Review: Wolves of the Calla

Wolves of the Calla
Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow, this one had me riveted to the page that it did. The intrigue of the series keeps getting better and better, that it does. Eddie is by far my favorite character, although Roland is a very close second.

While Susannah is not a likable character to be, I am curious to see where her story goes from here. I am glad it seems Calahan is along for the ride. I never expected so many references to pop-culture from this series but I am glad they are there.

This series has truly changed my opinion of Stephen King. I had so soured a posture towards him largely because many of the adaptions of his novel into movies. While not bad, they just never grew to strongly on me. It is clear that his work should never be judged by that media and needs to be considered solely upon the media it was created for.

Fantastic book, fantastic series, I look forward to the next.

  1. This is why I told you judging King without having read the Dark Tower was unwise. :)

    Glad you are enjoying the series. I wonder what you will make of the end…
