The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower Series

Hi my fellow bookworms. I recently finished the first book in the The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, The Gunslinger. The book starts off quite slow and I have to admit it didn’t really get my attention at the beginning. However, the story gets very gripping towards the middle and I couldn’t put the book down until the end. This book certainly ends with a mystery, leaving the reader wanting to know more about Roland (Gunslinger) and the tower, that is the genius of Mr King’s writing. Even if you are like me, not really into stories in the western type settings, you will still find yourself drawn to this book. I will definitely be reading the next book which is The Drawing of the Three.

I was excited to hear that it has been turned into a movie which is releasing in August this year.  I saw the official trailer and it looks amazing!
So the only question left is: what is my rating for this book? I would say it deserves a 4 out of 5 stars, definitely worth checking out.

As always let me know your thoughts in the comments below….Happy reading!
