“The Dark Tower series is one long great yarn, one that sucks you in from the first page and makes you read until you suddenly realize the sun's gone down (or come back up again) and you have no idea how long you've been at it. This installment is full of King-ism for better or for worse: a...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Doesn't get any better than this, folks. (Google Chrome shut down and didn't save the long - and great - review I had already written here so I need a little cool down before trying to repeat it.)”Alyssa M wrote this review Thursday, April 18, 2013.

This will always be one of my favorite books in the series, and is the one that caught me completely.”

“★★★'s -- A solid 'middle-of-the-series' filler volume.
A decent continuation of the story picking up just after the events of The Drawing of the Three. While the setting of this series is (so far anyway) too far-out to lend any sense of reality, King once again does not disappoint in his ability to create characters with whom you can empathize. Despite the surreal adventures the fellowship keeps experiencing, you can't help but fall into step with them as they run across one weird situation after another. They take it all in stride and, as a result, so does the reader.
Considering the abrupt cliff-hanger ending, I am very glad not to have read these books as they were being released!
“This book is not my favorite in the Dark Tower Series. I'm not sure exactly why. Maybe it's just that it doesn't feel like a lot happens for the length of the book. Blaine the Mono makes a lasting impression (with his load of children who might be laughing or might be screaming), but I just don't feel this book the same way I did The Gunslinger or The Drawing of the Three. Still, it's not a bad book and does advance the journey to the Dark Tower.”quadragon27 wrote this review Saturday, February 9, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Picks up right where Drawing of the Three left off. Not quite at the same level of sheer awesomeness as the previous book, but still a lot of fun.”Sam Worden wrote this review Thursday, February 7, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Well, I made it thru 2 volumes, but quit around page 50 of this one. It's too long and there are tens of thousands of words that should have been cut and I just can't muster the energy or the interest to continue wading thru it. ”Ted Kinni wrote this review Monday, January 21, 2013.

“This is just amazingly imaginative, clever, and engrossing. I've gotten so involved with the characters, the quest, the challenges. Blaine is a worthy and creepy addition to the story.”Connie D wrote this review Sunday, December 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
