    1. The headline here is that I almost never read a book in 3 days - but I did this one and I was up past my bedtime turning pages.Stephen King has written this series across the whole span of his adult life & both the character and quality of the series change across the decades (and also between front and back cover). For me Dark Tower as a whole is often spectacular, sometimes a bit weak, but mostly very good. The Wind Through The Keyhole (TWTTK) is set just after my favourite of the series ' [...]


    2. Shenanigans! I cry shenanigans on Stephen King!King put me through years of mental torture with The Dark Tower series, but I was able to forgive once he finally delivered a fitting ending to that saga. So I had a lot of concerns about him returning to the story of Roland. I worried that King had come down with a vicious case of Lucasitis that was going to have him tinkering with this story repeatedly. However, King’s public statements indicated that it would not change the core Dark Tower stor [...]


    3. Prologue: No one said that the path to the beam, on the way to the Dark Tower was going to be this hard I was promised rainbows and unicorns, from my fearless leader- Stepheny. She CAN be kind of a liaaaaaaaaaar- and she is sort of insaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaane- so I should have known this wasn't going to be easy.but sweet 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus- I had nooooooo forewarning that one of my beloved Ka-tet was going to fight tooth and nail.t to read 4.5. Getting everyone on board for this one especially [...]


    4. While taking shelter from a storm along the Path of the Beam, Roland tells his ka-tet a story from his youth, about going up against a skin-man with Jamie DeCurry, in which he tells a frightened youth yet another story to bolster his courageFirst off, it pains me to give a Dark Tower book less than four stars but I thought this one was on par with Wizard and Glass.The Wind Through the Keyhole is really three tales nested within one another. One features our beloved ka-tet, somewhere between the [...]


    5. Welcome to flashback town, population - Wizard and Glass and The Wind Through the Keyhole. (It's a terrible ride btw, unless you enjoy your head getting bashed over and over again.)Wizard and Glass may have the record for length of flashback, but Wind Through the Keyhole goes Inception* on that flashback with a flashback** within a flashback. *It's still accepted to reference Inception right?**Okay, really it's a story within a flashback, but the story is a flashback to an even younger Roland te [...]


    6. Rolandand his sidekicks (called ka-tet) were minding their own business and kept going towards the Dark Tower when suddenly they had to interrupt their journey in a hurry, find some shelter and stay put for several days. Roland tells a story from his younger days to kill time (Skin Man). In that story he in turn had to kill some time and recounted another - this time fictional - story named The Wind Through the Keyhole. Confused yet? I hope the following picture helps.So there is a story inside [...]


    7. This is the chilling prequel to my review of Wizard and Glass.Inside the adobe the temperature dropped noticeably. If it weren’t for the fire in the hearth the ka-tet would have been shivering uncontrollably.Outside the winds from the starkblast reverberated off the dwelling like the screams of a banshee in heat. The crack of exploding trees sounded like water balloons bursting against concrete.The tall blonde turned to the strapping man, a Cheshire smile painted on her face, “You know, I ha [...]


    8. ★★★★☆½“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Whoops! Wrong quote there, but it seems somewhat appropriate for such a polarizing little book. I’m truly shocked at how varied the ratings are on this one, even amongst friends whose opinions I trust. I typically avoid all the .5 stories, since they’re usually just pointless filler, and seeing some of those one star ratings out there was not especially encour [...]


    9. The writing was stellar in this book, telling a story within a story has to be pretty difficult. While the story was entertaining, I'm having trouble seeing why it was necessary. I'm reading the DT series through for the first time and thought I would respect the order where this book fell, and feel like I could have done without this pitstop that takes away from the main journey. That being said, I look forward to starting Wolves of the Calla to get back on track!


    10. The Wind Through the Keyhole so named after the book that Roland's mother used to read him as a child. Considered 4.5 in the dark Tower series, it is the closest of all to a stand alone novel.Not written as tightly as the rest of the series, in some aspects, it is a mere afterthought to fill a void between chapters 4 and 5. Nearly the whole book is the story of Tim, another youngster from years gone by and his treacherous journey, not unlike Roland's story of his own teenage travels in the previ [...]


