La Chiamata dei Tre
"Sometimes, even the sun rises in the north and sets in the east."
It could be an oversight, but most likely meant to raise that exact question: Are east and west swapped in Roland's universe, or is this simply a symptom of a world that has 'moved on'?(less)
More lists with this book...
Notes: It plays tunes of discomfort by pulses and shrieks, sagging for lengths in its middle but picking up pace near the end.
The story resumes exactly where it ended up with The Gunslinger: on a beach. Roland wakes up after a sleep that maybe lasted years, with the only aim of recruiting the Three, without whom the journey to the Dark Tower cannot continue...
I was right to say in my review to the first chapter of the "Dark Tower" that there would be a turning point in subsequent volumes, and that "The Gunslinger" represented a sort of introduction in which nothing was clear...more
It has more of stories surrounding the 2 main protagonists, whose paths continually come closer, than a plot driven horror novel, but how we get to meet them shows Kings´ ingenuity. Years have passed since I´ve read it and I can still vividly remember them, feel and fear with them.
Mental illness is both a difficult to describe and to deal with topic and King uses the full potential by switching between diffe ...more
I know at the beginning of the year I said I wasn't going to reread the same Stephen King books over and over again.
What can I say? I'm a Tower Junkie and I need my fix.
The Drawing of Three, the second installment of King's Epic Adult Fantasy, The Dark Tower series, blew me away.
From start to finish, I was drawn in with these characters and felt their worlds falling into p ...more
The Drawing of the Three is as far as I can tell, a unique literary experience.
The second book in King’s The Dark Tower series, published 5 years after The Gunslinger, this really begins The Dark Tower series. From my limited experience at having ready two of these, and myself more than two years in between, The Gunslinger seems like a prologue, a table setting. Maybe, just maybe, The Gunslinger is to The Dark Tower series as The Hobbit is to The Lord of the Rings. ...more
After the rather off-key, disjointed but ultimately the warm-up that was the 'The Gunslinger' readers had to wait for years for part two, and boy were they rewarded! King goes full dark fantasy mode with excerpts of very well crafted horror in this, the most insane, exhilarating, ground-breaking walk down a beach ever!
King holds nothing back in regards to ...more
The Drawing of the Three is a fantasy novel by American writer Stephen King, the second book in The Dark Tower series, published by Grant in 1987.
The book begins less than seven hours after the end of The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger after The Man in Black has described The Gunslinger's fate using tarot cards.
Roland wakes up on a beach, and he is suddenly attacked by a strange, lobster-like creature, which he dubs a "lobstrosity." He kill ...more

لا أنكر أن الفيلم هو سببا رئيسيا لمتابعتي للسلسلة رغم انه كان مبسطا جدا ودون مستوي عمق روايات ستيفين كينج عاما
لكن الفيلم وضح قليلا من فكرة "برج الظلام" المبني عليها أحداث الرواية ، ويعدك بأن السلسلة بها ثغرات تؤدي لعوالم موازية، ازمنة مختلفة، وحوش متنكرة بيننا ، وش ...more
“Step in here, please. What’s your name?”
“And do you have any allergies, Mr. Deschain?”
“And when…..wait a second. Roland Deschain? The last gunslinger? The guy who is on a quest to find the Dark Tower?”
“Wow. This is an honor. I mean, I see a lot of scum and mutants come through here. Especially since the world has moved on and all that, but to get Roland the gunslinger in here as a patient? That’s just crazy! I can’t wa ...more
Yeah, I thought so. Of course you go through.

I was excited to get back to The Drawing of the Three as it is my favorite book of the Dark Tower series. I feel like this book came right when King was hitting the sweet spot for both the quest for the tower but as well as his other novels; around this same time he was releasing/working on Skeleton Crew, It, and Misery. Also, this is a reread as part of my working back through the King books in chronological order, so it is interesting to take ...more

The Last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, faces three mysterious doors which will lead him to different times within our world. From these, he must draw the three who will accompany him on his journey.
So it turns out that my memory of the Dark Tower series is pretty patchy - I have forgotten so many details!! However, I could never forget THAT opening sc ...more

This is the second installment of the Dark Tower series and we once again follow a very strange hero. After not being talked to death by Walter at the end of the last book, Roland is trying to find out what the three cards drawn from the Tarot meant. Though why he believes in a Tarot laid out by Walter of all people, I don't really know.
In any case, Roland finds a door, opens it - and finds himself in the body of another per ...more
This is when the Dark Tower really started coming together. The first thing that happens really shocked the crap out of me. Damn lobstrosities! I had no idea what Roland was going to go through when I first opened this one.
The new characters are in ...more
The Drawing of the Three starts where the previous instalment left us, on the beach. The beginning is abrupt and unexpected with Roland having a ...more
This is probably my fifth reading of The Drawing of the Three. The lobstrosities are just as terrifying. The ...more
"...There's going to be shooting."
"Yes." The gunslinger looked serenely at Eddie. "Quite a lot of it, I think."
And so begins the coolest, most intense gun fight I've ever read.
Ever since I put down The Stand 300 pages in, I thought I'd never read another Stephen King novel. You could say I was even proud of the ...more
This bit of nonsense is likely to send shivers down the spine of Dark Tower fans, it is one of the most memorable scenes in the entire series which spans seven books (originally). The bizarre “questions” are constantly asked by the “lobstrosity” creatures even while they are munching on people.
The above picture—lifted from the graphic novel edition—is not quite to scale as the lobstrosity is described in The Drawing of the Three as “four feet lo ...more
The Dark Tower series is so detailed, like every time i read it I'm always noticing something else; that i missed on my last read.
The aim here was to take my time with this re-read because I wanted to live in it longer and soak it up but I'm taking longer than expected because I've got my newborn son who needs my attention as well now.
Anyway, I'm glad to be ba ...more
So, when Calamity Bev, Rootin’ Tootin’ Pistol Packin’ Delee, Jumpin’ Jeff and Straight Shootin' Susan asked me to join them along the Path of the Beam on a most noble quest to the Dark Tower I said yes without a moment’s hesitation.

"Control the things you can control, maggot. Let everything else take a flying fuck at you, and if you must go down, go down with your guns blazing."
There are quite a few on your feet moments in this book. You can see them happening, vividly, in your mind. It's enough to make you beg for a HBO or Netflix series to treat this series right and do 5+ seasons of it.
"She could only hope. But is there anything else? s ...more
And, again, the book is pretty good. I’ve read half of the series before, I know the next two books are really good, especially Wizard and Glass. I keep saying that. I’ll pro ...more

- Lobstrosity #1 (Wanted for Digit Theft)
The Drawing of The Three maintains the high standard set for ‘The Dark Tower’ series, by King in ‘The Gunslinger’. While it remains a unique and compelling story, this entry felt much more conventional in both prose and storytelling than the first. However, what it lacks in further hallucinatory mind-fuckery, dreamy abstraction, and thoughtful, at times verging on philosophical, reflection; it ma ...more
Once again King introduced amazing characters. Right from the start I knew I was going to like Eddie Dean. He was this drug d ...more
Just not my kind of book or series I guess.
I found some parts interesting but having to dig through the paragraph-long sentences that seemed to jump randomly from subject to subject just lost me.
Some people really enjoyed this book. I've had many people recommend it. I passed the 50% mark today, which is my rule before giving up on a book, and decided I simply was NOT enjoying it at all and saw no point in continuing.
I'm really disappointed because I had heard so many good things about this s...more
