Totally agree. I will never really like The Gunslinger--it's a lot like trudging through mud for me--but I really like the rest of the series, particularly books 2-4"Suffer through" the first book. It's not easy. I stopped 4 times. I finally finished it & read The Drawing Of The Three. I'm hooked. The second book it worlds better! I start the next one Monday.
I can't quite remember but that seems most likely to be wastelands or wizard and glass (3 or 4) because book 1 is mostly about his pursuit of the man in black and an intro to the world's, and book 2 was about getting Eddie and suze and Jake again, book 3 and 4 is where we start getting rolands back stories.Which book was the scene where Roland took on Cort to win his apprentice guns? I reckon it was the first one. Because THAT got me hooked big time.
