Today’s featured book is The Wind Through The Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel by Stephen King.
Why I chose this book:
The Dark Tower series started in 1974. Some of us are old enough to remember the first book when it came out, but if you’re not, that doesn’t matter. What’s good about this book, though, is that if you haven’t read the previous 4 (where this book would come in) or the following 3 (which would come after this book in the development of the series), you don’t really need to. This book stands on its own. It’s classic King: thrilling, stellar plotting and writing, and hard to put down.
In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King returns to the rich landscape of Mid-World, the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga that stands as his most beguiling achievement.
King began the Dark Tower series in 1974; it gained momentum in the 1980s; and he brought it to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003 and 2004. The Wind Through the Keyhole is sure to fascinate avid fans of the Dark Tower epic. But this novel also stands on its own for all readers, an enchanting and haunting journey to Roland’s world and testimony to the power of Stephen King’s storytelling magic.