    11. OK This book has nowhere near come out. SO HOW IN THE HELL CAN PEOPLE RATE IT ALREADY? I'm giving it five stars just to counteract the negativity.


    12. *My shiny new updated review for my re-read*As I look back on our long and treacherous journey I am not shocked to see that there have been some casualties. I wish I could say I was, but the Quest for the Dark Tower has claimed many of lives. Aye, so it has. We lost one to demon sex, one to Japanese comics, one who ran so far ahead of us without looking back and one just kind of backed slowly away… ( I get that last one a lot…I can’t imagine why!) But as we have lost some, we have also gai [...]


    13. Sigh. Well, it's finished. I will now try and express some of my deep disappointments here even though it will hurt me to do so. Kemper's review captures much of what frustrated me and left me feeling cheated by the whole affair. To be promised another Dark Tower installment and offered this underwhelming book in its place, so loosely tethered to the source material as to feel as if someone else wrote it, a comical pastiche in parts that tries too hard to be Dark Tower worthy -- well, it just le [...]


    14. I think this is honestly my least favourite book out of the Dark Tower series. Now that doesn't mean that I didn't love it, I just didn't love it quite as much as the rest of the series. I find in some places that it gets a bit long and my mind constantly wandered and wondered what would happen in the next book rather than focusing on this book and what it had to offer. I feel like I'm making it sound like a terrible book and that's definitely not the case, I mean I did give it five stars! I jus [...]


    15. It was good to be back in Midworld, if only for a short visit. This book is three stories in one, and those looking for an expansion of the quest for the Tower will be disappointed. Only the frame story contains Roland and his ka-tet from our world. Roland tells Jake, Eddie, and Susannah a tale from his days as a young gunslinger, but even that story is just another frame for the true story: The Wind Through the Keyhole, a fairytale Roland's mother told him when he was a young boy. The fairytale [...]


    16. .Uummmmm. What do I say? For as long as I've been on GR, I've seen the debate on the Dark Tower. Which story era is more enjoyable? The "present day (sorta)" ka-tet of Roland, Susannah, Eddie, Jake, and Oy. Or the "Young Roland" era when he ran with Alain, Cuthbert, and Jamie?So as I'm about to start this book, I find out that many of the "present day" crews are disappointed because we get a little time with the ka-tet, only to have the story shift back in time with Roland telling another story [...]


    17. As a bridge between Wizard and Glass & Wolves of the Calla, this book couldn't be more perfect. It draws on the dark, down-to-earth nostalgia of growing up in a harsh, mean world that Wizard did beautifully, but it also introduces the bat-shit crazy, heady material of alternate dimensions and dense mythos that Wolves began introducing in its later pages. So it may not move the overall plot forward, but it's not supposed to. That plot already ended eight years ago. This is a bridge book. A bo [...]


    18. 3.5 Stars Believe it or not, there was a time when I hadn't read the Dark Tower series but we don't talk about that. It's a painful time in my history, and polite company lets me keep my shame to myself. But I mention it because since stepping foot into the Tower multiverse, everything changed. I thought I was a Stephen King fan until I read the Dark Tower series, but I had no idea how much I could love King and his books. I adore this series. No other series or book can claim a higher spot in m [...]


    19. DTProject2017 | Book 4.5Many people didn't like this book mainly for two reasons:1] It resembles the previous book (4) which is mainly a flashback in Roland's youth and many people hated that book because it was mainly a flashback, so they hated this book as well.2] The main story of the book is actually a fairy tale and doesn't add any progress to the core narrative, which is something I don't mind since I'm more interested in Roland's past than his quest to the Dark Tower.This book reminds me [...]


