    Co-sign.

    Callahan was indispensable, IMO, to the conclusion of this story.

    He was undoubtedly one of my favorite new characters introduced into the plot.

    New for me because I've yet to read 'Salem's Lot.

    Yeah, there are four Stephen King novels I own, which I haven't got around to reading yet.

    The others being Dreamcatcher, Hearts in Atlantis, and Insomnia.

    Why do so many people think Linoge is an avatar of Flagg's, but reject the assertion that Leland Gaunt is one of his incarnations?

    It seems to me that the latter has a lot more similarities.

    How is that one of your favorite Dark Tower 7 moments Ruthful?

    Oh no, that's not related to the topic.

    Yeah, I know that.

    Just a question I had.

    I"m kind of skipping over most of the posts as I just started my second read and with my memory, there may be spoilers!

    So far, I have been really touched by Pere's stand as well as on edge at the coming of the baby.

    What an awesome fucking story!!!

    Yeah after the battle and getting his friend's brains splattered on him I guess old long, tall, and ugly figured he deserved his first smoke. Besides, he did just pull a Clinton and didn't inhale anyway. hehe

    But that was a great moment when they were on Steek-tete looking down on Algul-Siento, with Jake having a smoke with Roland and Oy napping.

    I think my favorit part of this one is where Roland, Susannah and Oy are running from the Thing under Castle Discordia, scared the crap outta me that scene did

    BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When you're down here with us, you'll float too!

    I like how there's a little sketch of the monster at the end of that chapter, just in case there's any doubt in your mind as to how it looks like.

    Also I actually have that creature as a pet in my cellar if you want to come over and say "hello". Maybe you can do a little re-inactment of that part of DT7 and I can bring my friends over and we'll make some bets on if you make it out of the cellar!

    That part didn't make me cry so much as it just made me feel happy and all good inside. I mean after all the years and all the wheels and all the people... he finally made it to the Dark Tower... I don't remember how descriptive that scene was but in my mind Roland was running through the field of roses and as he was crying out everyone's names I could just see it in his face that he didn't know whether to laugh or cry so he found a way to do both, all the while not believing that he was actually at the front door to the Dark Tower

    I remember having to stop and breath for a moment when I got to that part the first time. I'll admit, I was slightly diminished in spirit by the way things came out with the CK but nothing took away from that moment for me.

    Like you said, all those years and he was there, at the tower. It was so many emotions wrapped into one moment that I felt like my insides had turned into a blender.

    I'm about 550 pages into my re-read. So far, it's better than I remember! Roland and Suz are heading under castle Discordia at the moment.

    I didn't find myself too emotional at the two deaths so far. I don't know why. It could be that Eddies was too slow and Jakes too fast. Both were powerful, though.

    It's interesting how many folk I talk to who didn't like DT7 the first time they read it and when they read it a second time really liked it or even loved it. I think it was because they had a lot of things in their mind about how it was supposed to turn out and the years of build-up make it a hard one for a lot of folk to deal with at first reading because things don't turn out the way most folk thought.
