Quick Review: The Waste Lands by Stephen King

The Waste LandsThe Waste Lands by Stephen King

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have issues reading this book:
1) Violence against women (Suze’s rape scene)
2) Violence against children (Jake’s bruises)
3) Violence against animals (Oy’s demise)
You’d think I enjoyed violence against men but what can I do when the 3 out of 4 of the main characters are male? lol

Stephen King himself said that he was sorry there had been so many loopholes in the book but I was just wondering if Eddie’s carving skills would be of use in the next books (yep, I’m hitting my own head against the wall). Perhaps it had been necessary that it was one of his hidden talents but it later on didn’t do anything to the story, did it… Perhaps it was just an excuse to bring Jake into mid-world and have his wife be raped by a demon…

Saving Jake from the Tick-Tock Man and confronting air-head (if he had any head) Blaine were among my favorite Gunslinger parts.
