--as he crosses a desert of damnation.
