    Oh yes, and you cannot forget the lobstrosities! Dad-a-Chuck! Dad-a-Chee! I laugh out loud every time I read about their defensive postures and their inane inquiries.

    I think the book has REALLY funny parts. All the parts when Roland was inside Eddie were amazing. I laughed my ass off, seriously. He makes so many funny comments, and his thoughts on our food and our world are really interesting. I LOVE it.

    That was the one that got me hooked. Best one for sure, followed by Wolves imo.

    Why I love DOTT, was the suspense of wondering whether Roland would make it to all the doors or die of infection. I mean you kind of know he won't die, but it keeps you in suspense as to how it will get resolved and how Eddie will make it through customs, etc. The interplay between the 2 worlds is interesting also, and of course the lobstrosities. I find it humerous that they get eaten and taste like lobster.

    I still crack up over Tooderfish sandwiches too.

    This book really "hooked" me on the series.
    People are always talking about truth.Everybody knows what the truth is,like it was toilet paper or somethin...All there is is bull*...One layer of bullshit on top of another...what you do in life...pick the layer of bull* that you prefer...

    Yeah, me too. It was the "Lynch-pin" of the series for sure!!!

    I think the arguments both ways re: Vols. I & II are misplaced. Oh, people will like one or the other for myriad reasons, but the two can't exist apart, just as the series as a whole isn't King's tour de force if taken one volume at a time. Gunslinger takes place wholly in Roland's ("Mid") world. It doesn't take a close reading (all one need do is read the flashbacks) to see that much of it establishes Roland's character. Start the series with DotT, and he's merely incomprehensible, Clint Eastwood bewildered and speaking malapropisms, lost in a volume that takes place largely in our world.
    Could things about both volumes be criticized? Sure. You can criticize Moby Dick, or Recherche du Temps Perdu, but before I'll go there, I'll write my own book....

    Yeah...D3 was my favorite. I loved how the lobstrosities were such good game but yet caused such such infection. It reminded me of the early 70's when we'd hit every infection with a broad spectrum antibiotics... Ampicillin..Amoxicillin...Penicillin

    I wondered, throughout the book, if the infection was a result of the lobstrosities or the environment.
