Roland the Gunfighter and his two companions continue the quest for the tower at the portal of all the worlds...in this third volume in the epic that continues to dominate the bestseller lists.
The Waste Lands continues the ka-tet's journey toward The Dark Tower. Roland is going a little crazy (as am I the reader) trying to mentally handle the conflicting events between book 1 and book 2. The mental instability does draw to a close (for all of us involved), however, and our quest continues through Mid-World.
This was not a remarkable book, in my opinion, but a satisfying read in my own journey toward The Dark Tower. I'm still quite invested in these characters, and this book brings about a wonderous addition to the ka-tet in the form of an intelligent doglike "billy-bumbler" named Oy.
The Waste Lands does end on a cliffhanger, so I would recommend having The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass in a short queue.
Let me hear your thoughts on The Waste Lands and The Dark Tower!
