The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King


The Gunslinger

“The Interloper, The Lord of Flies, The Man in Black cometh!”

Stephen King our modern day Charles Dickens takes you on beginning of an epic journey with Roland ‘The Gunslinger’ in this poignant tale. The story takes us through the past and future and the coming of age of a man and a boy in search of The Tower.

‘The more you eat the more you toot!’ or should I say the more you re-read it the more you will appreciate it, that’s what I felt second time round reading the novel and also third time via audiobook. I felt I picked up more clues to the whole Dark Tower experience.

One person from the past and one from the future pitted together against the man in black in searcheth of The Tower.
A Hawk pays no coinage to love or morals is The Gunslinger a Hawk?
Is The Man in Black a priest?

Verily as The Gunslinger walketh in the shadow of The Man in Black he feareth no Man!

So, what’s the deal with The Dark Tower?
