I have to say that I'm so glad I'm reading this book now that they are all written. This book ended right in the middle of the action, and luckily I can move right on to Wizard & Glass (book 4). If I had to wait, I would be very annoyed with King.
I loved this book. This is my favorite so far in the series. Loved the characters, the action, the suspense... and especially Oy (the billy-bumbler who is loyal as a dog but also talks). Oy loves Jake and I love Oy. The narrator of the story annoys me at times, but I think I'm getting used to him. And he actually does a good job with Oy's voice. Every time Oy "talks" I smile. I can almost feel how much he loves Jake just in the voice.
King is an amazing author and I am a huge fan. I love his horror novels, but I think I love his journeys into fantasy more. The Stand, The Talisman, and now the Gunslinger saga. They are so imaginative and intense. I am awed by his talent.
Ok, time to start Wizard & Glass....
