Written on: 12/01/2009 by towercircus (1 review written)

The Dark Tower took me a long time to get through but has been worth it. I just finished reading it last night and overall it was good. Read it! The style is very different form Stephen King's usual but leaves you wondering and wanting for more. If you're going to read this then be prepared. Once you read one you will end up reading all of them. There are seven volumes. It took SK 20 years to write it so how long will it take you to read it. Read the book, not later but now. Get to the… Read Full Review

I would recommend this book because it is the first book in a wonderful series. It's kind of weird, but believe me, it's worth it to just keep reading… Read Full Review

“This is a fantastic book to start a fantastic series....”

Written on: 15/07/2008 by ppartin (1 review written)

This is a fantastic book to start a fantastic series. What's challenging about it is that much of it sets up Books 2, 3 and 4 and some readers want more instant gratification in their read… Read Full Review

“In 'The Gunslinger', Stephen King introduces readers...”

Written on: 08/08/2006 by Dreadlocksmile (358 reviews written)

In 'The Gunslinger', Stephen King introduces readers 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… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2006 by suthosharko (1 review written)

Well, feel like I will be swimming against the tide with this review. I was very much a fan of Stephen King's earlier works but had not read much in recent years. Last was Dreamcatcher which was great.

Had seen the Dark Tower series in recent times on the bookshelves but wasn't really motivated to buy into it as I didn't really see Stephen King as a fantasy series writer, which is what I thought this was. My wife however, bought me "The Gunslinger" (the amended versions with the forward from… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2006 by jsutton (1 review written)

I thoroughly enjoyed The Dark Tower: Gunslinger. The world that Stephen King created is amazing. Ok I will sum the book up for you. There is a gunslinger, which is something like a western day sheriff, he is chasing a man in black across a vast desert. In his journey he runs into a town named Tull and there he meets Allie. The man in black later named Walter O' Dim left a trap for the gunslinger,Roland. Walter brought a man back from the dead and told Allie the # 19 would unlock all his… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2005 by sandemp (5 reviews written)

Before I start the review properly, I'm going to let you in on the (not so) secret fact, that I am a huge fan of the works of Stephen King, and have read almost everything he has ever written (including some non-fiction). After reading that statement, you might be surprised that until this month I had never managed to read any of the books in the Dark Tower series. But it's true, I'm not really sure why I hadn't, I suppose part of it is that I like my books to be as self-contained as possible… Read Full Review

Hj De Villiers's Response to sandemp's Review

Written on: 22/12/2005

Although the book is well written, you will soon be disappointed when you read the next two books in the series, the "winning" formula of the mystery man soon gets boring. He never gets to his destination and the other carracters in the story are bland. The author's attemt at a pshycological thriller is in my opinion a failure.

“Stephen King, The Dark Tower: Gunslinger - Good...”

Written on: 04/11/2004 by weesteev (40 reviews written)

Stephen King, The Dark Tower: Gunslinger - Good opening book to a fantastic series by the master horror/sci-fi writer. The book starts quite slowly but the Tull battle at the beginning and the flashbacks to Roland's youth (specifically the fight with his teacher) are fantastic. The story whets the appetite for the future series… Read Full Review
