    I literally gasped when Oy almost didn't make the jump and Jake had to save him. Its hard to believe that was right after we met Oy and I was already very much in love with him.

    That's what bears do before they go off to hibernate, but it's only once a year

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    the revealing of how sadistic Blaine very is was some how entertaining to me just his genius put to his suicidal plan

    Just finished this one again, and I'm thinking one of my favorite parts is when Roland stands up to Blaine when they are on their way to Topeka.
    "Now you will listen to ME!"
    He's just such a badass.

    Also one of my favorite parts, the part of the series where we first get to see a manifestation of the Crimson King.

    You're so correct. Many people actually miss it, or ignore it. Lots of folk say that the CK wasn't mentioned at all until book 4 or 5 which isn't true. I am thinking specifically of the glowing red eyes that is seen on the Tower....

    Right, the glowing red eyes the size of Shardik and the cyclopean shaped clouds rushing towards him. What creature do we know of that has multiple eyes afterall?

    Some people remember what they want to remember. *shrugs*
    One of these days I am going to pay extra, extra attention to The Drawing of the Three because I am sure there has to be some small reference to the CK in there too. I can't recall anything that would suggest it now but...

    Hmmmmm. Next time I do a re-read of the series I'll have to pay attention, cause I'm sure I would have noticed that.

    Besides the pictures of it in DT7, that picture is my favorite of the Dark Tower in the series. I used to have it as my desktop wallpaper.
