More Worlds than One!
Me, I can't believe I waited thirty years to read THE DARK TOWER series, but when I did, I read them straight through, volumes 1 through 7 without a stop (well, I did get some sleep and meals, I guess. I hardly remember, like Roland, I suppose. Time doesn't have much meaning in these worlds).
In THE DRAWING OF THE THREE, King builds Roland Deschain's second Ka-Tet by sending the gunslinger through three doors on the edge of the Western Sea. In one door, marked "The Prisoner," he finds Eddie Dean, a heroine addict; in a second door, he draws the conflicted "Lady of the Shadows," Detta/Odetta/Suzanna Holmes; and from the third door, "Death," he encounters Jack Mort.
All of this time, Roland is dying of blood poisoning, fighting for his life, a vision of The Dark Tower constantly plaguing him. Was he right to let the boy who could have been his son, Jake Chambers, fall to his death below the railroad trestle as the dark man taunted him with the knowledge of the Tower? Is it Roland's ka to let everyone he loves die in his quest for the Tower? How can he form a new ka-tet knowing they all will die?
You will not understand how the universe hangs together, the nature of heroism or courage, or what makes a true gunslinger until you have read THE DARK TOWER. And THE DRAWING OF THE THREE is the second logical step on the way to the Tower, where Roland learns that there are indeed more worlds than one.

bit of a disappointment after strong series start
Bit of a disappointment after the brilliance of the Gunslinger. Howver, series picks up again later so worth the read
