I think I may have been the first to notice and buy this book today, so I think it is fitting that I write the first review.
DTVII is the long awaited conclusion to the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. If you have not read or listened to the first six, DO NOT GET THIS BOOK FIRST.
If you have, tread carefully for beyond here there be serpents. (or something like that) No one whom I know that has heard or read the book debates that the story is the finest that King has ever written (all rate this book as the best in the series by far.)
They are, however, in no such agreement over the conclusion. It is impossible to please everyone. My feelings are that the story concludes in the only way that I would have accepted.
One piece of advice is worth giving though: When you reach the Coda, if you are happy with the story up to that point and can come up with the willpower to do so, stop there.
About the audio: George Guidall's reading of this novel is divinely inspired. His pacing and characterizations add a dimension to this book which made it even more enjoyable than the text alone. (This was also divine.)
One other thing: If you are going to post a review, please do not reveal anything of the content of the story. No matter how you feel, it is impolite and inconsiderate to reveal things to others before they even have the chance to learn for themselves.
