    Default Your Favourite moments from this book

    We should have opened this thread long time ago.
    I do love this book and I loved every single page of it. I found it deep and exciting but I can understand those who find it boring.

    Your favourite parts?

    Roland would have understood.

    I think my favorite part is the whole part talking about the infinitesmal purple blade of grass and the worlds inside of worlds.
    The Awesomest fled across the desert and The Awesomer followed.

    I think my favorite parts of the book are the stories of Gilead. In particular the story of Roland's test. The moment where he kicks down Cort's door and challenges him is awesome. I love the stories of their training, and learning of Alain and Cuthbert.

    I am stunned !
    Brice this is by far one of my favorite bits too.
    You see all my life my MOTHER has informed anyone
    who would listen that I am purple, and all of my life
    purple has haunted me. I tell you it follows
    me around. To make a long confusing story shorter
    and just plain crazy sounding, I found this part
    of the tale to me personal in a sense. WOW!

    The answer is within

    all matter is energy, all energy is GOD

    I loved the whole book so much that it's hard to choose. I loved the parts you guys mentioned and I must add that I loved the part where Roland met the girl who worked in the pub. Allie - if I remember well.
    His relationship with that girl was so... I don't know. Unique. Cold. But still touching.
    The way they talked to each other... the way they tried to get something from the other... I loved it.

    Roland would have understood.

    One of my favorite parts of this book is Roland finding Jake in the Waystation.
    "It's his eyes, Roland thought. They were wide and terrible, the eyes of a dragon in human form" - Roland seeing the Crimson King for the first time.

    Jake telling his story; Roland and Cuthbert present at Hax's hanging. I'm afraid that's about it. Well, two or three sentences of the palaver with Walter.

    I've always loved the vision that Walter shows Roland emphasizing that "size matters." It was certainly not the first time I came across the concept of a whole universe existing inside a smaller entity [there's always the stoner conversation between Pinto and Donald Sutherland in Animal House], but I enjoyed the way King wrote it. My other fav part was Roland's story of his manhood test. Right there I learned a lot of what I needed to know about Roland.

    My favorite part is when Roland shoots don the town like dogs. It was a good way of explaining is drive for the tower and just what he will go through to find it. It was also a good way of showing just how much of a badass Roland is.

    Its weird, about Tull. I remember thinking the first time that Roland was a total monster. Really surprised I continued but of course, I had to.

    After the many years in between then and now, I still think Roland is a monster and I love him for it.

    I love when Roland takes mescaline and confronts the spirit in the stone circle. Next in line is the reanimation of the man who was chewing the devil grass.

    I loved Roland's little romance in Tull. It was cheap still nice somehow.

    Roland would have understood.

    Roland's testing. Very good.
    Tull.
    Brown & Zoltan (great scene).
    Roland just before he gets to the waystation - he was all but dead on his feet - but still walking to the Tower.

    Roland's test of manhood was the best for me.

    My fav, hands down.

    But, the final vision was a close second.

    Why Roland finding Jake in the Way Station was one of my favorite parts was because this is where it went from bizarre, dream-like quality of a western to outright, tingling-up-my-spine, mind-blowing implications.
    I remember first reading it thinking to myself, how in the hell is a little kid from our world out in this waystation...and it got crazier from there.

    you know i forgot about i felt almost the same way.. when reading it i thought he went to future due to how roland kept thinking back on stuff we have : (e.g. the god Amaco worshiped at the gas pumps)

    that was my ultimate fantasy as a kid, to find myself in some other world that was part western/part fantasy sci-fi. i'd rather not have gotten there the way jake had to, but ultimately you gotta get there somehow.

    I'd die if I knew I'd end up with Roland and become a gunslinger.
