@MrHenko I look forward to how it goes. I enjoyed the first book but for some reason never picked up the second. And I'm a long-time fan of Stephen King.

@MrHenko still one of my all-time favorite series.

@MrHenko One of the books I’ve read more times than I can count. The whole series is great, and there are many references to the world throughout the other books.

@jack I probably should recommend a book that I just started reading but just from the first few pages, and with The Gunslinger in fresh memory, it feels like that is something that I can actually do. If you're a King fan you'll probably also get way more than me out of the way the series is supposed to tie into his other works.

@bbohling It seems like a series that has touched a lot of people, so I'm really looking forward to progressing in it.

@furstenberg The fact that King used the series to tie more or less his entire bibliography together was one of the things that got me really interested in it when The Incomparable talked about it.

@MrHenko When I read it in the late eighties I had only read a couple of King books. So I didn’t know this at the time.

But this book made me collect all his books and you soon pick up small hints throughout.

@furstenberg That's kind of how I expect it to go for me as well, that The Dark Tower will be my gateway to King.
