    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."

    What made the experience of listening to The Wind Through the Keyhole the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed having Stephen read this one...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wind Through the Keyhole?

    Just getting back into the gunslingers world (my adult version of a blanket)


    What about Stephen King’s performance did you like?

    My fist audio book was the Drawing of the Three. I shoplifted the audio book in high school...that's how bad I wanted it and that audio book is why I continue to listen today (FYI-that item was the only thing I ever stole in my life). Anyway, you can see that I was hooked on the series after The Gunslinger. Stephen read that first audio version of Drawing of the three and that's the main reason I was glad to have him reading this one too.

    That being said, the previous readers of the series are technically much better than Stephen. Actually, Frank Muller and George Guidall are two of my favorites. But, I always wondered how Stephen would have read the rest of the series. When a non-author reads a book, you (at least I do) sometimes wonder if the reader is interpreting inflection, tone, etc. how the author heard it in his/her mind as it was written.

    If you've heard Stephen read in the past, you probably going to be ok with, or even love this reading. If not, you may be put off by the narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    More please.
