    Letti, I am hiding in a shadowy corner, waiting you to read and finish the story. Then I will come forward to ask some questions about it. I am curious about your ideas.

    I really liked this story, in fact, years back when I first read The Gunslinger I didn't like it. It was when I read this story that made me really like the series and now I love it.

    I'd love to see this story as a comic book by Marvel. I think that would be pretty cool.

    I have opened a whole thread for her so if you think we can talk about her over there. She is a very fascinating character. I liked her so much.
    So, shall we move to that thread?

    Roland would have understood.

    At this point I was just glad to be reading about Roland again, it could have been a story about him taking a piss and I would have been satisfied.

    Having said that, it was very interesting to see a new dynamic of Roland, not yet so cut-throat. It was also good to not see a bunch of action happening, but more of a "what else could go wrong" type story.

    I liked it, and I wish King would write more about Roland.

    Yeah, especially a story about Roland taking a piss. There's nothing like a good King written Dark Tower story involving golden showers...

    Just read it. As a stand alone story, it is ok, but serves as a Roland fix. Like pizza and sex, even when a Roland story isn't great, it is still pretty good.

    I liked it fine, but I really struggled with reading it. There didn't seem to be any context as to why he was there. I really need to read it again, but it was OK. It added something to the DT storyline, but it wouldn't be missing something without it

    I love the fact we don't know how he got there. I love foggy backgrounds. But of course it is not for everybody. : ) If you decide to read it again, I suggest trying to focus on Roland's personality. He changed so much between this story and the Gunslinger.
