    :radioactive: Susannah *spoilers around*

    I am about to open a thread for each member of the ka-tet week by week (but I don't mind if someone else opens threads, too). They are important to all of us.

    Susannah. I love and respect her a lot but she is not the most popular gunslinger as I know.
    Do you like here?
    If you like here why? If not why?
    What do you think about her love with Eddie?

    Roland would have understood.

    I really like Suze. I enjoy Detta's moments too, and initially I liked the fact that she was a person who was both an aide and a threat to Eddie and Roland.

    Susannah is a bona fide independant woman, which may make her seem hard nosed or cold and possibly that attributes to her unpopularity? But i thought she rocked for that very fact.

    Her relationship with Eddie was so cool. Genuine and funny, I love the way his humour often exasperated her, but in a much more tolerable and affectionate way than it did Roland.

    Ive always liked Susannah and have been puzzled as to why many people dislike her so much - perhaps it comes down to the way King positions her character in the final stages of the series.

    Favourite scene would have to be her on the trike in DT7

    Yeah... I would be interested in those people's views and feelings who are able not to respect her.

    I liked Susannah until the last book. Up til that point, she was strong, a little scary and a great shot with a gun. She pissed me off
    Spoiler:
    when she deserted Roland in End-World
    and I still cannot believe
    Spoiler:
    she threw Roland's gun in the trash!





    (Please feel free to take out the spoiler warnings if they are not needed. I'm confused sometimes when to use them....so better safe than sorry.)

    Spoilers can never couse a problem so I am happy to see you use them.
    Thank you, sai.

    Letti could you put spoilers in the thread title? That way we don't have to put spoiler boxes.

    It's not like she up and left like it was some light no-big-deal thing though. It was very hard for her and she felt that it would help him for her to sacrifice the journey to the Tower to leave through the Unfound Door. She threw Roland's gun in the trash because it was no longer Rolands gun but just an old piece of metal that was unimportant.

    I know it was hard for her, I really do. I just don't think she should have. To take a chance that she might get to be with some version of Eddie and Jake again versus sticking it out with Roland....I just don't like it.
    As far as the gun goes, it was FRICKIN' Arthur Eld's gun. Excalibur! It does NOT belong in the trash!

    It wasn't though, when it passed through the door with her it was transformed into just a piece of junk. She didn't know what the door held for her it was a huge chance and she did it more for Roland than for anything else, like I said, it was a big sacrifice because she wanted to reach the Tower too.

    I hear you but it still seemed like her bailing. Her trying to convince Patrick to leave with her and abandon Roland to himself was just another sign of her weakness at the end.

    Making such a big sacrifice and going into the unknown to me isn't a sign of weakness but one of strength.

    I'm a big fan of Susannah throughout the whole series from when she came into it until she left it. Strong, troubled and yet also helped by her demons after coming to terms with them. Crippled and yet fierce. My favorite member of Rolands ka-tet.

    Roland first pulled susannah through that door from New York into his world. She had the personality of Odetta and Detta I believe. Am I right?

    Okay, I'm all for this but usually if you're dedicating a thread to discussion of a specific character it should be in the Character Discussion forum. This is the forum dedicated to Song of Susannah only discussion.
