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.


What the Critics Say

"A compelling whirlpool of a story that draws one irretrievably to its center." (Milwaukee Sentinel)
"Brilliant, fresh and compelling - will leave you panting for more." (Booklist)

should have been a short story

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.
