about roland deschain of gilead

The Dark Tower is a series of novels written by Stephen King, who credits inspiration for this work to a poem by Robert Browning ("Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came"). The Dark Tower was also made into a film released in 2017, starring Idris Elba as Roland Deschain.

In this 8 book series, Stephen King tells of the quest of the last gunslinger, and his journey to find The Dark Tower so he may save the worlds. Along the way he does meet friends, who he trains into gunslingers. He also loses friends and loves. But he only sees the Tower.

There are enemies, fearsome ones. They, the ka-tet, must stand and be true, to defeat these foes. And they meet the author of their tale who almost doesn't finish the story...

I love Roland and his ka-tet. I love the story Mr. King told so beautifully. And I love how this tale weaves in and out of different stories, and you can only tell this if you have read Roland's story.

May your days be long upon this earth...
