Dark Tower 6

Previously in this blogolog I mentioned I was reading Steven King's Dark Tower series. I read volume 5 in less than a week.

Uncle Bill loaned me volume 6 two weeks ago (Song of Susannah) and warned me that it was hard going. I thought he was joking, but after two weeks I am still only on page 98. Aargh! I don't know, it's just kinda more of the same. Bit like Tolkien really. I don't think novels can really work when they're spread over several volumes and ultimately have 1,000-2,000 pages.

So reading the entire Dark Tower series has become a bit of a chore, I'm sorry to say.

Hopefully the final episode will be a much more gripping read.

I am pained to say I agree. I loved the series overall but "Song" was indeed slow going. It does take off about midway through the book and finishes in a sprint. Book 7 is really really good.
