I recall reading a post yay back, member mentioning something about SK making inquiries about riddles to...people. Don't recall the details, logistics, that sort of thing...but I'm sure the NSA has a full and complete record. Call the Five-Eyes tell them you want to be impressed, they'll fill you in.

OK, so I found out through reading this book that I am not good at riddles. I think the riddles in the book are awesome, but I am terrible at figuring them out. Anyone else have this issue? I bet Stephen King is a good riddler.

When I was reading the book I was too interested in moving on with the story to put any effort into the riddles.

I riddled a few times with my friends in high school and I was ok at it. I solved a lot of the riddles, but the simplest ones seemed to elude me: which was always greatly amusing to my friends. They didn’t understand how I got get most of the challenging riddles but when given an easy riddle I became as stupid as a stick.

I have to say, it's not one of my favourite parts of DT. It just made me think of LotR to much. On a reread of the series I enjoyed it more because I could then see it as a salute to someone else's work.
