Book 8  
Book 8: The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
Bottom Line: Like many of the people who have read and reviewed this book, I was skeptical about the thrice-nested Russian-doll-like aspect of this novel(la? I know it's not a novella but to read a Dark Tower book of reasonable length from Stephen King makes it feel like practically a short story). Unlike many other readers, I think I worked well enough. It would have been hard to un-tease them. The outermost tale was probably the least necessary and the least interesting and could have been dropped, but the inner most two were necessarily nested, though I wonder how Roland could tell a tale about the man in black and not realize that he is telling a story in which Martin is a character. I was also quite disappointed with Jamie; he was a non-character, and quite different from seeing Roland with Cuthbert and Alain.
