The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower
All good things must come to an end, Constant Reader, and not even Stephen King can make a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.
Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room -- really a chamber of horrors -- in Thunderclap's Fedic; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and Sixty-first with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters.
Thus the 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."

The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower, Book 7)User Review - Book Verdict
For the seventh time since the man in black first fled across the desert in The Gunslinger , King picks up the strands of plot and character with which he has been fashioning the tapestry of Roland Deschain's quest for the Dark Tower and begins to weave the final portion. Without dropping a single thread, he has created a new, deadly nemesis in Mordred, the Crimson King's half-spider, half-human offspring, while reuniting Roland, Susannah, Eddie, Jake, and Oy. Though this book's publication is a bittersweet event for the myriad faithful fans, they will not be disappointed. Characters who by now seem like friends and family reach their destinies in a way that resonates with the ancient fundamentals of storytelling. The series is a classic, certain to grow in readership. And, as the folks of Mid-World would say, King has earned many long days and pleasant nights. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/04.]--Nancy McNicol, Ora Mason Lib., West Haven, CT
Let's just say that, compared to the previous books, the course of this book disappointed me a little. I'm not saying that this is a BAD book. Actually, it is the opposite: there was a lot of action, a feeling of anxiety and it even made me shed a couple of tears, which I never done with a book. Alas, overall, it was slightly worse than I expected. Not because of the number of pages (well, actually that never intimidated me), but because of the way the story goes on. I wonder if it wouldn't be so "heavy" in terms of content if this one book was divided in two distinct books? I wouldn't complain if half of this book's contents were in part of the previous book, you know.
In spite of it all, no matter how long the journey through the last book may be, take a deep breath and enjoy every single phrase of the book, because after that, the journey is over (hm... I wonder if it really is over...). Take a good look at each of the members of the ka-tet, every difficulty, ever occurrence. Expect for the worst consequences, the pain of important losses. Savor every single moment of happiness and the feeling of conquest to the challenges imposed to Roland, Eddie, Susannah and Jake. Nearly at the and of the book, you will be rewarded in an almost violent fashion. And, as expected, with a unique trip through the all-so-dreamed-of Dark Tower.
