    I love the part where Eddie and Susannah are hugging on the beach and Roland thinks he wants to love. Such a touching part. I didn't know Roland much at that part he was a new person in my life still I felt it was a big thing from him.

    Roland would have understood.

    That part rocks where Roland attacks and scares the hell out of a whole pharmacy for keflex. Wow.

    Roland would have understood.

    Default Easy

    Roland seeing through Eddie's eyes for the first time. Seconded by the Gun-shop scene.

    The gunshop scene, and the part where Andolini see's a "ghostly pale figure" after he's pulled through the door by Eddie.

    The series of events on the airplane and what happens in the airport following that. I enjoyed watching Eddie react under pressure and learn to trust Roland.

    And seeing Roland actually take damage at the start of the book was cool. I went into this book thinking that Roland was your typical "nothing harms me" kind of hero. I was mistaken.

    And "astin" cracked me up. I don't know why.

    I thought that was wonderful poetic justice.
    Maybe there's something wrong with me.

    He needs to hurry and end with school so he can start on the stack of books I have waiting for him!

    There is nothing wrong with you. I felt some pity as well but I do think hedeserved what he got. If you ask me he got an easy and quick death.

    My favoritest part of tDotT was one of my favorite parts of the whole series.. When Eddie gives Roland the airport food to take back to through the door and Roland tastes the soda... "Gods! So sweet!". It was so funny to me and I loved seeing Roland discover things that we took for granted in our world that they didn't even have in his anymore.

    Roland always reminds us that there are so many cheap but still valuable treasures in our world.

    You people who "didn't care for The Gunslinger" are CRAZY! In fact, I may be crazy, but I found this to be my least favorite book of them ALL!

    Yeah, and Song of Susannah also feels that way to me.
    (Just checked the date, and this is pretty old, but never mind.) Agreed. They're twin books in that way. And look where they're placed, this one is second, SoS second to last.

    Or maybe I'm just easily fascinated...

    I'm currently on Wizard and Glass, but Drawing of the Three's still my favorite. And you failed to mention the star characters of the book. LOBSTROSITIES! Dam-a-cham? Did-a-chick? *claws Roland's finger off*

    I find the greatest books are the ones that you refuse to put down. I mean to the point where you wake up and find yourself nose down, drooling in between pages (thank god for the softcover editions). This is precisely what happened to me while reading TDotT. I read it in one sitting over an 18 hour period. This book, as previously mentioned, has it all and it's tempo is right on. Not a lull in the action at all. So far I consider it one of the best by SK and I have read a majority of his work, save for the rest of the DT series.
    I am on vacation this next week, so my opinion may change......time for me to start on The Wastelands!

    Just started another re-read of this story. Someone else mentioned it, but I LOL when Eddie is with the priests of Clearing the Customs, the safari, I was scared to look down. I thought I'd see that guy's fingernail sticking out of my cock. Reminded me of a time I was lying on a table in a VA hospital and one of the internists decided to go on safari, really enjoying it. The state of my prostrate really made his day. If all the fantastic stuff that happens in Book I didn't grab you by the short hairs, what happens in Book II does the trick.

    Default Why you love DOTT *spoilers*

    I read this book probably 10 years ago or the like, when i was around the age of twelve, and it was the first of the dark tower stories i read. I then could not wait to read onward, and read the next two books in the series, which was all that was out at the time. It wasn't until later that I went back and read The Gunslinger.

    To me, this is the best book in the series, really strong with the characters, and at the time for me, the doors and magic was a completely new concept. It was really the first adult fantasy I had ever read. While not the first Stephen King book I had ever read by far, it is the one that I look back on with most fondness, for the book itself, as well as ushering me into the dark tower and adult fantasy as a whole.

    Now that I have shared my experience, anyone else feeling talkative?

    Hey there Wag

    I've changed the title of your thread to make it more self explanatory and open it up to more discussion from other members.

    For me, DOTT was when the story really began. I appreciate The Gunslinger more with every reread, but I struggled through it first time round and moving on to this book was like a breath of fresh air. It has everything you need in a story and then some. I felt instantly connected to the characters and could literally not put it down.
