Re: Ending of the Dark Tower Series
It got so sad toward the end. I think the time leading up to and the event of Susannah's departure was the saddest bit of reading I've ever done.
Yes, Flagg's death was exceptionally weak. Also the Tick-Tock man's. I was hoping the other pieces of the wizard's rainbow might play a role in the later books. Flagg was my favorite of The Man in Black's identities and he died too easily. He should have been the one at the tower, not the CK.
The CK's death was just as bad. Whenever I started to realize that he was going to simply be erased, I was like "NOOOOO!!!!" and it happened. Should have been a major confrontation. I did like the screaming, though. EEEEEEE! Brutal.
And the tower was disappointing, too. I don't know what it should have been. The regathering of the ka-tet was also unsatisfying. They're too different. It's not the same people.
I think some of you are over-interpreting the series. Randall Flagg is the tower? What? I doubt there is really much to be found below the surface.
Nonetheless, it was a good series. I read them all in a little less than a year. There wil be something missing from my life for a while now. I'm definitely going to lose sleep over the ending tonight.
