  1. I am reading the Dark Tower series , having completed the wizard and glass (review here – https://ablogaboutbook.wordpress.com/2016/12/24/a-disappointing-turn-of-events-book-review-wizard-and-glass-by-stephen-king/) only last week , Earlier i had wanted to finish the series by the end of 2016 but that hope is gone for now . I dare say Dark Tower series has been very inconsistent for me , I really disliked the first book (although after reading the next 2 books i did come to like it in hind sight) , then liked the next 2 books but really felt like the Wizard and glass was a meh book 😦

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Oh such a shame you didn’t enjoy book 4, I personally loved it, but as a flashback novel it does move away from the present story. Oh well! Are you going to continue reading?? Happy new year 😀
