    I'm enjoying the heck out of Duma right now (re-read nearing its end), but I just can't vote it above Drawing of the Three. They are both--in some way--about drawing, though, so I love 'em both!

    Well I don't have the same passion for it, so it was an easy one for me.
    And it could use some more help

    This was a very tough decision for me. I went with the Three, but it was close.
    "So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or another."

    The more I think about it, the more I agree that we should go with Jean's suggestion of grading The Dark Tower as one book.

    I really suggest trying it next year. And the year after the next, I suggest removing TDT from the competition altogether, and see how this would influence the results.

    With tons respect due, I don't really see how voting for The Dark Tower as one book will be beneficial. They are all very different books. Some are great (The Drawing of the Three, Song of Susannah), some are very good (The Gunslinger, The Waste Lands, The Dark Tower), and some are meh (Wizard and Glass, Wolves of the Calla). In my most humblest and insignificant of opinions, of course. Plus there's The Wind Through the Keyhole for next time. Which is why there was always the disclaimer to vote on the DT books as separate entities. Leaving them off altogether is an option, but doesn't seem fair, as we're choosing The Best King Book of All Time. We can, however, maybe separate the CRAs into book categories, choosing the Best Novel, Best Collection, and Best Dark Tower Novel. And then have those winners face each other for the ultimate prize.

    Wow, Pablo, your way of grading the DT books is totally different from mine.

    I go, TDOTT, WAG, WOTC, TG, TDT, TW, and SOS is way the fuck in the back. For some reason I hated SOS, don't know why.
