Publisher's Summary

In this third volume, several months have passed, and Roland's two new tet-mates have become trained gunslingers. Eddie Dean has given up heroin, and Odetta's two selves have joined, becoming the stronger and more balanced personality of Susannah Dean. But while battling The Pusher in 1977 New York, Roland altered ka by saving the life of Jake Chambers, a boy who - in Roland's world - has already died. Now Roland and Jake exist in different worlds, but they are joined by the same madness: the paradox of double memories.

Roland, Susannah, and Eddie must draw Jake into Mid-World and then follow the Path of the Beam all the way to the Dark Tower. Along the way our tet stumbles into the ruined city of Lud, and are caught between the warring gangs of the Pubes and the Grays. The only way out of Lud is to wake Blaine the Mono, an insane train that has a passion for riddling, and for suicidal journeys.

    "Magnificent"

    This is my favorite of the Dark Tower books. Frank Muller at his best. I miss him so. I will probably get way more than my money's worth with this on for I will read it over and over in my many trips to the Dark Tower. Long days and pleasant nights.

    "He's a great reader..."

    Though I'm not sure he captured Susannah very well, not that I could have done any better.

    "No a total wasteland"

    Wastelands is very exciting and an exceptional entry in the series. The gunslinger trains his two comrades on how to shoot and hunt. Romance blooms. And just when I thought i figured out Stephen King pulls out the chair. I highly recommend this.

    "fun ride"

    The story took longer than expected to pull me in and left as many questions as it answered, but it was a fun ride. I look forward to the next book in the series.
