    2.5 stars.This just fizzled out for me It wasn t so much the ending itself the wheel of ka seemed quite apt so much as the let down of so many loose ends of the story How events and characters had played such a large part in the story, only to come to almost nothing I didn t like Stephen King s inclusion in the story In the previous volume I thought it was quite clever, but in this volume it really read like he d just run out of ideas and was prepared to throw in any old nonsense in order 2.5 stars.This just fizzled out for me It wasn t so much the ending itself the wheel of ka seemed quite apt so much as the let down of so many loose ends of the story How events and characters had played such a large part in the story, only to come to almost nothing I didn t like Stephen King s inclusion in the story In the previous volume I thought it was quite clever, but in this volume it really read like he d ju...
