The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed

I just finished this a few hours ago and I'm an emotional wreck. I'm truly a late-comer to the dark tower series. After all, once a thing is done, there's no do-over. (view spoiler)

I've heard many people complain about Sai King placing himself into the story, but I think that I rather liked it. It adds an element of reality to the story. Maybe Roland and his ka-tet and the Beams are real and King has been merely a conduit through which this story has been flowing.

Since this book was published 8 years ago, I hardly can complain about hearing spoilers about this book. (view spoiler) but I wasn't expecting spoilers for other connected books too; like Insomnia. So I guess you have an idea which book I've got on deck.

Lastly while I only just finished this read-through, I'm already itching to get started on my first re-read. (view spoiler)

Thanks again Sai King.
