Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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?

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:

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.

Synopsis:

Elaborating at great length on Robert Browning's cryptic narrative poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came, " the second volume of King's post-Armageddon epic fantasy presents the quest of Roland, the world's last gunslinger, who moves through an apocalyptic wasteland toward the Dark Tower, "the linchpin that holds all of existence together." Unabridged. 11 CDs.
