Overview

Wizard and Glass (Dark Tower Series #4) by Stephen King, Frank Muller

Beginning with a short story appearing in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1978, the publication of Stephen King's epic work of fantasy -- what he considers to be a single long novel and his magnum opus -- has spanned a quarter of a century.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement.

I felt such loss after reading this, it was tangible. Never have i been brought so close to fictional characters. The development of Roland in this portion of his tale is exceptional. This volume is the hook, if you werent hooked already.

Builds to a crescendo that leaves you begging for more. The story of Roland's youth is fantastic and hard to put down. Easily the best book so far!

The first 2/3 of the book seems to be very slow moving, and were difficult to maintain interest in. However, the last third picks up the pace and keeps your attention well. Fills in a lot of the back story missing in the first 3 installments.

I love this series and have read it several times. Its like revisiting old and dear friends. But the story of Rolands first love is my favorite. It explains so much about his character. Enjoy!

Painfully good; bittersweet. Of the first four, this has been the best. My heart hurts but I must read the next immediately!

Wizard and Glass is quite a long book, and for most of the beginning, is kind've slow. We find our ka-tet in a parallel world where the presidents on the dollar bill change with each dimension they're in. Sports teams end up in different cities, soda brands are changed, etc. We find a witch that isn't all she seems to be at first and we discover that all things serve the Beam as they follow it onward toward the Dark Tower.

This is my favorite of the Dark Towers series. Just hope Roland gets it right somewhere on the path and can live his "Happily ever after" with Susan.

We're off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz or maybe that would be Flagg---wait just a minute, what is Flagg doing in Oz? I have never been much of a Stephan King fan but I Loved this book and the 3 before it, can't wait to read Number 5.

Are you even allowed to use that phrase anymore? It definitely applies to this chapter of the tower. I have found myself preparing to read it for the second time, eager to meet Susan again for the first time, and follow her and Roland down the bittersweet path that Ka has laid out for them. This novel is framed by the journey to the tower with Roland's current ka-tet, and offers vast insight into the mind behind those bombardier's eyes. These passages will give you a brand new vision...and if you were considering stopping after The Wastelands, I suggest giving this book a chance. It is worth it.

I give this 5 stars. The back-story of Roland, Susan, Cuthbert, and Alian was extremely well written. I could not put the book down. It's a long book, but a fast read. Great background of Roland's life and what drives him.

In my opinion (this is an opinion, don't hate me) of the entire series this was the worst. I honostly couldn't read it for more than maybe 10 minutes at a time. I read through all the other books in the series within a week apiece this one took me months. The story is fantastically bland and has very little to do with the rest of the series. It feels like poor Steve ran out of steam and had no idea how to follow up the third book (my favorite). After this one the series picked up dramatically however. And really, this is the honest truth, you could read the first and last 20 pages of this book and not miss a single plot point relevant to the rest of the series. So just take half an hour to sit in the bookstore instead of buying it and you'll be all set.

If you are now or have ever been an avid reader of 'Stephen King' you have to agree with me when I say that after 'The Agonizing Wait' there is no excuse for this disaster. I have been reading Stephen King since I was twelve, 'Thanks to my mother' and I have loved everything he has ever written, especially as Richard Bachman. My mother is a King finatic, and after she read me Mrs. Todd's Shortcuts, I have made a point of reading everything that he has ever written. I am affraid of what he is going to do with the next 'Tower'. Justin Swartz.

This is my sixth time reading the Dark Tower series, and I find Wizard and Glass to be the one book that draws me in more than any other. It is just a great book to get lost in.
