I haven't read a lot since early July so I still haven't finished this one, I like it so far, but I don't like how it just abandons the main cast of characters for a massive amount of back story. I feel it could've been formatted better, like the last part of IT how it switches between child and adult every few chapters. Don't get me wrong, I like Roland's story, but there are times when I wish it would go back to current time besides a little 10 page intermission.

Absolutely stick with it. This "intermission" is crucial to the remaining journey. It is necessary backstory to build character. Think of it more as a "campfire story telling" rather than an intermission.

Jesus! That was a depressing ending, all that work
to save Susan and she gets Charyou Tree-ed anyways.Wizard's rainbow is one hell of a drug.

Well I'm finally on "The Wind Through the Keyhole".

I'm kinda sad Tick-Tock died, I thought he would've been a cool returning villain
