The Drawing Of The Three by Stephen King

The Drawing Of The Three

I’m glad I listened to author Stephen King’s advice in the introduction to the first book of the Dark Tower series.  He recognized that the first book is a bit of a slog, and begged the reader to give the series a chance by reading the second book.  King claimed that things really get going in The Drawing of the Three.  Oh boy, was he right.

The Gunslinger, Roland of Gilead faces a challenge in the form of three doors.  Behind each door is a person who becomes instrumental in Roland’s quest for the Dark Tower. This book reminded of all of King’s best work.  I’ve heard that many of the characters and places are found in some of the authors other works.  So far, nothing jumped out at me.  But I haven’t read all of his books, and most that I did read were quite a long time ago.  Nevertheless, it’s definitely a page turner, and makes me eager to read more of the series.
