    I think we can all agree, though, that SoS was a good book.

    Well we that like or love it can agree on that, yeah.
    Who likes this cover better than the hard-cover edition?

    Not that I dislike the hard-cover cover art, but I REALLY love this one above.

    I'm partial to that cover since I bought the trade paperback before the hardcover.

    The SoS hardcover cover is the most boring/dull of all seven hardcover covers. I like the one you posted CK. I've decided I'm going to purchase The Books in paperback also...is that one mass market or trade?

    We're just getting ready to read this one for the second time...I remember loving it so I expect to get even more from it this second time. I'll be back after the re-read!

    It's you again!
    How can people not like SoS anyway? The lamest book of the 7 is WaG, imo.

    I know that people have opinions on best and worst, but honestly, I just love them all. I was sitting here, trying to think of which is the "worst" for me, and it was tough! They all have their own amazing personalities and to choose one that is the most awful would be impossible, I think.

    Sorry, All Hail, if we are spamming this thread. I Song of Susannah!

    I was wondering when you guys were going to get around to that..is it just me or Song of Susannah the fastest paced of all the books in the series? Even faster than Drawing? It sure seems it to me. It feels like so much is packed into it.

    We'll let you know how "fast-paced" it is after our second reading... I know that Drawing was really fast, and SoS is one of the shorter ones. I think the action is pretty good throughout, and am looking forward to digging into it in the next few days.

    Matthew, honestly, by the time I made it to the last three books, I couldn't put them down! I remember them as a whole but not individually.

    I know! I took a day off from work when each one came out and barely got up for the bathroom breaks! Gawd bomb, praise Jesus!! One of my favorite minor characters, he freaking cracks me up!

    Agreed CK. I laughed hard while he was telling Pere:

    "Catholics are going to Hell, Father Don"
    and
    "Sodom on the halfshell, Gomorrah on a graham cracker, ready for the God-bomb that will surely fall from the skies, say hallelujah, say sweet Jesus and gimme amen."

    Well, I sure didn't hate it. I believe I may have put Wolves behind it at one time but I believe they are on par. That's only because VII is the best of the last three imo and the first four are the best of the series.

    Matt, I'm still trying to figure out the logic behind that post.

    Meaning Song is only at the bottom of my list with Wolves becasue I like the other ones so much better.

    Not that I don't like it.

    Yes, we're almost finished with our second read of DTVI and will move immediately onto VII this weekend.

    SoS originally wasn't in my top 3 or 4. But, when BedOfRoses read it for her first time, I realized just how much WAS packed into this little gem and I enjoyed our discussions. As I read it again, it's pretty damn good!!!!!

    My favorite part (and was the first time) is the part that some people have a hard time swallowing. King.

    I know that this series would have had a completely different spin had King either finished it sooner or not had the accident. The mere fact that those events DID affect the story affects me! I hang on every single word during the palaver between Eddie, Steve, and Roland. It's amazing!!!!

    I love it!!!!!!!

    As for the covers, the Artist edition is my fave. It's one of the only illustrations IN the book that I like as well.
