Book Review: The Wind Through the Keyhole

Post by Arianna Stonewater » Fri Aug 18, 2017 3:33 am

Title of the book: The Wind Through The Keyhole
Authors: Stephen King
Series: The Dark Tower
Genres: Fantasy/Sci-fi/Western

Short summary of the story: Roland, a Gunslinger, and his ka-tet take shelter during a storm. Roland tells them all a story of his past while they wait it out. He tells them the story of when he and his friend were sent to capture a murderous shape-shifter. In his story, he tells his friend Jamie a story about a boy's adventure to restore his mother's sight called "The Wind Through the Keyhole."

Good points: This came out 8 years after the 7th book, so it was cool to revisit the gang! It takes place between books 4 and 5. There is story-inception! We get a little more insight into Roland's past, as well as hear a story from his childhood! It's more of the Roland adventures we loved from the first seven books, with lots of exciting shooting and clever tricks!

Bad points: Since it came out 15 years later than the book it comes after, it takes a bit to remember where you are in the story. The story-in-the-story means you get less info from his background, and this story doesn't really add anything new/important to the original 7 books.
