I liked it a lot, but didn't love it. He seemed to not want it all to come to an end. I mean, he didn't exactly Clear the Shire and shuffle everyone off to the Grey Havens, but he came close. Still... I'd recommend it. To anyone who knows exactly what Monkey Ward is—without a second's hesitation. I enjoyed it a lot more than Under the Dome (and I actually really loved the first half of that book).

I enjoyed all the blasts from the past, though. Especially the bit about kids selling Grit for cash and prizes. I'd almost forgotten about that. I think my parents let me fall for that scam when I was younger.

There's authors I like better and there's authors I think are much better writers, but there's nobody that can write 800+ page novels that read faster than King seems to. That never ceases to amaze me.
(and of course I enjoy spotting the tie-ins to his other works)
