Library Happenings

“The Gunslinger” by Stephen King 

Micro Review by Kari Denison


“Roland is the last of his kind. He is the sole existing gunslinger in a rugged world on the search for the “Man In Black.” On a journey in a land inspired by the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,” Roland’s mission is tangled with a woman, a young boy, the dark tower and dimensions that transcend time and space.”
