"An impressive work of mythic magnitude that may turn out to be Stephen King's greatest literary achievement" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), The Gunslinger is the first volume in the epic Dark Tower Series.

A #1 national bestseller, The Gunslinger introduces readers to one of Stephen King's most powerful creations, Roland of Gilead: The Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting figure, a loner on a spellbinding journey into good and evil. In his desolate world, which mirrors our own in frightening ways, Roland tracks The Man in Black, encounters an enticing woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the boy from New York named Jake.

Inspired in part by the Robert Browning narrative poem, "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came," The Gunslinger is "a compelling whirlpool of a story that draws one irretrievable to its center" (Milwaukee Sentinel). It is "brilliant and fresh…and will leave you panting for more" (Booklist).

I hated the ending the first time I read it.

Over time, I realized it was the only way it could have ended. Its absolutely worth it.
In my opinion it's absolutely worth reading the first 4 books regardless of the last 3. The last 3 are quite a bit different in style, as he wrote them many years later, and I think you'll find a lot less people who enjoyed them. That said, you can read the first 4 without feeling like you're missing out in the last 3 should you choose not to continue. And yes the last book had definitely left people with a sour taste. But I actually liked it personally.

Is it worth getting into this series? I remember reading that the last book was not received well and left a sour taste in many fan's mouth.

Don't want to start a series if it's known that it'll not end well.

First 4 books are solid and worth the read. I still liked the series as a whole, but I read it all back to back when the final book came out so I didn't have a sour GRRM type of resentment

Absolutely worth it. The ending is divisive but I think it's a great ending that works well with the themes of the story.

Thank, OP!
Read the first four books when this first came out and then ... nothing. King wouldn't finish the series. I kept thinking he was going to die before he finishes. And then he almost did. Luckily he is still kickin', finished the series, and then some.

This book is the "gateway drug" to one of King's best works! So many elements, and so many of his previous (&on-going) books are brought into play. The ending is surprising. If you require consoling upon completion of the series, there's a subReddit for that. Many of the folks on that site have read this over and over again.
Enjoy the Ka journey!

Stephen King — 'The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.' Such a good book!

My only gripe is King's ego explodes in/on the last book. So many times I was like "Really? Get over yourself"

My only hope is someone who read the book make a decent TV/movie series. Its not a horror novel...stop trying to make it 'scary' because King wrote it.

I really want to see Eddie on the mono-rail/train telling the diaper joke.

I I like King but sadly, I just couldn't get into this. Granted I tried reading this series over 15 years ago. I wonder if I should try again

I do think King's earliest works were his best- Carrie, Shining, The Stand, etc

It's why I prefer his earlier works. His later works are just not good IMO. Man some of his early books are phenomenal.
