    So glad I’m not the only one who thought this was boring. I’m stuck right now on book #4 — the first time I read Roland’s backstory I thought it was interesting, but right now I just want to get on with the quest for the Tower and don’t care about what happened way back when with Susan. Dreading book #6, but to make things interesting I plan on going back and adding in Salem’s Lot and maybe parts of Hearts in Atlantis and Everything’s Eventual for the bigger picture.

  2. Ooh, good luck on book #4…that one was brutal. Salem’s Lot is one of the few SK books that I’ve never read, so I think I’m going to add it to my reading list. I just started the last book in this series and am hoping it’s not another 1000+ pages of boring. At least #6 wasn’t as long.

    If you can get your hands on a copy, read the title stories in both Hearts in Atlantis and Everything’s Eventual — they deal directly with book 7. So does Insomnia, but I hated that book, so Im going to ignore it’s importance.

    Book 7 is definitely better than 6…even if most people have mixed feelings about the very end.

    And Salems Lot is a good one — very old school Stephen King. And getting the backstory on Fr. Callahan is nice, too.

  4. I have a copy of Everything’s Eventual somewhere…I read it a LONG time ago. I’ll have to see if I can find it. I tried to read Insomnia years ago too, but gave up on it.
