thought we needed a cool down but still, my serotonin levels dropped too much The best part of the novel for me was the drawing of the 4th member of the Ka tet after an adrenaline pumping sequence of evince in both worlds I was enthralled by the changing of perspective from one world to another The tension of those moments was King at his best Even breathing was a nuisance as I feverishly turned page after page in order to see what happens next The Waste Lands is the first in the series to finish with a cliffhanger but I won t be rushing to start the next one as I do not want to overdose on

the book, King predicts that some readers will probably be disappointed by the unanswered questions that this novel leaves But actually, the philosophy of unanswered questions was the winning strategy of a lot of narrative or television series, such as the famous TV showLOSTwhich I loved , and I m going to go out on a limb here expecting that it will be the winning strategy ofThe Dark Towertoo.Alright, cut the chatter As Blaine the mono sayslet the contest begin Vote 7,5Felicit mentre osservo il disegno della targa metallica rinvenuta sull orso appena ucciso, felicit di LOSTiana

ventura reclutati nel precedente capitolo La chiamata dei tre Tuttavia manca ancora qualcuno da reclutare affinch la compagnia possa dirsi completaNella nota dell autore a fine libro, King prevede che probabilmente alcuni lettori saranno delusi dal fatto che Terre Desolate lascia tanti quesiti irrisolti Beh, quella dei quesiti irrisolti stata la filosofia vincente di tante serie narrative o televisive, come la serie cultLOST , della quale sono stato un fan sfegatato, e mi sbilancio con ottimismo prevedendo che sar la filosofia vincente anche deLa Torre Nera.Okay, bando alle ciance E come

character focused works with fewer settings and action I don t know if King intended to switch the narrative styles between the parts or if it was a coincidence, but slowing down for a novel between, to focus on character development to accelerate in the next book, seems reasonable, although it sparked debates of fans about the uncertainty what the next part may bring Depending on what style one prefers, the agreeableness can vary, a bit of fandom frenzy included view spoiler The huge cyborg beast Shardik hide spoiler lets me think about something I possibly could once have already mentioned in another review, either talking about King or Pratchett, how it would have been if they would have discovered the endless horrible and funny elements, tropes, and potentials of Sci Fi for their works That wouldn t just have been an extra icing on the cake, it could have given it all so muchpotential for perversion, cruelty, and inhumanity that it could have blown readers minds evenA wonderful imagination that my beloved genre Sci Fi could have had Pratchetts humor or Kings terror next to the worldbuilding and often unique ideas some Sci Fi authors succeeded in establishing.Manipulating reality can lead to funny results and King uses it to mind penetrate a younger version of one of the characters and possibly integrating himself, meanwhile sober, as the cocaine addicted father.Did I mention the explicit succubus incubus style sex scene view spoiler with extreme plot relevant consequences, because it s not artificial insemination or in vitro

Chambers in the way station and letting him fall to his death in the mountains as depicted in The Dark Tower The Gunslinger However, he also remembers passing through the desert alone and never meeting Jake It is soon discovered that when Roland saved Jake from being killed by Jack Mort in 1977 in The Drawing of the Three , he inadvertently created a paradox Jake did not die and thus did not

As the series continues to build, it s hard not to be overwhelmed by the complexity of it all Even with this in mind however, it s such an enjoyable story, it just seems to work Most compelling for me was the resurgence of my favorite character of the series My boy returning just made me so, so happy There is really nothing else I can say about this that would be anycreative or insightful than what countless others have no doubt written in their reviews For me, one thing I always think when reading a book from this series is how absolutely EPIC it is The detail, the atmosphere, the artfully drawn characters, it is truly astounding to me that all of this, ALL OF THIS, came out of one man s brain I have already started the fourth book in the series and it is equally amazing, although the pace is a little different thus far I look forward to seeing this series out to its conclusion After the events of the Drawing of the Three, Roland the Gunslinger has two people from our world along side him in his quest for the Dark Tower However, he s also going mad because of a strange double set of memories in his head, memories of a boy he crossed the desert withThe Waste Lands is probably

events of the Drawing of the Three, Roland the Gunslinger has two people from our world along side him in his quest for the Dark Tower However, he s also going mad because of a strange double set of memories in his head, memories of a boy he crossed the desert withThe Waste Lands is probably my favorite Dark Tower book and epitomizes what I like about the series It s got the lost technology, lots of action,bits about Roland s world, and makes Roland s ka tet complete The story of Jake in New York was well done I even liked Oy the Billy Bumbler All the stuff that goes down in Lud had me dying to read the next book in the series The ending would have made me furious had I been reading the Dark Tower books as they were published.Notes from the 2011 re read The Waste Lands drives home the notion that Roland s world is coming apart at the seams It also gives us hints about what Roland was like before the world moved on, hints that will be further explored in Wizard and Glass.Even though I knew the whole deal with the key, this being my fifth or sixth read, it was still a tense moment when the key didn t turn and the creature was loose in the haunted mansion in New York I felt a single man tear threaten to roll down my cheek when view spoiler Roland and Jake hide spoiler were reunited.I also liked the Robert Howard reference, this being the first re read since I read all the Howard Conan stuff.As I said after my re read of The Gunslinger, it s a testament to Stephen King s skill that I was still a little worried about Jake in Lud, even though I ve read the book a few times before.Blaine is a pain and that s the truth.Notes from the 2014 re read I always forget about Roland having to deal with the time paradox he created Roland and Jake both going mad because of it was really well done and pretty believable view spoiler Are the robots at the portal symbolic of the ultimately circular nature of Roland s quest Did King know how the story would end way back when he wrote The Wastelands hide spoiler Every damn time, King still hooks me with the Jake situations in the mansion and in Lud That s why he s a bajillionaire, I guess.If I couldn t have dogs, I d take a

