    Just because the oldsters remarked on her dark skin does not mean that Roland cannot be black - maybe just not as dark (??)

    I've left myself the two biggest morsels for the last few years of my life...The Stand and 11/22/63.
    Also need to read Lisey's Story and Duma Key. Then I've read everything.

    I am currently reading/listening to EOW for the third? Fourth? Time...and just noticed the Cujo Easter egg in it. Sharp cereals, a sponsor of the 'Round Here concert where Brady tried to blow up everyone.
    This book is the ONLY one of SK's BESIDES Cujo to make me cry at the end.

    i've been avoiding the whole bill hodges section to avoid spoilers, end of watch finally came out in paperback, so i can finally finish. i loved it. the ending was definitely bittersweet.

    as far as the other things brought up, i'm pretty sure red was irish in the book, if anything it was brought up in passing, but i do believe it was brought up. regarding roland, wasn't a major plot point about how detta responded to roland, a white guy? not that i think he needs to be white in the movies, there's plenty to focus on without that particular plot point, just remarking since there seems to be some confusion about it

    I thought that Brady did find a way into Hodges mind at the end on pg. 420, when it says that Bill's eyes flick up and to the left because Brady did the same thing earlier in the book. Also, Brady always wanted to watch the detective suffer so wouldnt it make sense for him to witness it himself with the detective?

    Do you really think those flying leeches could take me? Had my ruler on me. Just like swatting those flies at school.

    No, the eyes flicking up to the left has been a reacurring movement amongst all the characters throughout the trilogy and is pointed out by Hodges in Mr. Mercedes as a way to tell if an individual is lying.

    "Peeples's eyes shift up and to the left, an involentary movement Hodges has seen in a great many interrogation rooms over the years. It means Peeples is either going to duck the question or outright lie."
