As with the previous works in this series, the artistry is excellent, and the storytelling matches as well as possible with King's works. Occasionally the books take a bit of a different slant on the quest, but always within the context of the original tales. There is a bit of that deviation in this book, but it stays true to the overlying story, and actually in some ways enhances it.
The Constant Reader knows that Jake's fear that he is going to die is correct, and also that Roland knows it and has to decide at some point to save Jake or continue on his journey to speak with the Man In Black and gain more knowledge of what he is seeking. That confrontation is quite eerie, and there is some foreshadowing of what is to come. The book ends, basically, where the first King volume ends, and I suppose soon we will have the beginning of The Drawing of the Three. Can't wait!
