Comments of the Week 15: And the Gunslinger Followed

September 07, 2017 1 min read

After watching the well-acted Dark Tower movie (and the fact that I can only praise the acting tells you a lot about the movie) I decided to read the books all over again in order to wash the taste out of my mouth. Getting back into that universe again, starting over the journey with Roland and his Ka-Tet has been an absolute joy.

The books are incredibly well-written and the concept explored within the pages allow the series to be more original than others that I've read in the past ten past years. Balancing out all the different tones and ideas must have been a headache, yet the way each individual storyline, as well as the overarching quest is presented, makes everything feel natural and simple.

To be fair, this could be said about a lot of King's other work, from ItCarrie, Misery, Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me, Salem's Lot...they're all great pieces of literature in their own way and when you read great pieces of literature, you can't help but want to improve your own writing ability. 

Finding excellent writing is always fun and the same could be said for finding excellent comments; this, of course, is why you're reading this here today and why I'm even writing this. So sit back, relax, and let TheLimoMaker take you on a wonderful journey through the depraved comments of Destructoid!
