A long prologue

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.

Nearly Perfect

Love the story, love the pace just not a fan of Mr. Guidall's whiney Jake voice. He's a gunslinger for the man Jesus' sake! Remember the face of your father and show some respect...

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

Not great

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.

Too Strange

just too difficult to follow the storyline. Perhaps I will get the next book to see if I can catch on. Performance was excellent.

My favorite book.

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.
