The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2) by Stephen King

The epic journey, the pilgrim continues his journey In searcheth of The Dark Tower. The Gunslinger Roland enters new dimensions new doors three to be exact in search of The Three individuals which he his fated to be with.
The story is mix of many settings starting in The western seafront with The Gunslinger and dangerous Lobstrosities and then to 1980’s a heroin addict and mobsters in P.O.V mode for The first of The Three ‘The Prisoner’.
Roland The Gunslinger also pays a visit to the other 2 candidates The Lady Of The Shadows and The Pusher which sweep you back to 1960’s and 1980’s.
The story is really written well with humorous undertones and a healthy dose of sociopathic and schizophrenic characters. There’s a bit of Love in the air too!
“Even the damned love”
The Gunslinger talks a lot about Ka, Ka “signifies life-force, consciousness, duty and destiny. In the Vulgate, or low speech, it also means a place to which an individual must go”.

You really get to like these characters King has developed and get to laugh along with the Gunslinger as he immerses himself in different worlds, makes me reminisce of the Crocodile Dundee movie where the guy had never been to a city in the U.S before.
“The yellow cars were public conveyances called tac-sees or cabs or hax. The tribes which drove them, the mortcypedia told him where two, Spicks and Mockies. To make one stop,you held your hand up like a pupil in a classroom.” LoL

Mahfah! Mahfah! Good stuff!
