    Talking in spoilers must be frustrating to the casual reader of this thread.

    I liked your response, srboone, and it may prove to be a wrinkle in my theory, but possibly not.

    Spoiler!


    I could be completely wrong here, and I wouldn't be surprised if I am, but I feel that this is one of many possibilities.

    I voted Drawing if the Three, because of the different eras that are beloved characters are pulled from and the introduction of the characters themselves, Eddie, Odetta, Detta and finally Susannah. Even Mort was a twisted little piece of mania. And the scenes with Roland experiencing our world(?) through the eyes of junkie Eddie Dean.

    Good points all; and writing them down in posts like these helps refine them for all involved. Here's my take on the HoE:

    I'm getting the urge to take the DT journey again...

    A little bit, but it also makes catching up go a lot faster too.

    Do you think it'd be better to read just this one HC, or start at book one? I'll have to look again at that on Amazon because I'm not sure it contains the entire 7 books. How could it? I finally finished FDNS, now I'm not sure what to do. Read Joyride by Ketchum, or start the DT series?? I really don't know if I could actually read such a huge amount of fiction. If I read one, I'd have to read the rest or I'd forget what's in the first book.

    If you don't want to read that much fiction then I'd go with Joyride, which is a very good book as well.

    I'd go for Ketchum if I were you. If you want to read the DT series you should really be determined to do so - it's a loooooooong ride.
    And of course you don't just read The dark Tower (I mean, the 7th book), do start at the beginning.

    When would you suggest reading The Little Sisters of Eluria?

    I read LSoE right after The Gunslinger, which I think is a pretty good moment to read it.

    I feel that it can be read anywhere to be honest because it doesn't have any direct impact on the 7 main books, but i personally waited untill the end so that i had the charater of Roland fully understood (or as understood as i ever will achieve). I really like the story & am always craving for more stories set in the world of the tower.

    I read "Little Sisters of Eluria" last and I thought it was a fitting time to do so, though it can be reasoned that any time is right, just as long as you don't start with it. Even though it's a prequel to the seven volume series, it was written as though the reader should already have some idea about the nature of the Dark Tower quest and of the character Roland. Reading it prior to the other books would probably be a little confusing.

    Well, I've read the entire series already, so I should be ok; I just wasn't sure what other people thought (because I have not read LSofE, yet.)

    Then you have not forgotten the face of your father, so you should be content.
