From inside cover:
Once again Stephen King masterfully interweaves dark, evocative fantasy and icy realism, as his hero, Roland, The Last Gunslinger, pursues his quest for the Dark Tover. Roaming another world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, he is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into 1980's America. Here he links forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with beautiful, brilliant and brave Odetta Holmes, in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. With a storytelling skill that is sheer magic, and with breathtaking boldness of imagination, Stephen King has risen to the peak of his power to create a compelling epic that is at once enigmatic and familiar . . . and always compulsively readable.
Brian M. reviewed The Drawing of the Three (Dark Tower, Bk 2) on
This is a wonderful part to the excellant Dark Tower Series and may be my favorite of all the books. The story really helps build on what was started in The Gunslinger and expands the mythology. It also adds two(three?) new characters that add so much to the story and Rolands journy. This series is a MUST READ for any Stephen King fans as this is some of his best work.
