mine would be the middle 3/4's of wizard and glass...just sublime from the moment they go back into the tale of rolands past...gut wrenching, page turning, awesome storytelling !
i didn't think he could top II, then KNEW he couldn't top III...but, that middle passage of IV...ohmigosh !
I'm not sure I can tell you what my fav is, because it has all sort of morphed into one giant Lord of the Rings type story. I was so impressed by how it ended though, I actually started reading it again. I'm on volume I, the Gunslinger. ANGRY, you have to finish it. I don't think the ending pleased everybody, but it HAD to end this way. I even see clues to how it ends by re-reading the whole story.
If I were pressed, I would have to say the best book is one of the last three (sorry to be so lame about not picking one) but it was obvious that they were all written consecutively. Let me know what you think. I promise, you will be very affected by the end. Good or bad, I don't know. But affected. I re-read the end about seven different times to make sure I fully understood it. Perfect, just perfect.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
