User reviews about the book
It was good to visit Midworld again and journey with the Ka-tet. It was like visiting old friends, the ones that you have travelled with and hurt with. Thank you Mr. King for allowing us to follow the Path of the Beam once again! Thankee Sai!!
King at his best.
What more can I say? Breezy, simple style that flows around deeper currents of meaning. It seems to me that the long short story is his "sweet spot" and this one flows.
The Wind Through the Keyhole
Having read the Dark Tower series twice, I was pleasantly surprised how this fit in! A very good read and it was fun being back with Roland and his K-Tet.
Loved it, it Was an awesome book.
Ka is indeed a wheel
I accidentally read this last instead of in between wizard and glass and wolves of calla. It was great to see the tet whole again I hope King does another one of these.
I am a late comer to the Dark Tower series. Over the last two weeks I've read all of the books in order except for this one. I wanted to read it last as it had been written, long after the conclusion of the series even though the story fits somewhere between the fourth and fifth books.
It seemed to me that King was faced with two challenges, the first, reacquainting himself and new readers with the characters he created so long ago, and, second, telling a story that could stand on its own without the remainder of the series to prop it up. Master story teller that he is both challenges were smartly met.
I am reminded that like in life, the destination is really nothing more than an excuse for the journey and the journey itself is all that really matters.
Perhaps the most beautiful, unforgettable tale from Roland's past...
The wind through the keyhole, which seems to take up well over half the pages of this whole novel, is one perhaps the most riveting, unforgettable piece of The Gunslinger's rough, sandblasted past. Gave it five stars; beautiful story within a story.

Thank you for continuing the story of Roland.

A terrific read. Classic gunslinger that blends well with the other stories in the Dark Tower series. King certainly is in great form here and sprinkles his stories within stories with a great deal of humanity.
