It's been a long, long journey to finish all 7 books, but it's finally done. Stephen King has kept me entranced for many hours to get through all these books, and I have no regrets not that it's done other than its over. Roland, Oi, Jake, Eddie and Susannah will remain with me for years to come. Another classic and one of my favorite of Stephen Kings now.
This is in all likelihood the best series of books that I have ever listened to/read. The Dark Tower being the best of the series. I would recommend the reading of this series to all.
This isn't the best in the series, but it is up there. I am reviewing this after my sixth time through the entire series, so obviously I love the series. The only downside of this book is Stephen King's lack of self control. He changes the tone in this book at times by pulling you out of the story by talking to you about the story about how "we" have been on this journey together. And, aye, we have, but it's like having an actor at the end of the play or a movie turning to the audience and saying "we're almost done with the play. Hasn't it been great." It's forgivable enough, but not very enjoyable.
Anyway, other than that the book is fantastically written and it is always hard to say goodbye to the characters you love. But maybe one day I will meet them in the clearing.

I've read this series since the spring of 1991. I've now listened to it through its entirety twice. This is Stephen King's Magnum Opus. May it do ya fine.
If you have read until this point, you may as well read this one. Can you really resist what awaits Roland atop the Dark Tower? Maybe, you should.
How King does what he does is incredible. This story is amazing and the way it's told is even better. I'm sad it's over, but wow. What an epic tale.
i never read a book where I felt I knew the characters more than in this story. Just like any great book it's the journey that makes it great. For me this book sits next to the lord of the rings in 1 step above the game of thrones
