    English The Drawing of the Three ItalianoThe 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 continueI was right to say in my review to the first chapter of the Dark Tower that there would be a turning point in subseuent volumes and that The Gunslinger represented a sort of introduction in which nothing was clearly revealed And in fact with The Drawing of the Three the genius move arrives right on time like a clockwork Nay the eureka moments which I don't want to spoiler here are nunmerous The scenario changes radically really radically Believe me after just about thirty pages you will have such a boost that you will realize what kind of genius is the author of the book you have in your hands if you have not yet realized itEvery time I ask myself the usual uestion Stephen how on earth your writing comes into your head? We are going to see incredible thingsVote 8La storia riprende esattamente da dove si era conclusa con L'ultimo cavaliere su una spiaggia Il pistolero si sveglia dopo un sonno che forse è durato anni con l'unico scopo di reclutare i tre senza i uali il viaggio verso la Torre Nera non potrà continuareAvevo ragione a sostenere nella mia recensione al primo capitolo della serie La Torre Nera che nei volumi successivi ci sarebbe stata una svolta che L'Ultimo cavaliere rappresentava una sorta di introduzione nella uale nulla veniva rivelato apertamente E difatti con La Chiamata dei Tre puntuale come un orologio svizzero arriva la genialata Anzi i lampi di genio che non sto ui a spoilerare per non rovinare il gusto al lettore sono molteplici L'ambientazione cambia radicalmente ma radicalmente proprio Credetemi sulla parola se dico che dopo appena una trentina di pagine subirete una tale botta da far maturare in voi la consapevolezza di che razza di genio sia l'autore del libro che avete per le mani se ancora non ne eravate consapevoli s'intendeE niente ogni volta finisco per farmi la solita domanda Stephen come cavolo ti viene in mente uello che scrivi? Ne vedremo delle belleVoto 8

    Characterizationality at it´s best prepares the stage for entering the masters´ universeIt has 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 themMental illness is both a difficult to describe and to deal with topic and King uses the full potential by switching between different personalities that seem so vivid and different that it creeps the hell out of the readerAddiction is another topic King is often referring to due to his experiences and the shivering cold turkey character is one of the closest manifestations of King himself who used to integrate much of his personal life in his novels He wrote this piece at the height of his multidrug alcohol cocaine prescription drug phase that nearly destroyed his life health and marriage and the credible and realistic description of cold turkey and the craving for was part of his real life I´ve just uit smoking but I immediately found myself again in one of the best anti drug commercials ever One of the reasons one doesn´t often read detailed descriptions of this topics is how hard they must to describe the balance between exaggeration and downplaying unwanted satire and belittling or just not generating credibility for the character switches cravings and especially the performing of the protagonist fitting to the personal circumstances Roland of course is view spoilerstill fingering around hide spoiler

    What the hell did I just read?The Drawing of the Three is as far as I can tell a uniue literary experienceThe 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 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 I don’t know yet I’ve just read through the first two and I’m still processing what I’ve experiencedProcessing what has just been read is an imperative as the book is set down Stephen King has created a singular narrative told with alternating perspectives diverse language structures and rich in metaphor allegory and symbolism King’s wildly fantastic world building is in The Drawing of the Three connected to our world than the largely disconnected and purely imaginary setting of the first bookKing’s second work then gains definition along with the connection to our world as a framing device or a boundary that strictly delineates what is fantastic and what is mundane And King chooses as his “mundane” a series of grotesues a junkie a mentally unstable victim and a monstrous sociopath and Roland is the fulcrum about which these levers and torues join the fantastic to the realKing’s narrative and characterization powers are in full display in The Drawing of the Three The reader encounters a mature writer seeking to expand his already broad horizonsI’ll accept King’s invitation to discover The Dark Tower in the world that has moved on

    Just as stunning this time aroundEarlierI know at the beginning of the year I said I wasn't going to reread the same Stephen King books over and over againWhat can I say? I'm a Tower Junkie and I need my fixOriginal The Drawing of Three the second installment of King's epic fantasy The Dark Tower series blew me away From start to finish I was drawn into these characters and felt their 'worlds' falling into place around me We meet Eddie and Susannah within these pages who will journey with Roland on his epic uest to reach the Dark Tower with the hopes of being able to save the worlds The format of this book the way the different parts and chapters were organized the way we are introduced to and learn about the new characters is absolutely brilliant and classic King I am very glad that I began this book immediately after finishing The Gunslinger as it literally picks up directly where that book left off There are countless fine details in these books I feel it is almost necessary to read them back to back in order to keep track of everything As for me I have already begun the next book in the series The Waste Lands and it is proving thus far to be eual in the epic scope of its prose as the first two books My journey to the tower continues Have you started yours?

