After reaching page 120 I have given up on King's The Gunslinger. What a lousy book. The first page was deceptively awesome. It had a good story idea but became increasingly boring. The book takes itself too seriously. Perhaps with more humor it could have pulled some of the scenes off. Maybe in the future I'll give King's fiction another try. But The Gunslinger is a big pass for me.
