    Who is your favorite minor character?

    Aunt Talitha

    Name three memorable moments?

    Roland kneeling to aunt Talitha
    Eddie forgetting his acrophobia on the bridge
    Detta coming to Susannah's help with prime numbahs

    three? I could name three hundred. I have named those which I believe to be my personal favorites, but there are also lots of those which I believe to be everybody's favorites -

    The teacher's analysis of Jake's essay
    Jake saying to Calvin and Deepneau (about school), "This way lies madness"
    Jake talking to Eddie in his dream
    The demons in drums
    Jake opening those doors

    (That last is, in fact, one of the very important things for me in the whole saga, but it's rather a concept than a moment, if you see what I mean)

    etc, etc, etc. I would venture to say that this book is more abundant in "moments" than any other of the volumes, with the possible exception of Wolves.

    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?

    "You won't let me drop this time?"
    "No," Roland said. "Not this time, not ever again." But in the deepest darkness of his heart, he thought of the Tower and wondered.


    I don't really know how I survived that. It was such a giant stone on my heart till I at last have read the last volume and knew - well, you know.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?

    Blaine

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?

    That Roland wasn't alone any longer and was slowly but steadily awakening to human feelings and understanding things he had never thought of (see the riddle part).

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud!!!!!!!!! beyond compare. That's one of my favorite parts ever.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    Susannah.

    Most touching moment?

    River Crossing

    Yeah, the whole Gasher BS, and not shocking in a good way.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?
    Tick-Tock Man

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?
    That they actually did stuff instead of sitting around talking about how they feel about things like Jake's teachers would have him do.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?
    anything BUT Gasher. Worst part of the whole series.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?
    Didn't care about either scene, but I will say that the whole "pretend the targets are people you hate" thing was cliche and sucked badly.

    Most touching moment?
    Me touching the book to mercifully put it back on my shelf after I finally finished it, although "finish" is not the way to describe how this book ended.

    Interesting that there isn't a "What bugs you about this book" question in your list, Sarah, like there was for the previous two. Don't forget to add a question like that folks if you want.

    I agree. I liked him alot more than Blain.

    Who is your favorite minor character?

    Aunt Talitha. I enjoy any glimpse into Roland's world as it was and River Crossing is along these lines.

    Name three memorable moments?

    1. Jake's drawing. Seeing how Roland, Eddie and Susannah each did their parts to draw Jake into Mid-World is one of the most memorable moments of the entire series.

    2. Eddie & Susannah in Lud. If ever there was an example of what was meant by "the world has moved on" it was the people of Lud. They were terrible and fascinating and Eddie & Susannah's adventure with them stands out every time I read this book.

    3. Blaine. I always think back to the time before W&G was published. Blaine was the ultimate cliffhanger for me. As a Tolkien fan, I appreciated a riddling game being used to fight Blaine. To this day my wife and I refer to a cliffhanger ending to anything as "riding Blaine"

    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?

    Lud wasn't exactly "shocking" but it was bleak. It's not too difficult to see how easily any society can lapse into collective madness.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?

    Blaine. Blaine is one of the best villains in the series, and that's the truth.

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?

    That there was teamwork at all. They were all starting to understand their individual roles in the greater shared role of the Tet.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?

    Eddie and Susannah for the reasons I've already stated above.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    Eddie. To me this one showed the lengths to which Roland is prepared to go to get what he wants out of people.

    Most touching moment?
    Roland and Jake's reunion. If that doesn't make you tear up, you were made by North Central Positronics and I will shoot you in your radar dish. [/quote]

    Who is your favorite minor character?

    Probably Gasher. I just get a kick out of him chasing Jake down into the belly of the city.

    I also have to say Calvin Tower.


    Name three memorable moments?

    The Drawing of Jake is one of my all time favorite moments of the series. The four of them working together but separately for the sake of the boy.
    Jake finding the rose

    Eddie and Jake working together in the dream.

    also, Jake and Oy finding eachother.


    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?

    Blaine. I didn't see him coming.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?

    The Gasher/Tick-Tock Man combo. They really put a thorn in the Tets side

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?

    Working together to pull Jake through and working together to get out of Lud. Eventhough they were separate, they worked together as one.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?

    I know that Eddie and Susannah in Lud is some good stuff but Gasher chasing Jake underground was so descriptive and wonderful that I felt like I was there. The first time I read it I bit off all my nails.


    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?


    Eddie and Roland at the portal.


    Most touching moment?

    Jake and Roland reunited.

    and Jake saving Oy's life on the bridge.

    Who is your favorite minor character?

    Gasher...but I'm glad he's dead.

    Name three memorable moments?

    Can I name more than three?

    Serious moments:

    1. Jake coming through the door.

    2. The drums. Wondering what they could be.

    3. When Blaine made the walls vanish while riding.

    Comical Moments:

    1. Eddie calling their dinner "Gunslinger burritos".

    2. Eddie's sarcastic comments during the riddling.

    3. Roland dropping the F-bomb to Blaine.

    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?

    Like Jean said, the moment where Roland said he wouldn’t let Jake fall was shocking for me too:

    "You won't let me drop this time?"

