Winding up the last of Stephen King's Dark Tower series. It's much better, and Roland is a much more sympathetic character, than I remembered from my first reading four or five years ago. Definitely worth a revisit; even if King does suffer from verbal bloat on occasion, it's all so vivid you don't really mind being led round the mulberry bush five or six times before getting to the point. However, I do recall that everybody dies (even Oy! Not only do DOGS always die but even dog-like creatures!! Why does literature hate dogs?!?) which is a tad annoying.

I love that series. I don't mind King's blathering style. I dig all the little details and call backs and odd data points.
