Apart from the fact that a couple of the same characters from the first book also appear in this novel there isn't much connection between the two books. It is also difficult at this stage to see where the overall story arc is going. It seems very much as though this is just one building block in a greater story and that we won't really understand everything until we get to the end - I really hope that it all ties together then ! For that reason the story in this book is a little unsatisfying although the author does resolve the issues which arise here.
The book is enjoyable enough to read but the fact that I am not sure exactly what is going on overall rather muted that enjoyment. If I reread it after reading the whole series I may find it more satisfying.
The three traipse from place to place at a snail's pace across a desolate landscape, with Roland Baggins getting progressively sicker. We address questions of addiction, echoing the seduction of the one ring.
I still finished it, although I'm struggling to get into book three - even though I'm reading these on holiday with nothing better to read.
I won't be rushing to read Wastelands, although I understand it's a much more story driven book.
Love some of the characters, so will definitely dip back in at some point in the future!
Stiven Kings master piece "The Dark Tower" is a must read for any fantasy fan or even avid book reader.
