The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII | [Stephen King]

The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

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.

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)

    "Aaaargh!"

    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.

    "Don't Even Bother"

    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.

    "What the?????"

    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 in this series"

    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 made me wonder. (no spoilers)"

    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.
