The Dark Tower is the award-winning seventh and last book in Stephen King's Dark Tower series. I'm glad I've read them, but I'm glad I've finished with them. This book is 830 pages long.
from the back of the book:
Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you have ever read. The final book 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.favorite quotes:
So much you did and so much more you would have done, aye, and all without a check or a qualm, and so will the world end, I think, a victim of love rather than hate. For love's ever been the more destructive weapon, sure.

"never's the word God listens for when he needs a laugh."
"the folks who end up living the lives they expected are more often than not the ones who end up takin sleeping pills or stickin the barrel of a gun in their mouths and pullin the trigger."
Publishers Weekly says,
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, ostensibly the last published work of his career, King has certainly reached the top of his game.The New York Times review concludes with this: "If we've learned anything about King by the close of this series, it's that he's terrified of endings." Kirkus Reviews seems disappointed. January Magazine says, "it is Stephen King at the top of his form."
