The Gunslinger


3 1/2 Stars

I have begun my way through Stephen King’s sci-fi epic series, The Dark Tower.  I actually read the first three books, like, fifteen years ago, then waited impatiently as future installments failed to come.  Well eventually the series got finished, and finally I am getting around to rereading it.

The first installment in the series is The Gunslinger, which introduces us to Roland and his quest to find the Dark Tower.   Throughout his trek across a dead world, bits of Roland’s past are slowly revealed, giving the book a nice flow.  It is slow but interesting.  The grand mystery of what the whole series is about is also slowly chipped away at, and one shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition.
