    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Amazon Customer says: "An exceptional story, but I miss George Guidall."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wind Through the Keyhole to be better than the print version?

    Can not make the comparison since I only listen, due to job constraints. The audio version is of excellent quality and Stephen has done an excellent job narrating. I was a little worried when I found out that George Guidall would not narrate. George is the Gunslinger in my book! I can't even listen to Don Quixote without seeing Roland Deschain of Gilead. However, Stephen pulls it off, he's gotten very good at doing multiple characters and that is George Guidall's secret to success.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Why, Tim of course. How could you not be rooting for the kid? Facing the unknown, thinking only of his Mom. And the whole time, having to watch out for RF!


    What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Life's blood of the author! Stephen spent most of his life on these characters. His heart and soul belong to these pages. And these pages, belong to the ages ;-).


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not to spoil the ending, but the ending. We find out that Roland forgives and has been forgiven.It's good to know that an old friend is well in that regard.


    Any additional comments?

    Kudo's to you Stephen, I hope you read more of your own work in the future.Thankee Sai!
