    I took almost 3 years to read the series(with many books in-between). I loved the ending. In a few months I'm ordering The Wind Through the Keyhole, looking forward to reading it.
    Now I'm onto The Eyes of the Dragon.

    You'll love Wind... It had been a while since I'd been traveling with Roland's tet by the time I read Wind... and was so happy to hear the language again.

    Now, Jonesy, you gotta start all over so you can really become immersed in the world(s) that King created and truly appreciate what he did with those books. I'm glad you liked the ending, it was pretty controversial for us here on the SKMB.

    I liked it (except I didn't like it having to end at all). My sis didn't like it, but then admitted understanding it was the only ending that could be.

    The Dark Tower is a journey of a lifetime. Enjoy Wind- it will feel like a family reunion!

    One thing in Volume 7 of The Dark Tower has always bothered me. Did Jake change Ka when he sent the van driver a message that he needed a "pit stop". If the van driver hadn't stopped, he would have been further along the road and maybe would have missed connecting with the writer. Does anyone else had that thought? Of course, that is exactly what accomplished the plot turn and the ending.

    Though getting there is important, it's the journey that counts.

    Two songs that come to my mind with this series are Into the Mystic by Van Morrison and Your Wildest Dreams by the Moody Blues. Anyone else have an interesting Dark Tower playlist?

    I depends on if you believe in fate or free will. I encourage every scifi lover to read "The Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury published 1952.

    Just finished the series through for the 2nd time. The first time I disliked the ending a lot. I guess I was one of those greedy, impatient people that Sai King was warning before plunging ahead to the ending. This time I can admit that it was the right ending. It was more optimistic than I remembered.
