Well that’s what they have been forced and cohered into, a doctrine of Sacred Meat and nothing else to survive on but is that really all there is to their existence? One sole provider of special Meat, one force of power, one leader. No! There are a few believers that can think out of the box and believe there is more behind the stage set, more to life and want to free the captive souls from bondage of the Meat Processing Plant. A man and his family are at risk in this Dark Macabre battle of Evil. A Revolt is ensuing in its most biblical forms. The Meat is sourced from Bulls and Dairy Herd and The Chosen who are they? No doubt you will soon discover in the most original style of story I have read in a while! There is a gross warning in here you may never look at meat in the same way again! Joseph D’ Lacy has really crafted a Dark Horrific tale here of dystopian status and has really done well coming from a small publishing house Bloodybooks he has really captured readers across the Atlantic. When Stephen King states on the front cover ‘Joseph D’Lacy Rocks’ it’s a home run for sure! Be aware there are some extreme scenes of violence and sex.
"And so it went. Their trusting acceptance of their situation and their deep commitment to each other's emotional safety in all matters. They used their language to touch each other because their hands and arms could not. We are with you. Here we are. They said that so often. None of it escaped him. He lived in the world of the Chosen veal calves while the stockmen around him lived in the world of the plant, their workaday jobs, their top wages and their families. Vile. Every last one of the meat-eating townsfolk was ignorant, vicious filth. They were the ones who should be slaughtered at two hundred an hour, if only that were possible."
The Gunslinger "The Interloper, The Lord of Flies, The Man in Black cometh!"
Stephen King our modern day Charles Dickens takes you on beginning of an epic journey with Roland 'The Gunslinger' in this poignant tale. The story takes us through the past and future and the coming of age of a man and a boy in search of The Tower. 'The more you eat the more you toot!' or should I say the more you re-read it the more you will appreciate it, that's what I felt second time round reading the novel and also third time via audiobook. I felt I picked up more clues to the whole Dark Tower experience.
One person from the past and one from the future pitted together against the man in black in searcheth of The Tower. A Hawk pays no coinage to love or morals is The Gunslinger a Hawk? Is The Man in Black a priest? Verily as The Gunslinger walketh in the shadow of The Man in Black he feareth no Man!
Movie and Mini-series news..
Akiva Goldsman is going to be writing the screenplay for the mini-series of The Dark Tower and the movie also. He is also going to produce the movie, that looks good as he is a consulting producer for Fringe TV series, which is really good. Akiva has written screenplays for many good books I am legend, Da vinci code, I robot, a beautiful mind, angels and demons, a time to kill, the client and batman and robin. This looks promising.
Director is going to be Ron Howard who has directed many good movies he directed the two Dan Brown adaptations and A beautiful mind. Stephen King is also going to co-produce.
At the moment they have Javer Bardem from No country for old men to play Roland.

The Gunslinger Roland enters new dimensions, new doors three to be exact in search of The Three individuals which he his fated to be with. The story is mix of many settings starting in The western seafront with The Gunslinger and dangerous Lobstrosities and then to 1980's a heroin addict and mobsters in P.O.V mode for The first of The Three 'The Prisoner'. Roland The Gunslinger also pays a visit to the other 2 candidates The Lady Of The Shadows and The Pusher which sweep you back to 1960's and 1980's. The story is really written well with humorous undertones and has a healthy dose of sociopathic and schizophrenic characters. There's a bit of Love in the air too! "Even the damned love" The Gunslinger talks a lot about Ka, Ka "signifies life-force, consciousness, duty and destiny. In the Vulgate, or low speech, it also means a place to which an individual must go".
You really get to like these characters King has developed and get to laugh along with the Gunslinger as he immerses himself in different worlds, makes me reminisce of the Crocodile Dundee movie where the guy had never been to a city in the U.S before. "The yellow cars were public conveyances called tac-sees or cabs or hax. The tribes which drove them, the mortcypedia told him where two, Spicks and Mockies. To make one stop,you held your hand up like a pupil in a classroom." LoL Mahfah! Mahfah! Good stuff!
