Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Bean, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero, a long-ago romance of witchery and evil, of the beautiful, unforgettable Susan Delgado, of the Big Coffin Hunters and Reah of the Coos. And when his tale is finished, Roland confronts a man who goes by many names, a man who "darkles and tincts" and who holds perhaps the key to the Dark Tower.

Review:

"Wizard and Glass...pulls back on the reins a bit, returning (in some parts) to the ponderous pace of the first volume. But, this time, King's experience and know-how keep this literary pause in the Dark Tower journey much more lively....Don't worry, there's still plenty of action and strangeness....Another solid entry in what has proved to be a compelling series." Dorman T. Shindler, The Denver Post

Review:

"The fourth volume...doesn't advance its heroes' journey...much from where The Waste Lands left them, but at least it gets them out of the fix they were in and primed to get into another....King is the genre fiction writer's genre fiction writer, and the action that is hackneyed here is also...blazing — brightly." Ray Olson, Booklist

Review:

"[W]hile this isn't King at his most accomplished, it is King at his most ebullient. He's at his best here...as a storyteller who can set pages on fire....Mixing horror, fantasy both high and low, western icons and pop references, the novel lacks structural rigor and sometimes even sense, but it sweeps readers up in such swells of passion that few may notice, or care." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Roland and his band of followers have narrowly escaped one world and slipped into the next. There Roland tells them a tale of long-ago love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman. And they will be drawn into an ancient mystery of spellbinding magic and supreme menace.

Synopsis:

This is the fourth book of the bestselling Dark Tower series, a work of epic scope and vision that has creeped into the worlds of The Stand, Insomnia, The Talisman, Black House, Hearts in Atlantis, Salem's Lot, and other familiar King haunts.

Second only to Eyes of the Dragon as Kings best, is Wizard and Glass: Dark Tower, book 4. This part of the epic is by far the most haunting. King takes our hand and tells us about Roland's past. You'll find yourself hoping and hoping for a happy ending, yet knowing already by Roland's own words in books 1-3 that there is no hope. You'll hear Susan's words long after you've turned the final page. Bring tissue, you'll need it. Thank you Stephen King.
