Loved this! To be honest without full narration it was occasionally hard to know who was talking and what was happening but a quick rewind helped. The characters draw you in emotionally, the atmospheric music and effects are fantastic and the story really makes up for any confusion.

Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

I loved this book, interesting set up, suspenseful story, with plot twists but the two main characters and their relationship dynamics really take center stage. You're taken on a fantastic ride of finding out what the hell is going on. Nick and Amy are so well written, authentic and relatable and the narrator's are excellent.

Loved the flash back of Roland's first love, at first I didn't want to leave the present and the main characters of the series, but then I didn't want to leave Hambry and come back. Frank Muller gets 5 stars for narration!

Stephen King's epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, is being made into a major movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Due in cinemas February 17, 2017 USA. For listeners new to The Dark Tower, 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.

A side story of the Dark Tower world, a bit like an old fairy tale. I loved all the other DT novels, this was not as good and too be honest I really disliked Stephen Kings narration, nowhere near the amazing narration of Frank Muller and George Guidall on the original series.
