Book 0.5, The Dark Tower - A Dark Tower Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
For readers new to The Dark Tower, The Wind Through the Keyhole is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. The Dark Tower is soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, due in cinemas August 18, 2017.
The No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller The Wind through the Keyhole is a perfect bridge between the fourth and fifth novels in Stephen King's epic masterpiece. A story within a story which features both the younger and older gunslinger, it is also a wonderful introduction to The Dark Tower series.
As Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet leave the Emerald city, a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. While they shelter from the starkblast, Roland tells a story about his younger days, when he was sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-changer.
At the scene of the crime he had tried to comfort a terrified young boy called Bill Streeter by reciting a story from The Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind through the Keyhole'.
'A person's never too old for stories,' he said to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.'
And stories like these, they live for us.

F**k you Apple for not enforcing consistent pricing (that goes for iTunes music too)
F**k you Hachette / Hodder and Stoughton for being greedy and taking advantage of Apples region locked(!) digital book store
I second that - overpriced
Why is the printed bound book the same price, or less, then the e- version?! It makes NO SENSE! No one had to print, bind, package, ship, unwrap, shelve and serve me in a shop...this is profiteering at its worst.
We are not stupid. We are consumers. We vote with our dollars.
Stephen King is my favourite author but on principle I will not be buying this until it is considerably less than the paper version. I encourage others to do the same.
Worth every penny
My only regret as I devour this book is that I'm reading it too fast. Before long it will be finished and I'll face a long wait until Mr King gifts me with another.
