The Dark Tower

I love Stephen King books. I love 'em. Started back in HS when Joseph let me borrow "Needful Things" and I've been hooked ever since. I knew that he had written the 'Dark Tower' series, but didn't give 'em much thought since I knew they weren't horror/thriller/suspense type books. Then in one of the short story compilation books, one of the short stories was based off of the Dark Tower books. I read it, and I liked it. I thought to myself, "Well, I guess I could give 'em a shot." Of course, being a series, I wanted to start with the first book and I couldn't ever find it! I checked stores and libraries, the only place I could find it was online, which really didn't do me much good. About a month or so ago, my mom got one of those little order form thingies that had the whole series in there. I told her that if she just had to get something, she could get me the first two and then I could work from there. This crazy woman bought the whole bloody series! (Saved $40 or something by ordering 'em all together) So now I have 7 books to plow through. lmao I'm about halfway through the first one (Hey, only took me 2 1/2 days to read "Cell") and I'm liking it. It took a while to get the hang of how things worked, since it's not present-day Earth based, but I think I've got it pretty well figured out. I'm wondering if he's really gonna sacrifice that kid . . . . .