following the Path of the Beam towards the tower Along the way they ll pick up two new membersI was contemplating writing this review as an Ode to Oy, but words can t even express how much I love that little billy bumbler he is the CUTEST A particular highlight for me is when he calls Gasher asshole SASS Ka was like a wheel, its one purpose to turn, and in the end it always came back to the place

contemplating writing this review as an Ode to Oy, but words can t even express how much I love that little billy bumbler he is the CUTEST A particular highlight for me is when he calls Gasher asshole SASSY OY I also have a revelation that may shake you all to your cores having previously ranted and raved about how Blaine did my head in, I actually LIKED Blaine the Mono this time around Now, the riddles I can still do without but I found Blaine to be highly entertaining Memory is a funny thing, isn t it He was completely different in my head The house on Dutch Hill how STRESSFUL is that part, the bleakness of Lud, the people in River Crossing, that huge freakin bear, MEETING OY this book has so much fucking awesomeness packed into it that I don t know where to begin and I can t fit it all in here in detail, so I ll just say it was INCREDIBLE.This reread is completely challenging all my prior thoughts and feelings on certain books in the series Now, I would rank The Waste Lands as the best in the series so far whereas before, it was down near the bottom for me but still excellent, I do love all the books This one has gained an entire star following my reread I honestly hate reviewing these books because it s just word vomit I JUST LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH 5 glittering shiny stars This book contains the biggest lie a writer ever told me It s in the Author s Note at the end The fourth volume in the tale of the Dark Tower should appear always assuming the continuation of Constant Writer s life and Constant Reader s interest in the not too distant future.It took six years for the next book to come out Six Goddamn Years.Six years may not seem too bad to fans of authors who only release a book every decade or so, but there s a couple of factors that made this false sta This book contains the biggest lie a writer ever told me It s in the Author s Note at the end The fourth volume in the tale of the Dark Tower should appear always assuming the continuation of Constant Writer s life and Constant Reader s interest in the not too distant future.It took six years for the next book to come out Six Goddamn Years.Six years may not seem too bad to fans of authors who only release a book every decade or so, but there s a couple of factors that made this false statement particularly bitter The Waste Lands ends on a nail biting cliffhanger I literally yelled aloud in frustration the first time I read this back in 1991 and realized that I d have to wait for the next book to learn the fate of Roland and his friends Still, after some reflection it didn t seem that bad The next volume would appear in the not too distant future , right Besides this was Stephen King, the writer who churned out 1000 page books like McDonald s makes Big Macs No big deal I d be reading it by 92 1993 at the latest.Five goddamn years later, and I d gone from Stephen King and Dark Tower fan to the kind of crazed fury usually reserved for jilted lovers It didn t help that King was cranking out big fat books including some utter shit like Insomnia and Rose Madder Yet no fourth Dark Tower book, and every now and then I d reread the first three volumes and dream of the day when I d finally learn what happened next.The odd thing is that it still kind of pisses me off even now that the series is finished I get that same sense of frustration when I read this remembering the six goddamn years between books while seeing all kinds of other King novels come out It s too bad because this was my favorite of the first three books until frustration turned it into an irritating loose end.And I ll confess something that makes me a small, petty person Deep down in my shriveled black soul, I m resentful and jealous of anyone who reads the series now or who started reading it when the last three books were coming out like clockwork at the end They didn t suffer like the ones who read this and waited six years Then read the fourth one and waited SIX MORE GODDAMN YEARS FOR THE FIFTH ONE YEAH, THAT S RIGHT BETWEEN 1991 AND 2003 STEPHEN FUCKING KING, ONE OF THE MOST PROFILIC WRITERS I VE EVER READ, MANAGED TO WRITE JUST ONE GODDAMN DARK TOWER BOOK AND IF THAT MINIVAN HADN T VERY NEARLY KILLED HIS PROCRASTINATING ASS, I D PROBABLY STILL BE WAITINGahemExcuse me I ve still got a few unresolved issues with old Steve about this series.And what about the story in this book Roland is training Eddie and Susannah to be gunslingers, but he s going crazy from a paradox he created in the last book by time hopping to our world and changing an event that altered his own timeline They also find a creepy old decayed city filled with a murderous mob and have to deal with a monorail that is criminally insane.It s terrific, but I think the waiting drove me a little mad And now King has been making noises about possibly doing another book that would fill some of the SIX GODDAMN YEAR GAP between 4 and 5 You ll pardon me if I don t hold my breath Several months have passed, and Roland s two new tet mates have become proficient gunslingers Eddie Dean has given up heroin, and Odetta s two selves have joined, becoming the stronger and balanced personality of Susannah Dean But while battling The Pusher inNew York, Roland altered ka by saving the life of Jake Chambers, a boy who in Roland s where and when 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 then follow the Path of the Beam all the way to the Dark Tower But nothing is easy in Mid World 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
