A Lucky Find! 5/5 stars!

I've never read a Stephen King book, but after two friends started reading this series, I decided I had to read it now. Everyone is always saying he is a good writer, and they are right! It is a bit slow-moving at first. That's not a surprise though since it's the first...
I've never read a Stephen King book, but after two friends started reading this series, I decided I had to read it now. Everyone is always saying he is a good writer, and they are right! It is a bit slow-moving at first. That's not a surprise though since it's the first in a series of seven books. It's not a boring read at all though, it just takes a while to get attached to the characters (Like most books). King provides plenty of twists in the mean-time to keep you reading.
I'll be sure to stop by the library when i can to get the next book in the series. King has gotten me very interested in continuing to read his works and i plan to do so. It was a mysterious plot with a dark and twisted sense of humor. Looking forward to reading more of his work! Ive never really read any books like this one so all i can recommend is to read the series yourself if you haven't.

Not the original

I'm not sure these people writing reviews understand. I've been reading the Dark Tower series for around 13 years now. People are writing this review for the original book, which it isn't. This is a re-written version. Each new Dark Tower book since DT2, the Drawing of the Three becomes a little less interesting. Why change one of the best books Stephen King has ever written?

    Yeah...whatever

    I really like some of Stephen King's stuff. I loved The Stand and had heard nothing but praise for the Dark Tower books. I have to say that it was tedious and disappointing. King describes it as being influenced by the Lord of the Rings and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. I found that it rang of bad and ugly...just boring.
