Publisher's Summary

For listeners new to the Dark Tower saga, The Wind Through the Keyhole is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. It is a story within a story, which features both the younger and older gunslinger Roland on his quest to find the Dark Tower. Fans of the existing seven books in the series will also delight in discovering what happened to Roland and his ka-tet between the time they leave the Emerald City and arrive at the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis.

This 'Russian doll' of a novel, a story within a story within a story, visits Mid-World's last gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. (The events of the novel can be placed between Dark Tower IV and Dark Tower V.)

Roland tells a tale from his early days as a gunslinger, in 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: 'The Wind through the Keyhole.' 'A person's never too old for stories,' he says to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.' And stories like these, they live for us.

Includes an exclusive audio extract of King's forthcoming novel Doctor Sleep.

    "a good insite"

    A good book and nice for the dark tower series to keep running. The book isn't so much about Roland, Eddie, suse, and Jake. But gives you a bit of an insite in to the rolands world

    "Needs a professional narrator"

    Nothing wrong with the tale - as good as the rest of the Dark Tower but it is disappointing that a professional narrator (ideally George Guidall) was not used. Stephen is too monotone, however he isn't a complete disaster.

    "unsure about authors narration."

    Not keen on Stephen Kong's narration. Although he may give some insight into the characters tone, he is not a professional actor/reader so can sound a bit monotonous and mumbly! Will keep listening, he may get better.

    "Great story, dreadful narration"

    Another intriguing journey to Midworld. Loved the story but next time Steve - leave the narration to a professional. The reading was flat and droning with no emotion at all. If this audio is re-released with George Guidall narrating I will buy again.
