I loved the first Dark Tower book. It's probably my favorite of the series.
You really can't go wrong with the first four. Wizard and Glass is my favorite of the series though.

You should've started A Song of Ice and Fire, but The Dark Tower is pretty fucking awesome until Wolves of the Calla and beyond. Who knows, you might enjoy the final three books. A Song of Ice and Fire is miles beyond The Dark Tower though.
I will say this and end it for now. Roland chose an awesome weapon to get his guns from Cort.
Spoilers for ASOIAF series (well more of an update re: what's happening)
Spoiler for ADWD:
8 July 2010 Update:
At a book signing in San Diego, whilst teaching at Clarion, GRRM confirmed that ADWD has reached 1,400 pages in manuscript. He indicates that he was disappointed not to have finished the book before attending Clarion, but was not drawn on how close completion might me after his return home on the 11th.
Good news I guess. I think he's got a fair bit done but since he doesn't write the book chronologically it makes it hard to tell. He was having a lot of trouble with some Mereneese chapters a while back, I think. Still good news, and encouraging news I think.
