Throwback Thursday: The Gunslinger

Another week has almost past. Which is crazy! 


Here is another "older" book that i think deserves more readers and people to talk about. And since i am trying to keep posts shorter, lets just get into it! 

The Dark Tower 1: The Gunslinger

Author: Stephen King
Genre: Fantasy, Epic Fantasy
Release Date: July, 2003
Buy throughBook (german version), Amazon. de (english version),
Add to: Goodreads

Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger, is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey into good and evil, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own. In his first step towards he powerful and mysterious Dark Tower, Roland encounters an alluring woman named Alice, begins a friendship with Jake, a kid from New York and faces an agonizing choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black. 

Why i recommend it: 

For one it is Stephen King. 
And then it is Fantasy. Epic one at that. 

The story itself is very unique. And interesting. 

This story really sucked me into it. The world is interesting and fantastically written. Roland is really great. 

I really can't describe exactly why it is so fantastic or worth the read, but honestly, this is one of the best fantasy books i have ever read, and i find it horrible how few people read this, especially those that love fantasy. 

So if you love fantasy. 
If you want to try King and are not into horror or thriller or his more typical stuff. 

Just give this book a try.
