Summary:

"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 ).

    Narration was good enough, I prefer Frank Mullers however.

    Fantastic book, loved the narrator , I am really enjoying this app and I am looking forward to the next book in the series, the audio books app makes my long drives so much more enjoyable.

  • Shana D

    Loved it kept me hanging on until the end and at this moment I'm already listening to book 2.

  • Daniel Daviault

    Great start for a great series... Remember that Stephen King's style is a long river leading to the ocean. All his books tend to be slow and descriptive

  • Renee Gray

    Not the best for me. I lost interest early with the story. I still have 45 minutes left and not sure if I will finish it. I do love Stephen King but this is my least favorite book.

  • Colby Butterfield

    This book is well written with an interesting concept.

  • Melody Troth

    A good book. The audio helped me finally get to sleep on a stormy night.

  • Jerry Vobejda

    Lots of unnecessary description....could have been much shorter

  • james boles

    I kept hearing great things about this series. the book absolutely let me down. I would have dropped it if not for the narrator.

  • Tom Huebner

    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.
