I'd hate to see The Dark Tower dumbed down by mainstream Hollywood with stupid casting decisions, a ridiculously gutted story with half the plot points taken out, focus on special effects more than story and characters, cheesy special effects, etc....
Exciting. I`m in the middle of book 5 now and I love it.
I don`t know how they are going to put all together into three films. The script has to be perfect and the casting also has to be perfect. Imagine Roland played by an lousy actor. It will ruin it at...

Yes itīs definitely a hard book to read. I remember that the first part was unstable but then it turned out to be one of his best. If you haven`t read The Stand I really recommend it.
