The ending SUCKED! The whole series was fantastically entertaining and well-written, but after over 100 hours and 7 months of using my precious audible points to listen to this series, the nature of the ending made me feel like those were all wasted hours. Had I but known, I probably still would have been unable to control myself from listening, but COME ON! I am still seething.
This was absolutely the worst Stephen King ending of them all. Too bad.
I will never have these many hours of my life back. I felt compelled to finish the series I started reading WAAAY back when. If I'd known then what I know now; I kept trying to stop listening, then figured my investment was too high and I needed to see it through. But YOU don't have to. Stop at Wolves of the Calla, and know that everything "ends" just as it should.
Stephen King simply blew it on this one. I am a die hard King fan and a huge fan of the Dark Tower series until now. To make us wait for so many years for the release of the final chapter in this compelling and gripping saga, and then end it like this should be punishable by castration! I compare this ending to the television version of "The Golden Years". Lots of action, suspense and drama, and a huge build up to an ultimate climax, then, "Sorry honey, not tonight, I have a headache". I demand a rewrite Mr. King, please.
skip the last two books of this series and make up your own ending
i honestly think these two books especially this one are some kind of experiment by King to see if people will praise junk if he writes it
so far so good Stephen
The ending, which was not very original, left me wondering if the entire series was an exercise in fulility.
You've seen this ending before, in Matrix Reloaded, and many a Twilight Zone episode.
Still, the series is a must for the fans of this multiple genre tale. At least the long wait is over.
