Our Fantastic Favorites: The Dark Tower




My book-reading experience is defined by endings.  If I love 90% of a book, but the ending doesn't do it for me, I end up regretting having read it at all.  That's why I was so nervous when I approached the end of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series.  I couldn't put down books 1-6, and as I was reading book 7, I kept thinking, "I hope he doesn't blow the ending.  I hope he doesn't blow the ending."  I was not disappointed.  It was stupendous.

  2. I only thought the ending was OK because the next time, he does have his (spoiler alert) horn.
