    I know this is minority but flagg was mine. Not cause I liked him but he was my favorite bc I knew whenever he was in the book it was some really good reading.

    Check that. Being I'm fairly new probably going to change my favorite char from time to time. Mine is now Jake from the dark towers which I'm on book 2 page 44.

  8. Same here :) It was really hard for me to resist flipping ahead in the book to see what Trashy was doing :)

    Pucker We all have it coming, kid

    Well . . . it's kind of a broad question.

    The character I most enjoyed learning about as I went along was Harold, but by the end I actually had a lot of respect for Lloyd Henreid.

    As for who I think would be coolest to "meet," that would probably be Glen Bateman (so long as heh brought his dog along).

    Glendon Pequod Bateman for me. I wonder if Mr King has put a bit of himself into Glen?

    Nick Andros. I've never really considered why but maybe it was because he was an outsider. He was deaf but not a victim. He met every challenge he was faced with and ultimately even sacrificed his life to try to save the group.
    Tom Cullen and Nick meeting in Oklahoma really touched my heart. I always saw him as a young Ralph Macchio from the Karate Kid. Noble and courageous.
    Trashcan Man seemed so childlike and mysterious. Everytime I read it I'm startled at the great characterization. His encounter with The Kid is almost like a David Fincher film. Hilarious and really disturbing.

    Tom, Nick and Stu. I got a bit annoyed with Frannie at times.

    Tom and Kojak.

    Frannie's diary entry about 'the worst' happening because Harold came on to her bugs me.
    I would think 'the worst' happened, at this point, when most everyone got sick and died!

    Randall Flagg - if I had to pick a favourite villain in any SK book, RF would be it. You just knew every time he made an appearance, sh*t was gonna go down.

    I wish I could meet Glen the most though. He's the one I would love to be friends with. Him or Stu.
