The Waste Lands

The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, Book 3)The Waste Lands by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While this book isn't my absolute favorite of the Dark Tower series, it's pretty essential. It is here that Roland the Gunslinger's ka-tet is complete and the path to the Tower is joined in full.

It's a great bridge between the first books and later ones, as it brings full circle some of the initial plot-lines and sets the characters on a course for the new plot-lines.

In Book 1, we meet Roland and Jake. In Book 2, we meet Eddie and Susannah. Here in Book 3, they are joined by Oy and become more than casual acquaintances; they become ka-tet.

Oh, and Blaine is a pain, and that is the truth.
