The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King, narrated by Frank Muller
The Drawing of the Three: The Dark Tower, Book 2 - Stephen King,Simon & Schuster Audio,Frank Muller

This is the second book in my re-read of the Dark Tower series, via audiobook.

 

For some reason this series alternates narrators. I can't figure that out? I guess it's not that important, but I much prefer George Guidall who narrated the first book, than Frank Muller, who narrated this one.

 

This audio actually brought my rating down by a half star. I love the story, but the narrator did not work well for me. I shall march onward with book 3 soon!

Anatomy and Drawing
Anatomy and Drawing - Victor Perard For the past ten years, the 1995* edition of ANANTOMY AND DRAWING has consistently been one of the most useful references in my art library.

Unlike similar texts, such as the highly acclaimed Andrew Loomis books, Victor Perard opts to simply show the reader hundreds of illustrations instead of spending a lot of time describing method and technique. Only ten or so pages are written in plain text in the entire book, with most of the book simply using labels to denote measurements or body parts when necessary. A lesser artist would suffer from this choice in direction, but Perard’s grasp on both proportion and motion ensures that no space is wasted or repetitive. From dynamic stick figures to superbly detailed bone and muscle structures, ANATOMY AND DRAWING shows the reader how to draw creatively as well as accurately. One of my favorite touches is the index at the end, which lists every muscle, where it's located, and its purpose in the body.

The only major problem with the book is that it’s tiny. It measures between 9.5x7 inches, leaving many pictures crammed together on every page. Some illustrations are less than a square inch in size. Given how precise proportions need to be in artwork, learning from small examples only makes the learning process all the more difficult. The text also neglects to mention how, if any, measuring instruments can be used to aid beginners. Finally, while bones and muscles are a major focus of the book, there isn’t a whole lot of material related to how fat layers over them. It may be an excellent book for intermediate artists, but I can’t give this edition of the book the full five stars that it deserves.

*The 1995 hardcover edition is not listed on Goodreads, but it appears to be the same book as the 1997 version.

The Drawing of the Three / Stephen King
The Drawing of the Three - Stephen King

While pursuing his quest for the Dark Tower through a world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, Roland is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into contemporary America.

Here he links 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.

 

 

Did-a-chick? Dum-a-chum? Dad-a-cham?

I’m as dazed as all the lobstrosities that lurk just a little too close for comfort in this book. Certainly I will never go to Red Lobster in the same frame of mind ever again! I found The Drawing of the Three to be more readable than The Gunslinger, so I think I will be able to continue in the series, although I still doubt that it will ever be a favourite.

Oh, all the connections that I could see in this novel to King’s own fiction, not to mention other writers! The quest tale, familiar to all fantasy readers, but a dark, western environment rather than the usual medieval-ish setting. Odetta/Detta was very reminiscent of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, while Eddie Dean reminded me a great deal of Jack Torrence of The Shining. There was even a quick reference to the movie version of The Shining, not to mention Flagg from The Stand. The doors to other realities on the beach reminded me strongly of Consider Phlebas by Iain Banks which has a similar device.

Lots of Tarot imagery and suggestions of an Egyptian connection with the concept of the ka. A busy, busy book in other words.

 

Book 221 of my science fiction & fantasy reading project.
