Format: Paperback
I have been a fan of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, ever since the first line of the first book. The series, which was first released almost 20 years ago is finally drawing to a conclusion, and many who, like me, picked up a copy of "The Gunslinger" two decades ago will breathe a sigh of relief as next year, the final two books of the series are being released.
For those who have never heard of Stephen King's opus, the tale is of a Gunslinger, Roland, who must journey through a world that is not quite our own, to reach the Dark Tower, a building which stands at the nexus of all worlds. Along the way, he draws three people from our world to aid his quest, and has encounters with several enemies who would rather he never completes his quest.
The Dark Tower is a mixture of Arthurian Legend, Spaghetti-Westerns, Post-Apocalyptic horror, Time-travel science fiction, and other-worldly fantasy. Magic, vampires, demons, gunbattles, insanity and the wheel of destiny (also known as ka) abound in this series of novels. The ardent Stephen King fan will take great pleasure in spotting all the links to his other books (of which there are several).
Characterwise, Stephen King does a brilliant job. Yhe gunslinger is an enigmatic but fascinating character, who seems to have many skeletons in his closet, and many stories to tell. His companions on the journey are equally as fascinating, and their interactions with eachother to overcome adversary is one of the features that makes the books so gripping.
While the first four books in the series throw a lot of questions ("Who is this gunslinger?" "Why is he on this quest?" and even "Will he ever get there?" are just a few that crop to mind), the books have fuelled discussion and intrigued millions.

Format: Paperback
This series is a masterpiece, without a doubt it's King's best ever effort, he admits himself that it's become an obsession.
This is an epic story of light against dark, Roland the gunslinger aint no angel, he's a shooter, a killer, but is he bad? He starts off alone to find the Tower, he's never sure where it is but knows it's there, he only has his senses to help him, later discovering that he has no chance of doing this alone, he may be the Last Gunslinger, but he will need more than a six shooter.
It seems he has a destiny that is set, he must find his way back to another world (yet it is the same world in the past (or future time)) eventually stumbling towards some unlikely recruits including a small (already dead) boy, who are probably all that stands in the way of the evil that descends from the Dark Tower and it's ally, the ever elusive Man in Black, evilness personified, but who (or what) is he, the devil himself? Is he helping or leading Roland a merry chase!
After a few pages you get engrossed in the mystery and history, the atmosphere envelopes you and you MUST keep reading, what will happen next? believe me, you will NOT predict what his destiny holds... "Dud-a-chum?" "Dod-a-chock?" Will he succeed?

Stephen King is a mater of the craft. Books such as 'Salem's Lot, Christine, Pet Semmetry (I could go on forever) are fantastic- as I'm sure those who've read them already know.
King himself says that The Dark Tower Series are the best works he's ever done. I believe they are.
Even if you disagree with me on that point, The Dark Tower Series are wonderful books that follow Roland of Gilead and his fellowship on their quest to reach THE DARK TOWER. With wonderfully written characters and a fanatastic storyline, I highly reccomend THE DARK TOWER series for any and everyone.

Format: Paperback
I am not a big fan of S King but these books had me hooked when I read the frist one when I was 16. There is somthing wonderful about this section of books which go beyond Kings normal works. These are the best things he has ever wrote I can not praise them enough. Once you get hooked into Rolands world you will stay hooked and it was a great sadness for me when I turned the last page of the last Dark Tower noval

Another good read from Stephen King's Imagination of a Mix of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. Plenty of twist and turns to get the reader hooked to find out what happens next. A group of 4 books of a series of 7 in total to find out the final outcome of this trilogy. Good value for the Stephen King reader. Recommend this seller.
