Wolves of the Calla
Wolves of the Calla | Stephen King
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, the DARK TOWER series is unlike anything you have ever read. Here is the fifth installment, "one of the strongest entries yet in what will surely be a master storyteller's magnum opus" ("Locus"). Roland Deschain and his "ka-tet" are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World on their quest for the Dark Tower. Their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis. But beyond the tranquil farm town, the ground rises to the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is stealing the town's soul. The wolves of Thunderclap and their unspeakable depredation are coming. To resist them is to risk all, but these are odds the gunslingers are used to. Their guns, however, will not be enough....

My #weeklyforecast
I'm taking a week off next week & my goal is to finish Dark Tower before I return to work. I have books 1-4 in a different edition & 5-8 in this edition (book 8 being Wind Through the Keyhole). If they ever release a set with good design AND no "now a major motion picture" I'd definitely buy it as I think it's going to end up as a new favorite series.
@Cinfhen

DrexEdit Agreed! I have had the hardest time finding books of the same design. I think a complete, coherent series must not yet exist! (edited) 3mo
vivastory @DrexEdit They issued a set when the shitty movie was released, & the art isn't too bad, but the stamp at the bottom ruins it for me. I've heard that Amazon might pick it up, & if they do I'm really hoping they reissue it without it 3mo
DrexEdit @vivastory yeah I'm not usually a fan of movie tie-in covers, or stickers, either. 3mo

Tea, homemade almond-raspberry scones, and a chunkster read: My Saturday morning is all booked. 😎📚

Kaye I‘ve never had a scone in my life. Would you say they have the consistency of a biscuit or a cookie ? And are they sweet or more bread flavored ? Do they have frosting in them ? They look really good. 10mo
Amiable @kaye These were made by my boss, who is an amazing baker. She won‘t share her secret recipe, so I don‘t exactly know how she makes them. But most scones I‘ve had are kind of hard and crunchy. These are soft and light, like a dough biscuit. And she puts homemade raspberry preserves inside as a layer. They are my favorite things that she makes! 10mo
Kaye They sound like Biting Into Heaven. 10mo

Amiable @kaye In an ideal world, my boss would quit her job (healthcare marketing communications) and open her own bakery. But she‘s not brave enough—yet—to take the leap into self-employment. So she indulges her passion for baking —and brings it all to us in the office! It‘s the best of all worlds—I get to eat wonderful home-bakes goodies...and I don‘t have to be the one to bake them! 😀 10mo
Kaye Yes you‘re lucky you get to sample all the items. It‘d probably be scary to take out a loan huge enough to open your own bake shop , unless you were independently wealthy or had a partner who made enough money ( and had insurance) to keep you floating. I used to like baking, but not anymore. Being a housewife for almost 42 years has cured me of that. 10mo
Amiable @kaye I‘ve been a wife for almost 28 years—and I never liked to cook or bake! My poor husband. 😀 10mo

It only took me three months to get through this tome 🤦🏼‍♀️ I enjoyed the second half of the novel but I really got lost in the first half. It was hard for me to pick up the book and read and I just felt like this whole side quest didn‘t further the plot a lot until the last fifty pages. This was still a good addition to the series though, and I can‘t wait to finish it! It‘s only taken me a year to get through book five at this point 😂

Liatrek Lol! I‘m in the same boat I started the series over a year ago and this is the one I‘m currently stuck on. I‘m half through but not actively reading it. I‘ll hopefully pick it up again soon. 12mo

Late post for the #EpicKatetRead. I loved this re-read more than the first time. Our katet grows individually as well as together. So much going on and although the story of the Calla folks is concluded, the tension remains. You can feel we‘re almost at the end of our journey!

Yay! I finally finished it! I think that this is my 2nd favorite of the series so far. I loved Callahan's back story. I now really want to read Salem's Lot. Jake really came into his own by the end. Eddie keeps getting more likeable, and Roland and Susannah are both full of surprises. I'm ready for The Song of Susannah now. This story keeps getting better.

KatieanneF A terrific series. I don‘t love Salem‘s lot but it has some really powerful passages and makes this 5th book more impactful, for sure. Enjoy!! 1y

shawncapito @KatieanneF I tried to read Salem's Lot after I read this book the first time, but i couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try it again soon so I can learn more about Callahan. He's one of my favorite characters in the series. 13mo

Finished Wolves of the Calla, which is book 5 in the Dark Tower Series. The epic journey continues & this is one of the best books in the series so far. A lot of action in this one and leaves off with quite a cliff hanger which makes you want to quickly move onto book 6. Loved the action in here talking about the assassination of Kennedy, & although this was written a few years before writing 11.22.63 you can see he had the idea to write the book.

Apologies in advance I am going to read ahead as I can‘t stop now. I will then be hitting Salem‘s Lot and Look Homeward Angel as companion reads.

BookwormM @Riveted_Reader_Melissa that would be amazing if you could find it 1y
MinDea @BookwormM there are so many and The Dark Tower series brings so many of his previous characters and world's together. They say this series is the Apex of all his world's. So you'll find a lot of other characters in here. I'll take a few of my favorite King books but jot necessarily connected to The Dark Tower. 1y

TK421 I hope to start this next week. I actually have a whole week off work!!!! I'm almost done with Wizard and Glass now, and I love it!👍 1y
Jovy I have not started either, planning for this weekend. Can‘t remember much about this book anymore 🤪 1y
TrishB Not started yet! Sorry. 1y
Andrew65 @MinDea @GrilledCheeseSamurai @TK421 @Jovy @TrishB Ditto, I‘ve not started it yet either. 1y
BookwormM I am up to date and resisting moving on looking forward to the weekend as that is when I start the next section 🤣🤣 1y
EadieB @MinDea I‘m finished this section. Love the part about the rose in the field in New York! 1y
MinDea @BookwormM & EadieB are the all stars in this group. The rest of us are all slackers. 😆😆😆 @Andrew65 @GrilledCheeseSamurai @TK421 @Jovy @TrishB (but TrishB is the kid in class that can wait til the last minute to do the hmwk and still do just fine 😆😆😆😆) 1y
TrishB Lol!! I have just been called the University‘s girlie swot in a meeting for the same reason 😁😁 1y
TK421 I'm kind of a slacker, but I'm much more of a procrastinator. I have a hard time finishing what I sta... 1y
MinDea @TK421 🤣🤣🤣🤣 1y
Andrew65 @TK421 👍😂😂😂🤪 1y
Andrew65 @MinDea Yep definitely slacking on this because got so many reading commitments on the go at the moment. Currently reading 6 books, aim to finish some off this weekend. 🤞 1y
MinDea @Andrew65 at least you're reading! You have a good excuse! Mine is just work getting in the way 😆😆 why do we have to work again?! 🤔😆 1y
Andrew65 @MinDea Work is also limiting my reading, and leaving me too little time to read due to tiredness as well. 1y
MinDea @Andrew65 Yes! 😴😴😴😴 I'm just so tired and can't keep my eyes open to read more than a a few pages! I hope life calms down for you soon! 1y
Andrew65 @MinDea And likewise. Don‘t think it will for me for the foreseeable future. 1y
TK421 I finally finished Wizard and Glass!!! 1y
MinDea @TK421 👏👏👏👏👏🎉 1y
Andrew65 Now finished the first section and ploughing on. (edited) 1y
Andrew65 @TK421 👏👏👏 1y

#EpicKaTet this book is 20 years old and Trump still managed to get a mention!!

Is there a way to create a group of people to tag? As I can never remember who is in our KaTet🤣🤣🤣 if I have tagged the wrong people forgive me xxx

PS I have finished this week‘s section desperately resisting moving on.

BookwormAHN I think his dislike of Trump has been rather epic 😸 1y
TrishB @BookwormAHN exactly! 1y
Andrew65 @BookwormAHN I think that can be said of quite a few where Trump is concerned. @TrishB (edited) 1y

#EpicKaTet diving into this chunkster now if I had know how big it was beforehand I would have got an ebook version as this will not be easy in my hands #ankylosingspondylitis

BookwormAHN I chose the audio book which is 26 hours 😺 1y
TrishB I have a full set but have brought them all again on kindle for exactly that reason! 1y
Andrew65 @BookwormAHN I‘m with you I used credits to buy them as audiobooks. 1y
MinDea @BookwormM I think I have an ebook copy of this if you're interested. I can send it to you. 1y
BookwormM @Mindea that would be great 👍 but I am in the UK does that still work 1y

#EpicKaTetRead-ers! I decided to continue on the journey with Roland and his new ka-tet. I felt that if we went into A Wind Through the Keyhole we would be spending another couple of months without them and I felt that might be too long. I hope everyone is OK with this. If you'd prefer to read AWTtK next feel free! It really can be read at any time during this series and you can always catch up in the buddy read!

