The best installment in the Dark Tower series yet!
on 2 December 1999
This installment picks up a couple of months after the end of 'The Drawing of the Three', and picks up a problem with Roland's actions in the fact that he has both aided Jake after his death in 'The Gunslinger' and then prevented his death in 'The Drawing of the Three'. This is tearing his mind apart knowing the fact that two interpretations of reality exist in his mind. He has to try and find away to stop it before he is killed by it. The story winds on to a classic confrontation with a riddle-obsessed artifical intelligence controlled train. The ending will leave you gasping for more. It has to be one of the greatest cliffhangers of all time. You must read this if you've read the previous two books if you didn't like them because this will change your whole view on the series. It's BRILLIANT!
