Publisher's Summary

The triumphant, gripping finale to Stephen King's magnificent, epic masterpiece.

Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA.

The final volume sees gunslinger Roland on a roller-coaster mix of exhilarating triumph and aching loss in his unrelenting quest to reach the dark tower.

Roland's band of pilgrims remains united, though scattered. Susannah-Mia has been carried off to New York to give birth. Terrified of what may happen, Jake, Father Callahan and Oy follow.

Roland and Eddie are in Maine, looking for the site which will lead them to Susannah. As he finally closes in on the tower, Roland's every step is shadowed by a terrible and sinister creation. And finally, he realises, he may have to walk the last dark strait alone....

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.

    "Heartbreakingly good. "

    A satisfying read. Fitting end for all. Still ends with the best closing line for the series.

    "Satisfying end to the saga"

    It's amazing how much the author fits in to this final instalment of the Dark Tower saga. We have some sad goodbyes, some surprise introductions and a very satisfying finish to a story of the ages.

    "Major Disappointment - Series a Let Down"

    The seventh book in the series was disjointed and a major disappointment as far as wind up is concerned. Not really expecting a happy ending but something a bit more than the old cliche of "walking off into the sunset". Even the author, storyteller or Stephen King character seemed to express his wish that the thing would just plain end. In fact I perceived an attitude of contempt from him for the story and the reader alike.

    THE SERIES

    I stuck with this series for two reasons. One - I owed some loyalty to Stephen King because I have enjoyed his work previously and he has stated that this was his major work. Two I invested in the complete series at a time when Audible had a sale on book series.

    The trend of the series, in my opinion, can be noted from my previous reviews.
    1 - Stick With It - Believe in Stephen King
    2 - So Glad I Stuck Around
    3 - Wanted to Stop but Could Not
    4 - Disappointing Detour
    5 - I don't get it
    6 - This from a fan of Mr King - WHY?
    7 - Major Disappointment

    I feel very sorry for Stephen King if he considers this to be his "magnum opus". Where to from here? I thought he was much better than this load of tripe he has given us. I have been a huge fan for such a long time and I was expecting so much more from him.

    There were of course some excellent parts mostly to do with King's craftsmanship with words, however, the whole series was disjointed and overblown. More than 135 hours of listening (not including the pitiful narration of "The Wind Through the Keyhole") could easily have been reduced by half.

    Continuity was exceptionally poor. Involvement of characters was a mish mash of contrived entries and exits, seemingly because the author was bored with his people and couldn't think of anything else. The villains were insipid and the final confrontation a super anticlimax. The storyline had no real structure and can be perceived as if the author was questioning himself while writing, "What else can I squeeze in, have I got enough science fiction, do I need more horror?"

    I'm sure Mr King will reap the benefits of this series and that there are lots of die hard fans out there who will disagree with my opinions however I would recommend anyone read all the stories in the original novels e.g. Salem's Lot, The Stand, The Talisman, Insomnia etc. etc. but definitely not the Dark Tower Series which has tried to incorporate them all and is a major disappointment.

    The best things about this series are the narrations by Frank Muller and George Guidall and the character OY.

    Story
    "A Story Like No Other"
    Would you listen to The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to the entire series again. The reader has the most perfect voice for this type of book, he plays the characters perfectly and allows you to get lost in the story.


    What other book might you compare The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower to, and why?

    The Dark Tower series is on par with J.R.Tolkien's Lord of The Rings. It is the story of a great quest, a quest to end or save the world. Every character breathes life into the story leaving you wanting more. Definitely cannot put these books down.


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

    I think George's voice for Suzannah is the funniest, he does it well but its still funny to hear him talking as a southern madam.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry AND Laugh! This book is what it feels like to be bi-polar. One moment you're in stiches, the next you're a blubbering mess! I don't want to give too much away but, it will definitely pull at your heart strings one way or another.


    Any additional comments?

    Stephen King is one of the best writers ever to grace this earth. I would recommend this book if you are a lover of fantasy, horror or science fiction. It has so many elements that it would be impossible to not please every reader out there.

    "Good concept, terribly written."

    Had to really make myself finish it. It's a shame because there are some really cool ideas throughout the story that could have been built into something incredible, but much like most of the series after book 2, the writing just becomes lazy. You have random event followed by random event, over and over, with no continuity or logic, and while it's all supposed to be part of the fun, it feels more like the author is just trying to fill pages at the expense of good story telling.

    Words simply cannot describe the emotions you will experience as you read this final Dark Tower book. I am looking forward to the Dark Tower movie now more than I ever was!

    Thanks Stephen King for such an amazing series of books. Roland and his ka-tet will be forever in my thoughts.
