    I only know one reader (my daughter) who might read something this long based on my recommendation, and I think I lost her when I told her that DT was like a combination of the best thing I've ever read and the worst thing I've ever read, and that many of King's less desirable traits (with which I've familiarized her) were in full force in DT.
    Why?

    Because it looked like peace.

    Excellent. I have a few friends that need more friends like you… oh wait I could do that too.
    Yes, you could!

    Yeah, I'd say you pretty much ruined the chance of her giving that a go then, huh?

    Only two.
    Gordo my head chef, a long time ago, was the first...
    We read the books in tandem so was great to discuss.
    Col was the next, many years later, a chef who worked under me... all those years apart and still my love, desire, craze, passion, heart is still there for the best and worst books ever...
    I cant thank SK enough for giving me this gift...

    I have turned on three people to the DT

    One person hated it and never finished the Gunslinger.
    One person has already read the series twice and, like me, considers it the best series ever written
    One person was kinda meh, and petered out around Wolves of the Calla
