Fantastic

Another fantastic novel by Stephen King. When I first read The Gunslinger (The First in the Dark Tower Novel) it felt to me, more like a Western. I had a vision of Clint Eastwood in a bad Western movie. I pushed through it as it's Stephen King and I expected that The Dark Tower series as a whole would get better and really bring out the parts of King's books that I love and that I have come to expect from the master that is Stephen King.

At the very start of The Drawing of the Three, it grabbed me. It struck me straight away as different from The Gunslinger and once this one grabbed me, it didn't let me go, not even for a second. Every word of this book drew me in and I was fully under the spell. It is a great novel and one that read more like a Fantasy.

If you are planning on reading The Dark Tower series and you are unsure about it, I urge you to read it anyway. Push your way through The Gunslinger if you have to because you will not regret it once you get to this novel.

The Drawing of the Three has me firmly in the Dark Tower series and I can't wait to read more of it.

A Great Book

More of a series of character introductions with little real headway made toward the Tower, but the characters are amazing, as are the circumstances under which they're introduced and it's written and performed with skill. As i said, there's not much distance made toward the Tower here or what even awaits them there, but the adventures the Gunslinger goes on to 'draw the three' are full of peril, wonder, intrigue, tension, drama and all with a surprising amount of humor throughout. The beach, the doors, the lobstrocities (dad-a-chum?) are wonderfully realised. Other than the vivid presence that is the Gunslinger, it's peppered with excellently written characters all-round with scenes tackled from multiple angles and points of view in way that makes such writing seem easy, when it certainly is not. A real 'page' turner (if there is such a thing in an audio book), often engrossing and an incredible performance from Frank Muller. I can't recommend it highly enough and can't wait to listen to The Wastelands to see how the journey continues...

Introduction of new characters and great narrator

I loved the audio version which is very vivid, the narrator’s voice and style are perfectly suited for the book. I am a big fan of Frank Muller!
