Everyone is familiar with the standard Western plot of the righteous Sheriff versus the sleazy villain. Characters seemingly embodying, the essence of good and evil in a clash of wills, accompanied by epic horseback chases and midday showdowns. This tale takes a much different approach to the portrayal of western stories that we have grown accustomed. The Gunslinger offers the reader a western story embedded with the raw powers of the supernatural. A villain armed the powers of necromancy, and a hero who walks the thin line between good and evil.
Old School Wednesdays is a weekly Book Smugglers feature. We came up with the idea towards the end of , when both Ana and Thea were feeling exhausted from the never-ending inundation of New and Shiny and often over-hyped books.
What better way to snap out of a reading fugue than to take a mini-vacation into the past?
Every second Wednesday of the month, the next book in the Dark Tower cycle will be reviewed and discussed here. All readers — those new to the Dark Tower, and those who have traveled the path before — are welcome to join the ka tet! He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own.
Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake. This new edition of The Gunslinger has been revised and expanded throughout by King, with new story material, in addition to a new introduction and foreword.
It also includes four full-color illustrations in the hardcover and trade paperback formats.
It is a journey that spans thirty years, seven novels eight, if you count The Wind Through the Keyhole — which we will be reading on this readalong, in its chronological order after Wizard and Glass , a short story, and tie-in graphic novels from Marvel.
It is also — all cards on the table — my favorite series of all time.
But, as Stephen King says in his afterword to the last, heartbreaking lines of The Dark Tower, this is a series about the journey moreso than the destination. For some personal context: it is rare that I get to enjoy a re-read of a series. This has become more true over the past seven years, after starting The Book Smugglers, with the daily reading and reviewing schedule that comes with running a book review blog and going to grad school, and juggling a full-time job, and running a fledgeling publishing house, and… you get the picture.
