    I have asked you about it in a WaG thread. I am waiting for your answer eagerly.

    Roland would have understood.

    I really don't get it. Song of Susannah is actually one of my two favourites with The Wastelands. In both books, the action never stops and you just don't get bored, so I thought maybe it was due to the fact that people don't seem to like Susannah as much as they do the other characters. I'm sure that's because she's more temperate, although she has some... mental problems. But everytime I start the series again, I really look forward to it because it's just such a brilliant book!

    I don't get it either, Rose. It seems like a lot of folk don't like it because of the big part of the book being dedicated to Susannah and Mia. Susannah being most folk's least favorite of Roland's ka-tet. I don't get the reason for that either.

    So in that version would Mordred have been born out of Eddie's ass or am I reading too much into it?

    Its the Mordred plotline. I don't hate it, but I don't like it either...and a lot of the book dealt with the spider-babe's conception. It was all the behind-the-scenes material that didn't sit well with me. I liked the explanation of the Prim though. That and the morbid reception awaiting at the Dixie Pig, plus the showdown at the gas station were enough to keep me from completely hating it. Of all the books, this one bounces around my list more so than any of the others.

    King appearing as a character just felt odd as well the first time I read the book. I knew it was coming, but it was still just too different. However, when writing, the writer must write for himself/herself first and foremost. I can totally understand why King wrote himself as a character though.

    Watch, a couple of more reads through the series and it will be your favorite.

    well, i feel as though the rest of the books were a bit more, i dunno, straight-forward? all the time traveling to this when and that where, and meeting this person who knows how to get back to the original where, ect ect, just really had my head spinning. Not to mention the business of her and Mia, when she was THREE different people again...i found it hard to follow which was who, and when, and where. i had to re-read a lot of it, but yea...it was just the most confusing book to me. my favorite is Wolves of the Calla

    Song of Sussanah is in my opinion a transition book, the one relating most of the tribulations of the divided ka-tet, but concluding none of them. It's a way of tying Wolves with the final book, in my opinion.
    That's my least favourite also, while I didn't like a lot the early part of the tale in Mejis... I in fact left the series for a year at that point, when my exams came.
    Anyway, remember the series is a creation as a whole, which can't really be separated... I'd really love a 1-book compilation...

    People are gonna hate me for saying this but " Wizard and Glass" was my least favorite. The reason being was by the time I got to that book the comic part of that series came out so I made the mistake of starting to read that before i finished the book. So the book seemed to take me a lot longer to read then any of the others. If I had read the book before i read the comics i probably would have liked it better.

    Maybe because Cuthbert isn't as important an character for her as he is for you?
