    It Raised The Bar

    I admit, I didn't read the Dark Tower books as they were coming out, and selling like hotcakes. But a few years ago I picked them up at the suggestion of a friend, and it has become the standard by which all books are measured. So, even though the books have been out awhile...

    Took Some Time

    I loved the first four, but the writing style shift in books 5-7 took me awhile to love.  The first time a read the last book though I was so pissed, and I thought the ending was a complete cop out.  However, the more I thought about it the more I came to love the...

    Best Fantasy Series

      Stephen King, the most reliably readable author I’ve read. Prolific and consistently successful. The Dark Tower series ties up his horror novels with an almost plausible explanation for all the pains he's put characters through over his long career...

    Long Journey

    I started The Gunslinger in college and after several (maybe 7 or so) years finally finished the series. I'm excited for the new novel next year. I was really sad once I completed the series, not because of the ending, but because the long journey was over. I took a break in the...

    I only read the first book so far (going to start with book 2 tomorrow) I've been a King-fan since I was in my younger teen years and this spring I was doing a Derry-books-marathon re-reading some old books beginning with IT and then Insomnia and then Dream-catcher. And as those...

    I've been reading the Dark Tower series by Stephen King since I was like 12. I am 26 now and have the Dark Tower tattooed on my left forearm and Blaine the Monorail on my back. I think that Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla are my favorites. Song of Susannah shook my faith...

    The Little Prince

    I think he was inspired a little bit by this book because there is a little boy in the book who interacts with a very important rose.

    The Man In Black....

    I started reading Stephen King when I was 10 and he's been scaring me to sleep ever since. I started the DT series when all but the last two books were released so I didn't have quite the wait between books as some. I've read and reread the entire series four times straight...
