The Wind through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel by Stephen King
The Wind through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel

Dana McMillen, January 1, 2013

Stephen King returns to the world of the gunslinger Roland and his 'ka-tet' and gives his readers another spellbinding 'story with-in a story' with this newest volume in the Dark Tower series. This novel can be read on it's own, for those who haven't read any of the Dark Tower books, but if you want to fully enjoy the story it's best to have read at least the first four books. This tale takes place in between book 4 and book 5. It's a real treat to re-visit with Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy. The book begins with Roland telling the others a tale, which then turns into him relating another tale within the first one. You'll not find any of the main characters acting in strange or different ways, but you will find lots of new and interesting characters and places told within the two tales. Stephen King has the ability to spin a yarn and by doing so keeps you totally immersed in what he has created. He creates very believable characters and places them in strange and wonderous situations and lets the story take over, he never tries to 'manage' or control what happens to them, they are sharing with him, and he with us, what is happening in the story. The only bad thing is when the tale is told and we have to close the book. If you are a Dark Tower fan, you should not pass up this beautiful story!
