(The Dark Tower #1)
By: Stephen King
First published in 1982
In The Gunslinger, 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 a desolate world which frighteningly mirrors our own.
I am reading this book for the Stephen King/Horror theme week over at the #AYearaThon GR group. So far it hasn’t quite been my cup of tea. There have been some sentences regarding women that I’ve rolled my eyes at. Stephen King isn’t one of my favourite authors – I don’t dislike his books, but I don’t particularly like them, either. My sister said that one of the books – I think it was the third – had some really scary stuff in it, so I wanted to check the series out.
