A big, sprawling quest book that takes ages to get going. It's full of little nuggets to keep the reader alert like subtle and not-so subtle references to characters and tropes from other folk tales. It was slow-going for me - not a page-turner as so many other King novels are. All it needs is scripting into a movie where the big set-pieces will shine.
