    Description

    THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER.

    For readers 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. 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 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 Magic Tales of the 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.

    A decent stand alone book

    I bought the entire dark tower series to read it again. As a part of it I bought this book. The book is written mostly as story tale. Events in this book occur before just before Wolves of Calla. Very simplistically written. I felt as I was reading a children's fairy tale. Does not really much to the main story line. But gives a lot of new details about Roland's Mid-World. That itself was worth reading the book for. Content wise its not very much. Just about 200-300 pages.
    I loved the book al...

    Feels like an afterthought

    This seems to be the writer (king's) attempt to make some more money off of his Dark Tower novels. The story seems to be forced and not up to the mark. Although if you're reading this by itself its nice enough but somehow it fails to evoke the same feelings as the other novels.

    Read this if you must but don't expect much
