Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King

King is a superb story teller and writer. This is one of his classic tales.

That said — it doesn’t really work for me. I prefer plots that are less confusing. More logical. I probably won’t continue to book #2 in the series.

The Gunslinger was first published in 1982 as a fix-up novel, joining five short stories that had been published between 1978 and 1981. King substantially revised the novel in 2003 …

The story centers upon Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger, who has been chasing his adversary, “the man in black,” for many years. The novel fuses Western fiction with fantasyscience fiction, and horror …

King started writing this novel in 1970 on a ream of bright green paper that he found at the library …

The 2017 film was based loosely on King’s series of books. It got negative reviews despite starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
