The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass

In the fourth powerful novel in Stephen King's best-selling fantasy quest, the Dark Tower beckons Roland, the Last Gunslinger, and the four companions he has gathered along the road.

Publisher's Summary

In the fourth powerful novel in Stephen King's best-selling fantasy quest, the Dark Tower beckons Roland, the Last Gunslinger, and the four companions he has gathered along the road. And having narrowly escaped one world, they set out on a terrifying journey across the scarred urban wasteland to brave a new world, where hidden dangers lie at every junction: a malevolent computer-run monorail hurtling towards self-destruction, Roland's relentlessly cunning old enemy, and the temptation of the wizard's diabolical glass ball, a powerful force in Roland's first love affair.

A tale of long-ago love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman named Susan Delgado. And the Tower is closer.

    "Great read and a grand reader"

    This segment fills in a lot of blanks in Roland's back story. I didn't like everything that happened but the author sometimes can't control where the story takes him can he. In any event I have just ordered the next in the series and can't wait to get tucked into it.

    "My favourite of the series!"

    Loved the flash back of Roland's first love, at first I didn't want to leave the present and the main characters of the series, but then I didn't want to leave Hambry and come back. Frank Muller gets 5 stars for narration!

    "Everyone loves a flashback episode"

    I really enjoyed this book, it tells an excellent story from the formative years in Roland's past without truly revealing as much as it brings up new questions. We really get the 'western' feel from this story, which blends beautifully with the medieval upbringing of Roland's childhood and immediate future.

    "Expectedly brilliant"

    King is a gifted writer who builds great castles with a few bricks, but not everybody wants to meet the shadows in all his many tales. Those who do revel in his gift and are never disappointed.

    "Disappointing Detour"

    One good thing I can say is that the cliffhanger from the previous book was resolved.

    I have been enjoying this series very much and of course I wanted some information on the background. Especially the back stories that made the characters who and what they are. My disappointment arises because this book in the series has taken me away from the main story almost completely. Yes it fills in some gaps but much more than I needed. I am more interested in what is supposed to be happening now. It's like a novel inside a novel that I wasn't expecting to read and didn't really want to.

    It's not a 100% bad story but compared to the excitement, suspense, character development and plot building of other books so far in the series it's fairly boring. I even felt that the characters were bored. Teenage love story ends in tragedy - well we already knew this from reading the first three books in the series so no surprises there.

    Frank Muller - brilliant as usual.
