During my own little 24 Reading Marathon (See earlier posts), I resumed reading King’s Song of Susanna, Book Six of The Dark Tower series (one more to go!) This is a journey that has literally taken years, but one that has been totally worth the time and effort.
From the Calla and the wolves of book five to New York City in 1999 is a big leap, and the tet of gunslingers get there by various “doors”, but eventually the ka tet are all in the same time and place, although they have not encountered each other yet by the end of the book. What they find in 1999 proves to be both interesting and action-filled. Characters from other books make cameo appearances, and old stories affect and merge with current developments. Horror and gore abound. Strangest of all, I have never had the experience of an author writing himself into the plot as a character in the novel before! Leave it to King’s imagination and creativity.
Great storytelling. Great humor. Great suspense. Great adventure. And, Great dialogue.
