About Stephen King

'At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time [specifically The Good, the Bad and the Ugly] and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of eight books, including The Wind Through the Keyhole, and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.'

Our customer reviews

Read this review if you have finished the series. Well, I finished the seventh book after almost four months of reading the series. It should be 3 months if I exclude the delays I had reading Susannah's song,(6th book). When Roland leaves the Tet-Corporation building and goes back to thunderclap the book begins to have a feeling of adventure. I got tired of this worlds' travelling back and forth between them and time, as well. Roland and Susannah went down the haunting Castle Discordia, trying to find an exit, trying to avoid a nightmarish centipede, they escaped it and then they go straight to the Dark Tower passing by Le Casse Roi Russe, Odd Lane in the White Lands of Empathica and at last the Dark Tower and always persuaded by the abominable Mordred. The end is bitter-sweet, where Roland reaches the room at the top of the Tower but when he enters the last door with his name written on, he is pushed by Gan into the Mohaine desert once again beginning his adventure from the beginning (book 1). This series is a vicious circle where end never comes. But Stephen King warned us not to enter the Tower with Roland, but we did it and here we go again. This is what is fascinating about the book, it has no [complete]happy ending and it ends not in the clich�?�?�?�?â??�?�© ways many books end with 'THE END' written at the last line but with a new beginning. Many readers like me will feel bewildered by this ending but I think all of us had the time of our lives reading the books. That's what I hope. "Long Days and Pleasant Nights!"show more
