Plot Summary

In this first novel in his epic fantasy masterpiece, Stephen King introduces listeners to one of his most enigmatic heroes, Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He 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 agonizing choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black. Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves listeners eagerly awaiting the next chapter. And the Tower is closer…

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton

The Gunslinger Audiobook Mp3 is one of my favorites. The narration is solid but not perfect. Character voices are fair there’s just some weird inflections/accentuations that make certain places fall flat or become confusing. The timing and emphasis is fundamental when you’re reading King due to his style, and it feels like this needed better direction to make sure it was read correctly.

For a first time reader, some parts may be confusing. But being intimately familiar with this book, I was only disappointed with the performance a handful of times at most, and it wasn’t enough to distract or spoil my enjoyment of the story.

Stephen King – The Gunslinger Audiobook is a great read and a similarly excellent listen, The audiobook, narrated by George Guidall is one of the best you will find. You can read my thoughts on it here.
