    Thanks Maerlyn for asking me to do this.

    What was your favorite part of this book?


    What was your least favorite part of this book?


    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?


    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?


    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?


    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    I feel like the epilogue and the ending have been exhausted elsewhere, so I hope these questions will do.

    Oh yeah, and fuck Greta Shaw.

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    Callahan's Last Stand

    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    the description of the cold. It is obviously borrowed, and totally unconvincing.

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    Eddie's.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    Absolutely.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    It was scarier than I had expected.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Aaron, with John as close second.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Yes, a lot.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    I don't think I have an answer to that

    obscure: it's Aaron Deepneau, not Ed (Ed is in Insomnia); I fixed it in your post

    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)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    The showdown at the Dixie Pig, including and especially Jake's stand in the kitchen.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    Not sure I had one. I enjoyed the whole book.

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    Eddie's because it was the first.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    Mostly.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    I was fairly disappointed. While I understand that he was in a weakened state, I thought the "battle" between he and Roland was exceptionally anti-climatic and basically equated to Roland taking target practice. Weakened or not, I expected the final battle to be more than skeet shooting for sneetches.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Cullum. We know the most about what he did.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Absolutely. Sometimes I think Whelan sees the Tower more clearly than King does.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    Not even a little. I hate hacky stand-up and Collins epitomized that.

    I'll go with Jean on this I think, Calahan's confrontation with the vampires was great. I enjoyed catching up with Ted again though.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    The part when Roland and Suze traveled through Empathica dragged a bit for me. (Part of me wants to include Walter's fate here, but actually it was well written and fearsome, I'd just rather it hadn't happened that soon and he's had a confrontation with Roland.)

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?
    On an emotional level, probably Eddie's, although Oy's was hard hitting too.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?
    I have mixed feelings, but overall yes. I kinda wish the rest of Roland's ka-tet had had a bigger role in the destruction of the King though, rather than pulling this guy out of nowhere, but I liked the character, and his ability was interesting.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?
    I wish he'd been more powerful or that we at least had an explanation as to why this creature who can kill with his mind, literally, was relying on sneetches. I've read plenty of theories and written some myself, but I think King should have made it clearer.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    Can I like them all? They're all such different characters but great.
    If I have to pick one I'll go with Moses. From the little we saw of him he seemed a warm but amusing and quirky character.


    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    The building itself or all the pictures? Overall yes, I think he did a great job on the artwork. I'm not keen on the brickwork Tower we saw at the end, although the picture is lovely. The depiction of the Tower with it's brickwork didn't gel with Tower's description, and it's organic nature.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?
    Not really, although I did like the character. I wish he'd been used by Walter though, or had turned out to be Water himself in another guise. This looks like a great place for the dark man's last trap for Roland before his ultimate demise and would have had a certain symmetry rather than killing him off so early. In my version Walter would be left wounded by Roland and then he'd have to confront the starving Mordred. The scene with Mordred could then play out as it did, except for Walter being taken so easy being due to his weakened state.

    JQ, Michael Whelan is the artist who did all the illustrations for DT-7 (as well as The Gunslinger).

    What was your favorite part of this book?
    When Roland stood before the Tower crying out the names of the fallen. It was very powerful.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    Flagg's death...pfft!

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?
    Jake's - no contest.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?
    Yes, I like Patrick immensely. I wasn't too keen on the whole concept of his drawing and erasing stuff, because there was so much more he could have done...drawn himself a tongue for one! It seemed too convienient, too hurried as a plot device.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King? Pretty disappointed. Again, as with Flagg - I know a valid argument can be made towards the writing reflecting the decline/folly of these characters - but so much of DT7 seemed so rushed to me, like King was working to a deadline and was tying up loose ends without too much thought.
    That said, I love this book - but it held as many disappointments as treats for me.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    Not sure, either Deepneau or Cullum - I didn't know Pop Mose well enough.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    Yes! My favourite DT artist.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?
    Yes, it really confused me at first - very well done I thought.

    Oh yeah, and fuck Greta Shaw
    And her mother too!

    i am loving this thread, and everyone's answers are great. It's amazing to see how our opinions differ.

