My first thought was, he lied in every word

For those of you who are fans of Stephen King, the title of this post will look familiar. Of course, it is the first sentence in the first stanza of Robert Browning's "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" and the inspiration for the Dark Tower series of books that King has been writing over the last 30 years. Well, after 18 years of reading the series, I finished the last book last night, no I won't tell you what happened.

It's kind of funny but, as much as I have wanted King to finish these books, I feel sad that it's over. If you aren't a big reader you will never understand that. You really get into the characters in these books and then, it's over. Oh well, all things come to an end.
