Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla

I finally finished the fifth book of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, Wolves of the Calla. It was really good and really long. I was amazed that a bulk of the book had nothing to do with the actual “Wolves”. Roland and his ka-tet come across a town where all children born are twins, one boy and one girl. Every twenty years or so, a group of riders in wolf masks take away one of the twins and they come back “roont”, or retarded. The town begs Roland’s group to help and they do. In the town, they meet Father Callahan from Salem’s Lot who leads them to a way to help save the rose in the abandoned lot in New York, the doorway to their quest to save The Dark Tower and all of existence. The book is a whopping 900 pages long and it took me quite a while (four months) to finish, but it was well worth it.
