The beginning of the end has arrived: Join Losers Randall Colburn, Ana Marie Cox, Dan Pfleegor, and Dan Caffrey as they ascend Stephen King's The Dark Tower VII. In the first of two book episodes, they'll discuss endings, second chances, and the weight of expectation. Is The Dark Tower King’s crowning achievement, as so many posited at the time of its release? Also, what has King said about it — and why does he sound so angry saying it? Stay tuned for the second and final episode next week.
In their second episode dedicated to The Dark Tower, the last book in Stephen King’s Dark Tower saga , the Losers get caught in the web of the book’s most controversial character: the child-spider Mordred. Is the hungry arachnid one of King’s most vicious villains or a massive letdown? And what of his most controversial kill? They also delve deep into the story’s deep bench of supporting players, which includes some familiar faces from King’s Dominion, and sort through all that’s scary and silly in End-World. As a bonus, the Losers rank the Dark Tower books, which we’re sure won’t make any of you mad.
