Nothing short of amazing, this story within a story within a story. I want to say more, but for the time being, what a bittersweet feeling I'm left with. Having to say good-bye yet again to my beloved Oy, Jake, and Roland. Especially Oy. I sincerely hope there will be more revisits, journeys into the Dark Tower world. And what a journey it was!

And for those wondering if they can read/ enjoy this book actually never having read The Dark Tower series. Here's your answer, in the form of a snippet scribed by The Man, The Legend himself, Stephen King, in the Foreward:

"Many of the people holding this book have followed the adventures of Roland and his band--his ka-tet-- for years, some of them from the very beginning. Others--and I hope there are many, newcomers and Constant Readers alike -- may ask, Can I read and enjoy this story if I haven't read the other Dark Towers books? My answer is yes, if you keep a few things in mind."

He then goes on to describe a few key elements and happenings. And with that basic knowledge swirling about your noggin, you're ready to embark on the journey that is The Wind Through the Keyhole.
