An interesting book, one which is almost completely devoted to introducing the characters (or most of the characters) that will be with Roland throughout his quest for the Dark Tower.

So far, though I'm a rabid fan of the four so-far released books in the Dark Tower series, The Drawing of the Three is perhaps my favorite yet, perhaps because it builds so steadily and cleverly introduces each new character in such a fashion that you (or rather, Roland) becomes them, for a little while. Further, the climactic "Roland in New York" sequence had me laughing, frightened, fascinated, and left exhausted when it was all done. It managed that tightrope act of "funny because it's strange" and "desperate situation requiring drastic measures."

This book is well written and excellently paced. It describes things through metaphors very well, and I was so intrigued by it that I sped through it and the next 2 books. I can't wait for book 5 to come out!
