the man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed...

probably the best opening line to the best series of books in the world

care to elaborate?
#2
yes.

the ending pissed me off though
If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5,
then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, the Devil is 6,
And if the Devil is 6,

then God is 7, then God is 7, then God is 7

That's exactly what I thought when I opened that book. I've yet to finish the series though, I've not been reading them in any order. I started with Wolves of the Calla, then Song of Susannah and then The Gunslinger =s

bad decision. the only one you can really read out of order is The Wizard and the Glass (i think that's the name of it)

i'm currently on book 6, song of susannah, such a good series, probably my favorite of all time
and you really have to read the all in order, for it to make perfect sense, even wolves of the calla has parts that you only understand if you've read 1-4 before it

I'm near the end of the third book, The Wastelands, about to start Wizard and Glass. So far, I'm loving the series.
Does anyone know the song that goes: ba ba bah, ba ba buh, bu ba bum, ba ba bah, ba bu buh, bu bu bum, bu ba bu bu bum baam?
#9
Definitely one of my favorite book series. Im about to start on the 4th one as soon as I can get a copy of it. Loved the Gunslinger.

Btw Marvel Comics did a mini series that is sort of a prequel to the gunslinger, and I think they're working on another one. Definitely worth looking into if youre a fan of the series

The Gunslinger, by Stephen King, is the first book of a seven book series The Dark Tower. It follows the adventures of Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger, and his quest to reach the top of the Dark Tower in an unspecified time when the world is in ruins. Throughout his travels, he meets several people whom he befriends and teaches the ways of gunslinging as they help him reach his goal. He encounters many obstacles, the greatest of which is the Man in Black, who is the anti-gunslinger, although it is revealed later that he is working towards the same goal as Roland. The Gunslinger tells Roland's adventure through Tull and how he came to meet and betray Jake and is a worthy beginning to the truely epic series.

not for me. the more i ponder the ending the more i love it. it is really the only way that it could of ended if you think about it. I was about to make a Dark Tower discussion thread, but I guess i was beaten to it.

any questions regarding the Dark Tower can be pmed to me, I will answer them all to the best of my ability

It was the best of times and it was the worst of times...

Is the best opening I think.

Best opening=Lolita.

Me too. To be honest, I loved the first 3 books, the first especially. However, following the third book, I found them to be rather dissapointment, Wizard and the Glass and The Dark Tower especially. I found the ending, though somewhat fitting, to be quite... anti-climactic, especailly considering I waited so long to read that final chapter.

Stephen King endings ALWAYS suck. I'm not a fan of his at all anyway.

The Waste Lands was my favorite. I liked the last ones, but he could have done much more with them. However, I do admire the ending.

I've read them all a few times, still my all-time favorite series to-date.
