Yeah, that did seem to be too freaky as well.

I re-read the entire series finishing just before Thanksgiving.
Not my favorite in the series either. Just too many little details that bothered me even after moving on to the last books in the series.
Things like the Scrimshaw turtle being left behind. Roland throwing the book that the Tet corp. gave him away and more. but the one that bothered me most was the final location of Black 13...

I think I've only read it once before, when it first came out, I remember liking it and the overall theme but not a lot of specifics. Those will come back to me as I read. I do remember enjoying that he wrote himself into the books though. I guess I felt like there are connections to so many other of his books throughout the series, why not include the author as well?

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

The last three books with him in it was just silly. Was not a fan of that part. Not going to spoil the books but I feel it's a typical "really Steve" ending just longer. He wrote strong then seemed to both wanna hurry cause he got bored, and/or wrote himself into a corner and had to cheat his way out. For the dark tower it just took multiple books to do it lol. Still really like the series though as a whole.

It took me more then 30 years to find myself buried under everyone else's expectations, and I will never again let another person tell me who I am not.

I just finished this one. (I ran out of fiction during the second half of December and grabbed it.)

I remembered it as not very good, and was really surprised just how much I enjoyed it. Good crafting, well edited.

Spoiler alert, though: Not thrilled with him writing himself into the last three books. Meh.

I also was not the biggest fan of it, but once you get used to how the story line is put forward it isn't too bad. Thankfully it helps to pick up for The Dark Tower.

I have to say it was one of the least enjoyable ones for me. But a necessary step in the story as you say.

Wow, All new year and another good book to read taking us into it! Not one of my personal favorites in this series, but a necessary one for sure. Shorter than most in the DT series, but a big step towards the ending, what are your thoughts for this installment?
