Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba!
In this second volume, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person's life in New York - here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. They also become the companions, forming a ka-tet, who will assist him on his quest to save the Dark Tower.
"King is a master at creating living, breathing, believable characters." (Baltimore Sun)
"This quest is one of King's best - communicates on a genuine, human level, but rich in symbolism and allegory." (Columbus Sunday Dispatch)
"An epic in the making." (Kirkus Reviews)

The story was a little thin, but the narration!!!
A bit cliched.
Compared to the first book, this was a little thin on the story.
Great narrator. Knew how to act, knew when to read, versus when to give a performance. His many voices make this work really well, though the story made me a little weary.
Frank Muller was made for this sort of work. Sad that he was taken in such a tragic way.
Much better than the first book
So even though this was much better than the first book, it still was not great. Hoping by the third book, I will experience what several friends and family members say about this book series.
