The Waste Lands: (the Dark Tower #3)(revised Edition) is rated 4 out of 5 by 7.
The Third Volume in the Epic Dark Tower Series…
The Waste Lands



In 1978, Stephen King introduced the world to the last gunslinger, Roland of Gilead.  Nothing has been the same since. More than twenty years later, the quest for the Dark Tower continues to take readers on a wildly epic ride. Through parallel worlds and across time, Roland must brave desolate wastelands and endless deserts, drifting into the unimaginable and the familiar. A classic tale of colossal scope—crossing over terrain from The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, Insomnia, The Talisman, Black House, Hearts in Atlantis, ’Salem’s Lot, and other familiar King haunts—the adventure takes hold with the turn of each page.

And the tower awaits....


Roland, The Last Gunslinger, moves ever closer to The Dark Tower of his dreams and nightmares—as he crosses a desert of damnation in a macabre world that is a twisted image of our own. With him are those he has drawn to this world: street-smart Eddie Dean and courageous wheelchair-bound Susannah.

Ahead of him are mind-rending revelations about who and what is driving him. Against him is arrayed a swelling legion of foes—both more and less than human....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another delight I liked this book as well its probably tied with the drawing of the three for favorite in this series. I liked Blaine the train and this one had a lot more action then the other two. plus Jake comes back into it and i liked him to being with. I recommend you keep going if you have read the first two and are unsure of whether your really wanna read the rest

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best one so far The third book in King's Dark Tower series is the best one yet. Roland the Gunslinger is now joined in his world by two companions Eddie and Susannah. And their quest continues on, including the drawing of the last person to their group, Jake. The characters really start to come into their own in this book. They are more interesting and well rounded. We also get to meet other characters along the way, namely the Tick-Tock Man and mysterious wizard with the initials R.F. (which King fans will know). Hopefully the rest of the series continues on like this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Slow Train Coming Like the monster train on the cover, the third Dark Tower novel takes a long time to get going, but once it does (in the final third of the book), it rolls along at freight like speed and tension, bringing a satisfying close to cap a tedious opening which serves as a poor man's possible world theory and a typical King middle with a house that seems ripped off from Barker's "Thief of Always".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And the tower draws nearer. Probably my favorite of the 4 that i've read so far. Though it didnt hold the romance of the fourth, or the unique and mesmerizing introduction of the world that the 1st had it was definitely my favorite. I'm not a big horror buff, Im more of the kinda guy who can read something not scary but actionpacked/romantic all day. But these books are amazing, I know that they arent what you'd call scary but in truth I find them creepy. The references to our world, the idea of the world moving on, the way people have been reduced to nothing. All of his Dark Tower books are amazing and I'll keep on reading until I finish. Justin

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its no Langoliers Langoliers was a good book. But I think this one was still okay. However, his best stuff is still Cujo, The Shining, Along Came A Spider, Kiss The Girls, Shawshank Redemption and Misery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of this world The first book was excellent, the second one was even better and well... it just keeps getting better and better with this one. The events are downright mind-boggling, the characters are very captivating, the action will drive you nuts. WOW!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good! I really enjoyed the third book in the Dark Tower series. Having read the first two I found this one to be alittle slow starting and sometimes hard to keep interest in, but whatever you do don't stop, it gets better as you go. I am truly glad to have found The Dark Towers series and greatly enjoy Stephen Kings imagination, he really opens up your own imagination and always keeps you wanting more. The cross referencing to his other books are put in just the right places and in doing so has got me interested in reading more of his literature. I highly recommend this series to anyone that enjoys alittle fantasy crossed with some action and suspense. I find myself having a hard time putting these books down once I've started reading.

Read from the Book

38 JAKE HAD NO CLEAR memory of the time which followed, and that was probably merciful. He had left his world over a year before nine hundred people would commit suicide together in a small South American country called Guyana, but he knew about the periodic death-rushes of the lemmings, and what was happening in the disintegrating undercity of the Grays was like that. There were explosions, some on their level but most far below them; acrid smoke occasionally drifted from the ventilator grilles, but most of the air-purifiers were still working and they whipped the worst of it away before it could gather in choking clouds. They saw no fires. Yet the Grays were reacting as if the time of the apocalypse had come. Most only fled, their faces blank O''s of panic, but many had committed suicide in the halls and interconnected rooms through which the steel sphere led Roland and Jake. Some had shot themselves; many more had slashed their throats or wrists; a few appeared to have swallowed poison. On all the faces of the dead was the same expression of overmastering terror. Jake could only vaguely understand what had driven them to this. Roland had a better idea of what had happened to them-to their minds-when the long-dead city first came to life around them and then seemed to commence tearing itself apart. And it was Roland who understood that Blaine was doing it on purpose. That Blaine was driving them to it. They ducked around a man hanging from an overhead heating-duct and pound
