My Journey to the Dark Tower
I recently decided to start reading the Dark Tower series but wanted the full experience so I got some recommendations and compiled a list of books relevant (hopefully!) to the extended lore. This book 3 on that list.
As the first book that actually deals directly with the Dark Tower, I can’t say I’m wowed. I found my self pretty bored most of the way through. It’s a long walk through a hot desert and a long trip through a dark tunnel and memory lane. There are a couple points where the Gunslinger has some psychedelic experiences and I can say with confidence from my own experience that the author is writing from his own experience. So that was cool. Otherwise, as dry as the desert he’s walking through. I’ve got a desert in my brain now. So I guess that’s a nod to effective writing.
Spoiler. Still no Dark Tower. If this guy’s journey is any indication, it’s going to be a while before I get there.
Didn’t enjoy it
The world is ugly, the characters are uglier. Stephen King’s writing flows and is as descriptive as ever, but I really couldn’t get into this one.
The first half of the book drags, and the mystery of it all wasn’t enough to make the latter half worth it. The writing is oddly sexual in a lot of places to the point where a child describes his own mother as “scrawny but in a sexy kind of way” and it all gives the story as weird and uncomfortable tone. Also the way women are written in this book is terrible.
Every time I started to emotionally connect to Roland as the protagonist, he’d do something to completely disconnect him from anything likable.
A lot of people seem to really like this series, and maybe it gets better in other books, but I don’t think I’ll be reading more to find out.
The movie is just like the book. Thanks Stephen King 😁😁😁
Read the Whole Series- Wish I Could’ve Read More
By NEKOSAN IS BEST
Read the title. Not in the mood for writing the 20 paragraphs of praise this epic deserves, but this is one of King’s earlier books, and they still excite beyond comprehension. Too bad they made an awful movie about it. Recommend this series to anyone
I could not put it down. Deliciously disturbing and bleak. Like drinking a fine malbec of horror.
I had to stop after 75 pages of complete nonsense. It makes no sense, nor is there a coherent plot to speak of. I usually like Stephen King, so I would try one of his other novels.
Unique world. Tremendous character and world building. Finished it in two days. Couldn’t put it down.
