    I also liked this part. It was almost relieving when he punched him. While you have all the confidence in the world in Roland's decision making, you also have to see things from Cuthbert's point of view. After this part I felt like Roland was back on track and back to being a true Gunslinger. It also helped to show that Cuthbert was more than just a wise cracking loud mouth. This part gave him much more sustenance as a character and respect from the reader.

    I do love this book. I think one of the more subtle things that I really enjoy about the book is the manner in which the characters speak to each other in the Mejis story; the language is enchanting. Definitely a top five book all time for me.

    I loved this one from start to finish. I genuinely don't understand how some people see it as a low point for the series. Quite possibly my favourite ever work of fiction.

    Amen. It gave a much needed backstory and explains a lot more of Roland than the other books, at least to me. I really would like another book that deals with his original ka-tet. Plus it's just a damn good read. I'd say it's my second most re-read book of the series.

    I feel like this is probably my favorite book because you finally get some answers to the long list of questions you have at this point (and of course a few new ones added). It was also relieving to see Roland unburden himself, but heartbreaking to understand there's so much he's been through.

    My favorite parts would be the instance where Cuthbert defended Sheemie and shot Depape in the hand (and the entire scene that followed with Alain/Roland/Jonas/Reynolds), and crossing paths with Marten (Flagg/Walter) again. Though I felt so much more could have been added to that scene...quite a bit of buildup for a few seconds of confusion.
    "Booker, are you afraid of God?"
    "No, but I'm afraid of you."

    Wizard and Glass is my favorite book in the DT series. The love story between Roland and Susan is just a beautiful read, and the details given to Mejis are breathtaking. The geography, the language, the politics, etc., really bring the place to life.

    I haven't read this whole thread, so I apologize if I'm repeating someone else's thoughts here. I feel like SK's ability to write a love story is a bit underappreciated. W&G, The Dead Zone, and of course 11/22/63 are, to me anyway, beautiful love stories first and foremost, with some fantastic supernatural threads thrown in for good measure.

    Very true.
    The Dead Zone is one of my favorite King stories and, to me, one of the saddest love stories he's ever written.

    This has nothing to do with the thread, but this is the first time I've stumbled across your handle, GirlySteveDave, and I'm super excited to have found another King/Dark Tower/Kevin Smith fan!

    Haha! I'm also glad to meet a fellow Smith/King fan. Not many people will get the Stevedave reference.

    Jean, I cannot wait to dive into your love story thread. I'm sure there are many, MANY, SK love stories that are underrated and/or underappreciated. I look forward to catching up on the thread.