    20. A wonderful entry into the Dark Tower series that King supposedly completed in 2004. Think of this as DT 4.5, after Glass and before Wolves. We don't spend much time with the Ka-tet, as Roland tells them a story of his past while they take shelter from a storm (a "starkblast"--great imagery behind that name). As Roland tells the tale of hunting a shifter in a small town, King then takes it further and tells a story WITHIN the story, that of a boy who must attempt to save his mother's life. It's [...]



    21. I have read a few negative reviews of this book that make excellent points about why this is a disappointing addition to the Dark Tower canon. I can't really disagree with them. And yet I enjoyed this story. The difference, I think, lies more with my expectations than the execution.My favorite part of the Dark Tower is the world King slowly assembled over the course of the series, and the way he eventually tied it in to a dozen or so of his other novels, creating a vast meta-fictional landscape. [...]


    22. The Wind Through the Keyhole was a very enjoyable listen, and Stephen King read it to me. He's not as good as his usual narrator, but he's still a pretty damn good storyteller (in the reading aloud sense, as well as the writing sense). With this 4.5 installment of The Dark Tower, King weaves a story inside a story inside a story, with each one drawing me in. This was a solid 5 star read almost all the way through. Working inwards out, the fable of Tim Stoutheart is near perfect (view spoiler)[ w [...]


    23. Adding this with some trepidation and suspicion, as the last two books in this series were so bad. This appears to be a prequel and could be better. But if Stephen King appears as a character in it, all bets are off.Updating this on 4/29/12: I read this today. So much better than the last two Dark Tower books. This one takes place in the middle of things, between books 4 and 5. It is a novella within a story within yet another story. It was a fine quick read, and nice to spend another spell with [...]


    24. This book can be read as a standalong as this book has nothing to do with the main story of the Dark Tower series, but more of a black story as Wizard and Glass and The Dark Tower Graphic Novels are as a black story. This right after Wizard and Glass as Roland and Company hides from a coming story as Roland tells a story about his past where he brings his mother, and how he hunts down a Magican known as the Skin-Man, who can change into different forms of animals at night, killing people. While [...]


    25. A quick, entertaining read. It was nice to visit Roland again.2nd time reading - Sept 4, 2017I first read this 5 years ago when it was first published. I had given it 3 stars back then but am giving it 4 stars this time. I think I enjoyed it more this second time around as the series is fresh in my mind. It was clever to have a story within a story within a story and all were very interesting and compelling.


    26. Imala sam malu nedoumicu oko toga da li da "Vetar kroz ključaonicu" ostavim za kasnije i da odmah pređem na sledeći nastavak "Vukovi Kale", ali sam prihvatila da je knjiga označena kao #4.5 od strane samog autora, te da ću je svakako pročitati pre ili kasnije.Većina verovatno zna da je King "Vetar kroz ključaonicu" napisao nakon što je završio serijal i u pogovoru on se osvrće na čitaoce koji se do sada nisu susretali sa serijalom, a koji možda žele da pročitaju neki deo. Ako se z [...]


    27. I listened to the audio version of The Wind through the Keyhole, narrated by the author himself, which I think made it that little bit more special because Stephen King has one of those voices in more ways than one, that demands your attention as if you’re listening to a master story-teller. Which you definitely are.The Wind through the Keyhole is a nail-biting story about the trials and tribulations of a young boy named Tim Ross, told to Roland by his mother as a young boy. Roland & his K [...]


    28. This is a re-read for me, or to be accurate, a re-listen since I audio-ed this time. Originally I read it after the final Dark Tower installment because that’s when it was published. I don’t remember when I first re-read it, but probably on it’s own. This time I read it, technically, out of order as well. I absolutely understand why it belongs after Wizard and Glass and for anyone reading the first time (now that they are all available) I would encourage that order. For those of experienci [...]


    29. As The Dark Tower 4.5, this book sits right at the point in the series where, for me, it all went downhill. Too much time passed between books back then and the characters stopped being who they were and started being who Stephen King was telling me they were. From Wolves of the Calla on, I could never shake the picture in my head of King sitting behind the words, plinking on about commalas and positronics and swapping consonants needlessly for apostrophes. When he (view spoiler)[wrote himself i [...]
