Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA. 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.

Any additional comments?

The first book is a must read to understand the rest of the book series. The rest of the series is fantastic, and thankfully narrated by another person. It took me a long time to get through the first book via audio reading and reading it on kindle. But stick to it! The next book makes it worth it!
