The Gunslinger

Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: George Guidall

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Duration: 7 hours 20 minutes


"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 ).

    good book

  • Augusts B

    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.

  • Ricky F

    The Niroshan could've been better.

  • David C

    Narration was good enough, I prefer Frank Mullers however.

  • Corey R

    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.

    This book is well written with an interesting concept.
