Review by Bridgey
The Wind Through the Keyhole - Stephen King *****It has been a few years since I read the Dark Tower series and wasn't really sure about how the this book would fit into it all.I have to say though that from the first page I was back with Roland and his Ka-tet journeying closer to the tower. Just like putting on a comfy pair of slippers I sat down, relaxed, and finished the book in 2 sittings.The book consists of three stories. There are many reviews on here that will spell out the plot(s), so I won't go into them. I will just say that I was very happy to once again meet the enigmatic Martyn Broadcloak aka Man in Black,As usual with Stephen King his descriptive writing drags the reader into the world that he has created and makes the end of the novel a sad occasion. I really hope this isn't the end of the Dark Tower series, I am sure Roland has many more tales to tell us.
