Do You Know? itview spoilerThe FlawsThe biggest let down to men this was that the whole Modred thing was so anti climatic His birth was a huge focus Korean War in the final three books yetn the end all he managed to do was send poor Oy to a grisly death In fact there s precious little satisfaction to be found Serpico in any the endings of the major villains Modred was dying of food poisoning anyhow Oy spoils his attack and Roland dispatches him with ease The Crimson Kings
just crazy old man on a balcony throwing bombs around and he gets taken out by a pencil eraser crazy old man on a balcony throwing bombs around and he gets taken out by a pencil eraser by a kid with no tongue Maybe worst of all was the ending of Randall Flagg aka Walter aka Martin This one was especially galling because not only had he been Roland s nemesis he d been a boogeyman n King s books for years Yet he gets eaten by Modred the baby That suckedI m still not sure about King writing himself
into the story either I don t think he did t out of the story either I don t think he did Truyol Y Serra's Doctrines of International Law it out of because he made himself look pretty awful overall but at some point after his accident I think he couldn t separate what he d gone through from the storyt nspired him to finally finish It didn t ruin the series for me but I kind of wish he d come up with something else Having gotten that out of my system let s proceed toThe MasterpieceI loved the whole concept of the Tet Corporation and I continue to hope that someday King will give us a book detailing ts war against N Central Positronics and Sombra I could have read several chapters regarding that piece The character deaths were Globalization, Sports Law and Labour Mobility: The Case of Professional Baseball in the United States and Japan incredibly well done and still painful the third time through this We ve known since Roland let Jake fallnto the abyss Competitive People Strategy: How to Attract, Develop and Retain the Staff You Need for Business Success in The Gunslinger that this uest to find the Dark Tower would cost Roland dearly but I was not prepared for how high the price turned out to be Which brings us to my favorite part the ending Thedea that Roland has been stuck n an endless cycle of climbing the Tower only to find himself
at the of the series seems kind of obvious n retrospect but caught me completely by surprise As King noted The International Law of Biotechnology: Human Rights, Trade, Patents, Health and the Environment in the afterwordt s not a happy ending but Limits to Stakeholder Influence: Why the Business Case Won't Save the World it s the right ending I agree with that Roland s ultimate damanation wasn t that he sacrificed his friends to get to the Towert s that he risked the Tower again by pressing on to satisfy his own obsession to see Dungeons and Desktops: The History of Computer Role-Playing Games it aftert had already been saved that puts him Let's Talk 3 Student's Book in his own personal hellI also like how that sneaky bastard King made us all complicit with Roland s fate By offering us the chance to opt out and leave the book knowing that Roland reached the Tower and that Susannah was reunited with Eddie and Jaken another version of New York King made us all Roland by proxy We couldn t resist We had to know what was Socrates, The Wisest And Most Just? in the Tower And when we find out we all share Roland s fate of going back to the beginning hide spoiler.

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews The uest for the Dark Tower s ending All the weary miles endless deaths heroic stands and lost loved ones s finally coming to an end for Roland Deschain of Gilead and his ka tet And the weary but dedicated fan can finally savor that ending An ending that will somehow someway tie up all the loose plots and cause all their frustration about the years between novels the endless lore changes the confusing multiverse and even Stephen King writing himself nto the story to disappear from their minds For the end of the Dark Tower Saga will be a wonderful dramatic earth shattering ending The same kind of ending Tolkien provided fantasy fans with The Only Way Out Is in: A Modern Day Yogi's Commentary on the Synergy of Ashtanga Yoga, Ayurveda and Tantra in The Return of the King where a reader watched breathlessly as Frodo and Sam slunk across the desolate plains of Mordor striving to reach Mount Doom and destroy the One Ring only to discover to their sheer wonder and delight that the tale was still not done but that Tolkien would allow them to follow along behind the hobbits for just a little longer until the true ending at the Grey Havens Thats the type of finale The Dark Tower must have because every reader of King s saga knows that a tale as massive and epic as this deserves that Lord of the Rings type of closure The kind of ending where a reader closes the novel and sits there stunned The Complete Paladin's Handbook into silent contemplation at the stupendous journey that they have finally COMPLETED And as a reader begins The Dark Tower Book VII heshe will begin to see hisher deeply held hope coming to fruition as dangling plots begin to be completed Immediately Roland and his friends set forth to stop the Breakers of Algul Siento and save the Beam protect the Rose whatevert really The Lake isn New York and stop Stephen King from being run down by a real life automobile and killed Everything begins to take shape for the final push to the Dark Tower So Surface of the Deep: Searching for Booker Wright and Finding Redemption Along the Way it seems obvious that finally Stephen Kings going to reveal the 5 Ws and H of the grand saga Who the hell The Devil Aspect is this Crimson King who has orchestrated the destruction of world after worldn the multiverse and who the hell Selected Dialogues is Marten BroadcloakRandall Flagg really What caused the Crimson King to gonsane and begin to attack the Tower Why was An Unlikely Pair (My Once and Future Love, it so damnmportant for Roland to get to the tower Four Corners Level 1b Workbook in the first place How did Roland s uest kept the Dark Tower multiverse from continuing to move on When did the old ones die out and leave their machines or when did the worlds first start moving on And finally after all else has been completed wheres the Dark Tower and what will happen when Roland finally enters Stahl's Illustrated Substance Use and Impulsive Disorders it But then something unprecedented happensn this grand finale of a sweeping epic Nothing That Love and Punishment (Beyond Fairytales series) is right You won t find any of those uestions answered In fact you won t even find a dramatic ending like Lord of the Rings Nope Its not going to happen As Stephen King himself writes at the end of the uest for the Dark Tower I ve told my tale all the way to the end and am satisfied It was I set my watch and warrant on t the kind only a good God would save for last full of monstersback at the
