So if you are okay with reading such slow paced novels you can pick it up.
And then some
I am still wondering
Nope! No clue, it was clearly not my cup of tea
It doesn’t have anything to do with the content I guess; and those 2 stars are just my individual thoughts about the book. Sometimes you just have to accept that something isn’t made for you. It didn’t work for me but it might work for you. I tried keeping up but I just couldn’t felt the connection.
The Gunslinger is a great beginning to a series, but it is mysterious and sometimes too much enigmatic to the length, it becomes a problem of its own.
Roland The Gunslinger is chasing The Man in Black. Why? You don't know. From the beginning till the end, you have not explained everything, and when you begin to think that there will be an explanation for the events, it just raises more questions and ends with a beginning.
It is mysterious that is how I will describe this book. It is not perfect, but it is not a bad book either. It is short, but eloquently told the tale and the beginning of something amazing.
If you're a Stephen King fan, then I will recommend this to you, if you're looking for a good fantasy read, I will recommend it to you. If, however, you are not looking forward to investing yourself in a long series and find it tiring, then this book is not for you.as it is short and enigmatic but it is a really enjoyable book on its own and the character of Roland and The Man in Black are one of the best characters I have seen from Stephen King.
I will instead write my review of the book, its edition and print quality here. For the price, this book is extremely worth the money. Furthermore, this is the revised edition, therefore has a few more (30 to be exact) than the original print along with an introduction from the author. The book quality is what you pay for, paperback.
