Felt the same way when the Dark tower novels wrapped up as I did when I saw the three most recent star wars films--an odd feeling of unreality at having the series finally wrapped up, all questions answered, nothing more to wonder about. But, in retrospect, I loved the first three installments (in both cases) and backstory was best left as backstory. Not knowing how certain things happened, having a whole gray era in the past, a present not completely explained...that was all part of the mystique of the series. Or maybe it was just because I was older and a little bit of a tougher sell when it comes to magic and mysticism. Guess I'll never know. Thoughts?
