The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King
“Beyond the reach of human range
A drop of hell, a touch of strange”
I cannot review this book because I have no idea what I just read. HOWEVER, I have heard good things about the series as a whole…so I might give t
he next book another try…like when I feel an itch to read something pretty obscure.
Feel free to inform me on anything that I missed, but here’s a rough summary, Some spoilers may be included:
The gunslinger is on this mission to find the Man in Black to find some Dark Tower. He’s traveling in a desert following his trail, he finds a boy they keep going over the desert and they go through a mountain. There’s a shooting in a town and some weird mountain creatures that make the book almost exciting. There are some flashbacks that give some semblance to who the gunslinger is. This is what I got from that. 1. he was raised to be a gunslinger, 2. his dad was royalty? 3. girls want his wiener a lot.
I’m not going to cover what actually happens at the end, because I don’t understand what even happened at the end–some sort of reenactment of the first verses of Genesis? “Let there be light”
I am truly so confused.
