    The Dark Tower (series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I haven't read it so I can't give an opinion on it...
    It's decent. I'd say that up to Wizard and Glass, it's actually very, very good, and decreases in quality from there. I swear the quality of the Dark Tower series directly coincides with his attempts to sober up.

    A new book (The Wind Through the Keyhole) in the series came out this year, and I haven't had a chance to read it. It's shoehorned between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla. I actually like how the series as a whole ended -- it felt right -- but the way it got there was dubious at best, and eyerollingly bad at worst, with random villains showing up whose only purpose seemed to be to give a meaningful death to an Important Character. Except that I had no attachment to the villain, so that death...not so meaningful.

    But Drawing of the Three is one of my favorite books of all time, and Roland and Eddie are two of my favorite literary characters of all time. I listened to the Gunslinger on a drive to and from Chicago/St. Louis. It makes excellent driving material.

    • Can I hijack your thread Panda? I was wondering if you had a reader that was familiar with renaissance faire/renaissance era clothing and could PM me so I don't clog up your thread? I'm having trouble shopping.

        Okay, back to reading my way through this incredible journal...
        Hi RaeVynn!!! I hope you enjoy the book!

        And I also hope my laptop doesn't freeze so I can post this . . . the Panda Computer always gets fussy and unpredictable during Lady Friend's Eight-Hour-Long Magical Back-Up Spells. (I told you that eye of newt is expired, Lady Friend!)

          • Okay, I'm up to page 195 (post #1950), but I just had to pause to tell you that I couldn't resist: I've grabbed "Mother's Little Helpers" from B&N for my Nook.

            I'm reading through this journal as fast as I can... while savoring all the GP wittiness! By the time I've caught up.... well, I feel like I know you already.

              • Gay Panda is going on a road trip.

                I’m going to let you think that the road trip is for some fabulous reason*, and that I can’t wait to leave** and the excitement is killing me***. I haven’t quite figured out how to write two thousand words a day for NaNoWriMo when I’m driving from Nebraska**** to the Magical Bamboo Forest. Multi-tasking is not one of my strengths. Maybe Lady Friend can describe exactly what I look like when my brain glitches if presented with more than one task at a time.

                Eating on road trips used to be easy. I simply waited until I saw a sign shouting TACO BELL and then I pulled in for two bean-and-cheese burritos and a nice cold soda. Or I played chicken with my hunger to see how far I could go before eating, because (much like how I hate being interrupted when I’m writing) I hate being interrupted when I’m driving. I want to get to my destination, not stop to see the world’s biggest ball of twine or get gas or visit a restroom or sit in a restaurant or stop in a hotel to sleep. But this is not a responsible way to travel. Everyone must see the world’s biggest ball of twine. It’s part of road safety.

                Eating primally on road trips is hell. One can only approximate. A soggy, lettuce-wrapped and anemic patty from In-n-Out; limp string cheeses that have been sitting in the back seat for too long in the heat; nuts and seeds and jerky. In a restaurant one can acquire chicken or beef, and most of the time, it’s in an unspeakable condition. So was the “salad” I once received. “Salad” is in quotation marks because it consisted of one large lettuce leaf and one cherry tomato. That was all. I’m tempted to fast from Nebraska to the Magical Bamboo Forest, but much like skipping the world’s biggest ball of twine, that is irresponsible.

                After all, the economy is struggling, and it’s my job to prop it up with the purchase of a hormone-laden farmer-abused chicken hooter that’s been beaten into two dimensions and sprinkled with bread and trucked halfway across the universe to rest on a truck stop restaurant plate next to a fork that has crust between the tines. I’ll ask for a clean fork, but the waitress will already be grumpy that I’m just drinking water, and somehow she will know that I mocked the world’s biggest ball of twine in this blog and every employee in the back will rub swine flu on the new fork before she brings it out to me. They keep swine flu in a container back there for obnoxious customers like Gay Panda.

                • UPDATE: (in explanation of *, **, ***, and ****)

                  * It isn’t.
                  ** I can.
                  *** In truth, what’s killing me is a combination of NaNoWriMo and mosquito bites.
                  **** Oh, yes, jealous one, you read that right. Nebraska. It’s like Hawaii’s little landlocked sister.

                      I'm much more obnoxious in real life.

                      I should have just accepted long ago that I couldn't write stories of the right length for sci-fi/fantasy magazines. It isn't my skill. Toys was a rotten egg of a short story and Mother's Little Helpers needed to be a little longer to be any good. I hope you enjoy that one!

                        • Dearie me, I've made it!

                          Woo Hoo!

                          Iodine, Kardashians, the King, and road trips! At our house, it is the pixies that hide stuff, and who keep our cat amused/annoyed.

                          I think my downfall is fruit. I love fruit. Comes from my days when I was a raw vegan, I'm sure. I have a very hard time resisting the lure of ripe stone fruit, or figs, or berries...

                          Gay Panda, I love you. I don't care in the least what your DL says your gender is. However, it does make it hard to describe this thread to my husband... but he does get it, and has laughed at my descriptions as we've driven places.

                          Okay, that's enough for now... I have to go get ready to take a proctored exam for my Accounting course.
