Fantasy. Fiction. Horror. HTML:On a brisk autumn day, a thirteen-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: his father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America--and into another realm.

One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery. Jack Sawyer, on a desperate quest to save his mother's life, must search for a prize across an epic landscape of innocents and monsters, of incredible dangers and even more incredible truths. The prize is essential, but the journey means even more. Let the quest begin. . . .

Features a preview of Stephen King and Peter Straub's new book Black House.

    Valjeanne: A real page-turner collaboration between Peter Straub and Stephen King! More "flipping" between alternate dimensions, shape-shifting good guys and bad guys, and a hero you'll love. :-)

I'd read The Talisman several times but it was decades ago. It wasn't as good to me as I'd recalled but I enjoyed it well enough nonetheless.

The Talisman tells the story of Jack Sawyer, a 12 year old who discovers another world called The Territories. Most people have a "Twinner" in the Territories; someone who's like them but not exactly. Anyway, Jack learns he must cross the country from NH to CA to retrieve the Talisman so he can not only save his mother from cancer in the American Territories but the queen of The Territories (who's also his mother).

Along the way, Jack gets trapped into working at a tavern where everyone's mean to him, to meeting and befriending a werewolf (creatively named Wolf), to getting thrown into an orphanage where evil is afoot.

While not really connected to the Dark Tower (although there are very similar concepts), I'd say it's DT adjacent.

Again, good but not great. ( )

It's been many years since my last Stephen King read, but it was like riding a bike: a hero, a journey with scary thrills, and a happy ending. I hear they're making a series out of this—produced by the Duffer Brothers (that's right, Stranger Things)—and cannot wait to see it. ( )

Prior to picking this book up recently I'd swear up and down that I'd read it, not once but twice. However, I am beginning to doubt that as I remembered nothing of the novel after about 50 pages in.

For some reason I had a really hard time making my way through this book. Not because it is bad but more due to pacing issues. Also, going into this knowing it was written by King and Straub kept me distracted at times since I spent a bit of bandwidth trying to guess which portions were written by each. Most of the book seemed to bog down at times but the last 100 pages or so really made up for it and tied up the story nicely. Overall, a good book but not as great as I (falsely?) remember. ( )

I had a real problem with this book. The lead character's dialog wasn't working for me. I couldn't "hear" it. The part just before the end was pretty good. I suspect Stephen King wrote that part. I am going to state Peter Straub wrote the parts I did not enjoy. The last few pages I only read the first sentence every every paragraph. I wanted to know how it ended, but it wasn't worth it. Oh well, hope my next book is better.

Well, when Tom and me got to the edge of the hilltop, we looked away down into the village and could see three or four lights twinkling, where there was sick folks, may be; and stars over us was sparkling ever so fine; and down by the village was the river, a whole mile broad, and awful still and grand. -Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn
My new clothes was all greased up and clayey, and I was dog-tired. -Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn
