#EpicKaTet

As we are told several times throughout this series Ka is a wheel so is this book the end or merely a new beginning?

There are a lot of things I liked about this book and others that I personally didn‘t like but that make perfect sense within the confines of the King multiverse.

I am hoping the buddy readers return as I definitely want to chat about this.

#EpicKaTet I love all the King references and criticisms in this book.

Looks like my next King book is going to be Insomnia 🤣🤣🤣

Next up for me is this #Chunkster I am excited and scared hoping this doesn‘t let the whole series down.

I am going it alone as I seem to have lost the #EpicKaTet in the SK multiverse somewhere...

TrishB I was waiting for @MinDea to reappear! 7mo
BookwormM @TrishB so was I but my copy is a library one and I will run out of renews ☹️ 7mo
TrishB I‘m not as desperate as it‘s a reread for me and I have a copy. Look forward to seeing your review! 7mo
Jovy I was wondering the same thing! Also a reread for me. But I might forget where we left off in book 6 😂 7mo

I ended up loving this series. I admit the first two books I didn't like very much. I loved the third. The seventh was a good ending to the Tower series. There were quite a few deaths, two of which about did me in. More about those in the comments ⬇️☠⬇️ #epickatet #epickatetread

BookwormAHN Okay so Jake's and Oy's death about killed me, especially Oy's. Could King have made his more horrible. Poor little guy 😿 7mo
KathyWheeler When I first read it, I was so mad with how it ended, but I‘ve since come to see that the non-ending makes sense and could even have been predicted given the whole “ka is a wheel” thing. Then, also, this time around, it looks like Roland‘s story might end differently as he has the Horn of Eld for the first time. 7mo
Karkar I did not like the first two books either the first time. However once I went back and started them the second time they were so much better as you pick up little bits that you miss the first time. 7mo

BookwormAHN @KathyWheeler I wonder if he had paid more attention to the different rooms in the tower that he could have found other things to help his chances of ending it. Although in the first book when he is having his palaver with Walter, he does tell him that they have had this conversation before. So the ending was entirely shocking. 7mo
BookwormAHN @Karkar I plan to eventually do that. I'm sure I've missed s few things. 7mo
KathyWheeler @BookwormAHN He probably could have, but he was so focused on the one goal that he didn‘t pay attention. Oh, if you read them again, the audiobooks are a good way to do it, if you lime audio. (edited) 7mo

Oh Susannah, I may have a chance to read your story and actually keep apace with the #EpicKaTet schedule.

Bad buddy reader here started late and finished early 🤣🤣

Loved the cameo by King. Looking forward to discussion. Excited but scared for the last book what if it doesn‘t live up to the others in the series??

Andrew65 I‘m still yet to start so I‘m an even worse Buddy Reader! 😔 10mo

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

#EpicKaTet #EpicBuddyRead #TheDatkTower

#Shadow enjoyed snuggling with me while I finished this book up. Hoping to read one more book to make it 60 for the year! #CatsOfLitsy #Shippy @Zelma

MinDea I am so behind you guys but I really loved this book. I caught so many things I didn't catch before! 😱 So excited to read the next one and catch up! 11mo
Jovy Yey! 🙌🏼 I completely forgot the Oz reference too. Oy in red booties? One would think that was something I'd never forget. 😂 11mo

Andrew65 Yey! Well done. 🥳🥳🥳 I haven‘t started the next one yet. 11mo
MinDea @Jovy 😆😆😆 Yes I can't believe I forgot about that! Oy is the best! Is this a re-read of the series for you? 11mo
MinDea @Andrew65 Thanks! You're still way ahead of me. I still have to read Wolves of the Calla them I can be caught up with Song of Susannah. 😱 11mo
Jovy @MinDea Yes and I'm loving it more the second time around! I'm so glad you hosted this, I don't think I'd re-read this again all by myself. 😅 11mo
Andrew65 I‘d forgotten you were that far behind! 😱😱😱 But you got this and you can do it! I have total faith. 👍👍👍 11mo
MinDea @Jovy I am catching so many things second time around that I didn't the first time that have to do with the ending! I want to talk about the ending so bad but don't want to give any spoilers to those who are reading it for the first time. I can't wait til we all finish it and can discuss! 11mo
MinDea Thanks @Andrew65! I am trying to get the audiobook of Wolves of the Calla from the library so I can start it as soon as possible. I really want to catch up! 11mo
Jovy @MinDea I know exactly what you mean! Almost there!! 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea I think audiobooks are the way to go to catch up. 11mo
TrishB It was a great read 👍🏻 11mo
AnansiGirl The Oz like adventure of our Ka-Tet was entertaining to read. Can you imagine the cuteness of Oy in his bumbler-sized boots? 11mo
MinDea @AnansiGirl Yes! He is adorable! And I want a Billy bumbler! 😆 11mo

MinDea @Andrew65 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I gave everyone the holiday off. 😂😂 But then chop chop! 😆😆😆 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea Will be interesting to see where it heads next. 2019 is the year we finish it! 11mo
MinDea @Andrew65 😱😱😱 I have to catch up so that I can join the discussion. These last 2 books are 🤨😏😒😭😲😲😲😲😲🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea Hopefully you will get some time over the holiday period 😊 If I hadn‘t done them in audiobook format I might have struggled to keep up. They certainly explore every emotion! Also 🤯🤯🤯 as you try to work out what timeline we are on! 😂😂😂 11mo
MinDea @Andrew65 I try to do audiobooks but end up having to return them before I finish them. Hope your job is settling down too! 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea Still very intense but off for a couple of weeks but will spend some time in next week to enable me to catch up without other people being around. It hurts, but think I will have to compromise on some of my reading in the new year. I used my credits to buy the audiobooks so can revisit them at some point in the future. (edited) 11mo
MinDea @Andrew65 credits? Do you do audible? I have been thinking about doing audible.... Glad you get a couple weeks off though! Sound alike you need a break! 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea I tend to go in and out of audible, but felt I was working so hard I should treat myself and bought a year‘s credit package (24 credits for just over 640, but where possible try to buy when 2 for 3, or get one free special offers). Bought these credits in April and currently got 8 credits left, then will try to cancel as sometimes give you a special offer to get you to stay. Don‘t like the monthly commitment as not as good value. 11mo
Andrew65 @MinDea Definitely need a break. Off since Thursday night and keep falling asleep reading over the past three days, which sums up the exhaustion. Hope you get a break. 11mo
MinDea @Andrew65 that makes sense! Maybe I'll try to join when they have a deal going on! 11mo
BookwormAHN I also use my Audible credits for these. Audible can be expensive but I think its worth it, especially with Stephen King. 11mo
TrishB Will be joining in👍🏻 11mo
BookwormM Bring it on 🤣🤣🤣 11mo
AnansiGirl Jumping into this book as soon as I finish WotC 👍🏻 11mo
Jovy Almost at the finish line! Let‘s do this!! 11mo
