Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"The Dark Tower stands as an imposing example of pure storytelling....An absorbing, constantly surprising novel filled with true narrative magic....The Dark Tower is a humane, visionary epic and a true magnum opus. It will be around for a very long time." Bill Sheehan, The Washington Post

Synopsis:

The final volume of Stephen King's masterful, multi-volume epic is "a sprawling, eventful tale of demons, monsters, narrow escapes, and magic portals" ("The New York Times Book Review"). Unabridged. 22 CDs.

I have to say out of all Stephen Kings books, this will provide the most satisfying ending, hands down. He always manages to throw in that little twist at the end that changes everything, and believe me this ending indeed changes the entire story preceding it. I've heard a lot of nay-saying concerning the end of these books and I find it to be rediculous. I just can't imagine it ending in any other way. It really is like all of what is in those books is actually happening and King is just channeling it and writing it down. He didn't think up the ending, he's just telling us how it really happened. You will quite possibly find yourself reading through all seven books again immediately after you finish this one, just to grasp the full circumference of change the explosion of an ending creates. This one will leave you mouth agape with the beginnings of tears in your eyes, and just aching for more. Who knew that after over 4000 pages you could still ever possibly want more? Maybe someone should start thinking about a movie?...
