Giveaway - The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - Stephen King

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King. An amazing book and the first in the series. And.....the movie starring Idris Elba (as Roland) and Matthew McConaughey (as the Man in Black)  releases August 4th! I cannot wait to see it! To refresh my memory, I'll be re-reading the movie tie-in version......and I have a copy to giveaway to one lucky reader as well!!

Okay, if you haven't read it yet, (!?),  here's a description from Simon and Schuster Canada:

"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." Read an excerpt of The Gunslinger.

For those who have read the original, take not that this 'long-awaited adaptation of Stephen’s magnum opus has been decribed as a "sequel" to the original series of books.'
