    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.

    Story

    Plain and simple to get a DT novel again is great. Recently I listened to all the DT books and must say how disappointing it was going from Frank Muller to George Guirdell. Now since Mr.Muller had an accident and could no longer perform it made the whole thing even sadder yet understandable. However going from George to Stephen shows just how good George actually is which just goes to show Frank was,a Master storyteller. To Kings credit I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Bag of Bones narrated by him, but BoB delt with thoughts and dialogue mainlyof just 1 character, that King portrays quite well. However when he attempts a child, black women, new yorker, and gunslinger it really just becomes him reading a book. With the talent Frank Muller had now gone (Rip) I would have really loved to hear Raul Esparza who did magnificent with under the dome and I think might be right up there with F.M. Even George reprising his role would have been nice. Not sure why King read himself but I think there,are,a,few stories that King can do a good job with and this is not it. Atleast now when listening to all 8 books in order instead of loving the first four and being disappointed listening to the last 3 there will now be 4.5 in between which will totally kill the performance so once you get to 5 it will actually be more pleasant. Great story though without a doubt!
