In his New York Times bestselling The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King returns to the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga to tell a story about gunslinger Roland Deschain in his early days—The Dark Tower is soon to be a major motion picture from Dreamworks starring Idris Elba as Roland and Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black.The Wind Through the Keyhole is a sparkling contribution to the series that can be placed between Dark Tower IV and Dark Tower V. This Russian doll of a novel, a story within a story within a story, visits Roland and his ka-tet as a ferocious, frigid storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. Roland tells a tale from his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, “The Wind through the Keyhole.” “A person’s never too old for stories,” he says to Bill. “Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.” And stories like The Wind Through the Keyhole live for us with Stephen King’s fantastical magic that “creates the kind of fully imagined fictional landscapes a reader can inhabit for days at a stretch” (The Washington Post).

Rolandand his sidekicks (called ka-tet) were minding their own business and kept going towards the Dark Tower when suddenly they had to interrupt their journey in a hurry, find some shelter and stay put for several days. Roland tells a story from his younger days to kill time (Skin Man). In that sto...

5.0 The Wind through the Keyhole
If you’re expecting another Dark Tower book, you’ll be disappointed with this one, but if you’re a fan of the Dark Tower universe, then this is a must-read. You’ll probably like The Wind through the Keyhole if you enjoyed book #4 (Wizard and Glass) because they’re very similar. Book #4 is my favorit...

4.0 The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
I listened to the audio version of The Wind through the Keyhole, narrated by the author himself, which I think made it that little bit more special because Stephen King has one of those voices in more ways than one, that demands your attention as if you’re listening to a master story-teller. Which y...

4.0 The Wind Through the Keyhole
As a longtime Stephen King fan I was hesitant to read anymore about the Dark Tower series. The last novel in the series broke me (I will not get into here since I am sure many of you have read all of the books) so when I saw that a new novel was out that took place in between Wizard and the Glass an...
