    Yeah, I especially love the scene where Roland mesmerized King and he tells them about the red spiders in the chickens sent by the Crimson King. It gives me chills everytime I read it.

    It definitely rings with me, probably due to arachnophobia.

    those ubiquitous spider gags always seemed to me rather thin, but the rest of King-Roland-Eddie palaver was superb!

    I don't take your meaning here? Are you saying that he threw in the spiders as a scare or something? The spiders were in the chickens for a reason, they were trying to bite King to make him into Los's pet vampire writer. Los is the Lord of Spiders afterall so wouldn't it make sense that he sent spiders to do this job among others of his soldiers?

    Default Your Favorite Moments in Song of Susannah

    One of mine is the whole scene where Roland mesmerizes King, especially the bit about the crimson spiders in the chickens. It gives me chills and makes me oh so happy..

    Yeah all the scenes with King are awesome, another favorite of mine is where Susannah manipulates that Swedish guy with the little ivory turtle

    I know this has been mentioned before but I just finished SoS on my audio re-read last night. The Reverend Harrigan is my favorite part of that book. I love the book but Gawd-Bomb scene is the best!

    Scary as hell imo.

    If you could post a link to some interview where he says that, that would be awesome.

    Its just a feeling I have actually, I have never heard him say it.

    I just think, as an author, SK probably uses versions of stuff that has happened to him for his books.

    I also know he grew up pretty poor and spent time on farms.

    I'm re-reading SOS right now and another favorite part is towards the beginning where Jake and Callahan are talking and Jake tells Callahan that he doesn't want to talk about where Susannah might be because he has a strong feeling that the Crimson King is looking for her.

    CK, I really enjoyed that whole conversation between Jake and the Pere as they are walking into the Dixie Pig. Callahan asking Jake will I be a gunslinger afterwards and the Pere blessing them beforehand. Good scene.

    Yeah the overlapping scene with the beginning of DT7. Great stuff.

    I loved Song Of Susannah and I thought it was beautifully written. I have loved all of these books and could never rank them in any kind of order, but I have to say that DT5 and DT6 were the ones I had the hardest time leaving. I was reading every second of every available minute I could.

    I accidentally bought a second copy of the trade hardcover on Saturday. Hey, it was only $1.

    Disgusted though I was, I still enjoyed reading about Mordred's birth and was rather horrified as he morphed into a spider and sucked his mother dry. I also enjoyed Detta a whole lot in this book (and the final book). I was never a big fan of hers until this book.

    Matt - I couldn't help feeling when I reread the book last that I'd heard SK say somewhere that that had happened...no idea where I'd of heard that though!

    OOPS! I pulled out my copy and read the last page and realized that we didn't see Mordred until the last book. I totally forgot that! These books always end in such odd places. Thanks for pointing that out to me!

    Favorite SoS scenes:

    1. Mia taking Suze on a little journey to see where she comes from and what she originally looked like.
    2. The gunfight at the store when Roland and Eddie first arrive in Maine.
    3. I love the scene when King first meets Roland and Eddie.
    4. I love the scene in Susannah's Doggan where she first sees Mordred on the screne. Creepy!
    5. I love the scene when they go through the doors in the very beginning.

    Those are just a few.
