    If you do a search for Dark Tower, you should find lots of things about it, but I would say yes. It's one of my favorite works. Can't wait until Sep 21ish.

    You've got a long wait there. These books are on my very short "Buy as soon as it hits the shelves in hardback" list.

    You've learned a valuable lesson: Never loan out a book that you wouldn't want lost or destroyed.

    I suppose I have but the only reason I lent them out was because one of my colleagues said he had Wizard and Glass and it was diffrent from any other King book he had read so naturally I asked him if he had read the others in the series he didnt realise it was part of a series so I lent him the others when he returned them someone else asked if they could borrow them and I couldnt say no she returned the first but hadnt found the time to read the others

    I've only read the first three. The Gunslinger and The Drawing of the Three are good, but The Wastelands is absolutely fantastic!!
