Publisher's Summary

In this second volume, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person's life in New York - here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. They also become the companions, forming a ka-tet, who will assist him on his quest to save the Dark Tower.

©1987 Stephen King (P)1998, 2003 Penguin Audio

    "Loved Everything About It"
    What did you love best about The Drawing of the Three?

    This is about a thousand times better than the Gunslinger. From the narration to the story, it's compelling and I had a much harder time stopping between sections than I did with the Gunslinger. The narrator really makes this story come to life. Each character is distinct, he switches between them effortlessly and it's easy to tell who is speaking when. I did have a hard time at first listening to him, but before I knew it, I was acclimated and am deliriously happy that he's the narrator for the next few books in the series.

    "loving this sci-fi story keeping me entranced."

    my only complaint with this book is that it wasn't long enough the writing is so good the story so involved, a completely enveloping experience highly recommended.

    "great book"

    I flew through this book. The narrator is different from the first book, but after the initial surprise I got over that and grew to like the narrator. He does a good job with the lady of shadows.

    "Much better than the first book"

    This is a really fun twisted book. It's kind of hard to follow, but the characters a rich, and extremely colorful. Each character is very flawed but very redeemable. Cool book good not great narration. Looking forward to book 3.

    Story
    "I Despise Stephen King"

    ...however, this novel does not read anything like a normal King novel. I recently read 11.22.63 and decided to re-try some older King books. I wasn't sure about The Dark Tower, and didn't think I would go on to this one, but the idea of crossing universes and dimensions made me curious, and so I continued. I'm now hooked- I want to get to the tower. I adore Eddie, as he in in the end of this book, and love the dichotomy of Detta and Odetta. My one complaint is the same one I have with most King novels- his gratuitous use of racial slurs. They may be relevant and stylistic, but it always seems to me that he uses "dialect" as an excuse to share some feelings he can't speak as a well known public figure.

    The performance of the book is ideal, however. There could be no better voice for this rustic sci-do fantasy!

    A gripping second book. Extremely well written. This is another in a series that will demand that you listen.

    "Very engaging"

    Enjoyed this story very much. Kept my interest throughout. I didn't particularly like the way the narrator talked off his words, however when he's did the various characters they were terrific and well done. I've never been a fan of the F word used over and over but I tried to look past it and was able to like this book in spite of it. I will definitely read on in the series.
