Put off reading this series for many years. I am a strong Stephen King fan and I didn't want to be disappointed. That was a big mistake. Stephen King's literary brilliance is not only maintained in this series but it outshines everything else he has written. That is almost an impossibility in itself as all his other books border on the genius. By incorporating many of his major epics (such as the Stand and Salem's Lot) into the storyline and by cleverly merging it all with his own real-life story (including his car accident in the 90's) King has created a masterpiece of intriguing and illuminating scenarios that leave the reader wondering wether this amazing story is truly fact instead of fiction. Are we all hanging on the fate of the beams and on our one true hero - the last gunslinger? Read on Stephen King fans and find out. Enter the amazing world of the Dark Tower that rivals that of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Well done Stephen King. I say true, thankee sai....
Ticks all the boxes
What this book does is makes it possible to completely lose yourself in the characters, who are believable and easily likeable if not loveable. Hours seem to lose themselves within the pages of this tale.
