'The Dark Tower novels have a magic all of their own. At the heart of the Dark Tower novels sits the Dark Tower itself, a magnificent magical/technological structure which is the linchpin of the time/space continuum. From the Tower a traveler could reach any where or when of his choosing. This includes our world, and any of the many parallel earths that Stephen King writes about in his fictions.'
I have to begin by saying that Stephen King, no matter what other people say, is worthy of going down in history as one of the best authors in his genre. Actually how do you even classify Stephen King's genre? Yes he writes horror sometimes or thriller but it's mixed with a different kind of flavor. It's his own flavor. That's why I would personally give Stephen King his own genre. I mean, he's definitely written enough books to have his own genre.
Honestly I haven't read 'The Dark Tower' yet but I wanted to write a wishlist post for it since it's high up on my to-read-list and should be for you too! On top of that there's a series coming up in July with Idris Elba (Star Trek Beyond) and Matthew Mcconaughey (Interstellar) which I'm pumped about. I absolutely love those actors.
'The Dark Tower' is bound to be good since it took a total of 42 years to put together. With a total of eight books and 4,250 pages, it's what King calls his magnum opus.
There's one more thing that really excites me about these eight books and that is because of one my all-time favorite T.V. series based many of its events and characters off of these books. Can you guess what it is?
The Dark Tower series is something that I'm going to be looking into and maybe I won't even watch the series before I read the books but for sure eventually I will be doing both and I'll do my best to update you on my progress for each.
PS. If you have read any of these books leave a comment about what you thought of them and even better make some comparisons to Lost if you've seen that as well.
