Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah

I finished reading The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah by Stephen King. There are eight books in the book series.

Warning: there are some gross parts and some violence.

In this book, Stephen King writes himself in the book. No, that is not the mild blowing part that I mentioned earlier. In the previous books, Eddie, Jake, and Susannah all say they are taken out of different years in New York. In this book, Eddie discovers through Calvin Tower’s friend that his childhood neighborhood is a different town in New York according to Calvin’s friend. Which means Eddie, Jake, and Susannah were taken out of different worlds of New York instead of different years. This was mind-blowing for me.

In this book, Susannah is hijacked by Mia (a spirit). She leaves the celebration of killing the wolves and takes the bad Ball Thirteen. She goes into the door of the cave. Mia is determined to have her baby. The others learn she is gone with the ball. The bad thing is the door won’t open again. The magic is barely there. Roland gets a plan to open the door again by using the Manni’s magic tools. Eddie and Roland go to Maine to find Calvin Tower to make him sell the lot to them. Calvin refuses until Roland convinces him. Then Eddie decides they need to see Stephen King. They find out that Eddie is a twin of Roland’s friend. Stephen King does help Jake later on with a hotel key.

Meanwhile, Susannah is in New York in 1999. She finds a turtle in the bag with the ball. The turtle is magical where it hypnotizes people. So she uses it to get a hotel room and puts the ball in a safe in the room. She goes to the Dixie Pig where she finds out what the low men are. She has the baby in an Experimental lab where the wolves bring the children to be operated on. Mia learns that she was tricked (she was very naïve.) into believing she would take care of the baby. Jake and Father Callahan fall into New York of 1999. Jake uses the touch to find Susannah/Mia. They go to the hotel room to take the ball somewhere else. Then they take the turtle that Susannah drops and go into the Dixie Pig.

At the end of the book, Stephen King has his diary of the rest of the books of the Dark Tower series. It was really neat until the last entry of the diary. I did like this book. Now I’m reading Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower by Stephen King. It is the last book of the Dark Tower book series.
