3. 5 Approximately 800 years ago I began a quest a quest to take some much loved friends of mine on a journey like no other I enjoy doing things like this I enjoy people reading books that I love so much I am willing to bludgeon them with said books until they agree to read them Luckily, with the Gunslinger I did not need to do too much convincing That crazy MahFah Jeff joined on willingly enough with Delee and I Little did he know, he d be spending the rest of his pitiful life in my basement cackles Since our journey began we have gathered and lost many We have had some real fun times adding adverbs and adjectives to Delee s nickname We ve enjoyed the company of one another and managed to not kill Dan 2. 0 Yet Song of Susannah is my least favorite in the series No matter how many times I read the series through, Susannah just never grows on me Now, could this be because she i Upon coming to, Stephen King registered a mixed expression of fear, anger and puzzlement Perhaps being bound and gagged had something to do with it His face was contorted and purple and his hair was standing up with much of it covering his forehead and bulging eyes. The tall, ungainly gunslinger was standing over him, concerned and apologetic Sorry that I hit ya, Sai If I take off the duct tape, will ya promise that ya won t scream King vigorously nodded You was running away and shoutin and I didn t really know what else to do, but bop ya on the head, the gunslinger explained as he removed the tape. The first thing out of King s mouth Who the hell are you It ain t really who I am that s important, it s who you are Huh Yer the Gan, the God, the all creator of everything books you wrote about a Dark Tower have k The story wasn t bad, some of the new characters were interesting, but I cannot give it a higher rating because of the author himself. Stephen King has indulged in the ULTIMATE form of ego stroking in this volume and it pissed me off The plot could ve been structured some other way to avoid what he s doing right now you can adjust plot, much as it sometimes hurts to do so and the fact that he went ahead and wrote what he wrote is annoying and well, gross It s gross I had hoped, by the time I finished the book, that I could understand why he did it, that maybe I d see that the story really had to be written that way At the end of this book, I didn t see that and was still irked And disappointed. Only onebook to go, and I m doubting he ll redeem himself in my eyes Would ee speak a word of prayer first, Roland To whatever God thee holds I hold to no God, Roland said I hold to the Tower and won t pray to that Damn, I love that line It so perfectly sums up Roland, his quest to find the Tower, what it s cost him, and how he knows he isn t done paying yet. For years, it seemed like Dark Tower had been walking in aimless circles during the long breaks between the third, fourth and fifth books We knew that King had finished the final three volumes after losing a game of chicken with a minivan, and he d gotten the story back up and striding briskly in the right direction with Wolves of the Calla including ending that one on a pretty wicked cliffhanger Still the pace of this one took me by surprise It s like King suddenly pulled out a whip and started cracking it over the heads of the DT fans while screaming, Run, you bastards You got The 2011 re read Susanna Mia uses Black Thirteen and flees to New York to have her baby Roland, Eddie, Jake, and Callahan get the Manni to open the Unfound Door and end up in the wrong places Can Roland and Eddie convince Calvin Tower to sell them the lot where the Rose grows Can Jake and Callahan find Susannah before she has her baby Song of Susannah was my least favorite book in the Dark Tower series the first time through Susannah has never been my favorite character in the Dark Tower saga and this book is really Susannah heavy On the second read, I had to raise it another star The Susannah Mia conflict had its moments and did a lot of setting up for the big shebang coming in the seventh and final book A lotbackground information was revealed. I d be lying if I said Susannah was the reason I upped this one a star upon re reading
Announcement I am putting this back on the shelf for the moment. Please know, it has nothing to do with the book I repeat, it has NOTHING to do with the book It is a great book and I love my journey to the Tower, I am just a little overwhelmed with other things right now I feel like I am not giving this the attention it deserves so I will come back to it when I can. Actual letter from me to this book Dear Dark Tower Series,It s not you, it s me. No, seriously I love you I am low key obsessed with you, I just don t have the time to dedicate to this relationship right now. I will keep you in my heart until we meet again. Truly Yours,Meg Memo from Dark Tower Series to Meg ß Song of Susannah Ç 7 10Well played Mr King, well played Very clever of you to lower my expectations going into the final book with this less than stellar attempt Clever indeed Now I m not going into the final book with my expectations set at best series finale ever andhoping for nicely wraps up the series. Whilst not the strongest in the series possibly the weakest, if you can really call it weak this was still an exciting read in places Certain parts of the story actually were really good and made for a very quick read overall The shootout with Roland and Eddie near the beginning was one of the series highlights in fact and was truly gripping. The parts I didn t like all that much were the Mia and Susannah parts which did take up over half of the book, I found it hard to pay attention to these parts and was wishing for a quick return to some real Roland was looking fixedly at the already diminishing flickers of lightning in the east, where the land of Thunderclap waited for them, and the Court of the Crimson King, and, at the end of End World, the Dark Tower itself. Extraordinary I almost cannot wait for the ending, no matter how controversial. Full review to come Dark Tower reviews 1 The Gunslinger 2 The Drawing of the Three 3 The Waste Lands 4 Wizard and Glass 5 Wolves of the Calla 6 Song of Susannah 7 The Dark Tower I m going to sit down and write reviews on the whole Dark Tower series after I finish, but I just have to say these books are becomingandtiresome It just seems as if King has lost the vision of Roland the Gunslinger, so he in order to have something to write about constantly tinkers with the lore, changes history around, blames things on this multi timestream concept, or spends whole novels describing an event merely to snap his fingers and change everything the next book so as to move his new plot line along And the worst part of it all is that I ve begunThe Dark Tower VII The Dark Tower and it appears to be in the same vein as the last two novels and not the great novels from earlier in the series To me, The Gunslinger, The Waste Lands and Wizard and Glass were epic works, because King seamlessly combined fantasy, post apocalyptic, horror, and dare I say it Next To Last Novel In Stephen King S Seven Volume Magnum Opus, Song of Susannah Is A Fascinating Key To The Unfolding Mystery Of The Dark TowerTo Give Birth To Her Chap, Demon Mother Mia Has Usurped The Body Of Susannah Dean And Used The Power Of Black Thirteen To Transport To New York City In The Summer OfThe City Is Strange To Susannahand Terrifying To The Daughter Of None Who Shares Her Body Trailer õ Song of Susannah PDF by ô Stephen King And MindSaving The Tower Depends Not Only On Rescuing Susannah But Also On Securing The Vacant Lot Calvin Tower Owns Before He Loses It To The Sombra Corporation Enlisting The Aid Of Manni Senders, The Remaining Ka Tet Climbs To The Doorway Caveand Discovers That Magic Has Its Own Mind It Falls To The Boy, The Billy Bumbler, And The Fallen Priest To Find Susannah Mia, Who In A Struggle To Cope With Each Other And With An Alien Environment Go Todash To Castle Discordia On The Border Of End World In That Forsaken Place, Mia Reveals Her Origins, Her Purpose, And Her Fierce Desire To Mother Whatever Creature The Two Of Them Have Carried To TermEddie And Roland, Meanwhile, Tumble Into Western Maine In The Summer Of , A World That Should Be Idyllic But Isn T For One Thing, It Is Real, And The Bullets Are Flying For Another, It Is Inhabited By The Author Of A Novel Called Salem S Lot, A Writer Who Turns Out To Be As Shocked By Them As They Are By Him From ISBNApproxHoursCD S
