The Gunslinger by Stephen King #FirstChapterFirstParagraph

The Gunslinger

Book One of The Dark Tower series

Written By: Stephen King

2003 edition

First Chapter First Paragraph:

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

The desert was the apotheosis of all deserts, huge, standing to the sky for what looked like eternity in all directions. It was white and blinding and waterless and without feature save for the faint, cloudy haze of the mountains which sketched themselves on the horizon and the devil-grass which brought sweet dreams, nightmares, death. An occasional tombstone sign pointed the way, for once the drifted track that cut its way through the thick crust of alkali had been a highway. Coaches and buckas had followed it. The world had moved on since then. The world had emptied.”

*GASP* I just love the way Stephen King writes. Isn’t that a fantastic way to start a book? So excited to be reading this again. Can’t wait to watch the movie!
