Dama’s family and I are having a garage sale tomorrow and I would appreciate any and all help you could signal boosting this craigslist post as Dama’s family is hard up for rent and most of the things we have worth selling arent feasible to sell online due to shipping costs.

You are absolutely right, The Gunslinger can be a very difficult book to get into if you have no concept of the larger picture spanning the next six books. Hell, the author himself admits to asking new readers to stick with the series past book 1 even if it doesn’t grab them right off the bat. He knows it’s a hard sell and very different from the others.I love hearing that you were in the “loved it the first time” camp, because I actually wasn’t! I am the biggest fucking fan of the series, got my tattoo and everything— but it took me a month to pick up Drawing after finishing Gunslinger (compare that to the two weeks it took me to read 2-7 back to back and you see how strange that seems to me now).Here’s the thing Dark Tower newcomers: almost every line of The Gunslinger is tooled to foreshadow Roland’s journey. King did a lot of revising in that book, and some conceptual backtracking in his later books to make the pieces fit, and he makes it all fit perfectly. You just can’t see it until you’ve seen the picture in its entirety. And that’s where you might get stuck if you just dive in without knowing that Book 1 is an intentionally strange and vague prologue.The Gunslinger is confusing as balls. And it’s a base breaker. On first read, you either love the book for its tone and atmosphere and ambiguous nature, or you are frustrated with it for the same reasons.Regardless of how you feel about The Gunslinger, my only advice to any newcomers to the series is keep reading past book 1. Do NOT stop after The Gunslinger. Either you hate The Drawing of the Three as well and have to admit that the series just isn’t for you, or you have your life changed by finishing the books and then rereading The Gunslinger with the veil pulled back.Seriously, if you’re able to function properly after reading book 7, pick up The Gunslinger again and then come tell me what you think afterwards.
