I usually read much higher-brow books than King - *singular head-wobble* - but I am enjoying 'The Gunslinger'. It's interesting and pretty well written.

King is the King. And the Dark Tower proves it - he will rule forever.

I will never, ever forget that opening line: "The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed."

Great stuff! The first book was a little hard to chew in the beginning, but once the story gets it's pace it goes from good to amazing fast.
Just finished reading book 4 'Wizard and Glass' so 3 more to go and I can't wait to read how this tale will continue.
Kick ass material

Yeah, I just got done with book III. I'm really enjoying it so far, and I loved the bit [SPOILER - highlight to read]: where Roland tells Blaine how it is.

It's certainly an epic book in scope.

Oh shit, man...I just finished book VII, and all I can say is:

That ending was shit!

I did all that reading, and all I got was a cop-out ending. Pff, cheated.

Why don't you just read the last page of books in future?

doesn't he outright tell his readers NOT to read the ending, because it will probably piss them off?

Are you saying that I don't enjoy the minute before I ejaculate? I do, I really do.

If I stopped where he wanted me to I'd still be let-down. If you name a book 'The Dark Tower', then you would expect to enter it at the end. Maybe he should have just called the series 'A Number of Long Books With Some Good Bits But Which Ultimately Runs Out Of Imagination At The End'.

Although, I love Catcher In The Rye, but there are no fields in that one.

It all depends on the importance you place on ejaculation.

I see, I see.

Well, the ejaculation doesn't have to be THAT good, as long as everything leading up to it is really good.

I agree, the ending was a bit of a let down. It wasn't bad, but I expected more. I think everybody expected more.

It's difficult to explain why the ending is so bad without giving the goose away. It also makes you feel a little stupid for taking the time to read all those books.

This is about something else (ie. not the ending), but it's a spoiler nonetheless: [SPOILER - highlight to read]: I also thought the Stephen King within the story was a bunch of embarrassing crap. I started cringing every time he was part of the narrative. It was so unnecessary to do it.

hell yes.

I don't blame Steven King for the ending. He tells you right in the story to not read any futher because we all wouldn't like it.
