Beginning September 6, I’ll be doing a reread of Stephen King’s THE DARK TOWER I: THE GUNSLINGER (first published in 1982, significantly revised in 2003) for Macmillan’s Criminal Element blog. This will a be a chapter a week review (every Tuesday) and it’s a whole lot more fun if I can get some other readers involved—if you don’t have a copy I’m sure most libraries carry one. I will do a write-up of each chapter and in the comments, hopefully, you can add to my piece with your own thoughts.
There’s a 2017 film on the way starring Idris Elba as Roland/The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black who Roland pursues. So the reread is a good way to get on board and re-familiarize yourself with the story.
