    B 74% | More than Satisfactory Notes Skirting back story and mythology it focuses too much on cliché genre retreads to be thought of as a serious fantasy

    This book contains the biggest lie a writer ever told me It‘s in the Author‘s Note at the end The fourth volume in the tale of the Dark Tower should appear always assuming the continuation of Constant Writer’s life and Constant Reader’s interest in the not too distant futureIt took six years for the next book to come out Six Goddamn YearsSix years may not seem too bad to fans of authors who only release a book every decade or so but there’s a couple of factors that made this false statement particularly bitter The Waste Lands ends on a nail biting cliffhanger I literally yelled aloud in frustration the first time I read this back in 1991 and realized that I’d have to wait for the next book to learn the fate of Roland and his friends Still after some reflection it didn’t seem that bad The next volume would appear ‘in the not too distant future’ right? Besides this was Stephen King the writer who churned out 1000 page books like McDonald’s makes Big Macs No big deal I’d be reading it by ‘92 1993 at the latestFive goddamn years later and I’d gone from Stephen King and Dark Tower fan to the kind of crazed fury usually reserved for jilted lovers It didn’t help that King was cranking out big fat books including some utter shit like Insomnia and Rose Madder Yet no fourth Dark Tower book and every now and then I’d reread the first three volumes and dream of the day when I’d finally learn what happened nextThe odd thing is that it still kind of pisses me off even now that the series is finished I get that same sense of frustration when I read this remembering the six goddamn years between books while seeing all kinds of other King novels come out It’s too bad because this was my favorite of the first three books until frustration turned it into an irritating loose endAnd I’ll confess something that makes me a small petty person Deep down in my shriveled black soul I’m resentful and jealous of anyone who reads the series now or who started reading it when the last three books were coming out like clockwork at the end They didn’t suffer like the ones who read this and waited six years Then read the fourth one and waited SIX MORE GODDAMN YEARS FOR THE FIFTH ONE YEAH THAT’S RIGHT BETWEEN 1991 AND 2003 STEPHEN FUCKING KING ONE OF THE MOST PROFILIC WRITERS I’VE EVER READ MANAGED TO WRITE JUST ONE GODDAMN DARK TOWER BOOK AND IF THAT MINIVAN HADN’T VERY NEARLY KILLED HIS PROCRASTINATING ASS I’D PROBABLY STILL BE WAITING ahem Excuse me I’ve still got a few unresolved issues with old Steve about this seriesAnd what about the story in this book? Roland is training Eddie and Susannah to be gunslingers but he’s going crazy from a paradox he created in the last book by time hopping to our world and changing an event that altered his own timeline They also find a creepy old decayed city filled with a murderous mob and have to deal with a monorail that is criminally insaneIt’s terrific but I think the waiting drove me a little mad And now King has been making noises about possibly doing another book that would fill some of the SIX GODDAMN YEAR GAP between 4 and 5 You’ll pardon me if I don’t hold my breath

    English The Waste Lands ItalianoHappiness while watching the drawing of the metal plate found on the just killed bear happiness that I feel for the unpredictable and the inexplicable My personal journey into the world of The Dark Tower goes on together with the gunslinger Roland escorted by Eddie and Susannah the two tale gunners recruited in the previous chapter The Drawing of the Three However there is still somebody to recruit for the company to be completeIn the author's note at the end of the book King predicts that some readers will probably be disappointed by the unanswered questions that this novel leaves But actually the philosophy of unanswered questions was the winning strategy of a lot of narrative or television series such as the famous TV show LOST which I loved and I'm going to go out on a limb here expecting that it will be the winning strategy of The Dark Tower tooAlright cut the chatter As Blaine the mono says let the contest beginVote 75Felicità mentre osservo il disegno della targa metallica rinvenuta sull'orso appena ucciso felicità di LOSTiana memoria che provo per l'ignoto e l'inspiegabile Continua il mio viaggio personale nel mondo de La Torre Nera e continua il cammino di Roland accompagnato da Eddie e Susannah i due compagni di ventura reclutati nel precedente capitolo La chiamata dei tre Tuttavia manca ancora qualcuno da reclutare affinchè la compagnia possa dirsi completaNella nota dell'autore a fine libro King prevede che probabilmente alcuni lettori saranno delusi dal fatto che Terre Desolate lascia tanti quesiti irrisolti Beh quella dei quesiti irrisolti è stata la filosofia vincente di tante serie narrative o televisive come la serie cult LOST della quale sono stato un fan sfegatato e mi sbilancio con ottimismo prevedendo che sarà la filosofia vincente anche de La Torre NeraOkay bando alle ciance E come direbbe Blaine il Monoche abbia inizio la garaVoto 75

