Can't Wait For June !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla: (Volume 5): Wolves of the Calla v. 5 (Hardcover)
It's interesting to see the various reviews that have already been set out about Wolves of the Calla. The beauty of any form of art is the different responses that it engenders in different people.
In my opinion (for what it's worth) this is the best of the Dark Tower novels to date. I wasn't bothered by King's self-references, and actually thought the reference to his own work at the end posed some fascinating questions about the nature of the universes described within the saga.
I can understand how some could describe the book as slow-paced, but I didn't feel that way myself. I actually found the whole 500 pages of preparation for the final scenes to be incredibly engrossing and tense. I was actually slightly shaking with nerves towards the culmination of the key scenes at the end.
The cliff-hanger is a beast, but I would expect no less. I have been very lucky with the Dark Tower having not read any of them until march of this year. I have now devoured the five volumes in a short space of time without needing to wait for the next one to come out. Finally, though, I have a fraught wait for Volume 6.
I hope anyone who is yet to read this book enjoys it as much as I did.
