    I took quite a while to get through Song Of Susannah, but I just have the epiloge to read and then onto The Dark Tower. It took me a little over a year to get through the first books- with plenty of other SK novels and Organized Crime books in-between.

    Drawing of the Three has been my favorite so far.

    I am not sure why I hesitated so long before picking up the second book in the series. I understand others (like me) were a bit turned off by the first book. I think I may stay away from this thread (sorry!) just in case some spoilers start popping up :smile:

    It took me months to get through Book VII, but it was oh so satisfying once I did. Come back to discuss the ending when you've finished Jonesy85

    Book 7 is absolutely great! Finally you will know how the greatest story ever told ends! It blew me away the first time.

    Neesy you've NEVER read them yet????? :O :O :O :O :O

    Hey - I am just beginning "The Wastelands" and enjoyed Dark Tower II very much (plus the Wind Through the Keyhole, which I read a while back) (and it now makes more sense to me, after having read the second book).

    They are not typical Stephen King stories - more fantasy and time travel, which I actually like quite a bit!

    I just finished Song of Susannah yesterday! I liked it! I do believe for me that this novel was more of a 'filler' of getting closer to the tower. I do like that this book took us to 1999. Very interesting. I think my favorite part was Roland and Eddie taking part in the shoot out at the general store in Maine. I know I've wrote this before, but I love the way King writes action! I actually really enjoyed King putting himself into the book. It was different and clever (and that epilogue at the very end, oh gosh! ;)

    This is what I'm afraid of. I'm going to start Book 7 today...but, man, just not ready to let of the characters and story. Good think Book 7 is a long one! :D

    You will cry. And get misty-eyed. Repeatedly. ...or so I have heard... :blush:

    I'll have about five boxes of tissues ready in hand, then ;) (or maybe more...)

    I really liked the ending. I'm on the lookout for Wind Through the Keyhole. I'm ordering it in September for my birthday, unless I find it at Goodwill first, flea market or library sale first.

    I enjoyed The Wind Through the Keyhole. I liked the story within a story within a story concept. And I like learning more of Roland as a young gunslinger :)

    Going to be starting this book in the next day or so. Been a year and a half since I finished Wolves Of The Calla. Time to saddle up for the Tower once again.

    Dude, I loved books 6 and especially 7. I can't wait to start The Wind Through the Keyhole and Little Sisters of Euloriah(sp).
