Aye, but it’s bypassing some of the things that hold it together. Instead of a quest, it’s contained, instead of stemming from cultural roots, it’s weird and alien, instead of poppy it’s, like Flagg here, toned down and dry.
I hope you enjoy it though.
It only got hard for me to read when King stopped trying to be a neo-western-arthurian quest and started taking everything from every fiction. Strangled a simple thread.