    What was your favorite part of this book?
    Susan going thru her door.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    Oy's death

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?
    Oy's. He died in a truly noble fashion, and I salute him.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?
    It was ok.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?
    "what a puss"

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    John, with Moses a close second.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    Yes.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?
    Nah, most of the jokes were corny.
    "So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or another."

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    Dixie Pig

    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    THat it had to end

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    Eddie's. I felt pain at all the deaths, but at least Jake and Oy died protecting Roland. Oy's was probably the most touching for me, although I did feel some pain for Roland that Jake died while he was dealing with King and Smith.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    Not really.


    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    How did he keep control this long to go out like this?

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Cullum

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Yep.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    Not at all. It didn't strike me funny.

    What was your favorite part of this book?
    The absolute excitement I felt as I opened it up and read it for the first time! Having the tet reunited together early on in the novel was also excellent.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    Hmmm, not sure. I liked this one a lot. Flagg got what he deserved so I didn't cry over that scene.

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?
    Eddie's because it happened first. That was the first big cry and though I cried for the others...Eddie's hurt me most.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?
    Yeah, Patrick as The Artist was pretty cool.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?
    "Kill him! Kill him!"

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    I like Cullum best. He just seemed to fit in with Roland and Eddie so well and I liked him immediately.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    Fuck yeah!

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?
    Yeah, it was alright. It wasn't like a high point of the novel or anything but it was entertaining.



    Oh yeah, and fuck Greta Shaw.

    You people...

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    I enjoyed much of the Blue Heaven section with seeing familar faces such as Dinky and Ted, as well as interesting new characters such as Finli and Pimli. It was at this point more than anything else in the book that I really felt that King was at the top of his game.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    That's hard. Flagg's death, obviously. The worst thing in the book, and in the entire series. At that point my belief that King was infallible came to a screeching halt. God, I could go on for days about how shitty that was.

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    Jake's, by far. I was a mess.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    Not particularly. I wasn't crazy how Insomnia's continuity was intentionally jettisoned by the author, and I thought his role in erasing the Crimson King was a deus ex machina. Just because King admitted it doesn't make it any better in my eyes.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    The first time I read it I was like "This is it?" and I found the "EEEEE!"s to be ridicilous. The second time I read it I enjoyed it a little more but mainly because I blocked out all other incarnations of the Crimson King from my head.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    John Cullum.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Yes, I did.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    It was alright.

    What was your favorite part of this book?
    Probably Oy. He was just so loyal the whole time.
    And the fact that SK brought everyone (excluding Roland) back together in another When and world somewhere. I guess they all probably got brought back together eventually when the quest was started again however.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    Libbo or whatever that damn horses name was! It sounded really gross, I could imagine it the whole time, even though it never posed a real threat to the our main characters I didn't like the sound of it at all. And I hated Mia.



    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    I think Eddie's and Jake's were a tie even though I feel like I cared more for Jake's character.


    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    I did. I didn't think I would because of the foreshadowing. I thought I wouldn't like him at all - since he put Roland trapped on top of the tower with the Crimson King. But that's not Patrick's fault...it's Roland's fault that he's trapped searching for the tower. Patrick's role was short but he was nice. He did seem sort of like an easy way out for Roland though, to get up to the top of the tower and defeat the Crimson King, and we don't even know how he came to be in the basement of Joe Collin's house.


    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?
    Lame. Like a little Toad. Sure he went "crazy" but his role lasted....7 pages? and all he did was scream EEEEEEEEE! I need to read more S.K. books to get a better idea about this guy though.


    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Cullum.


    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Yeah, sure helped my visions. I know we all have our own ideas, but I guess what I mean to say is, I liked his better than what I was picturing.


    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    No! ug so lame. Can't believe Roland was laughing even if it was some kind of a magic vampire thing. - you're a gunslinger!

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    Hmm. Although in some ways I HATED it, the ending was amazing.

    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    I didn't like the whole white lands crap. too long.

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    Eddie's without a doubt. I KNEW it had to be Eddie ( i thought he would be the only death ) , because he was the odd one out. Susannah was a woman, Jake was a child, Oy was an animal, and Roland was a man. I had no doubt that Roland would live, so I knew that Eddie would probably die. I LOVED Eddie.

