    RolandOyCuthbertEddie


    2. Who is your least favourite character?

    Tie: Susan Delgado and Mia

    Cuthbert


    5. Who is the funniest?

    Tie: Cuthbert and Eddie


    6. Who would you like to kiss?

    Anyone!

    I'll go with turtlesong on this one: Coral Thorin.

    Tie: Susan Delgado and Mia

    Patrick Danville
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    i cannot for the life of me understand why so many people hated Susannah...

    Human kind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth.

    Well, I came to like the character a lot, but I must admit that I had some trouble accepting her. Multiple personality disorder as a plot device is somewhat hackneyed, and I was occasionally uncomfortable with the walking sterotype that is Detta Walker.

    1. Who is your favourite character? – Maturin

    2. Who is your least favourite character? – Patrick
    (Actually, I liked all of the characters, but if I have to criticize, I’m most bothered by my impression that some of King’s intentions were never fulfilled.)

    3. Who are you the most similar to? – Jake (or maybe Ted)

    4. Who is the sexiest? – Uma Thurman (lol, Sorry. I don’t find TDT sexy.)

    5. Who is the funniest? – Bango Skank

    6. Who would you like to kiss? – the Beam boy

    7. Who would you like to slap? – Elmer Chambers

    8. Who would you like to know more about? – Steven Deschain

    9. Who is the most innocent? – Benny (But no one in DT is perfectly innocent.)

    10. Who is the most heartless? – “The Grandfathers”

    11. Who could you write about in an 10-page-long essay? – Roland
    (taking this to mean who could I write the longest essay about. For me, y’know, the real challenge is to NOT answer even these simple questions with 10 pages. )

    12. Who is the most powerful? – The White

    13. Who is the trickiest?
    Quote Originally Posted by theBeamisHome View Post

    Good point!
    In the bookstore, remember this? --
    "…In spite of the situation they were in back here, George “Big Nose” Biondi turned, with the beginning of a grin, toward the voice that had hailed him with such cheerful familiarity. That grin was in fact still blooming when Eddie struck him savagely with the butt of Roland’s gun. …"
    -- DT5
    Good man.

    14. Who is the most annoying? – Walter

    15. Who is the biggest victim of the series? – Oy (But everyone in DT is victim to ka. Even Gan, I suppose.)

    1. Who is your favourite character? Roland hands down.

    2. Who is your least favourite character? Mordred. He ranks up there with

    3. Who are you the most similar to? I think Eddie. I like to joke around to loosen my friends' moods, but I'm deadly serious when necessary.

    4. Who is the sexiest? Roland. As many women as he took to bed that he did not know, there must have been some magnetic quality about him.

    5. Who is the funniest? I think Roland can be funnier than Eddie when he shows that side of him, but Eddie is more consistently funny.
    Spoiler:
    Don't forget the dead baby joke.


    6. Who would you like to kiss? Susannah

    7. Who would you like to slap? Roland. His damned quest cost too much.

    8. Who would you like to know more about? Patrick Danville.
    Spoiler:
    Just how the hell did he end up in Dandelo's clutches. That's what I would like to know.


    9. Who is the most innocent? Oy.
    Spoiler:
    He was only there for Jake and followed Jake's orders to the end even though it killed him.


    10. Who is the most heartless? Flagg, hands down.

    11. Who could you write about in an 10-page-long essay? Any of the Ka-tet.

    12. Who is the most powerful? At first I though the Crimson King. After all
    Spoiler:
    He was the only one besides Roland who reached the Tower.
    Then again, a case can be made that Roland is the most powerful. After I think about it all for a while though, I think it was Jake. Think about what he did and remember that he was only a child.

    13. Who is the trickiest? Roland

    14. Who is the most annoying? Jar Jar...whoops, wrong forum. Mia and her "chap".

    15. Who is the biggest victim of the series? Jake. He was only a child and was drawn into a quest that most adults would not want. His parents were indifferent to him, and while he had friends and a father in the ka-tet, he always seemed a little sad to me. The scene where Jake showed his skill with the gun and recited the litaney truly chilled me and made me feel sorry for Jake having been dragged into that world.
    Margaret Emmie Mackey Catoe, you are, have been, and always will be my soulmate, and I love you.

    If it wasn't for Oy, Prince Pooping-Pants would have gotten the upper hand on Olan. That alone says something.
    Oy was brave and he moved at the right moment. But it doesn't mean he had great power. He had good ears and a beautiful heart.
    Sometimes the weak can beat the powerful one but it doesn't make the weak powerful. (I don't say Oy was weak it was just an example.)

    Roland would have understood.

    i agree lettie, oy had a big heart and was loyal to the end. but i would not have called him powerful - but thats the great thing about this thread, everyone has a different opinion on what each of the questions mean, and i think its quite interesting to read some of the answers
