    The Dark Tower, Books 1-3: The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three, and The Waste Lands de Stephen King (Valjeanne)
    Valjeanne: While The Gunslinger Book 1 is not one of my favorite books by Stephen King, one should read it to provide the backdrop to the sequels. The Drawing of the Three (especially) and The Waste Lands are much more engaging and two of King's most brilliant novels.… (més)

Liked it, did not love it. Was unsure if I would enjoy a western/ fantasy type of book, which is kind of how I viewed this book without much prior knowledge of the story. It didn't seem like the beginning of a series that I would end up devouring in a few months. However, I did become hooked on the story toward the end and thought I would give the next one a chance. Hoo boy am I glad I did. ( )

sometimes difficult to read, but the world building aspect is fascinating ( )

I think this is the third time I've read this book. The first time was in the mid to late 80s when I was reading everything of King's I could find. The second maybe 10 years later. I've now read it again, because I'm intending to read the whole Dark Tower series now that's it's finished (in the afterword to The Gunslinger, King notes that he doubts he will live long enough to finish it, so I'm very pleased that he has).
It's very different from most of his books and a little bit pretentious maybe, but that's forgivable as King obviously believes in and loves what he is writing. It reads a lot like one of those slightly dreamlike 70s fantasy novels that hark back to the pulps of the 30s, Moorcock's Elric books perhaps. It's a fun ride though, memorable and vivid at times, and feels like it sets things up well for the series. ( )

I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn't. Most of it bored.me but I have to admit the last chapter was very interesting ( )

This book was originally published in separate pieces so the book reads like a connected set of stories. This is all about the main character in this epic tale of The Dark Tower, Roland of Gilead. It includes a little bit of information about where Roland comes from and how his world is connected to ours and just a hint of what The Dark Tower is. It sets up the rest of the series.

Overall, I liked this book a lot, but I'm very glad it's so short. These stories don't flow well together and they are best appreciated as separate vignettes. Individually they are all brilliant. But they don't create a good arc for a novel. We're left wondering where this is going and what is really going on with this guy and the man in black and the tower he's chasing. It's no wonder his fans goaded him into pursuing this further. My internet research tells me that it was his fans who urged him to publish these stories in a single volume back in the early 80's and that outcry of support is probably what got him to write more books in this series.

...a stone, a leaf, an unfound door; of a leaf, a stone, a door. And of all the forgotten faces.
Naked and alone we came into exile. In her dark womb, we did not know our mother's face; from the prison of her flesh have we come into the unspeakable and incommunicable prison of this earth.
Which of us has known his brother? Which of us has looked into his father's heart? Which of us has not remained forever prison-pent? Which of us is not forever a stranger and alone?

...O lost, and by the wind grieved, ghost, come back again.
--Thomas Wolfe Look Homeward, Angel
