Yes...and how many of those changes are due to his previous trips to the dark tower? what did he do differently this time? Last time? The time before that?
and if he ever gets it completely right, what exactly would his reward be?
Honestly, I don't know, and I don't know if we're ever meant to know. The only thing that matters is that he continues to change something for the better with each passing journey, so that one day he will find his salvation.
not too off topic (I hope) but not having realized The Wind Through the Keyhole existed until after finishing the series - I started reading it a couple days ago and it's been quite the happy read so far
actually *glad* I didn't realize it was there so that I had it waiting for me
Perhaps once Roland reaches the tower with Susan by his side, their young child playing at their feet with Sheemie watching over them... with Roland's mother and father waiting word from the safety of Gilead... Eddie, Jake, Susannah and Oy all with Roland as well... once all the wrong decisions have been made right, then Roland will finally get his reward and get to rest.
First off, I wanted to say I just joined this site, solely for the purpose of discussing this absolutely amazing book series that has changed my life. I have never felt more drawn to any other story than this one. I felt like I was apart of the ka-tet, and it was a journey i wish i could erase from my mind so i could relive it all again.
But the reason I wanted to come onto this forum was i guess what you could consider closure. Like alot of people, the ending of this amazing series sent my reeling backwards, and its been over 3 years and i still feel like i missed something. But today, thanks to you people here on this forum, its like i was hit with the clarity I had been waiting for for all these years. I never had the outlook of it being hopeful, but of just despair. I felt cheated, and abandoned. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you people who actually brought this kind of hope to my eyes. I know it may seem silly to be so worked up about something like this but there was just something about this series that hit home for me. It was special. I'm sure you can all relate
