This is the first time ever I have read a Steven King novel. Yes, I know he is reputed to be an excellent writer, but I don’t do horror. Period. But, After picking this up in my local bookstore. I found out that some of my friends have read all the Dark Tower Volumes and highly rate them. And I have admit I can see why..... The book had me wanting to read on all the way through sometime I tried to fight sleep to read on.. however this didn't work i would be woken up by the book slapping me in the face.

I enjoyed the story, especially the opening in the small town, and the flashbacks to Roland's earlier life. I have to admit I didn't know what to make of the final philosophical musings, but I suspect that will clear up in the later volumes.....

All in all a very good read, can't wait to get my hands on Volume 2....
