The Dark Tower IV
Books | Fiction / Fantasy / Dark Fantasy
The fourth volume in the brilliant Dark Tower Series is “splendidly tense…rip-roaring” (Publishers Weekly)—a #1 national bestseller about an epic quest to save the universe.In Wizard and Glass, Stephen King is “at his most ebullient…sweeping readers up in…swells of passion” (Publishers Weekly) as Roland the Gunslinger, Eddie, Susannah, and Jake survive Blaine the Mono’s final crash, only to find themselves stranded in an alternate version of Topeka, Kansas, that has been ravaged by the superflu virus. While following the deserted I-70 toward a distant glass palace, Roland recounts his tragic story about a seaside town called Hambry, where he fell in love with a girl named Susan Delgado, and where he and his old tet-mates Alain and Cuthbert battled the forces of John Farson, the harrier who—with a little help from a seeing sphere called Maerlyn’s Grapefruit—ignited Mid-World’s final war. Filled with “blazing action” (Booklist), the fourth installment in the Dark Tower Series “whets the appetite for more” (Bangor Daily News). Wizard and Glass is a thrilling read from “the reigning King of American popular literature” (Los Angeles Daily News).

"I’m going to go ahead and make my review now. I still have a few hours of reading left. However, I find myself in a perfect place to write a review for this book here on the toilet. After the third book I was really looking forward to seeing what happens next in the adventure. But, we got a flash back. Nothing wrong with that. But, this look back at Roland’s story was long, confusing and slow. I had a very hard time following along, because it was boring. I cared nothing for the characters introduced, which didn’t help with following the story. Also, S. King can be extremely disgusting when describing sexual content in his books. I’m no alter boy myself, but his visual are a turn off. They added nothing to the story. Same with past books I’ve read with his description of people of color. He goes overboard and it adds zero to the story. I think I’m going to get off this Dark Tower train and find something new to read. When it’s good it’s enjoyable, but there’s been less excitement as of late. "
