Erweckt epische Bilder
Ein Buch, das Bilder im Kopf aufsteigen lässt, die eine zerstörte und tote Welt zeigen, besser als jeder Film es könnte. Das ganze Buch wirkt allerdings ziemlich interpretiert. Ein wenig wie ein Tim Burton Film. Guter Zeitvertreib!
The Dark Tower 1. The Gunslinger
THE GUNSLINGER is the first volume in Stephen King´s epic Dark Tower series. The Dark Tower is Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, due in cinemas July 28, 2017.
In this first novel in his epic fantasy masterpiece, 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 a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.
In his first step towards the powerful and mysterious Dark Tower, Roland encounters an alluring woman named Alice, begins a friendship with Jake, a kid from New York, and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.
Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, THE GUNSLINGER leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
And the Tower is closer...
