Not to mention, I started reading the series over 20 years ago, and waiting for the next in the series became quite annoying. Maybe you'll have better luck now that there's no waiting.

I wouldn't comapre them to Harry Potter. Potter is just mind candy. Potter pulls you in, but in a different, "light" way. Nothing light about Roland.

I had a similar experience. Although I started reading them about 10 years ago. At first I thought the books were amazing. But the fourth was such a huge dissapointment I couldn't even finish it and haven't touched the series since.
