Re: The Stephen King Megathread
Finally to the point in The Waste Lands where I gave up on it ten years ago... and I made it a little further this time.
I don't know how any one gives up in that book.....I find that for myself, the earlier books are the high points and I generally fly through the first 4 books in no time flat. By the time I've hit The Drawing of the Three I'm in full speed ahead mode and nothing really slows me down until I get to the Wolves of Calla, about half-way through where it starts to be a bit more tedious to get through. Song of S. isn't bad to get through but parts of the The Dark Tower are also a bit slow as well.
Faced with the choice between changing one's mind and proving there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.
