Publisher Description

Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba

“An impressive work of mythic magnitude that may turn out to be Stephen King’s greatest literary achievement” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), The Gunslinger is the first volume in the epic Dark Tower Series.

A #1 national bestseller, The Gunslinger introduces readers to one of Stephen King’s most powerful creations, Roland of Gilead: The Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting figure, a loner on a spellbinding journey into good and evil. In his desolate world, which mirrors our own in frightening ways, Roland tracks The Man in Black, encounters an enticing woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the boy from New York named Jake.

Inspired in part by the Robert Browning narrative poem, “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” The Gunslinger is “a compelling whirlpool of a story that draws one irretrievable to its center” (Milwaukee Sentinel). It is “brilliant and fresh…and will leave you panting for more” (Booklist).

Take a journey into his world...

The Gunslinger, the first book in Stephen King’s classic series, was a book that had me wondering if I would want to read any other books in the series because of an unfortunate twist that happened near the end of the book. Still, it was a good enough story to make me feel that it might be worth it to read the second book, knowing that if the second book was not much better than this one, I could stop immediately after that book. This is almost entirely a good book, though! I won’t spoil anything that happens, but for readers who are disappointed with the twist that happens so close to the end of the book, the second book definitely makes up for it! It’s the only downside to an otherwise enjoyable start to a series that just gets better with each book! I’ve only read the first four books, but I certainly plan to complete the series(with the exception of the graphic novels; I’m simply not interested.) If you like fantasy-adventure stories, join the gunslinger on his quest!

Best story ever told

I’ve read the seven books several times. I still get all the feels in all the same spots. If you haven’t read them, do yourself a favor and start here
