... When I started reading The Drawing Of The Three, the second book in the Dark Tower series, I was amazed to discover that it actually picked up the thread of the story from exactly where the end of the first book let off. Roland is still on his all-consuming mission to find the Dark Tower. ... Read review

Watch out for the Lobstrosities

AdvantagesGripping, fantasy but so realistically written, being a long series you get to know the characters intimately

DisadvantagesSK hasn't finished writting the whole series yet

"After the long hard journey, Roland the gunslinger finally reaches the ocean, as far west as he can go. He sleeps on the beach but awakens to find a ‘lobstrosity’ trying to eat him alive. I like the word Stephen King has invented to describe these terrifying creatures. It conjures vivid pictures of an otherwise unimaginable creature in full horrifying details. And yes, the second book in the series has only just begun. When I started ..." Read review

The plot thickens Review with images

Advantagesthe second installment of a fantastic epic

Disadvantageswaiting to read the rest

"...really going to comment on the main features of the plot, which believe me still leaves a lot for the reader to discover for themselves. Coincidently this was also the first King Novel I ever read; at the tender age of thirteen I had completely missed picking up the bit on the front that said Dark Tower Series Three. At that point I had not fully understood this book I only knew that I had loved it and that this was the novel that began my own ..." Read review

The Dark Tower Book 2

Advantagesepic storyline, introduction of new characters, mysterious and intriguing

Disadvantagesrushed ending and possible plot hole? (all becomes clear when reading 3rd book though)

"...King is well known as the master on modern horror, but he also branches out and some of his books cover science fiction, suspense thrillers, and fantasy. The Dark Tower series is an epic piece of work, compiled over several decades. This book, The Drawing of the Three, is the second in the series. There are a further 5 books that follow and continue the saga. I got my copy of this book from a charity shop and it's an older edition. There are many ..." Read review

Part 2 of an addicitive quest

Advantages More character development and a better flow

Disadvantages Means you may just have to buy the next one!!

"...get this free box-set through the post from my book club, and after noting that it was Stephen King, I cancelled my subscription and shoved the set under the bed... I mean, Stephen King? I'd always heard positive things about the author, but invariably it was because the guy writes scary books, all blood and gore and psychological thriller, and that really isn't my thing. But one particular week I had nothing to read on my commute, so I resignedly ..." Read review