Andrew65 Sounds like a good plan 👏 Thanks for this @MinDea 1y
EadieB I‘m happy with that too! @MinDea (edited) 1y

MinDea I'm glad @EadieB. It seemed a mix between waht to read next so I made an executive decision. I hope everyone is happy with moving forward. 🤞 1y
MinDea I don't remember Wolves of the Calla at all so I am super excited to read it again. I think I set it down for months when I first read it because I struggled with it. I hope that doesn't happen again this time 1y

MinDea @TK421 hope life slows down for you guys and you can get back to reading! 1y
TK421 @MinDea me too. Over the last 5 weeks I've been averaging around 70 hrs. I'm ready for harvest to be done. It should slow down soon, and I can get to several books that I would love to be able to read. 1y
MinDea Oh man @TK421. 70 hours a week! 😱 Brutal. 1y
BookwormM Super excited can‘t wait to dive back into mid world 1y

Awesome installment in the series! We have lots of action, western gunslingers, robots, vampires, time travel, a priest from ‘Salem‘s Lot, and a Crimson King! What more do you need? The ka-tet is back in business!

1. Work, work, and more work! 😡
2. The Dark Tower series is awesome! I‘m taking my time to make it last.
3. How to choose just one? Can I say vegetables and have it count as one entry? 😜
4. Nope! I was a book nerd to the bone!!
Have a wonderful three day weekend, Littens!! ❤️

1. Didn‘t have a tv, so didn‘t have one.
2. I‘m on the Keto diet right now, so I would scarf either down with equal relish and complete abandonment of all pretensions to ladylike decorum! 🤤
3. Same as always—classic rock
4. Also Zone One and Les Miserables
5. Will do! And Happy Friday, Littens!!

KathyWheeler Wolves is my favorite Dark Tower book. 2y

These are the books that I HOPE to read in August—as to whether that will happen is another story. Unfortunately, school is about to start back up, so more attention will go there. 😭

Libby1 Wow. Ambitious! Good luck. 😊 2y
Aims42 I‘ve read ‘Confederacy of Dunces‘ and ‘Illuminae‘ from your stack. Loved them both!!! Happy reading 🤓 (edited) 2y

Now time to finish book five of The Dark Tower series before this month‘s #indiebuddyreads book Circe. 😊

Redheadrambles @Neale yes I need to get back into these as well. 2y
Neale This fifth book is really good. It has shades of The Magnificent Seven ( or The Seven Samurai) about it. Mind you I have only read the first four chapters. 😊 2y
Redheadrambles I am up to No. 3 - I really enjoyed No. 2 2y
Neale I am finding they get better as they progress. 😊 2y

Bailedbailed

MAJOR BAIL ALERT:

I am officially bailing from the Dark Tower series, with nearly 5 of 7 books finished and thousands of pages read.

I just can‘t take it anymore. Stephen King has an incredible imagination, but if he sidetracks one more time I will scream. I mean it.

I‘ve also cheated and have looked up the plots of the remaining novels so I now know what happens.

This is my bravest bail yet. 🤯

TobeyTheScavengerMonk This is where I stopped my journey to the Tower too, years ago. 2y
TrishB I love the meandering 😁 2y
BarbaraBB Haha, great post! It must have taken courage to quit once you‘ve come so far! 2y

Moray_Reads Sometimes it's got to be done. Years ago I bailed on the Wheel of Time series after 11 books. I couldn't take it any more and I by that point I hated every single character. I too cheated and read the plot summary on Wikipedia to find out how the series ended! 2y
Libby1 @TobeyTheScavengerMonk - phew! I‘m not alone, then. 2y
Libby1 @TrishB - so glad you do! I was just getting more and more annoyed. Maybe I‘m not as patient as you are! 🤭😂 2y
Libby1 @BarbaraBB - I must admit that I DID feel very brave. 2y
Libby1 @Moray_Reads - that is EXACTLY what I did today. I‘m glad I‘m not alone! 2y
CouronneDhiver Well done 👍🏽 Onward and upward 2y
Cinfhen Oh WOW!!! That is a BOLD bail!!! 2y
Libby1 Thanks, @Cinfhen ! I felt bold doing it. 2y

Well. That was a doozy. Light sabers? Snitches? Dr. Doom?!? The Dark Tower books are breaking my brain.

Even though this one ended with a cliffhanger, these books are so intense (in the best way), that I think I need to wait until school‘s out to jump back in.
