Dark Tower

I'm probably the last person who cares about this to have their say [1], and everyone else has said it better. But say it now I will, rather than waiting ten years:

I'm with Sai King; I'm not keen on the ending, but it's the only one that make sense. Once the story becomes metafiction, and we know that ka is a wheel; when it becomes clear that the Dark Tower is The Dark Tower, then what else can Roland find in the last room?

[1] If you've not read it you'll probably saying "Seven books? Seven? You expect me to read seven volumes? That first one is really thin - but look at the price! And the last four are really thick - how do you expect me to get through them?"
