How do you review a book you don't want to reveal anything about? A book you are scared to death that you will ruin for anyone who hasn't read it yet? Well, I'm going to give it a try.

The book I'm talking about is off course King's last part in The Dark Tower series, entitled The Dark Tower. Never have there been so much fear of reading spoilers for a King book before it's release then now. And I understand why. After all, I didn't want to know anything before I read it. This is the end of a tale that has been in the making for over 30 years…

In The Dark Tower we get the conclusion of Roland's journey for The Dark Tower. Does he reach it? Does the ones who travels with him reach it and if so, do all of them reach it? The questions before reading this book is numerous and I'm happy to say that most of them gets straighten out.

In this book there are almost more action then in the first six together. This book has everything. There is fighting, there are old friends and enemies as well as new. Good things happens and bad things certainly happens. And off course, you got the ending of the tale!

As I said, this is where The Dark Tower saga ends. This is the last book in the series and my guess is that the ending will be discussed as well as argued between the fans for quite some time. Not that it should come as a surprise to anyone. No matter what ending King would have written there would have been people who liked it and those who didn't. Personally I love it. The Dark Tower saga couldn't have ended in a better way. That is about all I dare say about it.

So, this is about all I'm going to say about the book. If you haven't read the fist six parts you should go out and get them ASAP. If you have read them…your ready for the last one, the ending.

Lilja's final words about The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower:

This is one of King's best books to date. Off course you'll need to have read the first six books to appreciate it but if you have, you are going to just love it. If you haven't you should go out this instance and get all seven parts!

Someone told me that the best way to review this book was to simply say GO OUT AND READ THIS BOOK!! so that is what I'm going to do…GO OUT AND READ THIS BOOK!!.
