**I’m going to include a spoiler warning just because this is a book in a series and it’s almost impossible to talk about it without any spoilers if you haven’t read any of the previous books.
Well, this definitely wasn’t my favorite book of the series so far. It starts out interesting enough: continuing with the travels of Roland and his friends. Then we have to drudge through hundreds of pages of Roland’s past. I’ve said before that I wasn’t a fan of reading Roland’s backstory in The Gunslinger and I’m still not a fan. The odd thing is, it’s hard for me to grasp WHY I’m so disinterested. Usually backstory on a character is a GOOD thing.