    Rolands´ DIY tutorials worsening causality problems time paradoxes and the first real longer encounters with paranormal activities and monsters let one dive deeper into the marvelous madnessJust as in the second part The drawing of the three King is using some elements of the real alternative world although the main parts play in fantasy terror land where the lovely hero´s journey of mentally ill severely injured and mutilated and fresh cold turkeyed protagonists can continueThis one is similar to the first part of the series a good oldfashioned tour de force while the second and fourth part are personal character focused works with fewer settings and action I don´t know if King intended to switch the narrative styles between the parts or if it was a coincidence but slowing down for a novel between to focus on character development to accelerate in the next book seems reasonable although it sparked debates of fans about the uncertainty what the next part may bring Depending on what style one prefers the agreeableness can vary a bit of fandom frenzy included view spoilerThe huge cyborg beast Shardik hide spoiler

    In short The Waste Lands blew my mind The incorporation of the riddles and the story of Blaine the Mono I mean who comes up with this stuff?The King that's who Stephen Freaking KingWhat can I say besides the fact that I loved this with my whole heart and soul?As you know if you are reading this this is the third book in King's epic Dark Tower series This book knocked The Drawing of Three out of the top spot for me It was that good As the series continues to build it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the complexity of it all Even with this in mind however it's such an enjoyable story it just seems to workMost compelling for me was the resurgence of my favorite character of the series My boy returning just made me so so happy There is really nothing else I can say about this that would be any creative or insightful than what countless others have no doubt written in their reviews For me one thing I always think when reading a book from this series is how absolutely EPIC it is The detail the atmosphere the artfully drawn characters it is truly astounding to me that all of this ALL OF THIS came out of one man's brain I have already started the fourth book in the series and it is equally amazing although the pace is a little different thus far I look forward to seeing this series out to its conclusion

    After the events of the Drawing of the Three Roland the Gunslinger has two people from our world along side him in his quest for the Dark Tower However he's also going mad because of a strange double set of memories in his head memories of a boy he crossed the desert withThe 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 bits about Roland's world and makes Roland's ka tet complete The story of Jake in New York was well done I even liked Oy the Billy Bumbler All the stuff that goes down in Lud had me dying to read the next book in the series The ending would have made me furious had I been reading the Dark Tower books as they were publishedNotes from the 2011 re readThe Waste Lands drives home the notion that Roland's world is coming apart at the seams It also gives us hints about what Roland was like before the world moved on hints that will be further explored in Wizard and GlassEven though I knew the whole deal with the key this being my fifth or sixth read it was still a tense moment when the key didn't turn and the creature was loose in the haunted mansion in New York I felt a single man tear threaten to roll down my cheek when view spoilerRoland and Jake hide spoiler

    “Ka was like a wheel its one purpose to turn and in the end it always came back to the place where it had started”The third book in the Dark Tower series finds Roland and his ka tet following the Path of the Beam towards the tower Along the way they’ll pick up two new membersI was contemplating writing this review as an Ode to Oy but words can’t even express how much I love that little billy bumbler he is the CUTEST A particular highlight for me is when he calls Gasher “asshole” SASSY OYI also have a revelation that may shake you all to your cores having previously ranted and raved about how Blaine did my head in I actually LIKED Blaine the Mono this time around Now the riddles I can still do without but I found Blaine to be highly entertaining Memory is a funny thing isn’t it? He was completely different in my headThe house on Dutch Hill how STRESSFUL is that part the bleakness of Lud the people in River Crossing that huge freakin’ bear MEETING OY this book has so much fucking awesomeness packed into it that I don’t know where to begin and I can’t fit it all in here in detail so I’ll just say it was INCREDIBLEThis reread is completely challenging all my prior thoughts and feelings on certain books in the series Now I would rank The Waste Lands as the best in the series so far whereas before it was down near the bottom for me but still excellent I do love all the books This one has gained an entire star following my rereadI honestly hate reviewing these books because it’s just word vomit I JUST LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH 5 glittering shiny stars

    45I almost almost gave 5 stars to this one I consider this volume to be the best out of the three that I’ve read so far If the book had stopped midway it would have got the maximum recognition from me no doubt I love and hate King’s way of writing too much He managed to keep me at the edge of my seat for 100 pages hungry for promising my undying love and then after the climax the forth drawing he slightly bores me for the next 100 Maybe the plot got too intense and he thought we needed a cool down but still my serotonin levels dropped too much The best part of the novel for me was the drawing of the 4th member of the Ka tet after an adrenaline pumping sequence of evince in both worlds I was enthralled by the changing of perspective from one world to another The tension of those moments was King at his best Even breathing was a nuisance as I feverishly turned page after page in order to see what happens next The Waste Lands is the first in the series to finish with a cliffhanger but I won’t be rushing to start the next one as I do not want to overdose on King and lose interest
