    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."
    "Entertaining, not enthralling"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like King you'll enjoy this, especially if you are a Dark Tower fan.


    If you???ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

    Middle of the path of the beam ("road").


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I'm with the rest of the reviews, although not as bad. I thought King did an average job of narration. I don't know why "a professional" did not do it, bit I was a little disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    The book takes place in Mid-world, but it's hardly a deep story travelling with the Ka-tet we are all friends with. The book truly does stand on it's own, which is good, but I didn't lose myself in the story as I did with the other books in the series. I think because it's an introduction to all these new characters that I don't have a history with.

    There's about 40 minutes of "advertisements" (previews of other books) at the end of the book. I hate that. It wouldn't have changed my buying of the book, but that's not mentioned anywhere in the description. If they are going to do it, make it another file I can chose not to download,
