I am almost done with Danse Macabre and it is the first time I have read it. Not too bad of a read but the picture on the back of Stephen King with a lot of facial hear and thick glasses is, well, kinda creepy (sorry!). It's a pretty old book. I would recommend it as he gives suggestions for various books to read that have been made into movies e.g. The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
Coincidentally Neesy, last month I finished the audiobook of the new edition of Danse Macabre. The updated introduction is quite interesting because he talks about new movies of the past 20 years or so--I wish it were longer, but we can always refer to the EW articles I guess.
I am still on the journey of the tower, I knew it would be a long one. Stopping partway through W&G to read IT again didn't help, but was totally worth it. I'm currently enjoying Wolves of the Calla, but I have recently spent a bit too much time looking back over 11/22/63 in digital form. I must stop it now or I will still be reading the dark towers next new year.
