    Default Your favorite moments in DT7

    This is my favorite in the series and I thought it would be great to have a thread where we can chat about your favorite moments or things about this book.

    One of mine, is when Dandelo is telling Roland and Susannah about how he hid from the Red King as he rode past wrapped in a storm, his whole description of the incident blew my mind and showed how powerful Los' was before getting trapped in the Tower and the re-birth of the Beams.

    My favorite part of this book was the mad dash under the castle for Roland and Suze.

    I was so devastated by what happened up till that point, it was refreshing to be horrified once again. The writing for that segment was very good imo.

    Another of my favorite parts of this book is when Roland and Susannah are passing through the haunted town that surrounds Le Casse Roi Russe and when they actually come to Le Casse Roi Russe and learn the story of how Los' snapped and "killed" himself with a spoon.

    The imagery associated with the tower standing in its field of roses (cho ka no rey?) Regardless...

    Just so you know folks I did mark this thread as a Spoilers thread. So as far as I understood it you don't need to mark spoilers within it.

    that's correct. This policy was introduced in The Baronies for the sake of readability and common sense. The latter means spoilers don't have to be marked here, and the former - that they shouldn't, so guys, please, don't mark unnecessary spoilers (see the newly-added rule in Spoiler Requirements for this forum)

    AllHail, I have edited your title a little, to make the word "Spoilers" more prominent. If you don't like the way it looks now, PM me.

    Cool, that's why I put spoilers in paranthesis but putting asterisks instead works even better.

    I've never cried so much reading a book as when I read this one. Someone needed to hook me up with a binky.

    I totally agree with that.

    Another favorite moment for me was when Roland, Susannah and Oy were running through the tunnel under Castle Discordia from the giant millipede...one of the tenser moments in the series for me....especially when they were running in darkness and all they could hear was the great gasps of breath of the millipede getting closer and closer no matter how fast they ran...gives me chills just thinking about it.

    Whelan's illustration in that section of King is my 2nd favorite of the series,(favorite being the unfound of Roland), I made sure to take a picture of both of them.

    There were so many remarkable moments in this book-excluding the absolutely absurd transposition of Jake and Oy's personalities during their trip through Fedic, and the maudlin reunion of Susannah, Eddie and Jake during the first conclusion-that I can't narrow it down to a handful.

    I would agree that all of the aforementioned moments moved me in much the same way, but add that the entire scene in Odd Lane-including Dandelo's anecdote about the CK-was riveting.

    Amen, I totally agree with you. Look above I posted about that scene too. It literally gives me chills reading it.

    My favorite is the ending - when he realizes what has happend and that he's going to have to do it all over again, but this time when he's in the desert, he has the horn. Makes you wonder...

    My favorite in this book, and in the whole saga, is Callahan's last stand.
