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....

Exciting but somehow optional
Couldn't finish the book for 5 years, it seemed just too boring, but when the characters came alive with Muller's different voices I couldn't stop listening. It's slow to start and largely disconnected with the previous books as it is "just" Roland's backstory. But it picks up the pace near the end and although the book then makes clear where it's heading you want to hear it all and find out for yourself.
Just 4 stars for the story, because it seemed King only wrote Wizard and Glass, because he didn't know how to continue the Ka-Tet's journey. A thrilling tale nonetheless, but, honestly, I think you can skip it and not miss much of Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy's story.

Bereits so ist der vierte Band der Dunklen Turm Saga der beste Teil der Reihe. Rolands Rückblende ist das brillianteste was ich je gelesen habe. Frank Muller schafft es das Erlebnis noch um eine Nuance zu erweitern. Er erweckt die Figuren zu leben, was zu einer einzigartigen Atmosphäre führt.
