    Default Almost Finished! Please Help!

    Hello I am almost finished with The Dark Tower III and I was wondering if I should go to Insomnia after this before moving onto The Dark Tower IV? I heard that he incorporates some of Insomnia into The Dark Tower books. I have already read most of the ones before III but I havent read Insomnia yet. Also Should I read The Wind Through The Keyhole in between IV & V?

    Welcome to the site. It's not (absolutely) necessary to read Insomnia first, but it may enhance the journey for you if you do. I read WTTK after the Dark Tower series and don't think I lost anything at all by reading it in this order... up to you, it doesn't really change the journey at all by being book 4.5 or book 8.

    I read all the books as published,so had Insomnia under my belt. Yes, it plays a part in the DT journey, but I personally feel there is enough info given to you in the DT books that you'll understand the "connection". Like Flake, I read TWTTK after the DT journey. I took it as a "family" reunion. Visiting old friends again- like a family reunion at Christmas time. TWTTK is a stand alone book, again with a strong connection to the DT journey. It depends on how you feel- a side trip to Insomnia, or continuing on the path to the tower. Enjoy!

    ...the ladies have given excellent advice, but regardless of which order you read them in-all roads lead to the Tower...

    I've read the complete Dark Tower series, but have not yet read Insomnia......I don't feel that I lost out on anything.

    Just finished and I must say I can't believe the way it ended. I am excited to keep going with the series but I think I will take a detour and go with Insomnia first. I don't know how to block my text so if you don't want any spoilers stop reading now.

    I am wondering if you guys and gals think the Turtle he mentions in this story is the same Turtle in IT?
