Quotes & Awards

  • Wolves of the Calla is one of the strongest entries yet in what will surely be a master storyteller’s magnum opus.”

    Locus

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    " This book delivers. It's got a great storyline, is fast moving and exciting. And in typical Stephen King fashion, the last 100 pages (whatever that equates to in the audio version) are awesome! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chap | 4/13/2016

    " The Wolves of the Calla, written by Stephen King and narrated by George Guidall is the fith book in the Gun Slinger series. This is Mr. King's Opus Magnum and many of his other books owe it's origin to this masterpiece. Start at book number one (the gunslinger) and listen or read them all. It is fantastic and well worth the time. George Guidall is a fantastic narrator of this book. After completion of the fith book in the series the characters in the book have become well developed and at this point it is natural to have a favorite. Mine is Eddie Dean. "

    " This one is my favorite of the series thus far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 1/28/2014

    " The fifth book in King's Dark Tower series sends the reader back to Roland's Midworld as he and the ka-tet strive to reach the dark land of Thunderclap and, hopefully, the Dark Tower. In a series that has shown a really interesting shift between genres, King surprises once again with a bizarre mixing of Old West gunfighter stories and post-apocalyptic sci-fi with influence from Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". Continues to be a very interesting series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irina | 1/24/2014

    " This seems to be the last book of the series where Stephen King actually made a clear-headed effort to describe the adventures of Roland and his ka-tet. Farther than this everything truly feels like fluff and borders on the brink of absurdity and lazy writing. I would honestly recommend that people stop at this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 1/20/2014

    " This book killed the series for me... in fact.. I never finished the Dark Tower series because of it. It dragged on and on, added nothing to the story and took hundreds of pages for anything of note to happen. The best came from a short cameo appearance from another famous Stephen King novel. I've heard good things about the last few books, but just couldn't make myself do it after reading Wolves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 1/18/2014

    " I used to read a lot of Stephen King, but it's been several years since have read one of his books, and while the story was good at least 2/3rds of this book was filler, and now I remember why I moved on to other reading. His books tend to be very slow. I was pretty board though all but 3 parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 1/17/2014

    " Probably the best book in the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 SweetPea | 1/16/2014

    " This wasn't my favorite in the Dark Tower series. While the story had interesting points, it didn't feel as compelling as some of the earlier installments. And I would have preferred that Stephen King hadn't inserted himself into the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 12/29/2013

    " This has been the most entertaining book of The Dark Tower for me so far. It seems a little less muddled than the earlier books. I did find the pop culture references a bit forced but I appreciate what King is trying to do by tying his story to others, including his own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tjoel2 | 12/28/2013

    " Re-read for the second time March 2012 "

    " Did not remember anything of this book! Couldn't put it down....on to the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 8/8/2013

    " I have read everything Stephen King has written at least twice (he's my favorite living author), but The Stand and The Dark Tower series of books are my favorite of them all! Love this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannie | 4/8/2013

    " It's hard to call something other than "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" King's greatest work, so I will call it his most beautiful sonata, but call The Dark Tower Series the opus - the symphony. And I say this without hesitation, with 2 of the 7 left to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 2/10/2013

    " My favorite book in the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 5/24/2011

    " It was in the middle of book five that my brother-in-law looks over at me and announces "oh, is that the Dark Tower series? Where at the end ......" and he proceeded to tell me what the end of book seven entails. I could have killed him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kione | 5/17/2011

    " EFFIN COOL!!!
    Kinda slow but totally COOL! "

    " You are treading thin ice, Mr. King. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maury | 4/22/2011

    " To be extremely pithy, I thoroughly enjoyed every single bit of this book. I had heard it was the weakest in the collection, but I guess I'm an oddball -- I think it's one of the best so far! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blair | 4/14/2011

    " I loved this story. I really like the Magnificent 7 even though it is a blatant rip off of The 7 Samurai. This is along the same vein. I love new and fun takes on old classics as long as they are done well and openly sighting their source. King does this masterfully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 4/8/2011

    " Also a little long, but an excellent book. Excellent series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elise | 4/6/2011

    " This book isn't something I'm in a hurry to re-read. "
