Despite having loved the second instalment of The Dark Tower (The Drawing of the Three), I've shuffled towards The Waste Lands. It has surprised me as I thought I'd have been much keener to dive in.
I think there are two factors at play. Firstly, after finishing Four Past Midnight I read Joe Hill's Horns instead of cracking on. It was a really good read and I'll take the opportunity to recommend it. You might as well swing by his website joehillfiction.com and follow him on twitter @joe_hill while you're at it.
Secondly, the cover for copy of The Waste Lands that I have is shit. It reminds me of those ridiculous illustrations on Jehovah's Witness pamphlets. I know it's a pretty standard sci-fi cover, but it's terrible. I'm sure John Avon doesn't care any.
That said, there's really no reason I shouldn't be buzzing off starting in on this book, so I'll shut up and get on with it.
