I'm confused. Did King actually say his end was crap and not to read it?




The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

I liked the first book and Wizard and Glass. The rest really sucked. The junkie and the amputee psychotic chick ruined most of it for me. I actually liked the ending.

You're kidding yourself if you think this movie will do even the slightest bit of reverence to the books.

He warned the readers that the true end was messed up. Crap or not is a matter of personal opinion.

He also told folks to enjoy the end (at that point) for what it was and to journey no further. Repeatedly as I recall. Alas, many did not and read on past the proper ending of the series.

We've decided to go see this, but purely for entertainment, not trying to tie back to my favorite novel of all time.

Apparently, the movie isn't an adaptation of the novels. It's supposed to be a continuation from where the story ended. I guess that means all the people who've read the series can watch it without too much disappointment?

Well isn't that a neat trick. They can just reboot and try again, any time they please, and just say it's an extension of the original story. All they have to do is start with "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed..."
