Song of Susannah
In my last post I noted that I was working on a couple other books prior to attempting to finish The Dark Tower series..... well, we can see how that worked out. I need to always bring the book I'm reading whenever we go out of town rather than just the Nook. We went out for my birthday last month and went out this weekend for a small family reunion. That just got the ball rolling for Song of Susannah (The Dark Tower, Book 6) and allowed me to finish it up. I'm now working on World's End, The Heroes, The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower, Book 7), and some baby book to attempt to learn something about the labor. I'm hoping to help in some measure, but without seeing all other stuff. =|
The Song of Susannah was an interesting read of Stephen King's Dark Tower series. It definitely wasn't my favourite by any stretch. I have a problem with inserting the author into his own book. It might be a great way to push the story along, a way to advertise, or a little bit of an ego trip. We learn a little bit about the story, but progression was a little slow. It seems that it was more about telling a few bits to make sure the last story finally comes together. We'll see if it works.
If you've gotten this far in the series then you know that it's going to be worth it to finish....... it has to be worth it!!
Rating: 5 CBs - better in the series.
