Stephen King narrates The Wind through the Keyhole

Listen to this excerpt from The Dark Tower series, read by the author. Hope this holds you over until the eagerly-awaited release on April 24th of this addition to King’s bestselling epic! King decided to step into the recording studio himself to record this new title, which takes place between books 4 & 5 of the seven-book series. King, a huge audiobook fan, gives his listeners a treat on The Wind through the Keyhole from Simon & Schuster Audio – an exclusive audio preview of King’s upcoming novel, Doctor Sleep, the eagerly-awaited sequel to his classic, The Shining, to be published in 2013.

    I listened to a sample of King’s narration of “The Wind Through the Keyhole. The audio book is now ruined for me, I will not buy it. Why Stephen King, an intelligent writer would think he is a narrator is a mystery to me. Why his audio book publisher allowed him to narrate it is an even bigger mystery.

    Everyone: Please help stop Stephen King from narrating his books. Write negative reviews, email his publishers, email Stephen King, do what you can.

    I have been a Stephen King fan since the 70’s. I love his books, but I am very sad to say he is the worst reader I have ever heard. I listen to audiobooks all of the time, and I couldn’t get through this one, I threw it away. He had masterful readers for his Dark Tower series and I don’t know why he would consider reading this one himself. His reading is so bad that he has ruined the story. I will buy the book and read it from the beginning and hope that i can salvage it. Please stephen, stick to writing only!!
