Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba!
In the first book of this brilliant series, Stephen King introduces listeners to one of his 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 frighteningly mirrors our own, Roland tracks The Man in Black, encounters an enticing woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the boy from New York named Jake.
Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves listeners eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

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!
