From the Flap:

The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three is the second volume in Stephen King's remarkable cycle of the Dark Tower, inspired in part by the Robert Browning narrative poem. The first volume, The Dark Tower, The Gunslinger, relates how Roland, the last gunslinger in a world that has "moved on," pursues and eventually catches up with the sorcerer known as the man in black. It is a tale of science-fantasy that is unlike any tale that Stephen King has ever written.

The second installment on the long and difficult path to the Dark Tower commences less than seven hours later. The man in black is dead, and The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three picks up the thread of Roland's odyssey upon a deserted beach of the Western Sea in that strange other-world that is so like--and yet so unlike--our own. Before he can find a doorway to sanctuary in our world, the gunslinger is savagely torn by weird creatures out of that menacing sea.

Stephen King himself writes of the DarkTower cycle: "This work seems to be my own Tower, you know: these people haunt me, Roland most of all. Do I really know what the Tower is?. . .Yes. . .and no. All I know is that the tale has called to me again and again over a period of seventeen years."

For which the reading public is ecstatic!

With ten full color illustrations and designs by the brilliant artist, Phil Hale.

I really liked this book and look forward to reading book 3. It bothers me that he called Odetta schizophrenic because she is not. She has multiple personality disorder. Schizos don't have different personalities, they have hallucinations. Maybe King just didn't know better back when the book was written but I'd like to see it revised. Maybe it has been and I obtained an old copy. I still love his work and have the utmost respect for him. He has always thoroughly researched his work so for him to mistake schizophrenia for multiple personality disorder was very surprising. Thank you for everything you do Stephen King.

Well...if you think you are in a bad situation and on the verge of despair you should see the problems that Roland, the last gunsliger, needs to handle in order to draw the three. I strongly recommend The Dark Tower series, it's a story you won't forget. Long days and pleasant nights my fellow readers.
