Reaching the Dark Tower
I finished The Dark Tower a couple of days ago, and
Cory beat me to discussing it.
By and large, I agree with all he said: It's far from perfect, but I was happy with the ending, and satisfied that it's over. I still think The Stand is his best work, but this series is certainly second.
Unfortunately, I thought the earlier books of the series (and, for that matter, of King's career in general) were the best ones.
Finally, a couple of non-spoiler nitpicks: (1) Was Insomnia a total red herring?, and (2) At one point the text reads, "Susannah leapt to her feet." Um, Susannah doesn't have feet, at least not at that point in the story.
