A story within a story within a story. The innermost was the best, the outermost was just filler to make it be part of the Dark Tower series. ( )

I was skeptical about returning to King's magical, irradiated Wild West universe, but The Wind Through The Keyhole was a nicely constructed little tale (helllooooo frame stories!) that didn't overstay its welcome. King's Mid-World patois (the closest a layman can get to Tolkien's elaborate language construction, I suppose) can be a bit hit-or-miss, and the second frame story (Roland's tale of hunting a shapeshifter in a small town) is a bit of an open-and-shut case, but fans of the other Dark Tower books will find this an enjoyable detour.

Enjoyed this filler book. Kinda falls between books 4 & 5 in the Dark Tower series with Roland and his ka-tet holed up during a storm. I love the story within a story within a story approach used here to relate a tale from Roland's early days as a Gunslinger. ( )

it was amazing!

Now first of all i will admit that i’m biased, i love stephen king and i LOVE the dark tower series so i have been looking forward to it since it was announced and i quite happily shelled out the ridiculous sum of $13 for the ebook.

Reader Beware…here be spoilers

The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King is, in his words, “book 4.5” of the Dark Tower series. And it is a story, within a story, within a story. Roland and his Ka-Tet have just faced the wizard in the glass palace and are making their way along the Beam towards the Dark Tower. Along the way Oy the Billy Bumbler starts acting strange, snout scenting the air and prancing around, turns out that there’s a starkblast heading their way. A starkblast is a pretty wicked storm that starts with unseasonably warm weather and then the wind rises to tornado like speeds and the temperature plummets to negative 40 in a matter of minutes. So Roland and the Ka-Tet manage to find a warm safe place and hole up until the starkblast passes. While they’re waiting Roland tells them a story of his childhood, of when he and a fellow teen-aged gunslinger, Jamie, get sent to the little town of Debaria to root out a skin-changer. The skin-changer has been mauling, killing and eating the townspeople and they’re none to happy about it. There is one survivor of an attack though who can actually ID the skin-changer in his human form. Young Billy Streeter. Roland takes him under his wing, gets all the facts out of him, and while they’re waiting for Jamie to get back with the suspects he tells Billy a story.

The Story is that of young Tim Stoutheart and his journey to cure his mother. IF it weren’t for it’s personality and excellent dialogue, this fairy tale could have come straight from the lips of the Grimm brothers. It was amazing! The things Tim sees and goes through all to save his mother’s sight are deeds of a true hero, but a hero that doesn’t really know he’s a hero. Also in this story we learn that the guardian of the Beam of the Lion is named Aslan…how perfect is that?

Any way Tim’s story is perfect and just what young Billy needed to hear in order to help ID the Skin-changer. Here is where i’m going to stop spoiling this story…you should go read this yourself.

So while i loved this book i did have some issues

The ebook version that i got from Barnes and Noble was all funky, the font and font sized kept changing for no good reason and it was distracting

The scenes with older Roland talking to Jake, Eddie, Susannah and Oy was a little on the awkward side, not quiet Roland-y (Dark Tower fans should understand what i mean, i hope lol) but as the story goes on he starts to sound a little more like his old self
it was too short (ironic cause lately King’s books have been too long lol)

I really loved hearing stories from Roland’s past, mainly because they were only hinted at in the other books unless they were crucial to the plot line like in Wizard and Glass. Now all King needs to do is write the story of the Battle on the hill of Jericho that’s always mentioned. Actually he just needs to write a whole new series…. Episodes 1-3 of Rolands life, everything that happened before “The man in black fled across the desert and the Gunslinger followed.”

So if you’re a King fan, and like me have been slightly disappointed in his books lately go and pick this one up. It’ll make you happy.

Happy Reading!
