    As if I could pick anything other than Roland.

    Elodin: "Tombs is for feckless twits who can't chew their own food. My boy's a Re'lar! He has the feck of twenty men!"

    Kvothe: “Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”

    Simmon: ”It’s just ointment in case you get burned...but if you mix it with piss, it turns into candy.” Sim’s expression was deadpan. “Delicious candy.”

    If Roland doesn't win, something's wrong.

    If we are to consider The Losers Club as group, should we not measure the Katet in the same way or how about the the whole group at Boulder Colorado?

    I think there was some discussion about it in the nomination threads. and I believe some valid arguments were offered, - like, the difference in time of appearance in the book, and the necessity of differing between Roland himself and the rest. It's too late now anyway.

    I'll blaspheme and say that I didn't find Roland to be that compelling of a protagonist. He seemed, to me, more of a device. The real protagonists in The Dark Tower series - again, to me - were the rest of the ka-tet.

    Interesting viewpoint Pablo. Of course the opposite argument could also be made that the tet were devices to set up Roland's character development. I don't personally subscribe to either theory, but it's interesting.

    I just need to decide on my yardstick so I can settle on a protagonist.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.
