Publisher's Summary

All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room (really a chamber of horrors) in Thunderclap's Fedic Station; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and 61st with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters.

Thus the audiobook opens, like a door to the uttermost reaches of Stephen King's imagination. You've come this far. Come a little farther. Come all the way. The sound you hear may be the slamming of the door behind you. Welcome to The Dark Tower.

What the critics say

"A pilgrimage that began with one lone man's quest to save multiple worlds from chaos and destruction unfolds into a tale of epic proportions....a closer look at the brilliant complexity of his Dark Tower world should explain why this bestselling author has finally been recognized for his contribution to the contemporary literary canon. With the conclusion of this tale...King has certainly reached the top of his game." (Publishers Weekly)

the quest for the tower

Stephen King has brought me across countless ages, and dimensions, my quest for the tower has been formidable, walking with Roland and the tet. Now my quest has ended, or has it?
Excellent production from start ro finish George Guidell did an exemplary job finishing where Frank Muller left off.

Poor quality of recording

This recording has many glitches/audio problems. Would have enjoyed it more if it didn't have so many problems with a digital skip or scratch noise.

A very good listen

The final installment of The Dark Tower series certainly wasn't the best book in the series but it is solid. Slower and less immersive than the Wizard and Glass or Wolves of the Calla it ebs and flows with action and detail that adds to the readers overall understanding of the story. Although I read the first six books and have only listened to this final book, I am happy I did. The book sets itself up well to listen to and George Guidall does a masterful job in portraying the many different characters. Book seven was my least favorite of them all but as a series I must say that I have read few that even compare to just how epic this story has been!

What a ride this whole story was.

Just loved this whole series. I am so sad this is the last book. If you have made it this far into the series you have to fet this last book. Pretty interesting ending.
