Publisher’s Summary

Stephen King’s epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA.

In this first novel in his epic fantasy masterpiece, Stephen King introduces listeners 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 echoes our own.

In his first step towards the powerful and mysterious Dark Tower, Roland encounters an alluring woman named Alice, begins a friendship with Jake, a kid from New York, and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.

Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves listeners eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

And the Tower is closer….

    Bad first book, horrible narrator. A must read.

    Any additional comments?

    The first book is a must read to understand the rest of the book series. The rest of the series is fantastic, and thankfully narrated by another person. It took me a long time to get through the first book via audio reading and reading it on kindle. But stick to it! The next book makes it worth it!

    One of my favourites. The narration is solid but not perfect. Character voices are fair there’s just some weird inflections/accentuations that make certain places fall flat or become confusing. The timing and emphasis is fundamental when you’re reading King due to his style, and it feels like this needed better direction to make sure it was read correctly.

    For a first time reader, some parts may be confusing. But being intimately familiar with this book, I was only disappointed with the performance a handful of times at most, and it wasn’t enough to distract or spoil my enjoyment of the story.
