Publisher Description

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).

Yes

At first I had a hard time getting into the flashback. But as I kept reading it grew on me. This is one, I could easily re read again and again. Wonderful.

Great insight into Roland’s past — maybe poorly times.

Initially, I was dumbfounded with the exquisite writing of the Dark Tower series. I read the first three books in quick succession, and was having a great time. When I initially started the fourth installment, Wizard and Glass, I thought that it would be much of the similar experience that I had previously gotten from the Dark Tower series. I may have been wrong, but that doesn’t mean that it was a bad thing. In Wizard and Glass, we get a long winded story about Rolands past and his initial first love, and possibly his first sacrifice for the Tower. That Damned Tower. The book is about 700 pages long, and 400 or 500 of those pages will take place in the past when Roland is 14 years old. This book does not follow the ka-tet with Eddie, Jake, Susanna and Oy as often as I had initially expected, however, it is a very intriguing story, which gives you some valuable insight into the lore and universe of the Dark Tower and prepares you further for the following books in the series. I do think that maybe the story of Roland’s past should have come earlier in the series, however, I do understand why it was placed where it was. Overall, I found this book to be amazing and intriguing. I’m quite excited to continue my journey to the tower, and may take a break to read Salems lot before part five because I do know that it ties into the series.
