The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A continued return to form (along with 11.22.63 and Duma Key) from the recently lacklustre King, and a substantially better Dark Tower novel than the series (which took a drastic nosedive in quality between books four and five) has seen for many years.
I would have preferred to have spent more time with Roland and his Ka-Tet - the principal characters of most of the series - but I was drawn into each successive story-within-a-story to the point where I was surprised and wistful as they came to an end and I was returned to the enclosing narrative. The mark of a master storyteller, and King is on fine form here.
