Fuck yes, Dark Tower talk. This quick look is automatically great.@stryker1121 said:
Odetta was most certainly fucking not the good one, Patrick. But it's cool, lol, dark tower talk is always welcome.
Detta was the bad one, actually. Odetta was good but kind of weak. Then the two personalities merged into Susannah...i think. As for the DT series, it got very erratic toward the end, and lots changed after King's accident, obviously. But I liked the ending...the whole endgame bit was some of my favorite writing King's ever done in fact.
I thought the confrontations with the main villains were handled very poorly but the final final chapter was fucking awesome.
Again, I have to assume King scotched whatever plans he had for the story post accident, meaning re-writes and a very lame death for a certain well-loved King villain.
All the stuff after Jake's death was pretty much gold to me, besides perhaps the Dandelo chapter. Susannah's departure was devastating, while Patrick became a very interesting character in the end, and the Red King was kind of awesome in the short time we saw him. If King made a mistake toward the end, it was giving the Crimson King short shrift. Poor Roland..I know people didn't like the ending but that was the only way it could have gone. Dude was a relentless robot willing to step over most anyone to get to his Tower, and is doomed to be on a loop saving the thing again and again.
