really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, fiction
Read in December, 2010

Reading this a second time, I found myself appreciating it much, much more. The story of Roland's first days as an apprentice gunslinger is almost as gripping as the familiar story of his journey to the Tower told in the first three novels, for all that its tone is so different. More, it develops Roland and his world; it makes the rot that gnaws at even nearer Mid-World baronies like Mejis (to say nothing of Gilead itself) real in the Big Coffin Hunters, the Horsemen's Association and the other people of Hambry.

Recommended, as is the whole damn series. I very nearly skipped this one, this time around--or at least the 500 page flashback that is its heart. I'm very glad I didn't.
