I also finished The Gunslinger by Stephen King. Yes I didn't enjoy it the first time round but this time I did. I'm not sure if it was because I loved the other books so much that maybe I was paying more attention to it. I knew that it was leading to a really great story and so I appreciated it more. I did find that this time round I felt more for the characters because I knew them from the other books. I felt sorry for Jake and Roland. At the same time I didn't particularly like Roland in this one. I'm glad I read it again.
I have now moved onto The Dark Tower by Stephen King which is the last book in the series. Wow, I have read two chapters and got a surprise in the first one already. I don't want to give anything away so I won't go into detail. Lets just say that part of what happened in the first chapter was a little unexpected. Maybe for others it was obvious but not for me.