    "No," Roland said. "Not this time, not ever again." But in the deepest darkness of his heart, he thought of the Tower and wondered.

    After I read that part I remember thinking, you better not let him fall again!

    Another shocking moment was when Roland dropped the F-bomb when talking to Blaine. Once he said that, my jaw dropped.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?

    I would say Blaine because he's equally annoying as he is an ass. Now that's multi-tasking!

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?

    Working together to get Jake through the door.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?

    Jake and Gasher running underground.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    Roland teaching Eddie to shoot.

    Most touching moment?

    There weren't any parts in the book that "touched" me but if I had to choose one, I guess it would be when Jake meets Roland after coming through the door.

    Greta Shaw reading the newspaper. With her morning coffee.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    • Jake’s “French Leave”
    • Dinner at River Crossing

    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?
    Not really.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?
    Blaine

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?
    The final bringing together of the tet and pulling Jake into Roland’s world.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?
    Eddie and Susannah

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.

    1. Pulling Jake through the doorway.
    2. The teachings of Susannah and Eddie by Roland.
    3. River Crossing and have the rest of the ka-tet see Roland how he was before the world drastically moved on.

    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?
    I don't think so. I loved this book, it is one of my favorites and I don't remember being shocked....just awed in general.

    Best villain in the Wastlands?
    Gasher, for the above reasons.

    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?
    Speaking Ring/doorway and saving Jake from PlasterMan.

    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?
    Tough. Gasher is damned funny and those scenes made me love to hate him..the way he treated Jake. However, Eddie and Susannah were great in their "first" contact with strangers as Gunslingers.

    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?
    Another toughie...but I say Roland teaching Susannah because Roland brought out his "evil" side to do it.

    Most touching moment?
    Probably Jake and Roland reunited.

    ah, that! that's my favorite moment ever - and the whole Roland monologue - that and the scene that followed! I didn't mention it in my post among the three favorable moments because due to some flaw in my perception I can never place the whole Blaine episode in either Waste Lands or W&G... which is the idiotic reason why I never mention this brilliant scene whenever a specific volume is discussed

    ::stupid bear::

    "I cannot call you a sucker of cocks, for instance, because you have no mouth and no cock. I cannot say you are viler than the vilest beggar who ever crawled the gutters of the lowest street in creation, because even such a creature is better than you; you have no knees on which to crawl, and would not fall upon them even if you did, for you have no conception of such a human flaw as mercy.
    I cannot even say you fucked your mother, because you had none."


    oh man, what can be better than that!

    well, maybe only this:

    "I COMMAND YOU TO STOP IT OR I'LL KILL YOU ALL RIGHT HERE!"
    Roland's eyes blazed with such wild blue fire that Eddie shrank away from him. Dimly, he heard Jake and Susannah gasp.
    "Kill if you will, but command me nothing!" the gunslinger roared.

    one of the best moments, if not the best moment of the whole Blaine sequence. roland has boundless contempt for his enemies and it's great to hear it expressed so magnificently.

    What can be better than that? Nothing compares.

    I had no idea that Roland had it in him. That was definitely unexpected. I was like, Go Roland!

    Roland's eyes blazed with such wild blue fire that Eddie shrank away from him. Dimly, he heard Jake and Susannah gasp.
    "Kill if you will, but command me nothing!" the gunslinger roared.
    Oh man, I did not think about those either. That was so great. I loved it

    Greta Shaw reading the newspaper. With her morning coffee.

    oh man. i just get one? well, contrary to popular belief it's not greta
    i really think aaron deepnau. there was just something about him.


    Name three memorable moments?

    1. jake's essay on the truth. i have it memorized.
    2. jake's entire journey into and out of madness.
    3. jake and roland's reunion (jean has already quoted it in his response and that's good enough for me)


    Was there a shocking moment for you in this book?

    gasher was very shocking for me. i knew something was coming, cause we were told so. but i never expected him to abuse jake that way. he so deserved to die a horrible, horrible death.

    but i think the most shocking moment was roland going off on blaine. i just never saw that coming. ever in life.


    Best villain in the Wastlands?

    i think it's a tie between gasher and ticktock.


    The ka-tet comes together and works together. What was the best part of the new found team work?

    rescuing jake from new york and from the plaster man.


    Eddie and Susannah in Lud or Jake and Gasher running underground?

    jake and gasher running underground. this is so connected with oy and roland following in my head. and oy constantly telling roland "ake, ake" and trying to get roland to hurry up. i knew eddie and susannah would be okay, i wasn't sure about jake.


    Roland teaching Susannah how to shoot or Roland teaching Eddie how to shoot at the portal?

    roland teaching eddie. he showed utter trust in eddie and i was so. . . happy? amazed? astounded? touched? thrilled? yes, thrilled. and then when roland shot that bat thing out of the air, wow.


    Most touching moment?

    definitely jake saving oy on the bridge. oy clapping down on jake's hand with his teeth. jake telling roland it wasn't oy's fault and not to hurt him. poor oy looking so disheartened and upset - and refusing to lick the blood away from his own mouth.
