    " I am not sure if I understood the characters and especially the intermingling of two different stories. I may not have done justice to the rating because I am not familiar with this series. Maybe, I will try again with previous books in the series and obtain a better understanding. Take my comments based on this one book and decide for yourself. "

    " Technically, The Wind through the Keyhole, written by Stephen King and narrated by George Guidall is NOT in the Gun Slinger series. This books it a later eddition that King calls 4.5. Start at book number one (the gunslinger) and listen or read them all. It is fantastic and well worth the time. George Guidall is a fantastic narrator of this book. After completion of the sixth book in the series the characters in the book have become well developed and at this point it is natural to have a favorite. Mine is Eddie Dean. "

    " Great bonus read for those who've missed the Dark Tower series. It's a story within a story within a story. I don't recommend it as a stand-alone or first Dark Tower book, however. "
