Anyone else pick this up? I am a big fan of the Dark Tower series, and was surprised that this book was coming out with such little fanfare. I almost wish I had missed it completely and picked it up from the library in a year or so. The book has a similar format to book 4, Wizard and Glass, where Roland tells a story of his past. During this back story, Young Roland tells a bedtime story that his mother used to tell him which takes up 50% of the book. The bedtime story, Wind Through the Keyhole, would be find if it was expanded into a novella or a full book on it's own. The main storyline of Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy only take up 10% of the book and should be avoided to anyone reading books 1-7 for the first time.

Little fanfare? The wait list at the library is in the triple digits. I got in around #60, so I'm guessing I'll read the book sometime in 2015.

I am very excited to read this when I get to it. Wizard and Glass was the peak of the original 7 book series, and that time in Roland's life is an obvious and perfect place to go for more stories. I like that Jae Lee is doing the novel illustration too, since his work on the comic series has completely redefined my internal images of the characters he's drawn.

Yeah, Justice League is all kinds of bad. "They're just starting out" is not an excuse for the characterizations I'm seeing here. I'm pretty sure if we acted that moronic on our first days on the job, we'd have been fired.
