amazing start of a fantastic series Apr 26, 2007
This book will get you started on your trip into a world that has "moved on". It took me years to ever read these books(the Dark Tower series). I thought they were merely sci-fi with some western thrown in the mix. Boy, was I ever wrong. I'm a huge Stephen King fan and I so regret not reading these books sooner. They are not merely anything. These books describe a world and a quest so unlike anything else, they almost defy definition. Yes, the series is long. But when is an epic quest not? Take the plunge, go along with the gunslinger on his quest. You won't regret it. Possibly Stephen King's best work. Even those of you who don't like Stephen King may like these books.They're not just blood and fright. They're adventure, western,sci-fi, romance, coming-of-age......well, you get the idea. They're not JUST anything except amazing.Enjoy!
