Winter, just wait till you get to the next book. I was one of those who struggled with parts of it. Big-big. I tried so many times and gave up. I kick myself so much for that. Don't read any spoilers!!!! The fine folks and all the post convinced me that I was not "really" reading SK until I took the journey. So right.
I am ashamed to admit being happy when I heard years ago that a new Stephen King book was out!!! Then saw,, and thought, "ohh, it's one of those cowboy books. Too bad." I was wrong.
You are going to be dreaming of Roland before long.
