The Waste Lands by Stephen King – The Dark Tower #3 (EPUB)
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.
This volume of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower brings all of the characters together. We learn about their histories, how they link to each other in their previous lives in ‘our world’ and what their role is as they join Roland on the quest for the Dark Tower. Each member of the group is finding out more about themselves too and the skills they can bring. The journey moves along at a faster pace towards the end of the book and yet more characters are introduced. The world has taken on a post-apocalyptic feel and ends again with yet more questions to be answered.
The Waste Lands
The Waste Lands is probably my favorite Dark Tower book and epitomizes what I like about the series. It’s got the lost technology, lots of action, more bits about Roland’s world, and makes Roland’s ka-tet complete. The story of Jake in New York was well done. Can’t wait to know what’s going to happen next. This series is really starting to become my favorite series of all time.
