    I have finished the Dark Tower. It was a process and took a look time but I am so excited to be finished! I loved the ending that came with the book. Throughout the books I knew Oy was a valuable piece to the ka-tet. He was a gunslinger in his own realm, in my opinion. Just me speaking, I don't know who comes with Roland out of the doors. I think they may be versions of the same we know, which is why they know so much about their quest without fully understanding why they know it. It's not a complete opinion but I can see both sides of being different people and being the same. I'm more inclined to believe it is the same people. What do you guys think?

    Another question and opinion, when do you guys like reading The Wind Through the Keyhole? While I was reading The Waste Lands, I got WTtK and my father told me to read it after the 4th book. I didn't actually do that. I read it at the end but have always wondered what that would have been like for me. My question is did anyone read it then and how did you feel about it? Did you feel like it was the right choice to read it then? Thankee Sais. Long days and pleasant nights.

    Welcome! I read TWTTK long after I'd read the DT books. Didn't matter, though. I imagine either spot is good.

    I found 'Wind' a great standalone book but when I eventually read the series again I will read it after book 4. Welcome and all the best, mal.

    I read the books as published, this TWTTK was read after the original journey. To me, it was like a family reunion. Visiting old friends, talking tales, and being one with the Ka-Tet again.

    Gotcha. I get where you are coming from. I see it. I felt like I was part of the ka-tet during the whole series
