Re: Ending of the Dark Tower Series
so WOW just finished the DT a few days ago and to be honest I absolutely loved just about every second of it, and yes I thought the ending was awesome.
I have read through this entire thread and while I do like the ending I can see why some people have gripes, but overall I do agree that there really would not have been a better suited ending, one that was so hopeless yet still left a sliver of hope.
Never have I been left so emotionally attached to characters in my whole life be it reading or something seen on tv. I almost feel a hole left in my chest as this point that the story is over.
Very much looking forward to the next book as I am sure most of you are also, which got me thinking.
Supposidely the book is just kind of a filler story between books 4-5, something about some terrible storm and Jamie DeCurry. And to be honest at first I was not quite as excited when I found out the book was a filler and not a continuation of the end.........Or is it?
Nothing would make me happier than if King started off the first sentence to this book with a line like this (keep in mind I am not a writer lol but you will get the point).
"The gunslinger reaches into his gunna and can feel the ancient power held within the horn of eld"
For me I would be jumping out of my seat. Does this make any sense to you guys/girls, and would you all be just as excited as I? And do you think King will take it there?
ON his website when commenting about the book he says "Its not going to change anybodys life but God I had fun".......hmmmmm is this King being sneaky trying to temper expectations just to give us all whatt we want afterall, to find out more about what should be Rolands last trip to the Tower?
