Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King

Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King

There are two things I dislike about Wolves of the Calla. One: The pacing is insanely slow.  It’s one of the longest books in the Dark Tower series, and yet, it only needs to tell one story.  In fact, it almost feels like filler to pass the time as Susannah develops her little… problem.  That isn’t to say it’s not an interesting story, but it takes an awfully long time to get to the point. Two:  At least 50% of Wolves of the Calla is a retelling and extension of ‘Salem’s Lot.  Why?  When we get to the Calla, we meet Pere Callahan […]

After his conversation with the Man in Black, Roland faces the long road to the Dark Tower.  He’s starved, dehydrated… Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger of Gilead, is dying.

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

I have read this book twice, but this was the first time I’ve listened to it.  And, for some strange reason, I remembered most of the ending completely wrong. There are a few spoilers are you go along, impossible to avoid unless I leave my review to “I liked it” so read at your own risk. Characters ❤︎ I have always loved the dark and sinister, but somehow still likable Roland Deschain.  Eddie and Jake and Oy are all well-loved as well, and even Susannah grows on me.  This book sees the addition of a few characters, and a farewell to […]
