Stephen King The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah with 10 full-color illustrations by Darrel Anderson The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is at once a book of revelation, a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower, and a fast-paced story of double-barreled suspense. To give birth to her "chap," demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah ... and terrifying to the "daughter of none," who shares her body and mind. Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining katet climbs to the Doorway Cave ... and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy-bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who, in a struggle to cope -- with each other and with an alien environment -- "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term. Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called 'Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him. These are the simple vectors of a story rich in complexity and conflict. Its dual climaxes, one at the entrance to a deadly dining establishment and the other appended to the pages of a writer's journal, will leave readers gasping for the saga's final volume (which, Dear Reader, follows soon, say thank ya).… (mais)

We pick right back up from the Wolves of the Calla where we learn that Susannah is gone with Black Thirteen to go have her (Mia's) baby in New York. They made an agreement at the end of Wolves of the Calla that if Susannah could fight she would help Mia give birth to her baby.

After a few books of all being together, for the first time the ka-tet is separated from each other, with Susannah/Mia in New York, Roland and Eddie going after Calvin Tower, and Jake, Oy, and Callahan going after Susannah. We're treated to a great and relatively surprising shoot-out for one pair after travelling through the door and get introduced to a few new characters. I really enjoyed the new characters, even Stephen King makes an appearance after being hinted at in the Wolves of the Calla. If you've read any other reviews on here you'll see many people hating King for making himself into a character but I thought it was fine and worth the storyline. Kind of a trippy experience and sort of takes you out of the novel, but overall I thought it was an important development based on where we left off with Callahan finding Salem's Lot.

Susannah gets to learn more about her baby and who the father really is, something I didn't see coming. We learn more about which world is the "real world" after several stories of different levels and different whens, it was nice to explore the "actual" world where once someone dies, they stay dead in all the other whens. This part really upped the suspense in this book knowing that any consequences were final in the real world. I thought it was really important for the ka-tet to be separated especially for Jake to really take the reins on his mission without Roland looking over his shoulder.

The book ends on a cliffhanger, King probably just wants everyone to jump right into Dark Tower and I know that's what I'll be doing, let's finish this quest once and for all. ( )

Song of Susannah is my favorite of Stephen King’s Dark Tower books so far.

There are several reasons. For one thing, King picks up right where the last book, Wolves of the Calla, left off, with Roland’s companion Susannah partially possessed by Mia, a former demon determined to have her baby in Susannah’s body. And unlike some of the earlier subplots in the series, this one ties directly to the main story: Mia’s child will be no ordinary boy—he’s foretold to be Roland’s doom and the Breaker of the last Beams supporting the multiverse. Upping the urgency even more, one of those Beams fails early in Song of Susannah. In short, the stakes are high and the story gripping.

Until King enters the story. Literally—as a character.

This threw me at first. Earlier books in the series have referenced some of King’s other works, most notably The Stand and Salem’s Lot. And some of the characters were starting to realize that they might be characters, fictional constructs rather than actual people. But in Song of Susannah, King is one of those constructs.

It’s easy to see this as indulgent. Every character an author creates contains a bit of that author, but explicitly writing yourself into your self-proclaimed “Ur Story” like this is only a character sheet and a twenty-sided die away from roleplaying. And Song of Susannah isn’t a tongue-and-cheek piece of self-aware literature like Redshirts. The Dark Tower series takes itself pretty seriously (well, as seriously as a series with “lobstrosities” can). It’s an epic tale that didn’t start with any indication that it would feature such a device.

I also balked at how King’s inclusion of himself took me out of the story. The best books allow you to get lost in them; they’re not just words on a page—they’re experiences. But when the author appears on the page, you’re forced to acknowledge that you’re reading something he/she wrote, and it destroys the illusion.

So given those reservations, why did I still like Song of Susannah? Because as I went further, King pulled me back in by making himself a believable character. He doesn’t shrink from his brushes with alcoholism and drug use. He’s not a hero: he’s a person, flawed but trying. And I’m okay with that.

I’m also excited to read the final book in the series. I wasn’t sure that would be the case when I set out on this journey with Roland and (later) his band of gunslingers, but if nothing else, Song of Susannah suggests the Dark Tower will finish strong.

The book seemed short and non-conclusive. I had my ideas where it would land and it seems to be going there. One book to go and the final chance to be surprised. Despite that, it's a flowing tale and as a background event it works quite well. The book equivalent of elevator music? One thing though, the obsessions with 19, 99 or 1999 is getting on my nerves. It better turn out to have a central role in the story's conclusion or it was just a waste of space. ( )

Definitely my least favorite of the Dark Tower books (at least, so far...one more to go). ( )

This had parts the I like much more than the previous volume, but omg Stephen King, I do not want to read about you in your own book. I just don't. The few bits where that took over the story were painfully boring to someone who's only ever read one King book outside this series. It might be a bit before I start in on the final book. ( )

Reading "Song of Susannah," the penultimate novel in Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, is rather like taking on the third leg of a triathlon.

It's no coincidence that Stephen King began the final sprint of his marathon "Dark Tower" epic shortly after the events of Sept. 11, 2001. What's now clear -- and certainly wasn't when some of us read "The Gunslinger," the first story in the sequence, more than 25 years ago -- is that this saga is more than just an unlikely mishmash of spaghetti Western, Arthurian high fantasy and post-apocalyptic sci-fi.
 
Reviewing the fifth volume of Stephen King's Dark Tower sequence, Wolves of the Calla, for this paper I suggested that this probably wasn't the best place for new readers to begin. Volume Six, Song of Susannah, however, almost works as a stand-alone novel, and is highly recommended for readers who enjoy the more metafictional side of King's oeuvre, and especially those who have been waiting for something along the lines of his greatest novel to date, Hearts in Atlantis.
