Dark Tower #01: The Gunslinger by Stephen King
Dark Tower #01: The Gunslinger

Kristen Krauter, September 2, 2011

This book is the very slow start to the dark tower series, which is the crowning achievement of Stephen Kings career. The writing of this series has taken a lifetime for King to accomplish.

Although it starts out slow and can be hard to get through, in fact, this book weeds out the weak before the real journey begins on this epic fantasy adventure. If you make it through the desert with the gunslinger, you've proven you are indeed up for the journey. Hold on tight, because the rest of the series is going to be a wild ride. Like life, sometimes you have to get through the slow and the boring in order to experience the amazing and wonderful. After all, how else would you know a good thing when it's right in your hands?
