Nice change of pace as I read all things dark tower
I'm currently reading through the dark tower series, including some of the books that tie into it. Before this I had just read:
The drawing of the three
I've liked each book so far, but this one was very different from the others. The book is told as a bit of a fairy tale, with the narrator stopping to comment on the story, teasing what will happen next and asking you to stop and think about how you would feel if you found yourself in the story.
I very much enjoyed the narration, and while the story was simple, it was a short and pleasant change of pace.
While the book does tie in strongly with a character found in other king books, you don't need to have read anything else before this one.
If you're like me and still early on your journey through all things dark tower, I think you'll look back on this one as a nice little side vacation.

A Great Place to Start
If you haven't read Stephen King and you've been meaning to start, this would be an excellent book for you. It's also appropriate for younger readers. Featuring a villain familiar to anyone who's seen or read The Stand, or The Dark Tower series, this story stands alone and is a favorite of many of King's constant readers. Fans of Ronnie James Dio, and Game of Thrones should enjoy this.
