by Stephen King

  • Date began: May 29, 2012
  • Genre: Fiction, Fantasy
  • Project: n/a
  • Reading list: Summer 2012
  • Back of the book: In the first book of this brillian series, now expanded and revised by the author, Stephen King introduces readers 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 his desolate world, which frighteningly mirrors our own, Roland pursues the man in black, encounters an alluring woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the boy from New York called Jake. Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
  • Awards: None that I know of except the “one of Laura’s favorite book series” award. That should count for something, right?
