The Drawing of the Three de Stephen King

  1. 20
    The Talisman de Stephen King (Valjeanne)
    Valjeanne: A real page-turner collaboration between Peter Straub and Stephen King! More "flipping" between alternate dimensions, shape-shifting good guys and bad guys, and a hero you'll love. :-)

Listed to the Audiobook on my commute.

Very good book, not as good as some of the others (especially slow in the middle) but the beginning and end are great.

Very intersting with Roland waking up on the beach - the lobstrocies are great as it adds another level to the series that the reader had not expected.

The third door is the most interesting in my opinion and really picks up after that. ( )

Audiobook:

This book got...better...for lack of a better term than its predecessor (and I would rate it a 3.5, while book one was a 3, but not yet close enough to round up to a 4), maybe because we finally had more people to truly attach ourselves to than Roland. I laughed at the annoying lobstrocities, and cheered, and grew a lot thoughtful in the oddest places in this book (more because of the current social relevance to some of the topics, than anything because of the book itself).

I like having people to balance Roland as our person at the center, who really is great a survival and heading for the tower, but terrible at being alive or good to himself/anyone else. I have a lot of feelings about the pusher, and I'm still not positive I like entirely the way certain things about Odetta's medical conditions were covered, but I left the last pages pretty peaceful and looking forward to the next book.

A escolha dos três, segundo volume da série A Torre Negra, lança o protagonista Roland de Gilead ao século XX à medida que ele se aproxima da preciosa Torre Negra, sede de todo o tempo e de todo o espaço. Após a morte do Homem de Preto, Roland se vê diante de três portas que o levam do Mundo Médio para a Nova York de três épocas diferentes. Em 1987, ele encontra Eddie Dean, um viciado em heroína que está tentando entrar em Manhattan contrabandeando um quilo de cocaína pura. Em 1964, descobre Odetta Holmes, uma negra paraplégica, ativista do movimento pelos direitos civis, cuja mente abriga também a malévola Detta Walker. Com a ajuda de Roland e Eddie, essas duas personalidades se tornarão Susannah Dean, que se unirá ao ka-tet do pistoleiro, o círculo de pessoas cujo ka está interligado. A terceira e última porta leva Roland ao ano de 1977 onde ele terá que confrontar o temível Jack Mort, psicopata responsável pela morte de Jake Chambers e pela dupla personalidade de Susannah. Mais uma vez, Stephen King entrelaça detalhes de fantasia, terror e realismo na continuação desta saga épica que é uma das obras mais famosas do autor. ( )

Most authors wouldn’t start the second installment in a seven-book series by maiming the protagonist. But The Drawing of the Three was written by Stephen King, so hey, let’s chop off a few of the gunslinger’s fingers—he doesn’t need the dexterity to, I don’t know, operate a pistol, right?

This early crippling directs much of the ensuing story: the gunslinger’s wounds become infected, and he (Roland) spends most of the book on the edge of death, searching for medicine. But he never loses sight of his larger quest: finding The Dark Tower, the supposed center of everything—for his universe and all others. In the previous book, Roland came a step closer to the Tower by catching the man in black, a sorcerer who told the gunslinger’s fortune from a deck of tarot cards. Those picked included The Prisoner, The Lady of Shadows, and The Pusher. Roland “draws” the people these cards represent by crossing planes into versions of twentieth-century New York.

It’s… kind of underwhelming.

The Tower is a vague goal that becomes no clearer. The people Roland drags into his world are vivid characters, each with their own handicaps, but how they’ll help the gunslinger reach the Tower is equally hazy. In total, there’s more backstory here than plot, along with some unnecessary, self-referential mentions of The Shining (King’s 1977 bestseller, later turned into the classic movie of the same name).

There are interesting bits, of course—a Stephen King book is never wholly dull, and the connections between the New York characters are fascinating once the threads come to light. So are the rapid point-of-view shifts during the action sequences; most authors couldn’t pull off this level of head-hopping without disorienting the reader. (Although even King stumbles here and there; skipping from one consciousness to another is a tricky business.)

Still, I finished the story wondering if it—and perhaps the series—had been led astray by King’s famously improvisational style: a “plotter” (an author who outlines before writing) might have packed more of import into The Drawing of the Three than a true “pantser” (an author who writes by the seat of his/her pants) like King. Part of me feels like I could have skipped this book and gone on to the next in the series without missing much.

The gunslinger might even agree; I bet he’d like his fingers back.

The gunslinger came awake from a confused dream which seemed to consist of a single image: that of the Sailor in the Tarot deck from which the man in black had dealt (or purported to deal) the gunslinger's own moaning future.
