Book 6 is about Susanna and Mia, a demon who becomes mortal and possesses Susanna so she can steal her baby, who is half demon. I've never been a fan of Susanna, but King did do some developing of her character
I forget where exactly the book left off, cause I'm part way into 7 already, and I didn't have to ride the trains most of the last month so I haven't been reading at all lately. I will say, though, that I liked 5 better than 6. 4 is still my favorite, and I don't like where 6 and 7 went. The writer is already very much in any story, and it bugs me a little when the writer makes a character of himself and sticks it in there. It ties the worlds together nicely, but I almost didn't want them to be tied together. He's already got the Dark Tower and the beams tying the worlds together. I didn't like how he put himself as the writer of the story into the story. I can follow it, and I'm sure some people really liked it, but it took away alot of the books' believability for me. Part of the reason I can get into fantasy is because it's fantasy. It doesn't have to be rational or justified. I don't like that he justified his fantasy by putting himself in the story as the writer of the characters. He is the writer of the characters, but, okay, I'm doing a bad job of explaining what he did. He's got a character called Stephen King in the story. This character wrote all of his books, and he's part of one of the beams holding up the Dark Tower. Characters that he created, and hasn't created yet, come and talk to him and he sends them messages in the future, and it really smacked of deus ex machina - which gives the Dark Tower series two really big ones.
I don't dislike the series because of it, but it did kill a good bit of what I liked about the series. It's not bad, but I thought it could have been better, even had he just left the worlds untied as they were.
Anyway, we're now between classes and everyone wants to tell me about their holiday, so I should go.
