Publisher's Summary

The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

To give birth to her "chap", demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none" who shares her body and mind.

Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining ka-tet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who in a struggle to cope, with each other and with an alien environment, "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.

Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever heard. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. Don't miss the other volumes of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.

What the Critics Say

"There's something about a crippled, black, schizophrenic, civil rights activist-turned-gunslinger whose body has been hijacked by a white, pregnant demon from a parallel world that keeps a seven-volume story bracingly strong as it veers toward its Armageddon-like conclusion....The biggest cliffhanger of King's career." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The Dark Tower series is my all time favorite."

    This is the third time I've read them. I rarely ever read a book even twice.

    "Could have finished the series in 6 books ."

    Song of Susannah was pointless and went nowhere. The time would have been better spent crafting a "real" ending to Dark Tower, insted of "mailing it in" with that tired and over used ending.

    "My Favorite Book Series"

    This is one of the greatest stories ever written. The characters become almost like your own family and each book is like a new story. I've read the series three times and wanted to try listening to it and I'm glad I did.
    My only regret is that I am going to be finished after the next book. I do have the movie to look forward to.

    Story
    "I didn't like this one as much....."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Well of course I recommend it to a friend. If you are reading TDT series this is a must.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the narration. I think Mr. Guidall has done an amazing job narrating the books he's done in this series. As soon as he speaks I know which character he's doing , before it's clarified.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've heard George Guidall read before. I adore his voice.


    Do you think Song of Susannah needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Of course it needs a follow up. Thank gosh there is one!


    Any additional comments?

    My title for this review is I didn't liike this one as much....as the others. That's not to say I didn't like it though. IMO it just drug on a bit(as any fan of Mr. Kings knows,he's good at that and normally I love it. But this book just didn't grab me as much as the others.I just wanted Susannah/Mia to have that dang baby(or whatever) already. I do like this book,don't get me wrong. I just didn't "feel" it like the others. Years ago I read(with my eyes) the first 3 books. When I found them on audio I was pleased. I commute an hour to work by bus so these books were a pleasant diversion to the boring ride. I have one more book to go,I've actually not read nor listened to the last of the series. Frankly I'm scared to. I wan't give away what another person from another well known site did but this persons review of another book in the series gave away book 7's ending and another important factor. So now I'm worried. I'm about to listen to It. Maybe after that one I'll be ready!
