...be classified as SciFi or Fantasy. But have any of you read the Dark Tower series by Stephen King? I'm not sure how you would classify it, but it's a great read. A 7 book series, with 6 due out this summer and the final one in late fall. Anyways, I would recommend it to any who may not have heard of it yet.

I'm not sure actually. The first three were great books, the fourth one was pretty good. But the fifth one was dreadfull (could be because it was also the first one I read in English, I read the first four in Dutch, the irritating language used in the fifth one might have been altered in the Dutch versions) with irritating language, almost no storyline whatsoever, unbelievable and repetitive.

The series did pick up again with book 6, at least there was some story in that one, also much better tension build-up. And a decent cliff-hanger. But still, only so little actual story offered, makes me fear about part 7.

I heard that the final part is being considered the best of the series, it would have to be, to make up for the fifth part, lol.

Should have it next week, can't wait.
