    read them. a couple of them are superb (wizard and glass, the waste lands) some are so so (song of sussanah, wolves of the calla.) altogether though its a great story. its worth the read just for getting to wizard and glass. i would recommend. also for extra credit read 'the talisman'. its co-authored by king and peter straub. its where he first starts playing with the idea of the setting for the dark tower series.

    idk, i keep hearing they are good. But read the first like 20 pages and fell asleep. It has good imagery and wording, but it's just way too fucking boring/confusing to me. It's sort of like reading the matrix * 5. Starts in the middle of no where, but I guess after you read it all, it makes sense.
