Description

Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba

The second volume in Stephen King’s #1 bestselling Dark Tower Series, The Drawing of the Three is an “epic in the making” (Kirkus Reviews) about a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies.

“Stephen King is a master at creating living, breathing, believable characters,” hails The Baltimore Sun. Beginning just less than seven hours after The Gunslinger ends, in the second installment to the thrilling Dark Tower Series, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person’s life in New York—here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean, and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes, to save the Dark Tower.

“This quest is one of King’s best…it communicates on a genuine, human level…but is rich in symbolism and allegory” (Columbus Sunday Dispatch). It is a science fiction odyssey that is unlike any tale that Stephen King has ever written.

  • Absolutely loved this book!

    After thinking the first book was just okay, I can't believe how much I enjoyed this one! The whole concept of the door in this book reminds me a lot of 11.22.63, but I actually think I enjoyed this book even more (which is saying a lot). Note: anyone who says you can start this series on book two without reading book one is wrong; you most definitely need to read The Gunslinger before starting this novel. (I'd even recommend reading The Stand beforehand also).
  • My favorite in the entire series

    I really enjoyed this book in spite of the fact North in his world is actually South in ours. Also, the use of language was different back then so in this day of political correctness, the raw language was shockingly refreshing rather than offensive.
  • I want guidall back!

    This book really drew me in far more intensely than did the first. This adventure kicked off by these three gunslingers is truly an epic. I cannot wait to see what comes next!
  • I'm finally into the Dark Tower after this book

    I'll admit, I did not like The Gunslinger. I almost dropped the series, but after this book, I'm into it. I look forward to picking up with The Wastelands next.
