    I plan on it. After Im done with The Shining, Im going to read "Different Seasons", and if I still have time before Joyland comes out, then I will. But yes, it's on the list.... like I said, so much to read.. so little time!

    Have you read Different Seasons before? If not, you're in for a pleasant surprise - you'll LOVE it!

    No, never... can you believe that?! I've seen the movie versions of Apt Pupil and The Shawshank Redemption, but the way SK writes, I enjoy the novel/story version of his works way better than the movie. The way SK delves into the minds of his characters, sets the mood and atmosphere, etc.... just cant be duplicated in a movie.

    As far as pure storytelling goes, you can't get much better than Different Seasons. Let us know what you think of it!

    I kind of agree with this. I want to keep an open mind as so many love the Dark Tower series and hope that if and when I get to the rest, I will gain the appreciation that others have.

    Insomnia for me as well-but then about half way through I was hooked! And I didn't finish The Gunslinger eons ago when I first tried to read it. I did redeem myself several years back when I read The Gunslinger and the rest of the DT series back-to-back within a few months!

    Secret Window, Hidden Garden - Novella from 4 past midnight. I read the other 3 fine, but I just couldn't get going with this one, the plot synopsis didn't exactly grip me, and the slow start just made it a none starter really.
