I was really excited to start this series, but now after reading the first book I can tell that I have a long ways to go. This book had moments of fun, but in the end it was just an introduction to a much larger story.

Loved this book decades ago and it still holds up. Can't wait for the movie version!

This is the first book of Stephen King's Magnum Opus. It is a combination of spaghetti western, occult, and science fiction all tied together by romantic and philosophical ideals.
It is very short and gets very dark at certain points: this paired with the wonderful narration of George Guidall is why I believe all should give it a listen.

What disappointed you about The Gunslinger?
This book was one of the most boring things I have ever experienced. I toughed it out because everyone said how great the series is. I almost quit several times because it was so slow. I did enjoy book 2 more than this one, so I'm glad I got through this. It was rough.

little of this book has any significance other than to convey the mood of the world. The story, when, it finally arrives in one burst of information, is intriguing and very nearly makes the previous monotonous reading worthwhile.

At no point of the story I felt that I cared too much for the protagonist. I felt that the novellas with backstory were meant to tell me something, but the whole point was lost on me.
