    INTRODUCTION A few things you should know before deciding how helpful this review will be for you. I think the Dark Tower series as a whole is a staggering achievement and belongs in any discussion without qualification of the Greatest Fantasy Series of All Time There are no spoilers in this review but I have

    Please don t hate me I know it seems sacrilegious to give a Stephen King anything less than 4 stars, but this one was SLOOOOWWWW for the first 75% That s not to say I didn t enjoy it, but I did find this was an easy book to put down and not feel an urgency to jump back into for days at a time I ve heard many folks
