A review by someone who enjoys the books., 26 Jun 2003
Although the first in the series (''The gunslinger'') was less interesting, this edition really draws the reader into Roland of Gilead's world. Roland discovers himself on a beach somewhere he knows not and, as he progresses along the beach in search of his elusive dark tower, he finds three doors, that are in fact portals into our world. Three times he goes through and three times he finds himself in the mind of that whom he must draw. The ending is climatic and overall the story is worth whatever price laid upon it, being a compelling read and wonderful tale.
