    Those who were left behind after the Rapture must now make a crucial decision. Each person must choose whether to receive the mark of the beast, or die. Never has faith in God been more important for the group of believers called the Tribulation Force, who now face danger on all sides. Valiantly, they continue to urge new followers to accept Christ's love.

    Overall

    I had pretty much lost interest in this series. The story tends to lag, going no where fast. While I do agree that the switch of narriators was distracting (the accents were HORRIABLE) the last 1/4 of the book brought out the greatness I had felt in the first and had hoped to feel again. I am not a religious person by any means but found myself very moved by the actions of characters in this book to pay the ultimate price for their beliefs. Truely powerful and emotional moments for characters the reader knows very little about. In fact, I think that adds all the more to it. Hopefully this kind of direct confrontation (between the 2 factions in the book and the reader's own views) will continue for the remaining 4 books.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Overall

    A slow and confusing start to a VERY good series. This was my first experiance with Steven King and the only reason I picked it up was by suggestion of a friend at work. In fact I almost didn't get the second book because I was basicly lost at the end of this one. Only Audible reviews convinved me to try to carry on and boy am I glad I did! Without giving it away the Dark Tower series is one part Clint Eastwood western, one part Mad Max, and a dash of Authorian mystisim tossed in. Once you get a grip on the story it truely is difficult to put down. While the narritor does a passable job, I do have to admit the Frank Muller, who does parts 2, 3, & 4, is a much prefered favorite for THIS story (his work in parts 8 & 9 of the Left Behind series is just ..... off). Anywho, while this opening chapter to a GREAT story is difficult to follow at times and a bit of a chore to get through, the payoff in further installments is quite worth it.
