Utterly Amazing. The best in the gunslinger series, imo. This book had me riveted from the moment Roland sits them down at a campfire to tell his story until the last word drips off the page in frothing tension.

The gunslingers are trapped aboard a runaway train. The train is a psychotic multiple personality that intends to commit suicide with them at 800 m.p.h.—unless Roland and pals can outwit it in a riddling contest.

It's a great race, for the mind and pulse. Movies should be this good.

Then comes a 567-page flashback about Roland at age 14. It's a well-marbled but meaty tale. Roland and two teen homies must rescue his first love from the dirty old drooling mayor of a post-apocalyptic cowboy town, thwart a civil war by blowing up oil tanks, and seize an all-seeing crystal ball from Rhea, a vampire witch. The love scenes are startlingly prominent and earthier than most romance novels.
