The Dark Tower, Book 7- The Dark Tower, Part 2, Chapter 11

Hey there everyone. I'm here with the next installment of The Dark Tower, and I'm going to warn you right now about my reaction to what I'm sure was supposed to be an emotionally affecting chapter: I am not here for this nonsense. I do not believe it's true. I think King is too much of a coward to really kill a main character this way, and the constant, unending foreshadowing just made me roll my eyes and believe in it even less. I really wish that I didn't feel this way. I honestly do, because I would love to be able to just let myself enjoy the book for what it is supposed to be, and for what it has been to so many of you. But I'm really finding it hard to hide my contempt for King at this point, after he has shit on so many of my expectations and squandered so many opportunities to make things matter. I really do apologize to those of you who were looking forward to this moment and maybe hoped that I would feel something, or simply to those of you who love this series and want me to love it, too. I wish I could get past some of this, but it is what it is, and I have to be honest about how I feel so...there it is. I'm annoyed, I'm impatient, and I'm disappointed. I really hope that there's something coming up soon that will get me back on board with all of this. Thanks for listening, and I will see you next week!
