I woke up early on this lovely morning to finish this book...and it was well worth it! This book currently ranks #3 on my DT order. I just fell in love with it; everything meshed really well for me. For me, I: Felt this book was, how to put it, had the most "Western" feel to it (with The Gunslinger right along). I felt like I was watching a Western; and this is definitely due to part of King's vivid descriptions, especially describing the people and the town of Calla Bryn Sturgis (with authors who overly describe, I tend to skim these parts. This is not the case with King, as I read DT, he does this so very well!) Loved Calla Bryn Sturgis; I liked how King really dug deep into the town and people. I felt like as the reader, I knew everyone in the town, felt like I was a part of it, or in the eyes of our ka-tet, really sympathized with their situation and wanted their town and children to be saved just as much as our ka-tet wanted to help them. Loved all the stories; Telling Tales was my favorite part. I especially liked hearing Donald Callahan's story, and I think he's a great addition to the story. (Guess who's reading Salem's Lot after DT? Thought Todash was great; I immensely enjoy when the characters cross their (and different ) worlds/whens. It was great seeing our characters return to (a?) New York. Even seeing Father Callahan return was fun to read. One of my favorite parts was when Eddie saved Calvin Tower; that scene was so intense, Eddie was such a bad*** dude in that scene! Seeing Calvin Tower. Was not expecting him to return, so I liked that surprise! Although, a little short, the Wolves against the gunslingers. Just again with King describing the action. Most loved about this book: the growing and shifting relationship between our ka-tet. For me, this book really showed how they worked together as gunslingers; for doing their duty and service. It showed Eddie, Susannah, and Jake's capabilities as gunslingers and seeing what they bring to the ka-tet. This book also tested their honesty and what they would/wouldn't do for one another (The scene between Jake and Roland talking about Susannah broke my heart; Roland apologizing for taking away Jake's childhood). Also worth mentioning: Harry Potter reference! Stephen King WITHIN his own book! One part I DIDN'T much care for was Mia; I really didn't want to deal with another split personality of Susannah. Hopefully this is resolved in the next book! And leaving this with my favorite Eddie joke in Wolves: "Whenever you show emotion like that, Roland, I get all warm and squashy inside." Thankya big-big for reading this long post!
