  • My least favorite, so far in the series

    By Boston Bluestocking
    And the most like Steven King at his most self-indulgent. I have thought this series has included some of King's finest, least gimmicky writing, especially DK 4&5. It's an incredibly sprawling, undisciplined series, though. Just because this is an epic ( and can now be read uninterrupted) these volumes should at least end at a reasonable stopping point, have some kind of natural arc. Up till now, the Waste Lands was my least favorite for that reason, but at least there was some fine storytelling. This is a hiccup of unformed plot between volumes, some really uninteresting writing, and a massive injection of pure Steven King ego. I won't give any spoilers, but I am hopeful the last volume, after so many pages of mostly happy investment, is not this disappointing.
  • Cool

    Well worth the time. It takes a bit of getting use to but it is the 6th book of the series if you aren't use to reading it then start back from the gunslinger and work your way back to this one.
