I have always loved this books but it would be nice to find out why the walk started, like a prequil type situation explaining the reasoning behind it. Why are there no girls involved, one would think with a prize like so grand at least one girl would try. Another big one for me would be what happens to the winners? Are Stebbins theories correct?

I would adore it if there was a sequil to this amazing work.

Good question. It never occurred to me to ask why no girls entered The Walk. This is one I'd love for a mod to ask King directly. Having said that, leaving some things unanswered adds to the mystery of the story. Welcome.

I personally think another book will add more colour to the universe, as in a way I feel that too is part of the tower series, perhaps ever the world that moved on.

Funny how even King's first books touch the dark tower. I can't pinpoint the quotes at the moment but there where phrases that screamed Dark Tower to me.
