I think Roland would have been better used in short stories such as The Little Sisters of Eluria so that that element of mystery could be kept intact.
It's interesting that as King fans we could be so opposed in our opinions of The Dark Tower.
I am definitely going to read them again at some point, maybe it will be different...
