    This book was written over 80yrs ago, and surprisingly the scifi element of it does not feel out of date! - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_New_World

    You've got your work cut out for you there!

    The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger (1982) – 224 pages
    The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three (1987) – 400 pages
    The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands (1991) – 512 pages
    The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass (1997) – 787 pages
    The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla (2003) – 714 pages
    The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah (2004) – 432 pages
    The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower (2004) – 845 pages
    The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole (2012) – 336 pages

    I've gone thru all 1-7. Some are fabulous, where others are a little mundane.

    Maybe you should read Blaze before undertaking these?

    Yeah really enjoying it so far! Fair enough the timeline seems very misplaced now seen as we aren't fighting space wars even now 17 years after the book is set, but other than that it's brilliant! It was reading news that there was a film coming out that prompted me to read the book as the plotline sounded interesting.
