The Drawing Of Three

15 Nov

drawing of the three, The - Stephen King

This is the second book in The Dark Tower series of Stephen King.

I was very pleasantly surprised after the flatness of the first book, which in truth is really a prologue than a book of itself.  The first door hurls an injured Gunslinger into the mind of a cocaine smuggling junkie sweating onboard a flight from Bermuda, the second a crippled female of the 1960’s with a split personality and an attitude, the third being the person responsible for the cripples afflictions.  It was interesting how a stranger sees and copes with the differences between generations, environments, languages and so forth.

It is quite brave for such a writer to embark on a series of novels where by the beginning of book two the main character has lost fingers on one hand and toes on one foot, and a secondary character totally dependant upon a wheelchair.

Onto book three – The Waste Lands

    I had trouble getting into the Stephen King book I was given – though I did read his “On Writing” tips which was part of one of my writing courses

      My best bud [a King reader fan] has read that and found it all rather insightful.

      I read quite a few of his earlier books but then felt he lost the plot a little and wwas being paid per word, lol. There are some of his that are quite thick and the thickness of a book does influence me, often intimidates me.

      If you enjoyed the film versions, you will get so much more from the book.
