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)

I Despise Stephen King
Loved Everything About It
This is about a thousand times better than the Gunslinger. From the narration to the story, it's compelling and I had a much harder time stopping between sections than I did with the Gunslinger. The narrator really makes this story come to life. Each character is distinct, he switches between them effortlessly and it's easy to tell who is speaking when. I did have a hard time at first listening to him, but before I knew it, I was acclimated and am deliriously happy that he's the narrator for the next few books in the series.
