The Drawing of the Three: The Dark Tower, Volume II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephen King returns to the Dark Tower in this second mesmerizing volume in his epic series. Roland of Gilead has mysteriously stepped through a doorway in time that takes him to 1980s America, where he joins forces with the defiant Eddie Dean and courageous Odetta Holmes. A savage struggle has begun in which underworldly evil and otherworldly enemies conspire to bring an end to Roland's desperate search for the Dark Tower. Masterfully weaving dark fantasy and icy realism, The Drawing of the Three compulsively propels readers toward the next chapter.

Review:

"With The Drawing of the Three...King says, 'I found my voice' (for this particular series). Did he ever. Roland visits our world...picking up three people who are fated to return to his world and help him in his quest....The pace in this one outstrips the first book several times over. Great stuff!" Dorman T. Shindler, The Denver Post

Review:

"Although these minor but revealing books (which King began while still in college) are full of...adolescent portentousness, this is livelier than the first....Typically, King is much better at the minutiae and sensations of a specific physical world, and several such bravura sequences...are standouts amid the characteristic headlong storytelling." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The second volume in Stephen King’s acclaimed, epic Dark Tower series. 

After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea—each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her. And in 1977, he encounters Jack mort, Death, a pusher responsible for cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the "Ka-tet" of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely?

The stunning Plume edition features full-color illustrations by Phil Hale and is a collector’s item for years to come.    

Synopsis:

The Man in Black is dead, and Roland is about to be hurled into 20th-century America, occupying the mind of a man running cocaine on the New York/Bermuda shuttle. A brilliant work of dark fantasy inspired by Browning's romantic poem, "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came." Available August 2003.

I found this book a real edge of your seat kinda book. I had alot of trouble putting the book down to do normal everyday things such as: house work(hehe). I would recommend this series to anyone that DOESNT like to finish a book and not know what is going on, as you can go on to the next one and continue it. Steven King has done and excellent job at putting ME on the edge of my seat. I am doing a creative writting course and this book among the other 6 have been my inspiration to get my assignments done and do as well as he did in writting, he is my mentor. thankyou again Steve.
