Finally crying after all these years Spoilers

    Okay, first, I never write in these things - but I'm willing to pop my cherry on this one. Not since reading my first S. King novel at the tender age of 13 ('Salem's Lot) have I ever cried during the reading. I have read, literally, everything Mr. King has written with the exception of the Dark Tower series. Someone gave me #7 for Christmas (well, thanks) and so, I began the journey back at #1 - for to do otherwise is sacrilege. Spoiler alert: 'bout to discuss #7: do not read below this line if you like surprises......
    First my throat aches and I have to remove the glasses (on the green side of 50 now) when Eddie dies (and I finally accept it saying "say it ain't so King"). Tears spilling over upon reading Susannah's words. But then Jake? Curse you and horse you rode in on! Full fledge crying, snot and everything. Jake?! I'm not going to stop reading - because you're like Eddie's heroin to this Constant Reader....but as I have said at times to my husband in our 28 year marriage, "Oh, I see you want to be alone". Trust me, not good.

    I cried several times reading "The Dark Tower" series. Books don't usually affect me that way.
    First Jake, then Oy. I just knew both would die, I was just waiting, waiting for it to happen.
    Pretty screwed up! I had no empathy for the artist, I know he was essential to the end game, But he wasn't totally fleshed out, human to me. And I totally HATED the end! A never ending story......You needed to do better! Stephen King!

    Gutt response was "ouch".
    SK listens to his muse, the journey was written as it was meant to be written whether the reader enjoyed/ liked/ approved/ disapproved of the way things played out. The journey is the journey- no need to "do better".
