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...

Anyway:



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.

Kind of reading a few books at the same time right now.

How To Be Good-Nick Hornby

The God Delusion-Richard Dawkins

then I'm reading back over some my western civ and anthropology book.

There is a post talking about the order of the books if you are interested! It's definitely worth it!

Sorry, it took so long to reply because I was reading the book. Today, I finally finished reading it; so many tragedies, yet what a beautiful ending.


THE HUNGER GAMES!!! I highly recommend it
