Things are definitely coming to a head in King's penultimate installment of the Dark Tower series - and they're getting weirder. I can see why some readers don't like the latter half of the Dark Tower series, thinking that it goes off the rails.... but I actually really like the whole "meta" nature of this part of the story, although it was weird meeting the author. Looking forward to the last chapter.read more

CAUTION: SPOILERSAt the end of Wolves of the Calla (DT 5), Susannah/Mia slips away to New York to have her "chap." In Song of Susannah, we follow her to a place in mid-world called Fedic where she delivers the kid. The Manni from Calla Bryn Sturgis send the Gunslinger, Eddie, Jake, Oy, and Father Callahan back to this world via todash, but they end up in different wheres and whens--Jake, Oy, and Callahan in New York City in Susannah's when, and the Gunslinger and Eddie in Maine, where they eventually have an encounter with Stephen King himself. Not my favorite in the series thus far, but still good. In an interesting twist, King writes himself into the story at the end of this one.read more

The only good thing about this story was the little rhymes King added at the end of each chapter. Otherwise... way too many convenience moments. And the whole "climatic arc" of this book: the child... well. See my commentary for Book 7. This book and its storyline seemed like filler.read more

Not at all my favorite in the series. In fact, even below Wizard and Glass, which I wasn't fond of at all. It had to be read for completeness, though, and has some interesting moments. Not enough to rescue it from the conceit of author as character.

Book VI in the Dark Tower series, Song of Susannah is as complicated and compelling as the other five books. If you haven't read the others in the series, this one won't make much sense. You reallly need to start at the beginning. This book really sets things up for the grand finale coming out this fall.

(#23 in the 2004 book challenge) This is the penultimate book in the Dark Tower saga, and things are really starting to heat up. This was a real page turner, although it feels mostly like a lead in to the upcoming, final DT book. It wasn't quite as good, I think, as Wolves of the Calla, it reads more like a bridge book. There are some things I feel very, very nervous about as we head into the conclusion of the Dark Tower quest, and I'm warning people now that if certain bad things happen to certain characters, I might have to take to my bed for a week. I feel like I can't say much else without spoilers, as I know some people are probably planning to pick this up.Grade: A-Recommended: If you've read this far in the series, I doubt you'd stop now.
