The language was my favorite aspect of WTTK.The language - how did SK create an entire language? It's so poetic, and like our own world, each region/when/world has it's very own. Saturday, at the skating rink, I read the words from Roland's mouth: "All my gods on the hill." Poetic genius.
Let us know how you like it - I have it in hardcover - I guess it is not available in paperback yet?I just finished the book this weekend. I have already read the entire DT series and was saving this as a treat for later. It was so nice to return to the story, the Ka-tet and like stated above it did feel like a nice family reunion. I really enjoyed this book and of course wish it was just longer. I think waiting so long after reading the original series made it that much better. Looking forward to the telling of the Jericho Hill story, I sure hope that comes to life. I think there are endless possibilities to "fill in the gaps" of the DT series, and keep these nice little stories coming.
Now I am going to do something I have not done in a long time, Read the most current SK book!! Revival is sitting on my nightstand, I walked over to my bookshelf and pondered quite a while on what one was next, as I own all of SK's works but I have not read them all. Looking forward to this read and finally looking at the forums to see what everyone else thought of it.
I guess you could say that I am a few chapters in already as Mr. King himself read them to me in D.C. !!
