Took me a long time to buy this series
on 22 October 2017
I'm a fan of Stephen King. I've read his novels, short stories, novellas. I've followed him from hardback and paperback books to e-books and the world of kindle. For a very long time I've been aware of The Dark Tower series, but have never had the slightest desire to read it.
Then, a couple of weeks ago, I decided it was time. I read the first one; I didn't like the story much, but Stephen King is a fantastic writer, and I read it to the end. Then I wanted to find out what happened next, so with the ease of ordering for kindle, I bought the second. This one was much better and I flew through it and bought the third, which was better than the second . Wizard and Glass is, in my opinion, the best yet.
I've bought the fifth book now and hope it continues apace. One of the reasons I like Stephen King so much is because his writing is so powerful. The downside of this is when he's writing about the death or downfall of a character you've come to like. However, it is all necessary to the story I feel, and the inclusion of some of his characters from other books is done very well.
