    I finished the series and not to downplay Oy's death, but like Jakes death I saw it happening just not exactly knowing what happened. It got to me, but Eddies death tore me apart. When Susannah walks through the Unfound Door into the alternate world with Eddie and Jake I lost it. It made me so happy and sad at the same time.

    I'm the other way around. Oy's death killed me even though we knew it was coming and how. Jake's 2nd(?) death on the street got to more than his final death. "I can taste my own shit" haunted me for quite some time. With Eddie, as much as I loved him, I was more like - Just fucking die already.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Oy's death made me sad, the part that made me cry was when he said "Olan" because he didn't speak much at all after Jake's death. I didn't see Eddie's death coming, and when he was shot, and when he did finally die I cried a lot. Jake's was a tiny bit predictable but still caught me off guard big time. The biggest surprise to me was when Eddie introduced Jake as his kid brother. I fully expected him to say Henry.

    yes, and though that last was, as many have noted, in very bad taste, I actually cried here too

    I can understand why people didn't like the ending. Only alittle though. I thought it was the only fitting ending to the book. I was glad how it played out for Susannah in the end, and the series ended fitting. I won't say perfect because I wanted some characters to still be there.

    : nods :

    my feelings exactly

    That's classic King writing. One may dislike something or feel dissatisfied (often heartbroken), and still feel that it's all true.

    That's all part of the story though, it shouldn't have a happy ending and I certainly never expected it too. Heartbroken yes I see it, but realistically the most fitting way to end it. I honestly didn't want the quest to end. I dreaded finishing the book and it took me the better part of a week to read the last 100 or so pages. I will re-read it numerous times, I just wish the element of surprise was still there. I was an still am in such awe of the connections and unforeseeable things happened in all of the books. The suspense killed me.

    I cried when Jake asked Roland about letting him fall again at book 3. I had to stop and cry for some.

    I let a tear fall for Benny and for Jake mourning this loss.

    Eddie's death of course.

    Everytime Jake called Roland "dad" and the burial...

    Oh yes... when Jake was not "the boy"

    The end but i couldnt cry because my parents were in the same room with me...

    I am a cry baby

    I dunno, I've felt a little weepy at different points in the books. When Oy died, I sobbed quite a bit- but then again I'm a bit of a sucker for non-human character deaths- you should have seen me when Dobby died...

    I think overall, it's quite a sad series, I think the whole concept is a little saddening.

    Oh man, several times. That said, for a guy, I cry easy at books, movies, the occasional commercial

    Especially ever since I had kids. Anything emotional involving kids or fatherhood will get me every time.

    I cried at Jake's death, but felt that Roland was rather cold about it.

    Oy's death was the hardest on me because he was the most innocent. He was also the only one not treated with respect by Roland. The SOB was mean to Oy on the final leg of the journey, and he was only there to protect Roland.
    It would have been easier if King had actually written Oy the dog in for us to see, or to say that Oy WOULD join them later, instead of "might". That "might" angered me.

    Yeah similar feelings here. It's like Oy was almost forgotten after Jake's death. You can probably tell I'm a fan of the little critter - but still - he was hardly mentioned in much of the later parts of VII - until he was needed right at the end.

    Just finished my 5th reading after quite a few years off. I should know better than read it in a public place. I blubbed again!

    Yes, at several times already mentioned in previous posts. DT7 was the hardest. Had to put the book down several times, couldn't read it all at once.

    I never cried during the series but Oy's death was by far the toughest moment for me. He had a chance to leave with Susannah but he knew he needed to protect Roland and that he would die in the process. Whew. That's some heavy stuff right there.
