I love Stephen King, but this series just isn't for me! I won't be continuing on with the series.

Jessica What is funny is when I first read gunslinger I felt like it wasn't for me either. Now like 5 years later I reread it and loved it! Sorry you couldn't get into it

Jorge de la Vega The series is a complete lackluster. Honestly, it gets worse with every volume, save for the fourth one which is the backstory of Roland and kinda interesting in that capacity, and maybe the seventh if your suspension of disbelief is strong enough. Stephen King is a great author, but his tendency to drone on and on and on usually diminishes his stories and their shock value. Song of Susannah, in particular is excruciating to get through given this. Also, for a series with a (reportedly) badass Clint Eastwood-ish interdimensial gunslinger as a protagonists, there's alarmingly little gunslinging to be found in the thousands of pages that conform it. I did go all the way to the Dark Tower some years back, but was definitely not satisfied in the least by neither the journey nor what I found at the end. This series is the main reason I'll always recommend Clive Barker over Stephen King, truth be told.

Joe I agree. Not sure why he took so long to write this, as I truly believe it is among his worst work, at lest up until Dr. Sleep, or whatever that dreadful thing was called. King at his best is worth five stars; at his worst is hard to finish.
