Read the series The Summoner. Was really good. 8 of 10. The final 100 pages or so were so rushed but whatever. That's the only negative.

What about the other 2 books in the series? There is Wind through the keyhole and the revised version of The Gunslinger.

Without going into spoilers I count the revised GUnslinger as the last book in the series.

I don't get why the books 5,6 and 7 get so much hate. I can kinda get why the ending of book 7 gets some hate. But if you had read the first 4 books closely King had been leading up to the ending of Book 7 for a long time. There was clues all over.

One of the major Dark Tower websites correctly predicted the ending of book 7 right about the time book 5 came out.


Last book I read was Sick Little Monkeys the unofficial story of Ren and Stimpy. The author managed to get pretty much everyone that worked on Ren and Stimpy,besides John K,to talk to him. And there is lots of stuff revealed in the book I had never heard before. And I have read plenty of fan press,interviews and other stuff from various people that worked on Ren and Stimpy. It feels like I am one of the few people that read all the Ren and Stimpy articles in the short lived Wild Cartoon Kingdom magazine.

I loved this book as a teenager, probably because of all the dirty dirty sex that happened "off-camera".

Really? That's kind of cool. I read a lot of Stephen King novels too, but I preferred science fiction and fantasy.

I liked Foundation by Asimov. It's possibly the least colourful style of writing I have ever seen, like a scientific diary or something but it's somehow brilliant despite that.

Orson Scott Card is kind of insane & you might be referring to the Ender's Game movie, which was really just a hollywood money grab

I didn't find myself enthralled by Foundation.. started it about a month ago and read maybe half when it was the only book I had in Europe, now that I'm back amongst my own library I moved on to others

Forrest Gump - 7.5/10

Started off kind of like the movie and then veered drastically off. I still enjoyed reading it.

I quit smoking pot a few months ago so I've had to find things to do to fill that time I used to waste so I got myself a library card. I've been on a Stephen King movie kick so I've decided to go to his world and read as many of his works that I can.



3/5

This is a quick novella set in the 1970's in Castle Rock. Gwendy is a young girl who meets a mysterious man who bestows upon her a magical box with 9 buttons. 7 of which represent the major geographic areas on the planet and two others which represent "whatever she wants" or "total annihilation". The box also provides other "gifts" that help her throughout the short story. The book was written initially by King but once he hit a wall he sent it to Chizmar who added to it, send it back to King, and after a couple more trades they had a finished product. The chapters are very short, almost like an outline than an in depth depiction of events. I did enjoy it though, it spoke to me in a way that was very contemporary even though it was set in the 70's. I wouldn't describe the book as a scary, but rather intriguing and suspenseful. I finished the book in just over 2 hours so it doesn't take a lot of time, if you'd like something quick and fun I would recommend it.

I have "Needful Things" on hold at the library so I will jump into that soon. I'll probably go and pick up something else from King tomorrow.

I just finished about a month ago. Took me awhile to get going on it, but once I got past like page 100, I finished the book in 3-4 days.

I made sure that friends that had read the book did not tell me the ending. Loved the ending and it actually made my jaw drop.

Agreed, the book never had a flow to it. It was just like "eh" the entire time.

Although nothing will ever compare to when The Testament and the Brethren were back to back books for him. WOW
