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 News).
Best of the series so far
Each book gets better. This one has a beautiful and heart wrenching love story.
A tesseract of a series!
Stories within stories within stories; each marvelously sculpted, painted and textured to be exactly more than expected.
Terribly beautiful, terribly tragic
This story is one that I find has a much more emotionally deep plot than the other DT books up to this point. My eyes were glued to the text with every spare moment I could find, and as I progressed through, I found that I had such a strong grasp of the characters, with their realistic traits and flaws, moreso than ever before. Definitely one of the top 5 fiction(?) books I’ve ever read.
