The Wind Through the Keyhole brings us back to our favorite Tet along the beam, then takes us back to Roland's younger days (not long after his visit to Mejis). Within that story is another which opens up the legends of his world.
When King reads his own books, you really get to hear the 'voices' of each character; vocal inflection shows so much more than words on a page could ever hope to. I have copies of King reading the first three books of the Dark Tower Series (The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three, and The Waste Lands). It would be wonderful if he could be talked into narrating the rest of the series.
King is always good for a chuckle.
One doesn't need to be familiar with the entire series to enjoy this book. Tower junkies will see the references to the other seven (not to mention how many other Stephen King books), but can easily stand by itself.
