    There is one quote that I still remember quite well from that novel: "It was enough to make a body ashamed of the human race."

    If you like the first ones.....




    That series only goes uphill from where you left off.

    If you did leave of at Wizard and Glass, a book which I first found slow, then slowly captivating and ultimately tragic.

    Every time I happen to see Clint Eastwood, I picture Roland, and the other way around.

    Robin Furth is dialoging the Dark Tower graphic Novel.

    Furth wrote the concordincies pertaining to King's Dark Tower, the concordincies being two volumes covering everything there is to know about the world of the Dark Tower, the events of the novel and King's inspirations which formed his 7 book series.

    Definetly worth checking out if you are a Dark Tower fan like me.

    I just visited family up north near Ft. Myers, Florida and we spent most of time at a super flea market. There were tons of books being sold! Most of them I had either read already or owned for future reading. The novels I did purchased were two by Bentley Little: The Resort and The Association. :)
