Down the rabbit hole again. This eighth novel in the Dark Tower series is set between "Wizard and Glass" (4th in the series) and "Wolves of the Calla" (5th). I originally resisted reading the entire series, simply because the story didn't appeal to me; of course, Stephen King comes through as always, an ace story teller who draws the reader in and keeps him there. Roland and his Ka-tet are taking shelter from a violent killer storm (a "starkblast"), and to pass the time, Roland tells a story from his days as a young gunslinger from Gilead; in the midst of that, he passes along a fairy tale--The Wind Through The Keyhole--that was told to a very young Roland Deschain. Excellent addition to the series, adding some color to the characters and more details bout Mid-world. Now I'll more than likely go back and begin reading the entire series again. Why does Stephen King have to be so bloody good?
