Goodbye Gunslinger, For Now

Well after a few good months and getting two books ahead I started reading the third book in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series.

The story of Roland, the last gunslinger, and his companions is interesting, but it is EPIC.  Not only in length (I still have five books in the series to read in my future) but in content.  A lot is happening in the book and all of it feels like it is important to remember to understand the whole story.  I’m not a stranger to epic stories in fantastical fictional worlds, but even though I was loving learning more about the characters and enthralled by their quest the reading could be draining – especially since I was doing most of it at night before bed.  It took me over a month to finally finish The Waste Lands and I’ll get back to that world someday but now I’m ready for something different.  I picked a Chick-Lit-y book with a little Downton Abbey inspiration and it seems to be doing the trick, I’ll tell you more about it in my next update.
