Staff Reviews


Stephen King's Dark Tower series has been referred to as King's "magnum opus," and for good reason. None of his numerous novels will ever compare to the mastery of this series. We follow Roland, the last gunslinger in a universe parallel to our own, on an epic quest to the enigmatic Dark Tower, which is a sort of energetic magical center point connecting many universes--including our own--and keeping them alive. The Tower is in grave danger, and it seems only Roland can save it. This story spans multiple genres and muses on many lofty philosophical themes. It is a wonderful, golden tale.

Description


Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba
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").
