Dark Tower Book 6 : The Song of Susannah

I’ve just finished listening the sixth book in the Stephen King’s Dark Tower sequence, sitting in the warm evening sunshine in the garden. It is difficult to talk about the story without revealing too much, but suffice it to say that the concepts it plays with are simply stunning. Everything else that King has written in his career is tangential to, or dependent on, the Dark Tower.

Other worlds than these
Gunslingers and wordslingers
All things serve the beam

First the smiles. then the lies. Last comes gunfire” – Roland of Gilead.
