2.0 out of 5 stars Big let down., May 21, 2012
By 
This review is from: The Wind Through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel (Dark Tower Novels) (Hardcover)
I picked up this book at the airport and was really excited to return to the land of Mid-World with Roland and his ka-tet and was immensely dissapointed.

The dialogue between the characters at the beginning feels forced and out of place though King does eventually manage to capture some of the old magic.

I found the namesake tale within the tale, The Wind Through The Keyhole, entertaining at first but eventually wearisome and tired. The antagonist again is as usual, R.F (under one of his many guises) and though the tale is told like a true tall tale (albeit set in Midworld) there are way too many references to The Dark Tower itself; I'm not sure how Roland could have heard this story from his mother and not have it affect his quest later?

In spite of all this King is very good in his delivery and although unsatisfying I was able to get my Dark Tower fix. Two and a half stars.
