Choices have consequences.
I won't choose a favorite and you can't make me. My love/hate relationship with Roland became more love than hate after learning more of his background in Wizard and Glass, though.
I never quite recovered from the switch of voice actors after Frank Muller's terrible accident that left him unable to complete the journey with us. George did a good job for the size shoes he had to fill, though, and I felt he maintained the vibe that Frank assigned to each character.
Odetta/Susannah was most memorable to me. She embodied what it means to be a powerful woman of strong conviction regardless of the adversity she faced.
So many people- my husband included- were enraged by the way the series ended. I am in the minority in that I felt it was really the ONLY ending a character like Roland could ever have. By books end it became abundantly clear to me that life is a series of choices. Save him or let him fall? Left turn or right? Burn the town or pass through? The ending we get is directly related to which path we took...Roland never swayed from his purpose but what if the whole POINT of his purpose was to learn to sway when it is the right thing to do at that moment?
I absolutely love this series. some things I didn't enjoy as much as others but overall the experience was wonderful. I really hate for this story to end but it is the will of Ka and so shall it be.
Absolutely spectacular finish (love his initial ending the best - you will know what I mean when you read it) to probably the best novel series I've ever read. Kudos Mr. King! The journey was well worth it. I look forward to re-reading (or listening to the great audio books) this in 10 or 15 years, and revisiting the characters. Now onto the prequel and graphic novels...
I didn't care for the ending. I am not sure what I expected. However, it wasn't all bad. It is interesting how SK's mind works...
Stephen King did amazing job with this masterpiece of work. The journey of Roland Eddie Susanna Jake and Yoi is brilliantly crafted and you never see what's coming next. If you've made it this far in the dark Tower series you will not be disappointed. Kudos to Stephen King I would love to meet you wanted these days, maybe we'll meet on a beach that has an unopened door.
I enjoyed the whole series. It got kind of crazy there toward the end, but I guess Stephen's car accident scrambled his brain a little with the last books. Overall I was happy and pleased. It was an inspiring tale.
