Well, I cruised through the first 3 Dark Tower books, and now I'm making a more earnest attempt at book 4, which should be a lot easier since I'm as freshly caught up as I can be. They're good, but not great - I think sometimes SK spends too much time writing about details that aren't as important as he thinks they are, and he sets up plot elements so far in advance that by the time they're finally relevant I'm pretty much exasperated. (That sentence doesn't make any sense. I know what I mean.) He also has this tendency in pretty much every book he's ever written to have at least one character (in this case, Eddie) who speaks purely in wisecracks and pop culture voices. Too many times have I wanted to slap Eddie around.
Oh, and Mussina rocked the house last night.
