The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stephen King

Narrated By: George Guidall

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: January 2016

Duration: 8 hours 0 minutes


Soon to be 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).

    A must have! The narration is out of this world and the story is full of characters, scenes and tidbits of expression that keep you totally hooked.

    I am a big fan of Stephen King. But this has to be the most horrible book I have ever listen to. I kept waiting for it to get better and it didn't. Very disappointing.

    I stopped around the 7th chapter. I couldn’t get into the story at all, and the narrator was monotonous the seven chapters I listened to.

    thrilling and intense and I can't wait to listen to the trilogy
