Fantasy. Fiction. Literature. Thriller. HTML:The fourth volume in the brilliant Dark Tower Series is "splendidly tense...rip-roaring" (Publishers Weekly)??a #1 national bestseller about an epic quest to save the universe.
In Wizard and Glass, Stephen King is "at his most ebullient...sweeping readers up in...swells of passion" (Publishers Weekly) as Roland the Gunslinger, Eddie, Susannah, and Jake survive Blaine the Mono's final crash, only to find themselves stranded in an alternate version of Topeka, Kansas, that has been ravaged by the superflu virus. While following the deserted I-70 toward a distant glass palace, Roland recounts his tragic story about a seaside town called Hambry, where he fell in love with a girl named Susan Delgado, and where he and his old tet-mates Alain and Cuthbert battled the forces of John Farson, the harrier who??with a little help from a seeing sphere called Maerlyn's Grapefruit??ignited Mid-World's final war.

Filled with "blazing action" (Booklist), the fourth installment in the Dark Tower Series "whets the appetite for more" (Bangor Daily News). Wizard and Glass is a thrilling read from "the reigning King of American popular literature" (Los Angeles Daily N

I liked it better the first time I listened. There's so much vileness that I ended up fast forwarding several times so that I didn't have so much ick in my ears. Other than that, it's great. ( )

I enjoyed this book. However, it moved soooooo slow. This book to put it simply isnt for someone who needs a quick read. At 928 pages this book takes a minute to get through, especially if you dont have a lot of time to just sit down and read. Apart from that though, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This book picks up where the last one ends off, on Blaine The Mono, Roland and his Ka-tet survive, only to find themselves stranded in Topeka, Kansas. One that has been stricken with the superflu virus, while following i-70 towards a glass palace, they encounter a thinny, a place where the fabric of reality is falling apart. In the night that comes, Roland tells his Ka-tet about another thinny and his experience with it, now this is where the book gets really long. This "flashback" sequence lasts probably about 600, maybe 700 pages of the book. Although i felt this flashback was kinda neccesary and had a lot of really good action sequences, it was absurdly slow sometimes. To the point where it started to lose me halfway through. However, the end of this book is absolutely fantastic, the amount of action and drama found in this make all of this slow reading, and plot building worth it. I wont spoil the end, but it is just amazing, and i genuinely cant reccomend this book and series enough. The only reason this book doesnt get a 5 is due to the pacing issues and how slow most of the book moves. ( )

This is it for me and this series. I won't give it a star rating because it just wasn't for me. I could feel my disinterest growing with each new book I read. It took me forever to get to this one and I got a good 200 pages into it and realized I just didn't care.

It is good to learn about some of Roland's past. ( )
  everettroberts | Oct 20, 2023 |
I had high expectation with this books because all of my friends had given it a high rating.
Now, the book has points of being amazing and times when I wished it would just move on. The bookends are great with the portion at the very beginning (which should've been part of the last book, honestly) making me laugh my absolute ass off.
But the main portion of the book is largely a flashback of Roland's past. While it did have many interesting moments and does reveal a lot about Roland, it also just stretches on for way too long. It's well written , but it's a chore to get through because you know what's going to happen. I kept wondering why the heck I was expected to care about any of this past history. The main story barely advances at all! I feel like this should have been an in-between book, not a book that is part of the main story.
Eventually, the flashback story does become interesting and relevant, but man, it is slow getting there, and I really had to fight my frustration in order to finish the book.

I asked one draught of earlier, happier sights,

Ere fitly I could hope to play my part.

Think first, fight afterwards -- the soldier's art:

One taste of the old time sets all to rights!

Old friend, what are you looking for?
After those many years abroad you come
With images you tended
Under foreign skies
Far away from your own land.

ROMEO

Lady, by yonder blessed moon I vow,

That tips with silver all these fruit-tree tops --

JULIET

O, swear not by the moon, th' inconstant moon,

That monthly changes in her circled orb,

Lest that thy love prove likewise variable

ROMEO

What shall I swear by?

JULIET

Do not swear at all.

Or, if thou wilt, swear by thy gracious self,

Which is the god of my idolatry,

And I'll believe thee.

Romeo and Juliet

William Shakespeare
On the fourth day, to [Dorothy's] great joy, Oz sent for her, and when she entered the Throne Room, he greeted her pleasantly. "Sit down, my dear. I think I found a way to get you out of this country."

"And back to Kansas?" she asked, eagerly.

"Well, i'm not sure about Kansas," said Oz, "for I haven't the faintest notion which way it lies..."

This book is dedicated to Julie Eugley and Marsha DeFilippo. They answer the mail, and most of the mail for the last couple of years has been about Roland of Gilead -- the gunslinger. Basically, Julie and Marsha nagged me back to the word processor. Julie, you nagged the most effectively, so your name comes first.
