So I'm rereading the Dark Tower series. And I think all of you should as well.

Come on, it's not like you have anything better to do. The Dark Tower is a truly epic adventure! And after all, if you didn't like it, you wouldn't be in a group for it would you? Exactly.

I've finished The Gunslingerand I enjoyed my second reading of it more than my first. There is SO much foreshadowing of events of come. And not even of events in The Drawing of the Three. I'm talking about foreshadowing of events in The Dark Tower. You know, endgame stuff. It's really shocking. I was surprised at how savvy Walter is; I'd forgotten how closely his fate was tied to Roland's.

Anyway, just thought I'd try to throw a small spark of life back into this community. A number of the founding members don't post to Livejoural anymore... but perhaps they still read it, and if so maybe they'll read this and be inspired to comment or write an entry.

I suppose ka will make it so, one way or another.

PS: I'm thinking I'll use this crazy new "tag" system in here. If you'd all be so kind as to tag the names of the books you talk about the most in your entry, that would be great.

James and I were actually talking about re-reading DT again together. I believe I heard you say once that you weren't going to re-read DT because it wasn't one of those things you could re-read. Why the change in heart?

I think the only reason I didn't want to read the series again was because I had no one to read it with. When I read it the first time, there were companions all the way through. You were reading it, Kaitlin was reading it, James had read it, I think Brian was reading it, and so on down the line. The series is so powerful that I felt like reading it alone would be too much. But now that I'm a little older and a little wiser (allegedly), I think I can probably handle it better. Plus Alyse is reading it as well. Plus I have this community to post to in case things get too heavy. I hope this answers your question.
