    I don't have a favorite character. They're people, and they fuck me up.

    Okay so I just finished Insomnia, but realized at the end that I'd forgotten to read the dialogue with a Maine accent, so here goes round three.

    Yeah right.
    The re-read was because the first time was pre-DT

    I read Insomnia before I knew anything about The Dark Tower and loved it. One of my favorites by King. Been meaning to re-read it since it's been so long but I just hate re-reading when I could be reading something new.

    I struggled to get through Insomnia my first time around (also pre-Dark Tower), so when I finished the Dark Tower series, I thought "I'll give it a go again and see if it resonates differently". I think I hated it more the second time.

    Yeah, I was pretty disappointed. It's a shame for there to be such a long King book in existence that I can't appreciate.

    - The Gunslinger (so far)

    How old am I?
    - 18

    Where am I from?
    -Central Illinois

    Nicknames?
    - Don't have any

    How did I find this site?
    - Browsing Stephenking.com, it was on a list of suggested additional sites.

    Hi all...

    Long time King fan (35+ years) but never read The Dark Tower cycle until recently. Finished book 7 today.

    There's one little thing that's bugging me about something I read in book 7. I feel like I may have missed a previous detail, or perhaps the thing that's bugging me was explained in Insomnia (which I read, but so long ago and without frame of reference for DT).

    The thing that's bugging me is when Roland and Susannah go down into Dandelo's basement and meet Patrick Danville for the first time, how did Roland know Patrick's name? "Is thee Patrick?" "Is thee Patrick Danville?" Other than the title of the chapter, I don't remember any other reference to Patrick by name before Roland asks him if he is Patrick Danville.

    Wondering if someone here can help me figure out what I missed, or which site forum is the best to ask this kind of thing? I tried to Google this, but not finding anything. Makes me think I must've missed some reference to Patrick earlier in the book that I'm not remembering.

    Thanks!

    Default Introduction

    How did I discover The Dark Tower?
    - I was very into SK in High School back in the 80's and tried The Gunslinger back then, but didn't get into it and quit about 1/3 of the way through. A friend of mine recently recommended the series and told me (as much as he loved the first one) that he thinks I would appreciate the rest of the series more than the initial book. I tried again and while I was able to appreciate book 1 enough to finish it, I did end up liking the second half of the book quite a bit. Once Roland stepped through that first door in The Drawing of the Three, I was hooked!

    Favorite Character?
    - Tough to say. Tied between Eddie Dean and Detta Walker.

    Favorite Dark Tower book?
    - The Drawing of the Three

    How old am I?
    - 48

    Where am I from?
    -Philly 'burbs

    Nicknames?
    - Remus

    How did I find this site?
    - Google Search looking for an answer to the question of how Roland knew Patrick Danville's name.
