About Stephen King

'At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time [specifically The Good, the Bad and the Ugly] and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of eight books, including The Wind Through the Keyhole, and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.' From the author's website.

It explores in the most of its course the subconscious realm of Susannah's mind in relation with Mia's. I experienced dogans todashes, control rooms, castles, haunted cities and all these in Susannah's quadruble or triple (if we exclude Odetta who is almost never actively there.) personality. The book was weird as a surrealist painting with many strange words, new aspects, characters and etcetera that confused me which I hope to learn in the last book of the series. I gave 5 stars to the fourth book (Wizard and Glass) because I liked the bitter-sweet love story of a young (or very young)couple. I gave 4 stars to the fifth book (Wolves of Calla) because the action was absent and I was bewildered with the vampiric New York scenes which were not entirely fitted in the rest of the story. It the end I gave 3 stars for books one two and this one because the first ones were sort of introductory and this again an introduction for the last book. The book had an absurd feeling like Pirandello's "six characters in search of an author" when Stephen King as a character encounters his characters which he wrote about. To conclude the book was weird, surrealistic, and absurdist. But it was interesting and avant garde that's why many people described it as a piece of ^&* more
