Lyre is focusing on her daily kittens
I’ve come to realise that it wasn’t The Dark Tower itself that made me stall before finishing the series. It’s Stephen King. Damn, but I hate the way he writes.
Having said that, I actually did really enjoy this book. I kind of wish it hadn’t been all supernatural and unexplained and whatever, but well, it’s Stephen King. And it was way too long and padded, but then, I read the extended version. So basically, it delivered on what it promised, and it did so very, very well.
I think I’m more prepared to finish The Dark Tower, now that I’m more aware of the King-isms. I can kind of forgive them because I know they’re unavoidable. I can just sigh, say “Oh, Stephen,” and move on.
