Wizard and Glass
Wizard and Glass | Stephen King
The fourth volume in the brilliant Dark Tower Series is “splendidly tense…rip-roaring” (Publishers Weekly)—a #1 national bestseller about an epic quest to save the universe.In Wizard and Glass, Stephen King is “at his most ebullient…sweeping readers up in…swells of passion” (Publishers Weekly) as Roland the Gunslinger, Eddie, Susannah, and Jake survive Blaine the Mono’s final crash, only to find themselves stranded in an alternate version of Topeka, Kansas, that has been ravaged by the superflu virus. While following the deserted I-70 toward a distant glass palace, Roland recounts his tragic story about a seaside town called Hambry, where he fell in love with a girl named Susan Delgado, and where he and his old tet-mates Alain and Cuthbert battled the forces of John Farson, the harrier who—with a little help from a seeing sphere called Maerlyn’s Grapefruit—ignited Mid-World’s final war. Filled with “blazing action” (Booklist), the fourth installment in the Dark Tower Series “whets the appetite for more” (Bangor Daily News). Wizard and Glass is a thrilling read from “the reigning King of American popular literature” (Los Angeles Daily News).

☀️ My goal is to complete 3 reading challenges this summer. Yesterday I pulled all the books I have on hand that I could use off my shelf and made my stack. Last summer I read 11 books so we‘ll see how close I get!
🔮 I‘m reading Stephen King first for a trip to Maine this week. What should I read next after that?

I wasn't a huge fan of this book. Although I know it's important to read for the rest of the story. I'm glad to know his back story but it was so long and it dragged. On to the next one.

Well, I FINALLY finished Wizard and Glass! Such a good story. I had completely forgotten the Wizard of Oz shout out at the end.

I ceased to be objective about this series somewhere near the end of the second book. I am invested in these people, damn it, and I just want to know what happens to them. So I was frustrated when we left them and moved to a world without them. But then I met Cuthbert and Sheemie and Alain and, yes, even Susan. Even my annoyance with teenage love stories couldn‘t ruin the book - this is necessary to our understanding of Roland. Cont‘d in comments.

Krisjericho And while the tendrils attaching this to the Wizard of Oz were a bit thin in places, where it worked, it really worked. Also, Frank Muller was born to narrate these books. 6mo
LazyDays I felt almost the same way! It took my 3 months to get through Rolands amd Susans "loooooove" ? 6mo

Work finally slowed down enough that I have a little reading time again! I finally finished Wizard and Glass this morning for the #epickatetread and it was fantastic. My favorite Dark Tower volume so far. The glimpse into Roland's past was great, and I love how King ties everything together in his universe. This is one of the better westerns that I have read. Now to finish the other two books that I started weeks ago!

MinDea Yay! I am so glad work has slowed down for you! This one is one of my favorites of the series too. 7mo

Book 4 of the Dark Tower is where we get to see young Roland's journey from innocence to the ruthless, jaded gunslinger he is destined to be. What a tragic hero, and my heart ached for him so much in this book. My favorite in the series! Thankee-sai, we were well met, Roland.

BookwormAHN I really enjoyed the backstory. The ending is insane 😸 7mo
LazyDays This was a really slow slow for me. I loved seeing into Rolands past, but I feel as if King kind of dragged this book out a little bit. Poor Susan💔 They are just kids trying to make extreme choices. 7mo
EadieB I was glad to read about Roland‘s backstory. It seemed to round out his character more. 7mo
MinDea @TK421 Yay! Glad you are getting time to read again! 7mo
MinDea @LazyDays I remember feeling that way basically in all these books especially the next 3. I just felt like they dragged a d I had a ahrd time with them. I love King but he can be so worry at times. 7mo
MinDea @EadieB I totally agree! I feel this book really helped you understand Roland. 7mo
Jovy I love young Roland, when his mind wasn‘t yet consumed with the Dark Tower. Also love his original ka-tet. Cuthbert‘s scene with Roland was one of my faves! 7mo

I‘ve now finished book 4 in this series and have to say this is quite a unique series. Couldn‘t say I‘m loving it but at the same time couldn‘t say I‘m not enjoying it. So much in these books that I think you‘d need to read them a few times to pick it all up. Some parts of the books are great and am loving them, but then other parts are more pedestrian. Certainly a big story that overall I‘m enjoying reading with #EpicKatetBuddyRead Onto Book 5!

jb72 I‘ve read the first three books and I‘m really liking the story. The gunslinger is an interesting fellow. 8mo
Andrew65 @jb72 He is at that, and so are the other central characters, especially Jake. Book 4 is a strong addition to the series, enjoy it when you get to it. (edited) 8mo

I finished Wizard and Glass. I loved it. It is mostly the tragic backstory of Roland and Susan but also has elements from The Stand and The Wizard of Oz in it.
It was definitely a ⭐⭐⭐⭐ read.

