4.0 out of 5 stars This is where it kicked in for me..., 30 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Dark Tower II: The Drawing Of The Three: 2 (Paperback)
While pursuing his quest for the Dark Tower through a world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, Roland, The Last Gunslinger, is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into contemporary America. Here he links 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.

I am loving my re-read of The Dark Tower series – this is only the second time I have read it and I had forgotton how totally addictive and absolutely brilliant it is – especially from about halfway through Book 2. I spoke in my review of “The Gunslinger” about how I felt it wasnt the greatest of starts even though it had some absolutely stunning imagery – but in “The Drawing of the Three” the quest kicks in and I just know from here on in I’m going to be a mad reading machine until I have completed all the books once more.

From the opening sentences, as the “horror” side of Stephen King’s writing kicks in while Roland fights to survive on the beach (oh my!) to the end of the book where he has drawn his companions from our world and the journey towards the Dark Tower truly begins, this is absolutely compelling stuff. Great battles interspersed with contemplative moments and some real character building, this is where I fell in love.

Its difficult to review in depth because the very thought of spoiling anything for the next reader makes me go cold – its one of those “you really had to be there” type books…and trust me you really WANT to be there. Brilliant stuff.

The Wastelands await me. I will see you soon – Go then, there are other worlds than these…

Happy Reading Folks!
