    Agreed. If I'd been reading a hard copy instead of listening to the audio version, it would've been rough. Not sure why, but it just never grabbed me.

    I think Lisey's story is a time and place in life book to read. It is a different style. Try it again in a few years. Over the years I have found books read years ago have a different feel/meaning in later years.

    For me Wizard and Glass. Out of the first 5 DT books I've read its easily the worst to me but I still like it!

    Tommyknockers, Needful Things and Under the Dome. They just weren't page turners for me. Became a chore to read. There was also a tiny bit in the middle of 12/11/97 that I slowed right down on but it soon picked up again. Probably spent as long reading those middle hundred or so pages as I did the rest of the book.

    I cannot finish Lisey's Story. The last time I tried was a couple of years ago. I just got it on my Kindle and I am determined to get through it this time.

    I'll take a lot of heat for this, but at least I'm being honest:

    It was so difficult for me to get through The Gunslinger that I haven't wanted to read the rest of the Dark Tower series.

    Trust us on this one, read the second one and then decide if it's not for you. I might have been saying the same thing if I hadn't gone on.
