Book 4 of King's epic introduces Rhea, town witch of Mejis. Disrupting the forward motion narrative of Dark Tower, Wizard & Glass tells Roland's backstory. It is the most divisive book in the series. Personally I loved it. By this point we have been familiarized with the backgrounds of all of Roland's companions, but only received vague hints of his. It really fleshed him out more as a character.

"I know," Jake said. "We forgot Oy."

vivastory @KathyWheeler I do for the most part. It's interesting looking at DT artwork online, because sometimes he comes across as fierce as a direwolf. And there have been a few scenes in DT so far where he has acted that way. But sometimes he acts like Jar-Jar Binks. 😂 3mo

Every time I read this book I am reminded why it is my favorite - not just in the series, but my favorite book, period. I know King is revered for his more well-known horror books but this is King at his finest. Such a beautiful, haunting story that shows how Roland came to be Roland. I could gush about this book forever.

Halfway through my Dark Tower buddy re-read with @TheNextBook !

If you‘re one of King‘s Constant Reader then you know that he leaves easter eggs in all of his books. I love this reference to The Stand which is one of my favorite King books. This universe King created his huge and I genuinely believe that he is the only person who can even imagine for wide the scope is for it.

Karkar That is one of my favorite things too! All the hidden references to his other books! 6mo

🔮 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.

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. 11mo

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. 13mo

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.

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. 13mo
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) 13mo

#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 14mo

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.

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. 1y
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. 🙄 1y
MinDea No worries @jmofo! I totally understand! 1y
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. 1y

MinDea No worries @Andrew65! I was so behind on the last book. And have a feeling as we dive into these longer books people are going to start falling behind or even off the ka-tet! 1y
MinDea Whose copy has the illustrations? I liked them.in the last 3 books but this book I do not enjoy the illustrations. 1y
EadieB I‘m just starting part 2 Susan so only a small bit behind. (edited) 1y
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm all caught up! Will probably start the next section sometime tonight. 😊 1y
jpmcwisemorgan I‘ve given up all hope. I‘m just following all the posts as much as I can. 1y
MinDea @EadieB you're not behind! I just started that today. @GrilledCheeseSamurai you are on top of this buddy read! 1y
MinDea No problem @jpmcwisemorgan Was this a first time read for you? Do you want me to keep tagging you? 1y
BookwormAHN This is my first time reading this and I have some catching up to do. 1y
tonyahoswalt @MinDea I have the illustrations, and I don't like the either. Did you see my post with my cover? Is yours the same? The first section was okay. I'm curious to find out about Susan and the reason for the similarity in name. 1y
TK421 I'm playing catch up already. I did manage to start the first chapter, but everything has been so busy lately. I need some downtime to enjoy reading again. I really want to jump back in to this story! 1y
TrishB Not started yet😔 probably be the weekend now! But I‘ll catch up. 1y
MinDea @TrishB you have plenty of time! You read a book in like a day so you have 5 weeks before you need to start it! 😊 1y
MinDea No worries @TK421! Hope things settle down soon for you guys! 1y
Jovy Just started this today! 1y
BookwormM I am slightly behind should finish section 1 today so far I am really enjoying it especially now they have left Blaine and are in Superflu world 1y
jpmcwisemorgan You can keep tagging me. I like seeing the post and maybe someday I‘ll actually be able to read it. And yes, it‘s a first time read. 1y
rohit-sawant I was away from Litsy awhile ago and almost forgot about the buddy read but started with The Waste Lands recently and am halfway in! 1y
TrishB Lol 😆 this one may take two! 1y
MinDea @Jovy @GrilledCheeseSamurai @Fortifiedbybooks @AnansiGirl @tonyahoswalt @BookwormM @EadieB @BookwormAHN @Andrew65 @TK421 @ScientistSam @jmofo @TrishB @LazyDays just checking in. How's everyone doing with this book? Anyone want to discuss anything? Thoughts? Comments? Complaints? How's life in general? 😀 1y
MinDea @rohit-sawant yay! We are in to Wizard and Glass but catch up whenever you can and feel free to find the final discussion of The Waste Lands and start the discussion back up! Glad to have you in our ka-tet! 1y
BookwormAHN I'm caught up and I'm really enjoying this one 😺 1y
MinDea @BookwormAHN I am so glad you are enjoying this one! I am really enjoying reading it too! It's so fun hearing about Roland's past and his OG ka-tet. 1y
tonyahoswalt @MinDea I'm behind now, but hope to catch up soon! 1y
MinDea @tonyahoswalt no worries! Catch up whenever you can. 😀 1y
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! 💀 1y
MinDea @jmofo 😆😆 No problem! I totally understand. 1y
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm friggen loving these books all over again and it just makes me so very, very, happy! 🙃 1y
TK421 I'm a little behind, but I'm trying to catch up. 1y
MinDea No worries @TK421! Looks like a lot of people are behind! 1y
BookwormM I am also behind should get caught by the weekend 1y
Jovy Still behind too! But should be caught up soon! 1y

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.

thereadingowlvina Love barn owls! 😁 1y
MinDea A Barn Owl! So cool!!!! I also enjoy birds, especially birds of prey! 1y
