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.
I’m super excited to see a rerelease of this one with a great new cover! The movie news had everyone abuzz a few months back and it sent me right back into the series. I reread The Gunslinger for the first time since I was a teenager and I am really looking forward to working my way through the series in anticipation of what is sure to be an awesome (and terrifying) film.
Now 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.
