I'd suggest reading the first three books and quitting there. And then probably wikipedia who dies by the end just to get some closure. Nothing was missed between the third book and here, except that I hated the series more with every book. Everything I loved in the first book to the second and third, he stripped away and turned into a stupid self analyzing, self worshipping piece of work. Absolutely nothing. It got dumber and dumber, with King writing himself into the series. Really? That's where I lost all care.I couldn't even finish this one. Had to stop halfway, and that'll be the end of that. I usually can't put down a book no matter how bad once I start, but this was a real exception.
I wasn't sure about this series initially, but it didn't take long before I realized that this series would be among my list of the best books of all time.
This journey, from the first line, has seen me through so much hardship. I have literally laughed and cried and mourned these characters as if they lived in my level of the tower. Thank ya big big Sai King.
King had to be on LSD. Character references way beyond a child level
Child belongs in mental ward for obsessive compulsive disorder. Don't waste money on this one.
Stephen stay out of the medicine cabinet.
It's been a long, long journey to finish all 7 books, but it's finally done. Stephen King has kept me entranced for many hours to get through all these books, and I have no regrets not that it's done other than its over. Roland, Oi, Jake, Eddie and Susannah will remain with me for years to come. Another classic and one of my favorite of Stephen Kings now.
