There's plenty of excitement, excellent use of time/history to keep you wondering exactly when this might be taking place and some effective use of invented language, with just enough humour to occasionally relieve the tension. I can't read the books in this series fast enough!
I really liked this book although it did confused me in some places. I thought there was always something I was missing and had to re read certain parts. I will probably have to re read this book again. I think there may be something about Stephen King writing that makes it slightly harder for me to get into. I am going to look at carrying on with this series,maybe giving this book a 2nd read before doing to make sure I fully understand what is going on. Roland was a good character and I liked that we got quite a bit of his background in the story. I will probably do a better more detailed review once I have re-read it. I still give it a 4 star rating though as the bits i understood where really good.
I found it absolutely brilliant (and 'The Wind Through the Keyhole' even better), though the pace is slow at times, bordering just occasionally on the tedious. It would be a mistake to join the series here. Better to start at the beginning, or to read 'Keyhole' which is a stand-alone novel outside the series.
It is King's genius to create three-dimensional characters, living in a strange but believable society, that sets him apart from all other writers of fantasy. (Christopher Priest is my other favourite.)
