12yo DS is an avid reader and has recently progressed to YA type books with some caution exercised from myself.
As he likes the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett the Gunslinger / Dark Tower series of books by Stephen King have been suggested to him. Neither my husband or I have read them but, as they aren't targeted at the YA market, we're wondering about their suitability.
I've had a look on Common Sense Media and a general Google but found most articles relating to the adaptation with Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba and conflicting advice regarding the books.
I appreciate everyone will have different personal guidelines for their own child but can anyone who has read them give me a general viewpoint? A bit of suspense/scary stuff fine, don't mind some violence if not too graphic or gratuitous, not keen on anything overly sexual for him at this age (and he would probably hate it too).
Gunslinger books for 12yo?
