The Wind Through The Keyhole is the newest novel by Stephen King taking place somehere between book four and five of the The Dark Tower series. It is surprisingly very good considering the lastest efforts that have come from King. The narrative is crisp and the story itself is one of introspective realization that comes in the form of a tale told within a tale told within a tale as the characters sit out a storm one night in an abandoned building.
You don't have to have read any of the Dark Tower series to enjoy this book but to help out King offers a quick synopsis in the beginning so that any questions would be answered. There is the tale to begin with of the main troop of characters escaping a fast moving storm that is likely to freeze you to the spot as a lava flow is likely to burn you alive. Only moving much faster.
As they wait out the storm the gunslinger Roland tells them a tale of when as a youth he and his partner went into the town of Dabaria to hunt a skin shifter. A murderous creature that can change from man to any manner of animal and whose bloodlust holds not bounds. During the a long night in jail the young Roland tells the tale of Tim Stoutheart and the Covenant Man. A timeless tale told of a young boy coming of age in a time where violence and lust destroys all that was pure in his life.
After that tale is told comes the conclusion of the tale of young Roland and the skin shifter and its bloody conclusion. From there comes the end to the storm and the older Roland coming to terms with his own soul.
Fine stories all told before your grandfather's grandfather was born, Once upon a bye...

I am sure the story is great. I am a huge fan of SK but it's disappointing that the formatting is bad on this ebook. The fonts are not changeable with the nook software. They are too light and there are spots where it changes back and forth between the publisher's default and my selected one. And yes an made sure that the box was unchecked for using Publisher's default. I hope they will fix this and provide a better copy for us to downlod since I was looking forward to this book very much.

    TERRIBLE FORMATTING! SCRIBNER needs to fire their quality control team. Good book but the publishers should be ashamed. This is the only really lousy formatted book I've ever seen for the Nook. The font and font sizes jump unpredictably. There's no middle-sized font between too large and too small for me.
    MInus two stars for a poorly manufactured book.

    Eh...

    Good little short story but certainly not worth $12.99.

    Does not pickup where book 7 ended.

    All in all not bad, this fits somewhere between book 4 and 5. could have been editing room floor cuttings from either. but still a good story.

    Unreadable due to formatting

    The formatting on this ebook is ridiculous as many have said? The font is a weird wavy thing that is just hard to look at, let alone read. I have also found this font to be unchangable for some reason as well. Guess I'll have to pick this one up on iBooks
