I'd been meaning to read the book for a while and having seen the book being mentioned here recently.. I thought as I was close to the end of another book that it should be my next read.. so hence my only just started it.. 2 chapters in at the moment..

.. is The Bridge also by Iain Banks? I'm not familiar with the book..

I certainly did. Smile

I also need to get these:

http://www.stephenking.com/DarkTower/the_graphic_novels.html

I've seen them in Waterstones but I'm going to wait untill I've read all the books. Aparently, JJ Abrams is going to be making the 7 Dark Tower books into 7 films.
