The Dark Tower Volume 2 -The drawing of the three Why read this one? If you have read the first volume in this Stephen King epic series then you will most likely be intrigued to know what will be in store of our hero next. Roland of Gilead has been introduced teasingly in The Gunslinger - I needed and wanted to know what happens next. Short synopsis.... Roland has survived the trials of the apocalyptic terrain in the first book and carries with him a memento that belonged to The Man in Black. He awakens on a long stretch of beach and is savaged by a brute of a lobster type monster which appears to be questioning him with words such as ... Read the complete review

Stephen King is well known as the master on modern horror, but he also branches out and some of his books cover science fiction, suspense thrillers, and fantasy. The Dark Tower series is an epic piece of work, compiled over several decades. This book, The Drawing of the Three, is the second in the series. There are a further 5 books that follow and continue the saga. I got my copy of this book from a charity shop and it's an older edition. There are many print versions of this book and you can find copies on Amazon marketplace starting from just 1p plus postage + packing. Mine happens to have some gorgeous full page illustrations that give a nice edge to the story ... Read the complete review

After years of hunting down the man in black, things didn't necessarily go as planned for Roland at the end of 'The Gunslinger' [book 1 in 'The Dark Tower' series]. His obsession with the Dark Tower is as strong as ever, however, there are other forces at play - forces far more powerful and dangerous than the man in black ever was - it's no longer a question of what Roland wants, more is it a question of what he is prepared to do in order to get what he wants... but first he has to survive 'The Drawing of the Three'. Having been told a bit of his future by the man in black during their ultimate standoff in the first book [The Gunslinger], Roland ... Read the complete review

The Dark Tower series of books has spanned over 20 years of hard slog from author Stephen King, and features the quest of Roland of Gilead, as he strives to reach the Dark Tower, for reasons unknown to us, to Roland even, and, more worryingly, to King himself. Or at least, as he wrote 'The Drawing of the Three', which is the second of the 7 books in the series, King was unsure exactly of how Roland's quest would eventually conclude. The first book in the series, entitled 'The Gunslinger', was met with mixed reviews, with many people being intensely annoyed at how random and confusing the tale was, telling of Roland's trek across plains with rare sightings of ...

After the long hard journey, Roland the gunslinger finally reaches the ocean, as far west as he can go. He sleeps on the beach but awakens to find a ‘lobstrosity’ trying to eat him alive. I like the word Stephen King has invented to describe these terrifying creatures. It conjures vivid pictures of an otherwise unimaginable creature in full horrifying details. And yes, the second book in the series has only just begun. When I started reading The Drawing Of The Three, the second book in the Dark Tower series, I was amazed to discover that it actually picked up the thread of the story from exactly where the end of the first book let off. Roland is ... Read the complete review
