I really enjoyed the dark tower, I had some gripes though. without spoiling too much, particularly the introduction of one of the characters later in the series (if you've read them you can probably guess at who I'm referring to) the one glaring use of deus ex machina ....and that ending, I wanted to pull my hair out. view post

I -liked- his books (da vinci and angels) but holy bood holy grail was better. I think he had some fortunate timing and released his book when america was ready for a little dirt on the church's face. view post

my thoughts on this one, for what they're worth. I agree with most of what's been said so far, the water magics are emotion and feeling (freeform and uncontained like water) and drusas' magic in particular is shown as extremely logic and intellect based as evidenced by geometries and such. also, as per kellhus being pressed by his 5 adversaries, as much fun as it is to immerse yourself in this world, at times remember you play in another man's mind, by his rules. as such you should remember that that scene plays out through the eyes of proyas, and please, give me one instance where kellhus is as he seems in the eyes of another. pretty much the only observations you can trust in a writing of this style are those of the character whose pov you're reading on himself, all else is the author playing with you. view post
