Since being introduced to Stephen King novels by my English teacher in the 80's I have been hooked and have read all of your books. Christine and the Stand were my 1st loves but the Dark Tower Novels are my true love. You are truly a wordsmith Mr King and may Roland, Jake, Oy, Eddie and Susannah continue to dance in your dreams, may it do ya fine!

At the end of this book the dark man is Randall Flagg isn't it? The evil is the same character which disappear at the final of The Stand novel. I have to wait a period untill the fourth book will be translated in romanian... a very difficult period for me....

Roland is truly an inspiring character. A man who keeps calm in front of the most terrible overwhelming odds. I look up to this character and I'm willing to finish reading the series. Keep up the good work Stephen King.

Since I joined the Stephen King Library 6 years ago I have read the Dark Tower series 4 times from the Gunslinger to The Dark Tower. Wizard and Glass is by far my favorite out of all seven.

Like the reader below me, I also just finished this book today. This was probably my favorite book of the series so far and that is saying a lot considering I loved the first two. It's brilliant to see the way this story has played out and I particularly enjoyed the many conversations between the ka-tet and also the introduction of Blaine the pain. The cameo of Richard Fannin/Randall Flagg was impressive and I can't wait to see how that plays out. Finally, the ending surprised me quite a bit because unlike the first two, this one did not have such closure. All in all, this was a brilliantly-written sequel to the first two and I cannot wait to begin reading the 4th novel.

Just finished this today. Great continuation of Roland and his ka-tets quest for the Dark Tower. My favorite points were Roland and Jake's reunion and the appearance of Richard Fannin ( aka Walter, aka Marten, and even more amazing , aka RANDALL FLAGG! true SK fans will know who that is). Cant wait to start Wizard and Glass tomorrow.

I'm 17, I just recently picked up your book the gunslinger an immediately became facinated with the series. I read gunslinger about 3 times before I had a chance to pick you your second book and I can't wait to get to the third.

Wow...what an amazing novel. The best part about this book, and just about every other Stephen King novel, is that everything is so vividly real. The fight against the giant bear, the haunted house coming alive, the city of Lud, the Tick-Tock man, and Blain the Mono are all so real that you feel like you are Eddie, or Susannah, or Jake traveling right alongside Roland. This is one of (if not the best book I have ever read). King you are amazing!!!

the picture stephen paints of Lud is truly incredible. for me, this is the dark tower novel where things truly take off. i was so blown away by 'the god drums' and immediately had to go and find 'velcro fly' so i could hear it. each time i hear that intro i envisage the Lud massacre and get goosebumps. the realisation that Lud is an alternate new york is the key to everything that comes after it in the dark tower saga. wizard and glass is my favourite dark tower novel but Lud is my favourite piece of the entire dark tower story as a whole. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

I started reading Stephen King novels when I was in middle school (about 12 years old). My mom bought me this book the same year and neither of us really paid attention to the title so I started reading the book before I realized it was a part of a series! Naturally I felt like an idiot when I finished the book and realized that there were 2 books preceding it in The Dark Tower Series. I was hooked though so I bought the other 2 and read them, re-reading number three after I got caught up.
