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).

Confusingly interesting...

This book was confusing but interesting. I want to see it through to the end of the gunslinger's long journey, but I had some trouble keeping up with what was going on and why in this book. I've read that the second book is much better so I will read it. This book took some effort to continue till the end.

The Non Sample

WORST SAMPLE EVER!! Why do I want to read a forward, I want to read what the book is about!

Really can’t ask for more.

Roland is an extremely likable character and he becomes more so further in the series. King is excellent at painting a picture with words and making every character seem.. well.. alive. The movie does the book no justice. It’s quite actually an utter disgrace. Quit whining about the two page preview. It’s $10.. Do yourself a favor. Buy this book.
