My (not so new) obsession!

I’ve been reading Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series for a while now. It’s taken me longer than it usually would to read them, but I’m picking up pace now a days.

I’m on book number five at the moment “Wolves of the Calla”, and these books just keeps on surprising me.

I’ve never read anything that that has made me as confused and as mesmerized as these books.

The mind of Stephen King is nothing short but amazing, and he is one of the authors that inspires my writing the most.

The story of Roland the Gunslinger takes you into different places of the world at different times. It’s a whirlwind of emotions and beautiful imagery.

It’s hard to say anything about the story line without giving too much away, and frankly it’s even hard to know where to start.

But the story revolves around Roland’s search for the Dark Tower, and the people that he meets along the way.

Roland as a person is a complicated person and quite a mystery that unravels a little bit at a time.


If you like western, fantasy and thrillers then here is a series of novels for you.

Let Stephen King take you to Roland’s world and spellbind you!

I highly recommend it!

    I haven’t tried the Dark Tower series, but I’ve loved everything I’ve read by King, so these are definitely on my to-read list 🙂

      If you’ve loved other things by King then I’m pretty sure you’ll love these as well 🙂

    What I find pretty interesting is that some people consider first 2-3 books as the most surreal of them all and actually Stephen king admitted himself that he had been using psychedelic drugs (as far as I remember LSD and Mescaline) and drinking heavily while writing those books.

      While I have to say that I don’t approve of using drugs “for artistic reasons”, the outcome in this case was pretty good 😛
      And I wasn’t really surprised to find out these things either. It actually explains a lot 😛
