Oberyn, hi again!
I definitely think you have to decide for yourself but you asked for my opinion so I gladly give it!
Before discovering AGoT the DT series was, hands down, my favorite! As I said above Drawing of the Three and The Wastelands are my favorites of them all. I even advise if you have not begun them to begin with Drawing then at some point going back to Gunslinger. Personally i think Susannah and Calla get kinda far off track but if you are as hooked as I think you will be by then it makes it okay!
The final book, Dark Tower, is awesome! I really did throw it a couple times!
I cried more than once.
And rejoiced for Roland, and his ka-tet, at the end!
IMHO any story that brings out that kind of emotion is the reason we love to read!
