    Default Your order of the series.

    This is a thread to discuss your order of favorites of the series.


    Mine is -

    1. The Dark Tower

    2. Wolves of the Calla

    3. Song of Susannah - Wizard and Glass - The Wastelands - Drawing of the Three - The Gunslinger

    I love them all though. So even doing this was hard for me.

    It is very difficult to put these in order because that is saying that one isn't worth as much as the other.

    The first four:

    The Wastelands
    The Gunslinger
    The Drawing of the Three
    Wizard and Glass

    I see the last three books as one.

    5. The Gunslinger

    This is all being said with Wolves of the Calla being about 8 leaps and bounds ahead of all of the others, and The Drawing of the Three lagging about 3 miles behind the rest of the pack.

    it is. In the natural (not forced) order it is, as you can see, in second position, right after the Wolves, along with The Drawing and the Waste Lands.

    Ehhhh...hmmm, difficult, very difficult.

    As of right now (and it is bound to change), it is:

    1. Wizard and Glass
    2. The Dark Tower
    3. The Wastelands
    4. Song of Susannah/Drawing of the Three
    5. The Gunslinger
    6. Wolves of the Calla

    I seem to be one of the few members here who holds SoS in any high regard at all. Maybe it was because I was so dissapointed with Wolves, but I read through book 6 in a day, folks, that's how much it hooked me in. As afr as I am concerned, the magic of the second and third books is back with book 6, and that is why I love it so much. It is also why it is tied with book 2 on my list, because the two books read so similarly to each other, it's difficult for me to choose which one I like a little more.

    Oh this is so hard to choose...

    1. The Waste Lands
    2. Wizard and Glass
    3. The Gunslinger
    4.Wolves of the Calla
    5. The Drawing of the Three
    6. Song of Susannah
    7. The Dark Tower

    They are all so close though, they affected me in different ways too so its hard to try to put them in order.

    What happened to everyone arguing "read them in order. Don't start in the middle." Haha!

    I'm playing with the idea of the revised version of the Gunslinger as "book 8."

    1. The Gunslinger (original)
    2. Drawing of the Three
    3. Waste Lands
    4. Wizard and Glass
    5. Wolves of the Calla
    6. Song of Susannah
    7. Dark Tower
    8. Gunslinger (revised)

    The Drawing of the Three/Wolves of the Calla (sorry, I can't choose between them!)
    The Dark Tower
    The Wastelands
    Song of Susannah
    Wizard and Glass
    The Gunslinger
