I have been reading the book description from amazon.com and quite frankly the book cannot exist, the storyline could never have happened.
in the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death, Roland is sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter.
For those that have read the Fall of Gilead comic you will know that this just ISN'T POSSIBLE. Roland is imprisoned straight after killing his mother and as soon as he is let out of prison his father is killed and Roland has to prepare the city to fight John Farson.
Where is this year that is suppose to have happened when his father is dead and John Farson attacks merely days after he killed his mother?
It seems that Marvel Comics and Stephen King have not checked each others work and this next book in the series has no merit and could not have happened.
Please if anyone can explain this or inform me that amazon has got it wrong I would very much appreciate hearing from you.
Long Days and Pleasant Nights.
