Bunu kitapçıda okudum ama satın almadım. DS'nin bu yıl veya daha sonra okul öncesi başladığı zamanı hatırlamak istiyorum, çünkü bu deneyime dayanıyor ve çok sevimli bir hikaye.
Wow. I guess I never really knew what was going on in Sudan. I taught a boy who escaped at my first teaching job and couldn't stop thinking of him throughout the book. Egger does a nice job with this one.
"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." As a devotee to Stephen King's Dark Tower series, this first sentence of The Gunslinger (and ultimately the Dark Tower series) sends a tingle down my spine. From the starting of the series in 1970 to the finish, the publishing of The Dark Tower in 2004, King has crafted a universe arguably more diverse than that of Tolkien. The Gunslinger starts as it states, with an unnamed protagonist following a strange man across a desert. The writing is simple, the reading is fast and the plot builds as you follow the gunslinger and learn about his past. The story holds aspects of old westerns, fantasies and post-apocalyptic tales. What may surprise readers about this book and the entire series is that it contains very few tinges of the horror that Stephen King has used to make a name for himself. King shows a creativity that beats many fiction authors and tops most of his non-series novels. He weaves an intricate, detailed universe with some of the most amazing plot devices, characters and fantastic stories that I've ever read. Of King's bibliography, about 60% (a rough estimate) ties into this series in some way or another. My two favorite tie-ins are The Stand (my favorite stand-alone King novel) and Hearts in Atlantis. HIA is a collection of four short stories, one of which was altered and made into a mediocre movie starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. King has since revised The Gunslinger, adding about 60 pages to fix inconsistencies with the later plots. Purists might argue that this ruined the book, but I was unable to tell much of a difference between the writing styles of the new and older material, despite decades of years between the writing of each bit. Overall, this seven volume series is my favorite "book" ever, and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves fantastic fiction and an epic story that includes all those aspects of so many great fiction pieces: friendship, betrayal, trust, love, good and evil. When King says that the series had a life of it's own, I believe him.
