    Default Favorite moments of this book. *Spoilers*

    Everything from when Callahan meets Sayre to when he meets Walter. That whole scene is just awesome, awesome, awesome.

    Roland's dance.

    Roland would have understood.

    I also loved the big dance, where Susannah sang and Roland danced the Commala.

    Another favorite moment of mine is when Jake, Eddie and Oy first go todash. I loved seeing the mobsters getting freaked by Eddie's unseen presence in the room.

    Eddie in this book was at his best. My favorite parts involve him...his todash trip with Jake and his confrontation with the gentlemen.

    I love when he reads the letter left by Calvin's great great grandfather from Steven Deschain...gave me chills.

    I'm glad you brought this up because I never got it.

    How in the hell did that all come about anyway?

    Did it say some place that the letter was written by Steven Deschain? I just listened to that part recently and I don't remember it being at all clear WHERE the letter/directions came from or WHO originally wrote it. I only remember the book saying it was from the will of Tower's great, great grandpa. Hmm.

    I'm glad to see several of you mentioned the night of the welcome party in the Calla, and Roland dancing the commala. But, so far nobody has mentioned my single favorite part of this book which comes from the same night... three words...

    "Oy, Eld, Thankee"

    I have no shame admitting that moment brought tears to my eyes and really shows Roland's humanity.

    You say true I say thank you.
    I cried when Roland was dancing.

    Yes, Roland dancing the commala was a great and completely unexpected event. It made me cry when Eddie references it ... later.

    That was the moment when I felt... yes... Roland has hope he is not lost and he deserves forgiveness.

    Roland would have understood.

    It's definitely among the times you realize that for everything else he might be, Roland is still a human being.

    Thank you dearest you would make my day with it but I wouldn't put it on my wall.
    Roland is in my heart. That's the best place for him.
