    One great adventure, this was an exciting book to me, and also my favorite of the series but that is not why I give it a 5

    Second least favorite of the series, right after Wizard & Glass. Callahan's story was awesome though, could've been its own novel. A three.

    ok - but Andy the Messenger Robot, and Callahan, and the whole twins thing, and the whole wolves thing, and the grandfather's story, and what King is the real king of - a community that lives through crucial changes, the interaction between those people - and the battle, and Orizas, and the anatomy of betrayal, the spectacles, and the price of betrayal... for all that, a three? a three?!!! because of jumping in hay?!

    Didn't mean to upset you, Jean ol' buddy, and I really liked some parts of this novel, but sitting around the Calla most of the book was what bored me and made me give it a three. Callahan was great, and had the story progressed more, it would've been a four.

    Bears I love all of the above including the lollygagging and jumping in the hay but mostly I love that this is where Roland becomes a whole person to me, where he feels most real if you know what I mean.

    5. 2nd favorite (after WaG) I think the casual pace of the novel is part of the enjoyment for me. This might be why I loved WaG so much.

    A strong 4. Way too much set up and too little pay-off. It was a very good read, but not one of his best. A stand-alone story.

    This mini-rant made me laugh, for some reason. (Probably because I've just finished watching another Malcolm Tucker rant and now imagine it being read as loudly as possible by Peter Capaldi! ) But yes, for all those reasons Jean, an easy 5.
