    One of my favorite moments in this book is when Tian calls a Calla meeting and Callahan steps in and puts all the yellowbellies in their place. I'm like "Ohhhhh shit, now here is one tough mother-fucker"

    i agree, i loved callahan in that scene. he's only outdone by the way roland handles some of the same cowards when he has his meeting with the folken.

    in my opinion, he - Callahan in that scene - is only outdone by Roland speaking to Blaine. All other cases are inferior to those two.

    that is my absolute, all-time favorite. I have two: Callahan's first appearance and his debates with the townfolks, and Roland's stand against Blaine. (yes, I know it's in the other book, but these two are my absolute favorite dialogs from the whole series)

    I have not posted here because I am still on my reread of the series and this is the book I am currently reading and am almost to the end. I dont know if I can say one particurlar part is my favorite because there are several. I love it when Roland dances the commala. Susannah sings. Oy being introduced as the line of eld. I also love when Callahan puts the folken in their place. I love what Eddie did to Andy. The way he shut him down

    Nah, I'm just kidding. I like Oy a lot, a great character in his own right.

    I thought King took things a bit far in Waste Lands having having him tapping out a count of the amount of baddies behind the security door mind. Felt a bit like lassie on acid to me... but it didn't spoil the story or the character.

    Spoiler:
    And he had a very pivotal role to play later.

    Default 3 here.

    3) when Andolini looks in Eddie's eyes and realises he's doomed

    2) When Eddie confronts Andy. "I can't see any guns," "No, actually all I see is a ____ing traitor..." and Andy's rage and creepy self-pity thereafter

    1) "If you had found him- if you had found my boy- Slightman, would you have killed him?"

    New favourite moment.
    When the twins and their mother and Eddie and the roonts are playing with a rope on the yard of Tian. Touching.

    Roland would have understood.

    Some great stuff here already, but what about the New York Groove near the beginning? I've never been to NYC or anything but I've always found that section to be really vivid. After waiting for WotC to be published it was probably this chapter where it really felt like Roland and co were BACK!

    I also really liked the very opening bit that was set in the Calla. Where they were debating what (if anything) to do about the Wolves. It was a nice change of pace and a great way to introduce the Calla and the residents.

    The "New York Groove" todash scene is awesome! I particularly love thinking of the song of the same name while picturing Eddie walking down the street on the way to the Rose.

    Jake out at night heading towards to Dogan and the whole scene with him in there and the fear of getting caught.

    I kept telling him to turn back, or keep still when he got there.

    I love the part when Roland is on the porch with the Eisenhart's and Margaret has her hand under her apron. Once Roland is told of throwing the plate you can just hear his mind working. He is perfectly willing to accept the help and bravery of the women wanting to participate in the protection of their families.

    I love when Roland goes in the honky tonk and says, "how it's hanging?"

    Default Wolves was my favourite book of the series

    After the turgid and chaotic mess that was Wizard and Glass, my least favourite book of the series, I needed a lot of convincing that the tale was worth staying with. Thankfully WOTC got everything right.

    It was a magnificent read, with a particularly well laid build up and a delightful homage to the Western genre which informs the whole Dark Tower story arc.

    The book finally showed us how Roland's Ka Tet was meant to function together, performing the kind of duty they were intended for from the glory days of the Knights of Eld.

    It gives us the one perfect moment, of the Gunslingers acting as one to overcome evil, namely the wolves, before Mia steals away Susannah.

    Wow, we didn't have such a thread before! What a shame indeed. It's my favorite book, too, for the reasons listed by Ste Letto above, and for many more that I expect people will develop in further posts!