    Mid World General Emergency Room 919 PM“Step in here please What’s your name?”“Roland Deschain”“And do you have any allergies Mr Deschain?”“No”“And whenwait a second Roland Deschain? The last gunslinger? The guy who is on a uest to find the Dark Tower?”“That’s me”“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 wait to tell everyone that I actually met you”“Thanks doctor”“You’re looking pretty rough Roland I guess this uesting gig must be a bitch So what I can help you with?”“Well I got my hand and my foot kind of torn up”“Holy man Jesus Roland That damn hand is mangled dude And your foot isn’t much better What happened? Did the man in black do this to you? Or were you jumped by demons?”“Actually it was a creature that came out of the ocean and attacked me on a beach”“Was it like some kind of giant mutant magic alligator? Because you are fucked up son”“No it was kind of a weird lobsterprawnscorpion creature”“That’s nasty How big was it? Like the size of a horse? Bigger?”“No like a dog”“Just dog sized? How big a dog?”“UhI’m not sure Like a good sized collie maybe?”“Well I’ll bet there was a bunch of them right? Like a couple of dozen?”“No I mean there’s lots of them on the beach at night but it was just one that did this”“One lobster monster did all this? Why didn’t you just shoot it?”“My guns and shells got all wet and wouldn’t fire”“Oh that explains it You must have been like in the ocean fighting off a giant suid thing or sea mutants or pirate demons right? Then your guns got all wet and when you dragged yourself out of the water this damn lobster whatever came up on your blind side right?”“Uh not exactly I fell asleep on the beach and then the tide came in That’s when my guns and bullets got soaked Then when I was trying to wake up and get out of the water the lobster whatsis came over and started biting me”“Let me get this straight You’re Roland the last gunslinger The baddest mother walking Mid World A guy who has slaughtered entire towns and hordes of evil mutants The man we’re counting on to get to the Dark Tower whatever the hell it is and save us all But you got your ass handed to you by one dog sized creepy crawlie because you fell asleep on a beach and let your guns get wet? Is that what you’re saying?”“Uhyes And I think it poisoned me”“Huh Did it take your milk money too?”After the strange introduction in The Gunslinger this is where the series really hooked me Roland has enough answers to get on the path to the Tower as he's reached the ocean but he's badly injured after being attacked by a psycho lobster Following what he was told in the last book Roland manages to travel up the beach and locates literal doors to another world our world Or at least a version pretty close to our worldBehind one door is Eddie Dean from the ‘80s a heroin junkie in big trouble with the cops and the mob The second one has Odetta Holmes a rich black woman in the early ‘60s who doesn’t let the loss of her legs prevent her from being involved in the civil rights movement But Odetta has a pretty big bat in her belfry The final door unlocks a person with a sinister dark side The increasingly sick Roland will have to hop between worlds to save the ones he’s been told will be his new companions that he’ll need to reach the Dark Tower While the first volume had kind of a dreamy and surreal uality to it this second book is all tense action with a grounded vibe thanks to the trips to a world the reader recognizes What really stands out in this one is that we get another idea of just how committed Roland is to reaching the Tower Injured sick and dying Roland pushes forward on sheer willpower and the extent of his obsession frightens the people he meetsEven a junkie like Eddie can see that Roland is hooked worse than he is on a different kind of drug “There are people who need people to need them The reason you don’t understand is because you’re not one of those people You’d use me and toss me away like a paper bag if that’s what it came down to God fucked you my friend You’re just smart enough that it would hurt you to do that and just hard enough so you’d go ahead and do it anyway You wouldn’t be able to help yourself If I was lying on that beach there and screaming for help you’d walk over me if I was between you and your goddamn Tower“Yes he would Eddie

    The uest for the DARK TOWER continues Beginning mere hours after the events of the The Gunslinger Roland Deschain wakes from his bizarre encounter with the Men in Black Man in Black to find himself on a strange beach Before he can even get his bearings he's attacked by Killer Crabs the Seafood from Hell in the form of ginormous ill tempered though wonderfully delicious “lobstrosities” After a near fatal encounter with the vicious entrees Roland finds himself seriously injured and feverish from infection Slowly and painfully Roland begins to make his way across the beach as his health rapidly deteriorates While trekking across the massive beach Roland separately encounters 3 strange doors Each door is inscribed with a different name matching tarot cards the appeared during Roland's earlier encounter with the Man in Black The doors appear to be standing in the middle of nowhere with nothing behind them In fact they are each a passageway to a New York City very similar to our own Roland’s investigation of these doors each leading to a different year his introduction to 2 of the 3 members of the group that will journey with him throughout the rest of the series ie his “Ka tet” and the events leading up to their joining Roland's gang comprise the balance of this book I'll stop there as I think that's enough of a plot summary to give a good sense of the bookwith one exception That one exception is that I would be remiss if I did not mention that the shootout between Roland and Eddie on one side and withheld to avoid spoiler at withheld to avoid spoiler is among the best choreographed gunfights I can remember It's sweet sassy and super and makes the book worth reading all by itself THOUGHTSI just want to make a few commnets on the importance of this book As a whole the Dark Tower is one of the most uniuely enjoyable and imaginative fantasy series I have ever readprobably the most It's this book in which King’s truly epic vision of the rest of the series begins to form and take shape I enjoyed the first book but it's easily my least favorite of the series and the one most disconnected from the rest of the tale The sense of vastness was there only in hints and while I think King did an admirable job revisting The Gunslinger to correct some of the glaring inconsistencies between it and the later novels it is still not up to the rest of the series With this story the multiverse begins to open up and the creeping hugeness of the plot begins to bloom This story is actually my second least favorite of the entire series but I would still need a slide rule and an abacus to calculate this book’s TOTAL NUMBER OF FUNTASTIC UNITS It's just that the next installments are so saturated with magical awesome that they can't even be measured by existing technology and can actually cause bouts of hot flashes and tingling in the naughty bits Yes they are that good However it's with this book that the long wonderful magical incredibly fun and wholly original journey of Roland and his Ka tet is really born I can not recommend this book or the series highly and it gets my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION50 stars PS As I mentioned in my review of the previous book I have listened to all 7 of the Dark Tower installment on audio the first 4 read by the late Frank Muller and the last 3 read by George Guidall I believe that anyone who has read the books and not listened to these stories on audio is REALLY MISSING SOMETHING WONDERFUL I think the uality of the reading truly enhances the enjoyment of the story
