De Donkere Toren is het verbindende element in Stephen Kings legendarische oeuvre. Meer dan dertig jaar geleden begon hij eraan, geïnspireerd door onder andere J.R.R. Tolkiens In de van van de ring, de poëzie van Robert Browning en de wersternfilms van Sergio Leone. Het is het verhaal dat King al die jaren trouw is gebleven, zijn magnum opus. Overal in zijn andere werk vin ...more

One small quibble so far...on page 390, while defining "Territories", RF States that "Every human being in our world has a 'twinner ' in the territories." However, it's actually a plot point that the territories are smaller and not everyone has a twinner. --
The Talisman, pg. 52 paperback: "'There's people in this world have got Twinners in the Territories,' Speedy said. 'Not many, because there's a lot less people over there -- maybe only one for every hundred thousand over here. But Twinners ca

Yeah I'm reading a concordance of a Stephen King novel. Don't be hating!

I would be lying to say that I have "read" this nearly 700 page book - it is a reference book, you don't read it cover to cover!

However, I have read the intro and referenced secgtions to clean up my own maps - The earlier maps I have seen (and the current ones) for " The Gunslinger" and "The Drawing of Three" are not quite right.

However I got a huge buzz out of this (making it 4 stars instead of 3), when Furth exoplicitly maade the connect for me that around 300 years had passed while Roland wa

I kinda dislike this book for several reasons.
After reading some of the dark tower comics, i have cometo the realization that i am not a big fan of Robin Furth style of writing or even of some of her interpretations about the dark tower. I think that King left some holes in the story that she is trying to fill in her definitions during this book.
Another thing that bothered me was that the book makes a little bit of emphasys in The Wind through the keyhole, which to me is an irrelevant addition t

It was not what I thought it was going to be. I would only recommend this to the most die hard Dark Tower Fan. This is a reference manual than categorizes previous information from the series and comics. Does not give any new info from what I can tell.

This book is the ultimate companion piece to Stephen's King 'The Dark Tower' series, listing every person, place and thing of note within the series, describing each item and providing both information from throughout the series on each item (helping straighten up some clues and references) as well as further information, including potential references to other Stephen King books. A must have for any Tower fan.
Billy
A HUGE, detailed companion book to the epic Dark Tower series. Written by Robin Furth, the supposed foremost expert on all things Dark Tower, besides Sai King. I dont think this book is essential for the series, but having it as a reference tool is priceless if you want to squeeze every last drop out of the Dark Tower. Basically an encylopedia for DT Junkies
Emma
A must-have for Dark Tower fans, a comprehensive guide to just about every person, place, and expression used in the Dark Tower novels. Perfect for refreshing your memory, or just perusing at your leisure and it is easy to use as each entry contains corresponding page numbers for the books themselves. Also contains an introduction by Stephen King himself.

Recommends it for: Anyone reading or have read The Dark Tower series.
Though I didn't fully "read" this book. I skimmed it to see how complete it was as a reference to the Dark Tower universe. This universe includes many books that Stephen Kink has written like The Stand.

The Dark Tower universe is quite vast and a book like The Complete Concordance is a great companion while reading the series.

Well this is Stephen King and as an avid reader,i feel any reader who reads to travel to different worlds this series is the best of many worlds. He done an excellent job keeping it all together and keeping every one on edge for the next book (which he took a little long in finishing, but it was worth the wait).
Patrick McWilliams
R.F. does an excellent job of compiling Dark Tower data. Fans of the series could probably read this concordance straight through and thoroughly enjoy it!
April (The Steadfast Reader)
A useful tool in reading the Dark Tower series. Especially if you stop in the middle to read something else. Great resource.

I have the original two separate volumes of the Concordance, but I'd love to have this new revised one!

Was intended to be a slow read, to be picked up for a few minutes at a time occasionally. Very informative!
Agneata
So this is not one that you read cover to cover. But it goes nicely with the series.

Everything you wanted to know...makes me sleepy with pure data. Love

Thorough companion and an interesting read in itself.

“Ka is a wheel; its one purpose is to turn. The spin of ka always brings us back to the same place, to face and reface our mistakes and defeats until we can learn from them. When we learn from the past, the wheel continues to move forward, towards growth and evolution. When we don’t, the wheel spins backward, and we are given another chance. If once more we squander the opportunity, the wheel continues its rotation towards devolution, or destruction.” 2 likes
