Publisher's Summary

All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room (really a chamber of horrors) in Thunderclap's Fedic Station; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and 61st with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters.

Thus the audiobook opens, like a door to the uttermost reaches of Stephen King's imagination. You've come this far. Come a little farther. Come all the way. The sound you hear may be the slamming of the door behind you. Welcome to The Dark Tower.

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

"A pilgrimage that began with one lone man's quest to save multiple worlds from chaos and destruction unfolds into a tale of epic proportions....a closer look at the brilliant complexity of his Dark Tower world should explain why this bestselling author has finally been recognized for his contribution to the contemporary literary canon. With the conclusion of this tale...King has certainly reached the top of his game." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "An Ending Fit for a King (character)."
    If you could sum up The Dark Tower in three words, what would they be?

    Choices have consequences.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    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.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Dark Tower and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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?

    "Amazing journey to the end"

    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...

    "The audio did some skipping in a small section."

    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...

    "WOW.... And thus ends the journey. ..?"

    Thirty four year's to be told by SK that I am a narrow minded loser to hope for a "conclusion ". Thanks Steve.
    PS. And, no, I couldn't have done better.

    "Almost to the end"

    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.

    "The story is finally finished!!"

    Stephen King tries to give us a decent ending. However, it would not be Stephen King if there was a Happily Everafter. The story ended well.

    "A noble end to a noble quest"

    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.
