Highlights of the novel for me included the first door 'into' Eddie Dean, the lobstrosities, and the shooting spree towards the end of Jack's door.
Cons were: Detta Walker's story was confusing (I STILL have no idea what bearing the plate or 'forspecial' had on the story) and it seemed like Stephen King really didn't have a good grip on the the antiquated racist language she used. I also didn't like Eddie falling in love with Susannah Dean.
Overall: a vast improvement from the Gunslinger and it made me want to see the series through to the end.
