The Wind Through the Keyhole [Dark Tower 4.5]

Author: Stephen King


Premise:
Roland and his ka-tet (Susannah, Jake, Eddie, and the billybumbler) seek shelter from a stakblast, a freak ice storm. While shacked up he tells a story of his youth when called upon a small village to investigate a shapeshifter. While there, the young Roland tells the story of "The Wind Through the Keyhole" about a young boy he travels through a dark and magical forest to find the wizard Mearlyn.

My Take:
The Dark Tower is my favorite series of novels, so it was a pleasure to pick a new tale. While most of the story within a story within a story has nothing to do with the ka-tet on their current journey, it does reveal more about a young Roland. And the story which the book is titled is an great little tale. A fan of the series should not hesitate to pick up this book.

Rating: So Good
