Quick Review: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1), Stephen King

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, #1)The Gunslinger by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was supposed to say a number of things about the book but Mr Stephen King himself preempted me with the accompanying ‘Afterword’ so there is nothing left for me to do but read the remaining books to know more. It’s a fast-paced work– for a novel that took twelve years to complete, that says something about his talent in storytelling. Every paragraph matters; every character is connected to the main story and it makes me wonder what had happened to Cuthbert and Jamie. Then again, that is a different story.

My favorite line?
The face was that of a starving idiot.
