Just read the entire "Dark Tower" Series. It's Stephen King's masterpiece. Unless you don't like one of the books in this series, you'll probably like them all.

Stephen King's magnum opus! Part western, part post-apocalyptic, part fantasy, part revenge trip and 100% an epic quest to save the multiverse. Very few series have held my attention so tightly as this. This series draws ideas, characters and themes from many, if not all of King's other works. If you are a fan of the author, then this is a must read. Truly a master piece.

The start of the truly epic Dark Tower series, in my opinion King surpassed the books that he wanted to emulate. Taking the themes of spaghetti westerns and the grand scale of books like Lord of The Rings. Take your first steps with Roland on his quest to find the elusive Dark Tower.

One of Stephen King's best novels ever written. Best Stephen King series written. Need I say more.
