I’ve been a big fan of Stephen King since I was a kid and found It on my dad’s bookshelves one boring summer day. Of all the King books I have read, my favorite series is The Dark Tower. I drive a lot for my day job and I listen to the unabridged versions on Audible. I am down to the final book after reading the very first book decades ago.
The Dark Tower series has eight books in it, and this box set is the first time all eight have been gathered together into a single collection.
The thing that I like is how so many worlds King has created come together in these books. If you haven’t read them I won’t give it away at all, but you need to read them. It’s a long read at 4,720 pages total but it’s some of the finest reading you will ever do. A movie is coming based on these books too. I hoped they would choose Clint Eastwood’s son Scott Eastwood for The Gunslinger, but I still think the flick will be awesome with Idris Elba as Roland, even though King makes it clear he’s an Eastwood type in the books
You can get the full box set at ThinkGeek for $147.99(USD).
