    I tried, unsuccessfully, to get through 'Lisey's Story' at least 3 times in the past. I only just read it from beginning to end this past year.
    I also found 'Insomnia' to be somewhat of a chore, but I'm going to give that one another go.
    'The Tommyknockers' and 'The Regulators' were slow-going for me as well.

    Gerald's Game. It was just so psychically painful. I'll try to read it one more time, on my chronological reading of all his works, but after that, probably never again. Maybe next time it won't have so much power.

    I love, love, love Insomnia. It does start a little slow but I promise it's worth getting through it. It really picks up.

    Sundrop, I totally agree! I've tried to read Dreamcatcher at least 3 times. I even watched the movie to hopefully spark my interest...but I could never get into it. Plus, I didn't care for the movie all that much. All of the [flatulence and burping kept aggravating me and I had a nightmare about the alien in the bathroom.]I really want to finish it though. I guess I will pick it up again...eventually...

    I always see Gunslinger quoted as a hard book to read, I flew through Gunslinger on my 1st try and loved it, Drawing of the 3 was amazing for me, I had no problems at all, even with the 'Detta speak'. my least favourite so far in the DT series is Wastelands, but the hardest one to get through was Wizard and Glass - the reason was that Wastelands finaly got good at the end, and W&G started good and I was loving the progress on the beam, but then it stopped for a huge back story in the form of Susan. Don't get me wrong, when I did read it, I loved that section, but it was just in the wrong place at the wrong time for me. I had to stop for a re-read of IT, then picked it up again, so that took me the longest time and most effort. Now I am on Wolves of the Calla so I still have quite a bit of Dark tower to read.

    Gunslinger, it took me a while to read that, it was so confusing and far out to me

    I have a problem with finishing Lisey's Story, so far I put it aside. I think, maybe now I am not ready to understand this book, that's why I just could not keep reading it. Maybe, one day I will return to it and try again.
