I don't know many people who have taken the time to read Roadwork, but I greatly enjoyed it. You really get into Bart's mindset and see how he gradually spirals down deeper and deeper. I think the book starts out too slowly but it only gets better as it goes along. I was also beyond excited to see Father Callahan pop up, even with a different name. Also pretty cool that Bart takes the same drug Roland takes (mescaline) in The Gunslinger.
