Publisher's Summary

For those discovering the epic best-selling Dark Tower series for the first time—and for its legions of dedicated fans—here is an immensely satisfying stand-alone novel and perfect introduction to the series.

Beginning in 1974, gaining momentum in the 1980s and coming to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003 and 2004, the Dark Tower epic fantasy saga stands as Stephen King’s most beguiling achievement. It has been the basis for a long-running Marvel comic series.

Now, with The Wind Through the Keyhole, 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. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime. "A person's never too old for stories," he says to Bill. "Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them."

Sure to captivate the avid fans of the Dark Tower epic, this is an enchanting introduction to Roland’s world and the power of Stephen King’s storytelling magic.

    "Great Read!"

    Unlike some of the other folks in the review pool, I actually really love to hear King read his own stuff. He's my favorite to listen to now that Frank Muller is gone- though the fellow who read Duma Key, John Slattery, also was really a great narrator. This story was a wonderful trip back to the Dark Tower, and I loved the story in a story aspect of it- the tale itself had some nice little peeks into many of King's other stories, even a little "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" flavor to it. I'm loving how SK as an old fellow writes- now that I'm an old girl myself- past all the Bachman-like hammer stuff and on to whimsical, supernatural/fantasy stuff- Loved as well the first look at the "Shining" sequel. Well worth my credit! Keep them coming, Mr. King!
