The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger

I finished reading The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger by Stephen King. There are eight books in the book series.

Warning: there is a little bit of violence and one sad part.

Before I begin my summary, I should say I have read the fourth book. My mother is a big fan of Stephen King. She had left the fourth book here and I read it a long time ago. I do plan on re-reading it since it didn’t really make sense to me because I hadn’t read the other three books. With the movie out, I decided to read the whole series.

In the book, A gunslinger named Roland is tracking a man in black. He names the man in black Walter. On his journey, he is tricked by the man in black to kill a whole town. He also meets a boy named Jake.  The boy is from another time period which closer to ours. Roland gets visions and advice about the travels ahead. One being that Roland has to kill Jake.  Jake does die, but Roland doesn’t actually kill him.

I did like this book. I have the second book, but I’m not reading it yet. I watched the movie yesterday and I will post about it on Tuesday. On Monday I will start listening to Horns by Joe Hill.
