Sounds like a children’s story book reader, awful narration, didn’t get past 15 minutes returned the book

The first 4 books were great, this book started out that way but lost it’s way about halfway in. By 3/4 of the way through I was considering returning it.

Becomes a weird and unfunny history book, of sorts.

The narrator does a great job.

From hero to zero

Never read a book that started out so promising that turned to complete nonsense in a few chapters. Once Bob leaves the earth, the story dies, so boring.

This book is garbage, don’t bother. Richard Ayoade was funny in the IT Crowd but in this his voice is monotonous and boring.

What a ripoff - King cashing in on the series

What would have made The Wind Through the Keyhole better?

The book starts with the story of the Gunslinger, Eddie, Susana, Jake and Oy. It then goes into a story told by Roland, from his teens, Then within the story, younger Roland tells another story, which consumes a heap of the book.

This is a shameless cash grab by King on the name of the gunslinger series and I am retuning it in disgust

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen King again?

not sure after this

How did the narrator detract from the book?

AWFUL, the cheapskate narrated it himself and did a terrible job

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

very disappointed

Any additional comments?

I hope King reads this review

This is very entertaining but the endless cigarette advertising really spoils it.

It’s a shame they didn’t clip them off. They add no value to the story

The story was a bit boring. It it were not for Oliver Wyman I probably would not have finished it.

Not rotten, but it was hard work to finish the book.
