    Let's see - since I just returned from vacation, I'm on the last cd of "The Drawing of The Three".

    Technically, not reading but still enjoying .

    My girl and I, when we road trip each summer - we bring the DT with us. It's been a tradition since our first summer together.
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.

    I am still somewhere near the beginning of DTVII. I took a break to read some other stuff for a bit.

    The reread is calling to me. . .but I have so much left to finish, It, EotD, Talisman, Black House, Salem's Lot and then The Long Walk (because you guys referred it to me and are so convincing ). It's really hard on my literary soul.

    I'm in desperate need of finishing the last half of tdt vii. I got to the point where
    Spoiler:
    Eddie dies and I haven't been able to go back and finish. I just couldn't stand reading about Eddie in so much pain. It filled me with such sadness knowing that this was just the beginning of much more pain to come.

    I've just finished The Gunslinger for the 2nd time as I make my 2nd round through the series.

    I found some answers (somewhat) but have more questions about the Man in Black which hopefully I can get resolved. I was hoping to find things easier this time through. I am, but the last palaver still has me a little confused about the origins of the Man in Black.

    I've gone through the palaver a couple of times but am moving on to The Drawing of the Three now.

    On my third trip to the Tower and just finished the gas station shoot-out in Songs and can't wait till the Dixie Pig. I didn't like Book VI much the first time around but it grows on me more and more each time I read it. Susannah and Mia's palaver at the wall-walk of the Castle on the Abyss is a horror to visualize.

    Letti, pay heed to how the story takes on a sense of urgency after the beam quake and once Eddie notices Susannah/Mia has run off. The Tower itself doesn't matter the slightest to him at this point. I havn't put enough thought into this to have any important opinions but I just love the transition.

    Cool thread. I just re-read Wolves, which is such a tricky novel. Every time, I feel differently about it. Started SoS last night.

    You don't need the revised.

    Well, it does make more clear TMIB story... I believe that's one reason that King did it.

    I'm reading the complete series for the third time. I just started The drawing of the three and I'm at the part where Roland and Eddie are together in the "sky carriage"

    I love that part a lot. And the way Eddie handles that situation... I felt he was a gunslinger at that time. A lost one but a good one.

    Roland would have understood.

    Totally agree, we knew from that point that Eddie had some steel in him. The drawing of the three is my favorite book and Eddie turns out to be my favorite character. The first time I read the series this book is the one that truly hooked me.

    Just finished today. And, of course, everything`s as usual:

    Spoiler:
    I just have to cry when Jake dies and Roland is burying him, and it breaks my heart when he first sees Susannah go through the door to New York and then in the end realizes he has to go through it all again. I really believe it`s the only end this story can have, but gee, it`s just so cruel!


    Now, I can`t wait to finally start the comic series - just hope my "gunslinger born"-Edition will arrive soon!

    I'm on chapter 6 in DT 7, for the first re-read (which is why I haven't been here) and I still get goosebumps at all the spots I did the first time. It's amazing how once you start it is real hard to stop.

    i finished my last reread of the tower series about a month ago so its still pretty early for me to start again. i am thinking about doing a complete reread of all the DT associated books. just finished Insomnia.

    Aye Insomnia is a real good read. the only problem that I ran into is the paper back copy I bought is missing about 25 to 30 pages about 3/4 of the way through it......this was me when I realized it.
    So I went to Barnes and noble found a copy that had the missing pages and read it in their comfy chairs...

    don't they have the best chairs there. i've spent many an hour in b&n reading. reread the long walk there as a matter of fact. and several king short stories actually.

    Yeah those chairs are amazing, if I thought no one would notice I would try to sneak out with one someday. It's really nice when I am there with my girlfriend or there is a B&N in a mall that we are in because I will let her go shopping and I will go read. Unless all the chairs are taken of course in wHich case
