My god, I thought I was never going to finish this one…
While I was very enthusiastic about continuing my ‘Dark Tower’ journey with this fifth volume, I became very dissapointed in it after about a 100 pages.
The first 50-100 pages are fine. Then you realise the story isn’t going anywhere. And won’t be until you’re 450 pages further in the book. About 30 pages of action after 500+ pages of ‘build-up’. Maybe this would’ve been more enjoyable for me if I had read ‘Salem’s Lot first. I really didn’t give two shits about Father Callahan’s adventures, which are hard to ignore in this book.
If it didn’t involve some of my favourite characters, I would’ve maybe even cut my rating 1 star down. Damn.
