The final curtain of a decades long journey. Many darlings lost along the way and and ending that is the ultimate "gotcha" to the Tower fans. The tale literally comes full circle.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "A pilgrimage that began with one lone man's quest to save multiple worlds from chaos and destruction unfolds into a tale of epic proportions. While King saw some criticism for the slow pace of 1982's The Gunslinger, the book that launched this series, The Drawing of the Three (Book II, 1987), reeled in readers with its fantastical allure. And those who have faithfully journeyed alongside Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy ever since will find their loyalty toward the series' creator richly rewarded.The tangled web of the tower's multiple worlds has manifested itself in many of King's other works — The Stand (1978), Insomnia (1994) and Hearts in Atlantis (1999), to name a few. As one character explains here, 'From the spring of 1970, when he typed the line The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed... very few of the things Stephen King wrote were "just stories." He may not believe that; we do.' King, in fact, intertwines his own life story deeper and deeper into the tale of Roland and his surrogate family of gunslingers, and, in this final installment, playfully and seductively suggests that it might not be the author who drives the story, but rather the fictional characters that control the author.This philosophical exploration of free will and destiny may surprise those who have viewed King as a prolific pop-fiction dispenser. But a closer look at the brilliant complexity of his Dark Tower world should explain why this bestselling author has finally been recognized for his contribution to the contemporary literary canon. With the conclusion of this tale, ostensibly the last published work of his career, King has certainly reached the top of his game. And as for who or what resides at the top of the tower...The many readers dying to know will have to start at the beginning and work their way up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "[An] imposing example of pure storytelling....The Dark Tower is a humane, visionary epic and a true magnum opus. It will be around for a very long time."
"Review" by , "A fitting capstone to a uniquely American epic."
"Review" by , "In the last two books of his Dark Tower saga, King pulled out all the stops....The Dark Tower is no different....As with the last three books in this series, King's writing is powerful and often graphic."
"Review" by , "King does a good job of bringing it all home in The Dark Tower....King is a master of the final stand. His climaxes are so stunning and so vivid, because like any good ambush, such care is taken in setting them up."
"Review" by , "I have reviewed all seven of these books in the News along with hundreds of other fantasy and science fiction novels in the last three decades. Both as entertainment and as literature, the Dark Tower series is as good as it gets."
"Review" by , "The Dark Tower is now a completed story, huge and obviously imperfect. There's a terrific ending here, followed by two epilogues. The first is easy and pat. The second is surprising and, in the context of the whole tale, far more satisfying."
"Review" by , "[T]he end of The Dark Tower VII is, in this reviewer's opinion, the best ending King has written in his prolific career."
"Review" by , "[A] telephone directory of a novel (800 pages) that will keep you up all night for a couple of nights....It has been enthralling and at times frustrating, but this final novel is the ultimate reward. Sai King, we say thank ya."
"Review" by , "King practically bludgeons his readers with clues, but we're so caught up in the story that it's little more than background noise. The final hammer blow is also a bit diffuse and confusing; it may take some contemplation and rereading."
"Synopsis" by , Creating "true narrative magic" (The Washington Post) at every revelatory turn, Stephen King surpasses all expectation in the stunning final volume of his seven-part epic masterwork. Entwining stories and worlds from a vast and complex canvas, here is the conclusion readers have long awaited — breath-takingly imaginative, boldly visionary, and wholly entertaining.

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet have journeyed together and apart, scattered far and wide across multilayered worlds of wheres and whens. The destinies of Roland, Susannah, Jake, Father Callahan, Oy, and Eddie are bound in the Dark Tower itself, which now pulls them ever closer to their own endings and beginnings . . . and into a maelstrom of emotion, violence, and discovery.

"Synopsis" by , 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
