Stunned not to see Black Beauty mentioned. Made me bawl my eyes out as a 9 year old.

'Willie always speaks to me when he can, and treats me as his special friend. My ladies have promised that I shall never be sold, and so I have nothing to fear; and here my story ends. My troubles are all over, and I am at home; and often before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple-trees.'

KingKauff: The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed.

That's a great opening line, but as a closing line, it's lazy and unsatisfying, especially coming of the heels of three books obviously written to just get it the fark over with.
