1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST

    It was a beautiful and memorable journey. I'm sorry to see it end, but
    that ending leaves enough to the imagination that you can play with it in your mind for years to come.

    EMARX One book at a time......okay sometimes two.

    You are so right Holly. King does have such a knack to leave us with just enough to play with on so many occasions.

    the beauty of the end is that
    it is just another beginning.
    Gan only knows what things this turn of Ka's wheel will reveal.

    I like what sK himself has said about his choice of conclusion for the series, the gist of which is that after all it's the only one possible, and that we all know it.

    I read the coda, but I would have been ok with the ending of Roland just entering the tower. I got about a third of the way through “the dark tower” and realized it didn’t really matter what was in the tower.
    I like the concept of “it’s the journey that matters, not the destination”: though I picked this concept up from Dan Millman, another author with a shattered leg who writes metafiction.

    I finally finished this one a few weeks back. I was surprised at the ending because I had avoided most spoilers about it so I had no idea how it was going to end. It was good. And the end to the Crimson King, that made me think he(evil) is never really gone, it's always watching us, waiting for us....very true. I was sad though that there will be no more stories about Roland. I have grown to seriously love him. Isn't that crazy? :D
