Just finished reading Wolves while on vacation in Mexico..so being I have the whole DT series on my e-reader I jumped righ into Song of Susannah..for me I did enjoy wizard and glass..loved The Gunslinger it hooked me..Drawing of the three stumbled me may times..didn' like that one....The Wastelands was good I enjoyed that one..now for Susannah
It is strange, although I am far behind most sk readers in terms of what they have read, the 10 or so that I have read seem to to either conform to what people like - my fave is IT, or be the polar opposite - I really didn't find the shining to be all that great, found it a decent story, but not a favourite. I als so called "lesser stories" like the langoliers and girl who loved tom Gordon.
As far as the dt series is going, I went into gunslinger with much caution, aware of its reputation, but came out thinking "what was all the fuss about?" I found it easy to read and really enjoyed it. Drawing of the 3 - which I have read a lot of people saying they did not like that one as it is too silly - is my favourite so far, I love it. Wastelands was an absolute chore for the first half, as they seemed to do nothing until they got to lud, my worst so far. W&g, started great, looked like we were making progress, then came the 600 page back story. This was a problem with me, not the book. I wanted to carry on down the path of the beam, and considered skipping it - what an idiot I would have been, turned out to be great. As for wolves, which I finished half an hour ago, a bad book? I have never heard such nonsense. I loved it.
I tend to enjoy them more after a break between books though, so I may hang back a bit first, read something like the body, or even a non sk book - I have Ronnie woods autobiography waiting to be read. Then jump into this crazy Blade runner-ish idea of the author's fictional setting being at the heart of the characters 'real world' - if that makes any sense.
Yeah, take a break for a while because once you start SoS you'll be turning the pages as fast as you can and hurdling toward the end of book VII. Trust me-been there, done that. It's a helluva ride! Enjoy it!!!
