    Story
    (173)

    Drawing on unprecedented interviews with former Wal-Mart executives and a wealth of staggering data�including facts such as this: Americans spend $36 million an hour at Wal-Mart stores, this text is an intimate look at a business that is dramatically reshaping the American economy.

    Michael says: "Excellent, Balanced View"
    "Intriguing"
    Overall

    As the summary of the book states, it's a rare look into the secretive workings of the world's largest retailer. If you've ever shopped at Wal-Mart, as you undoubtedly have, this book is a must. It tells the story of the store's humble beginnings to it's present day effect over global economy, for better or worse.

    Story

    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.

    Valerie says: "Just As Wonderful as I Remembered!"
    "A slow start"
    Overall

    The first book in an epic series, it takes off to a rather slow start as you are first introduced to Roland, last of the Gunslingers, wandering across his world, which has moved on. The book takes on a surreal feeling as though Stephen King doesn't exactly know which direction he's taking the story, merely free writing the entire title. For this reason, I give it a three star rating, as it is rather uninspiring to listen to it on it's own. However, should you continue to follow the story of the Gunslinger over the next several books, you'll realize the connections King has initiated with this book to the later titles, and come to appreciate it. In all, if you're willing to commit to the series and purchase all the books, you'll enjoy this title. If you're reaching out of your normal genre for something new, I would recommend purchasing books one and two together, as the second book is where the story really begins to shine and come together.
