The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands by Stephen King
Book Review


This was a pretty incredible book. If you liked the second one in the series you'll enjoy this one. That said I had my reasons for rating it as I did (3/5 stars). If the ending hadn't been... what it was I would have given this book a 4/5 stars. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, but this book is just nuts. I think it's him letting his imagination run full tilt and just seeing what happens. Lucky for us King is a bit of a genius so a lot of great story happens. I really liked this book, but I did find the middle pretty slow and drawn out. Also, there is a part of one scene I really didn't care for in this book. I found it disgusting unnecessary. 

I'm trying not to spoil anything but my favorite characters in this book were Jake and Oy. While I like Roland a lot now, Eddie and Susannah were getting a little old. I like them more with Jake around and the way they interact with Jake. Oy the billy-bumbler is awesome. That said it's also been cool to see the character growth in Eddie and Susannah in this book. Thanks to the ending I have no choice but to immediately start the fourth book in this series. Sheesh!
