    Story
    (96)

    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 the 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 agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.

    Jacobus says: "A Surrealistic Western that almost feels familiar"
    "For a 1st part in a series, this was underwhelming"

    Story

    But having read The Stand I'm going to give the rest a go.

    I have every faith in S. King as a master storyteller so I'm guessing this will pay off in the future. The story isn't all bad of course. In fact it's pretty good. Just not something you'll remember next week. If at all.

    But do not fret. There are 6 more. And if the reviews are anything to go by, this should get very interesting.

    A note on the performance.
    I doubt anyone could fit the story better than this narrator. I felt continually reminded of Johnny Cash singing the song, The Man Comes Around.

    I've seldom found a narrator and a story fit so well toghether.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Aaron Brown says: "Unique Magic system, good plot twists."
    "My first venture into fantasy"

    And I'm not looking back. Even if you've never read fantasy you'll probably enjoy this book.
    Brilliant storytelling, wonderful setting. You'll be dying to know all the secrets and you'll mourn the characters when you finish.
