Rating: 6/10. It was enjoyable to read for the most part and well written. Nothing really special, IMO. Honestly, after reading the first 2 books I sincerely fail to see what everybody has been wetting their pants over about this series, King's 'magnum opus'. I will finish the series of course and I'm not making a judgement about the series as a whole after only reading 2 of the books; just saying that so far, I was expecting a lot more. I suspect that the genius of this series can only be appreciated after having read the entire series and only then will all of the links connect and the big picture be revealed, giving true appreciation.
I agree. I was being pushed by everone to read the Dark Tower. They said it's be right up my alley but... I just never could get into it like I could other books.
I recently picked up an interesting looking book that seems to be a series of books with similar themes so I'm curious to see if they are connected at all...
If I had to bet right on the spot on whether or not that was a pen name I'd have put all my money on it being one. But it's not. James Lovegrove? That's too good a name man.
