The Waste Lands

The Waste Lands

I liked the previous book better, but this is still a great continuation.

Goodreads blurb:
"Roland, The Last Gunslinger, moves ever closer to The Dark Tower of his dreams and nightmares—as he crosses a desert of damnation in a macabre world that is a twisted image of our own. With him are those he has drawn to this world: street-smart Eddie Dean and courageous wheelchair-bound Susannah.

Ahead of him are mind-rending revelations about who and what is driving him. Against him is arrayed a swelling legion of foes—both more and less than human...."
I felt that this one was a bit too long for my liking. I was getting restless and couldn't really wait to be done... not that the book was boring; the plot is actually pretty exciting. It just felt drawn out.
I love the way King is able to connect the most meaningless things. Everything is related in this story. I'm glad Jake is back, and I love Oy! I love the idea of ka and the ka-tet. There were a few scenes that were really disturbing, and I feel like I always seem to be reading those parts when I'm trying to eat and lose my appetite. The beam and its Guardians seem really interesting. Overall, pretty good.
