Dark Tower I Audiobook Summary
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.
A #1 national bestseller, 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.
Inspired in part by the Robert Browning narrative poem, “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” The Gunslinger is “a compelling whirlpool of a story that draws one irretrievable to its center” (Milwaukee Sentinel). It is “brilliant and fresh…and will leave you panting for more” (Booklist).
Dark Tower I Audiobook Reviews
I like how King explores string theory and parallel universes here. This story is like a perfectly balanced soup we sometimes eat at a restaurant that’s not too much of this or where it’s not lacking in that. The mixed in genres, The Hobbit, King Arthurian legend, Doc Holiday, Biblical references and of course, horror are beautifully written. He weaves in other stories in here like, The Talisman, Insomnia, IT, and even Pet Sematary, (the dark magic Crystal that let you travel to the land of the dead in his later D.T. volumes). The villains in these series are as intriguing to me as the enigmatic, archetype gunslinger is. And they range in variety as they do in lethality. Werewolves, ghosts, skin changers, artificial intelligence robots & trains, demons, rogue gunslingers, witches, evil men, sorcerers, were-spiders and even creatures related to Pennywise the clown. I suppose that like Roland, if you don’t have much of an imagination, then you should read a senseless love novel where there’s infidelity like in these tube soap operas and silly reality t.v. shows where people make a fool of themselves on national television.
