What’s The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook?
The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook free is set in between the fourth and fifth books in the sequence of The Dark Tower Audiobook, making it, King says, Dark Tower 4.5.

Background of The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook
In an interview in March 2009, King stated, describing an idea for a new short story he recently had: “And then I thought, ‘Well, why don’t I find three more like this and do a book that would be almost like modern fairy tales?’ Then this thing started to add on bits and pieces so I guess it will be a novel.” According to King, the idea is a new Dark Tower Audiobook. King said, regarding the series, “It’s not really done yet. Those seven books are really sections of one long über-novel.”
While promoting his novel Under the Dome, King confirmed this during his TimesTalk event at The TimesCenter in New York City on November 10, 2009, and the next day King’s official site posted the information that King will begin working on this novel in about eight months, with a tentative title being The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook.
On December 1, 2009, Stephen King posted a poll on his official website, asking visitors to vote for which book he should write next:”I mentioned two potential projects while I was on the road, one a new Mid-World book (not directly about Roland Deschain, but yes, he and his friend Cuthbert are in it, hunting a skin-man, which are what werewolves are called in that lost kingdom) and a sequel to The Shining called Doctor Sleep. Are you interested in reading either of these? If so, which one turns your dials more? [We] will be counting your votes (and of course it all means nothing if the muse doesn’t speak).
The voting ended on December 31, 2009. The following month it was revealed that Doctor Sleep received 5,861 votes, while The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook received 5,812.
Why should you listen to The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook?
Not all good stories are original. There are fragments, particles of story, which get glued together like molecular models in endlessly changing configurations. We are pleased by the sense that we have never seen this set of shapes before, while recognising its parts. Tolkien talks of Story as a vast stewpot into which the writer sticks their ladle; others talk of the sea of story, into which we place our nets.
This is a sober little book – as chastened in its way as the long books of King’s late maturity. There is joy here, joy in the process of telling, but an emphasis on the costs of survival. King is one of the great popular artists of our time, and his greatness comes, in part, from the fact that the consolation he brings us is minimally built on sentimental denial of things as they are.
King will never be the same writer he was before his period of excess, or before the hit-and-run accident that very nearly killed him. It is all about making do. Nothing will change the fact that Tim’s father is dead or that, at journey’s end, beyond storms, Roland will come to the Dark Tower.
You must listen to The Wind Through the Keyhole Audiobook, whether you are an existing Dark Tower devotee or just a fan of great books. It is superb in every way and one that everyone should enjoy.
