This review is from: The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands: Waste Lands Bk. 3 (Paperback)
Most Dark Tower fans love this book and its' not difficult to see why. King is really gaining pace now as the story begins just after the ka-tets narrow escape from the lobstrocities on the Western sea.
The key to this book is how Eddie and Susannah adapt to their role as Gunslingers and as the book progress their love for each other grows.
Another Member of the Ka-tet, Jake has a large influence on the story throughout but to say anymore would spoil it.
So, the ka-tet now makes its' way to the Tower and in this book around five major events happen to them, making this the most action packed book out of them all.
Firstly, they must find the path to the Tower, this is done by finding a guardian at the edge of a beam and then follow that path as all the beams serve/lead to a path to the Tower.
This is how they encounter the guardian in the forest, a bear and the new Gunslingers are called into action right away. The book begins at a frantic pace and keeps it up to the end.
The one annoying thing is in this book is that King leaves the readers in mid-story, a cliffhanger, forcing you to rush out and buy Wizard and Glass to find out how it ends. Reading this book before Book four was published would have been very frustrating.
Some prefer the story to say within Rolands' world whilst others like it when he dips back into New York. Unlike The drawing of the three, where the majority was in New York, this book is more balanced between the two, there is a one large New York section and that's it.
This is one of the best in the series so far so enjoy it!