    But Oy also made me tear up. I thought afterwards that perhaps Roland would rule the tower with Oy at his side, and when Susannah asked Oy to come with her and Oy said "Olan", I actually believed he would stay till the end.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    LOVED it. Didn't see it coming at all.

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    I thought he was perfect, almost too insane maybe though.

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Cullum. He reminded me of a character in The Stand. Can't remember which though.

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    Amazing.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    An older 'yankier' (I've invented a new word, hee hee.) Stu maybe? (I think his name was Stu, anyway. I tend to be forgettful of names, although not in the DT cycle.

    Probably each death...

    Jake, because people have survived being hit by cars before, why couldn't he?

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?
    I think it was interesting, and he reminded me of Sheemie in a way

    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?
    Nuttier than a nutcase

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    Aaron seems more like me...

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    It was pretty good... any visual is nice to me, I don't have the best imagination...

    Flaggs death... talk about anti-climax

    Yes

    speaking of anti-climax...

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?
    Cullum

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?
    Not sure I have that in my book

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?
    Not the jokes, but this part of the book was very well written.


    to summarize: King is a master storyteller, but he could have found better ways to destroy the two main villains.

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    It would have to be the end of the "Crimson King" Chapter where Roland is walking towards the Tower at Sundown screaming the names of his fallen and forgotten comrades as he does so. It had be in tears of excitement. That one moment of finally reaching the tower and the thrill of it was worth reading the entire series, no matter what the ramifications of reaching the top level were. We were warned the real ending wouldn't be happy weren't we? But like the humans we are, we had to read on and find out the truth.


    What was your least favorite part of this book?

    The part where Oy died. I was pouring my eyes in in tears. It was the saddest moment of the entire series for me. But it seemed right in another way to. He saved "Olan."

    HOWEVER now that I think about it Flagg's death. He wasn't mean to die at the hands of Mordred! He was meant to climb the Tower! That's all he wanted...I was very upset, but I have accepted the fact that the man got was he deserved, but still. It runs in second


    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    As I mentioned, the Billy-Bumbler Oy


    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    It was a very interesting one at that, and I thought it was a great conclusion, however I'm a bit upset it wasn't Roland's Guns that ended the Crimson King's life, therefore having no final battle.


    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    Wow! What a build up, and I wasn't disappointed, he was truly an evil character worthy of my respect. Not so much as Randall Flagg, but close to it. I could see the man standing there who caused so much destruction to the Universe/s, and he got what was coming to him!


    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Deepneau, definatly. Why? I don't know, he was just the most sensible one in my eyes, and gave Tower/Tower a good thrashing with words.


    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    He is gotta be the best damn artist I have ever see. His artworks were absolutely brilliant, and they make Book I and VII have so much more depth.


    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    Ahaha, that had me in tears, it was great! He would have killed me laughing, evil, evil clown!

    What was your favorite part of this book?

    the part at devar toi, when they all have the feeling that its all ending, where they are sat around the fire in the cave (i've forgotten the phrase used - cry pardon)

    What was your least favorite part of this book?
    All of these HUGE villians from all of the Dt series and also other linked books such as the stand and insomnia turning out to be really weak flimsy characters. it hurt me as a constant reader to have all that i read in the past turned out to be lies

    Although you knew it was coming, which death was the most difficult for you?

    although i did not know it was coming it would be Jake's - more for Oys reaction then anything else. although all the deaths of the ka tet surprised me.

    Did you like Patrick Danville and his role in the tale?

    yes and No. i liked the character and the fact it moved on from insomnia. BUT.... i felt that Roland should have reached the tower alone, not with patrick who had only come into the story, 100 pages or so ago.


    What were your thoughts when we finally encountered the Crimson King?

    what a load of rubbish, a fat man in a red cloak - off his rocker throwin sneetches. most disappointing because of the build up in all the other books. it felt rushed and as though king did not know where to go with him, would have prefered less of the white cold place and more time devoted to the battle with the Crimson King

    Which of the Founding Fathers is your favorite, Moses Carver, John Cullum or Aaron Deepneau?

    Cullum, followed by carver

    Did you like Whelan's visual of the Dark Tower? If not, then why?

    I did.

    Bing! Were you a fan of Joe Collins' stand up routine?

    no, understood that we needed him but cant say i liked that part of the book.[/QUOTE]
