The book, “The Gunslinger” by Stephen King is the first book in “The Dark Tower” series. The main character Roland who is the gunslinger is trying to reach The Man in black that is suppose to inform him about the Tower. Roland is chasing The Black in Man across the desert and goes through the Town Tull. He leaves the town and kills everyone because they were going to kill him. They thought he was the Antichrist.
Later along in the story he meets a boy named Jake, who is from another world (our world).
After crossing through the mountains and defeating the Slow Mutants he meets The Man in Black Roland leaves Jake to die because the Man in black makes him. After Roland finds out all he needs to he kills The Man in Black and falls asleep.
Conflict is what the story is based on. The two opposing forces are the Man in Black who is some sort of priest and the Gunslinger Roland who is that last of his kind and need to reach the Tower. In the story Roland must catch the Man in Black who he has followed for 7 years so he can find out information about The Tower.
I really enjoyed this book. Something about the story made me keep reading. Roland was a completely immoral character who killed people with out thinking twice about it. Even thought that is nothing like me I understood his actions and the way he thought. “The Gunslinger” is a book that I would definitely recommend to anyone.
