    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."
    "AMAZING Storytelling at its BEST!"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Wind Through the Keyhole?

    The central story, about Tim Stoutheart and his adventures and bravery. The magic and beauty are everything every fairytale should ever be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In the Dark Tower series my favorite character is Oy because of his undying love and loyalty. In this particular story, though, it was the Tyger - and I'll say no more so as not to reveal anything I shouldn't!


    Which character – as performed by Stephen King – was your favorite?

    It is true that Stephen King is not the best of narrators simply because he is a writer and not an actor, but I do think he does a much better job than many reviews have given him credit for. I like how he reads young characters, so in this book I'd have to say Bill Streeter - the boy in the intermediary of the 3 stories. Also, it was very interesting to hear his (SK's) take on Randall Flagg! Scary!


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

    This is the first time I read anything for the first time about Jake, Susannah, Eddie, Roland, and Oy while already knowing how it "all turns out" so each thing they said was very poignant. I can't say more without revealing what happens in the greater Dark Tower saga, but let's just say their interactions took on a greater meaning for knowing what was to come.


    Any additional comments?

    Give Steve a break! He has a strong accent from Maine (probably cuz that's where he is FROM) and the fact is he reads his stories very well. Those who say he is entirely monotone - are you really listening? He's absolutely not! And I appreciate his not attempting to do accents he can't do more than the narrator of Under the Dome who just mangles all the accents. I like listening to him narrate his own books and hope he does more. (besides I can still hear Eddie in Frank Muller's awesome Brooklyn accent no matter who reads him and how, so what else do I need?)
