ContraSK hasn't finished writting the whole series yet

After the long hard journey, Roland the gunslinger finally reaches the ocean, as far west as he can go. He sleeps on the beach but awakens to find a ‘lobstrosity’ trying to eat him alive. I like the word Stephen King has invented to describe these terrifying creatures. It conjures...

“ The plot thickens”

published 22/07/2004

Prothe second installment of a fantastic epic

Contrawaiting to read the rest

Okay I just finished reading this one last night and thought I would give it a go and see if I could do it justice. I do not want to spoil this book for anyone so I am only really going to comment on the main features of the plot, which believe me still leaves a lot for the reader to discover for...

Stephen King is well known as the master on modern horror, but he also branches out and some of his books cover science fiction, suspense thrillers, and fantasy. The Dark Tower series is an epic piece of work, compiled over several decades. This book, The Drawing of the Three, is the second in...

Pro More character development and a better flow

Contra Means you may just have to buy the next one!!

So I get this free box-set through the post from my book club, and after noting that it was Stephen King, I cancelled my subscription and shoved the set under the bed... I mean, Stephen King? I'd always heard positive things about the author, but invariably it was because the guy writes scary...

ProDraws you in and holds you

ContraOne day there won't be anymore DT books. :-(

Without giving too much away or going over ground covered in other ops the basic story is that of Roland, the last Gunslinger, of which there was once a whole "race", trying to reach the Dark Tower (Dark Tower) set in the fantastical land of Gilead. This book (The second in a series of 7)...

ContraEddie is whiny and annoying

I found this book to be engrossing and a lot more reader-friendly than the previous instalment -The Gunslinger. Where The Gunslinger focused on being stylish this book concentrated more on telling a good story and the reader can clearly note the difference in King's writing style and the passage...

ContraStill another 5 books to read...

I have now read the first 5 in the Dark Tower series and I definitely enjoyed this one the best so far. The imagination of Stephen King - I just could not put this book down. I just had to find out what happened next - because this is a fantasy world (Roland's world - not New York!! (-:) I am not...

I love Stephen King & I especially love the Dark Tower series, I can't understand why they haven't made any films yet (unless I just haven't heard of them). This book introduces new characters to the series and Stephen King does fantastic as always. You really get to know the characters and feel...
