Review: 5 of 5 Stars
The Dark Tower looms ever closer and yet even further. The world has moved on and things that should be illogical and impossible, are just the opposite.
I loved this third volume especially because I got to see Jake again. He and Roland have always been my favorites. Eddie and Susannah are awesome, too. It’s endearing to see how their characters are changing, becoming stronger. Oh, yes – Jake, Eddie and Susannah are as much gunslingers as Roland is.
I enjoyed the deeper glimpses in each of their characters, how I got to know them better, how their minds work, what they feel, how each of them relate to Roland. And of course, can’t forget the loyal Oy. Oh, I want a billy-bumbler, too!!
The volumes that follow just keep sinking their hooks deeper in me. I’m so deeply entrenched in The Dark Tower that it has become my quest, too, my obsession as much as Roland’s and I badly need to reach it, till the very end.
