Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” Volume 1 “The Gunslinger”.
And I honestly don’t remember reading it! I read volume I through IV several years ago and then waited with baited breath- I mean eyes- for the rest of the story… when I had all but given up, the last three stories were published in such quick succession that I didn’t get a chance to read one before the next one came out. Then when I booked my hospital date with my surgeon I thought I’d buy the three new ones for my hospital stay- and then decided I would rather buy and re-read the lot since it had been so long since I read them originally. I then bought the first three books in the series, and found another two books on sale and quickly bought them too. I’m still short a couple, but I think I maybe bought one or two on the internet a couple of weeks ago- but I was high on Gaviscon and I can’t remember too lekker- I must track down the delivery details, teehee! I have now started the second book “The Drawing Of The Three” and am again completely captivated The second one rings more bells than the first one- but they’re all revised and extended and I’m thoroughly enjoying them!
I tell you- I am absolutely loving these books even more than I did the first time I read them! I highly recommend them to anyone who has contemplated fantasy fiction but is not too hot on the classic fantasy story witches and dragons and so on. This story is realistic enough to keep you hooked too!
