The Drawing of the Three continues the epic saga of The Dark Tower, hurling The Gunslinger into the twentieth century.
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 Tower. Roaming another world that is a nighmarishly 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.
I really liked this book. It is the best one out of the first three. I was really drawn into the story and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen. I am so glad I continued with this series. I had a hard time getting into the first book, The Gunslinger, but I had already ordered the other books so felt obligated to read them. GOOD THING I DID. I loved this book.
