    Waits between the original publications could be trying. Work eval came up and one question was describe your 5 year plan. Plain and simple in bold print: Get off the dam mono. Boss understood!

    Yeah, good luck with that. I would say going from book 2 to 3, and 4 to 5 will test your resolve. Book 3 - wasteland - ends with a cliffhanger but I didn't like that book so that's when I took my 1st break to read a different novel.

    I wish I still had dark tower books to read 1st time, it's so easy to get drawn in to that world.

    Dark Tower series is not to be missed. So many places I can still see in my minds eye. Wanting to discover all the magic in every tunnel or hidden glade. Getting so attached to the seekers

    As a latecomer to the DT series, I was lucky enough ti devour them all in one ferocious go. A wait would have driven me nuts. Don't wait be greedy!

    The best ending to a book series goes to "The Dark Tower"!

    I really don't understand all the hate the ending gets. I thought it was perfect...

    You do need to get your head around it, though.

    It is the only ending Sai King could have given us. None other would do.

    My buddy and I are re-reading for our podcast (see below). This will be his fourth time through. I read the first three books over 25 years ago and didn't really get them, so I'm coming at them like new. Looking forward to the journey.

    Hey you are one lucky leprechaun- when I started reading there were still four books waiting to be translated by sai king, not counting keyhole. They’re all in print now.

    Though those damn red eyes made nervous as hell - couldn’t help but wonder if next cycle might have roland inheriting them

    It builds. You meet new characters and they're all fascinating.

    Many have had difficulties with the Gunslinger, I do suggest you continue the journey. Each book will draw you closer to the characters, the story and the adventures to come. This journey can be life changing. Enjoy!!
