The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower, Book 1by Stephen King
Synopses & Reviews
In the first book of this brilliant series, Stephen King introduces readers to one of his most enigmatic heroes, 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 frighteningly mirrors our own, Roland pursues The Man in Black, encounters an alluring woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the Kid from Earth called Jake. Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
"An impressive work of mythic magnitude. May turn out to be Stephen King's greatest literary achievement." Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Brilliant, fresh, and compelling...will leave you panting for more." Booklist
Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever read. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement.
Join the quest for the elusive Dark Tower.
