I love Stephen King’s work. I cut my apocalyptic teeth on The Stand, and It scared the crap out of me. But somehow, I never read the seven-volume Dark Tower series, widely considered King’s crowning masterpiece. How did that happen?
So…want to read it with me?
Beginning in May (I’ll give you the start date when I have it), I will be “publicly” reading the entire seven-volume series of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. We’re going to read 1-2 chapters a week. It will take at least a year.
So, here’s how it will work. Each week, I will read a chapter or two and post a recap on Tor.com along with my inane ramblings, wonderings, and comments–which will give me a tremendous opportunity to humiliate myself before the legions of Stephen King fans who HAVE read The Dark Tower series. So I’ll need some non-humiliating friendly faces–I hope you’ll join me and read along. We’ll start with the first one, The Gunslinger, which only has five chapters so I’ll be doing one chapter a week.
I’m not reading ahead, which would be cheating, so I’ll be responding to things in “real time” without any knowledge of what’s going to happen.
In the meantime, any other Stephen King fans out there? Have you read The Dark Tower series? Want to join the fun?
