This is when the series hits its stride. Great action, amazing character development as it introduces interesting characters. Suspenseful story that grips your attention, almost like being gripped in lobster claws.

First off let me state, I am writing this from my Nook. I am not a fan of Stephen King. Many times I have sat down with a popular novel of his only to stop reading midway. However, with the Dark Tower series, I have read the first two novels and am going to purchase the third as soon as this review is written. The Drawing of The Three, for me, was not quite as engrossing. The addition of the three new characters was a mixed bag. Detta more specifically, had me skipping large chunks of words as her performance was over the top. This made the book drag and I found myself counting how many pages were left every time she spoke. The overall quality of the story shines through despite Detta. There is just enough action to conflict to keep you in suspense, wondering what will come next. Even if you are not generally a Stephen King fan I recommend giving this series a try. You will be glad, like I, that you did.

The Dark Tower II is about Roland, the last gunslinger, assembling his ka-tet, or ka chosen band of people to help him on his quest for the Tower. He draws Eddie, the Prisoner, Odetta Holmes (Detta Walker), the Lady of Shadows, and death itself to show Odetta and Detta the truth. The book is fantastic, and I couldn't put it down. I recommend the book to anyone (not including children, mind you) who likes an origional series.

Although it starts out slowly, as many King novels do, the storyline keeps you wanting more and more, page by page.

This was a great follow up to #1! The details behind each character are awesome and I can't wait to see where their journey takes them in #3!

I've been a mythology freak all my life and as such fantasy has been my favorite genre. I saw that The Dark Tower was to be made into a movie... And I was in need of a new series to dive into so I thought "why not?". I am loving it so far!

These novels pick up immediately where they left off and don't mess around much. This was an awesome if not frustrating read due to the situation of the main character. Not my favorite but I was not able to put it down easily.

Okay, wow. This book is really good. I read a book by Stephen King called "Everything's Eventual" - it was the first book by him that I ever read. And if you don't know, it's a book of short stories. One of them is about a gunslinger named Roland and it's a standalone story about a character from one of Stephen King's series, "The Dark Tower". I loved it, so I immediately decided to get the whole "The Dark Tower" series and read it. So I did, and I got to it after reading "Carrie" and "Christine". The first book, "The Gunslinger" kind of disappointed me. It wasn't really super interesting and some bits were confusing, etc. I mean, I still gave it 4 stars because it was good. It just didn't reach my expectations. After finishing it I was questioning whether to even bother reading the rest of the series or not. I decided to just keep going. And I am so glad I did. As a lot of you might already know, King has a way with words that becomes almost addictive and you just can't stop reading. That was definitely the case here. The plot itself was so interesting in general but then you add in his writing talent and just... wow. The way he was able to switch between a bunch of different people's points of view and somehow have it NOT be confusing is pretty amazing. Sometimes there would be like 5 chapters in a row from 5 different points of view and it all fell in place perfectly and made complete sense. And the way he described the visual aspects of each scene was also pretty amazing. In the first book, he did okay with that but I still found myself personally using my own imagination to create the set of some of the scenes in my head. But this time I didn't have to do that at all which was a relief. Another pretty amazing thing is the fact that each character had their own personality. You might be thinking "Yeah, so? That's how it should be" and yes, it should, and you'd expect that with a few characters in general but King somehow managed to make even the most minor of characters their own person. I don't know, I personally find that... pretty amazing. (Okay I'll stop using "pretty amazing" now. I'm sure you get the idea.) Seriously though, Stephen King went above and beyond my original expectations here. And again, I'm so glad I decided to continue with the series.

King keeps us engrossed in this installment more than the first one.

Compared to part one, this story is completely different from it's predecessor. It never lets up, constantly running along this adventure along the Western Sea to find the magical extra-dimensional "Doors" which serve as gateways into the minds of different people in different time periods in our version of Earth. Extremely entertaining.
