The Third Volume in the Epic Dark Tower Series…
The Waste Lands

In 1978, Stephen King introduced the world to the last gunslinger, Roland of Gilead.  Nothing has been the same since. More than twenty years later, the quest for the Dark Tower continues to take readers on a wildly epic ride. Through parallel worlds and across time, Roland must brave desolate wastelands and endless deserts, drifting into the unimaginable and the familiar. A classic tale of colossal scope—crossing over terrain from The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, Insomnia, The Talisman, Black House, Hearts in Atlantis, ’Salem’s Lot, and other familiar King haunts—the adventure takes hold with the turn of each page.

And the tower awaits....

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....

good book

I like the whole dark-tower series, and this book is good. However, in my ebook-version there is a whole passage missing of about 50 pages or so. (the meeting with tiktak and blaine). This is really annoying as this is quite an important passage.

Great read, very well written, it's really easy to get lost in the story, very different from King's usual style, this is more of a fantasy story, if you have read the Talisman he co-wrote with Peter Straub, you will love this series.

Great, but has issues.

I'm not a book reviewer by any means, so I will be brief. I loved The Waste Lands the first time I read it, but this edition is absolutely littered with spelling, grammar, and formatting errors. It's actually quite jarring. If that bothers you, then you may want to read the paperback edition instead.