#EpicKatet wow this book blew me away I never thought I would be giving an SK book 5⭐️ but this deserves nothing less.

I loved the sections where we travel back in time and learn Roland‘s backstory and the story of his original KaTet it was also fascinating to see where his obsession with the tower originated.

Due to foreshadowing you know bad things will happen in this book and the suspense really builds. I still hoped I was wrong but 😱😭😭

MinDea So unless elievablt excited that you 5 started this book!!! I love this one too. I think you'll also really enjoy 8mo
MinDea And njcley done for finishing it early! 👏 I'm way behind! 8mo

MinDea @TK421 Blaine is such a good character. I loved how just crazy he was. He was probably case book psychotic! He had no real rhyme or reason why a train would behave that way yet his backstory made it completely plausible and made sense in the end! 🤯 So good! 8mo

I needed to bail on this one. This week was a really difficult one and this book made me avoid reading, one of the most important things in my life. Sorry I‘m not in the KaTet but I have other callings. I do so enjoy @MinDea ‘s presence here in Listyland so this book has given me that and for some reason, has shown me how much I love the movie Labyrinth. I wish I liked this book better, the premise is super interesting.

#24B4Monday time again! I‘m working this weekend but I‘m gonna read when I can. I‘m struggling hard with the tagged book. I might not continue this series after this book. I‘m not moved by King‘s writing and often his choices take me out of the story if not vex me. I think a lot of his concepts are interesting. I guess I‘m not part of the Ka. @TheReadingMermaid @MinDea

the_hibernator I'm not a fan of King either. His style keeps me from getting engrossed in the story. And he's too wordy. 9mo
jmofo @the_hibernator I write and try to learn from every book I read, especially if I don‘t enjoy it. And I love wordiness but his word choices vex me and interrupt my reading. Some things take so long, my blood pressure is going up. I love other ponderous wordy types. King doesn‘t often write characters I feel, and his writerly choices just don‘t make sense to me; his characters and voice feel limited by his experience. 🙄 9mo
MinDea No worries @jmofo! I totally understand! 9mo
the_hibernator @jmofo yes, I agree entirely about his word choices. They can be distracting. He tries too hard not to trite and instead it sounds forced. 9mo

jmofo @MinDea I‘m completely bailed. Turns out I‘m not of the KaTet. I am generally more forgiving of myself when I bail than I have been with this book. You can keep tagging me as I am interested in what makes these books so special to folks. Thanks! 💀 8mo
MinDea @jmofo 😆😆 No problem! I totally understand. 8mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm friggen loving these books all over again and it just makes me so very, very, happy! 🙃 8mo

1. The falconry show at the Ohio Renaissance Festival. They did falconry displays with a Lanner Falcon, Barn Owl, and a Finnish Goshawk. It was really cool! I've always loved birds of prey.
2. Collective Soul. They are still great live!
3. Procrastinating. It has taken me all day to do this.
4. Master Chef, The Office, football when I can, just finished American Gods season 1.
5. I just started Wizard and Glass.

I'm really enjoying The Dark Tower so far. Roland's ka-tet continues it's journey towards the dark tower. Can they come up with enough riddles to survive? I am excited to see what happens in this volume. #epickatetbuddyread

Roommate heated up some soup because I‘m feeling poorly. I thought this would be a great day to pick up Wizard and Glass. I‘m so out of it, I can‘t tell if the audiobook has been playing for twenty minutes or two hours. How long do the riddles go on?

I go back to the room I read in, where I sink down into my sofa and into the world of Mejis. Slowly, the real world evaporates. I'm alone (with my tea of course) inside the world of the story. 📖🔖🏔🌲

My favourite feeling in the world. ❤

Quick question for everyone reading #TheDarkTower. Our final discussion for #TheWasteLands is in a couple weeks (9/16). Would you guys like a break and start in October or jump right in to the next book #WizardAndGlass?

I remember this being my favourite the first time through and this reread confirms it absolutely. The story telling, characterisations, pacing, suspense and descriptions are telling of why King is so good at what he does.

This isn‘t high writing, this is writing for the masses but that is not a bad thing. Thoroughly enjoyed this book again and now my only concern is that I know the other books don‘t back it up.

The story was good, but I wanted to continue reading about the adventures of Eddie, Jake etc. Now I feel like I need a break from this series and read something else before jumping into the 5th one.

When you lie to yourself and say you‘re gonna take a break from this series of chunksters but pick up the next book immediately 🙄
