Loved it... Very smooth ... easy tranaction... would not think twice about making another purchase from this vendor. Bought this book because it is one of my favorite Stephen King books... I have read the book many times and even owned it at one point.. I loaned it to some one and the book never found it's way home... I am happy to say that a copy of The Talisman is now a member of of my Stephen King collection once again
The Talisman by Stephen King
Stephen King never disappoints. As with all of his books that I've read, the story was imaginative and original. Lots of suspense mixed with humor. Some good twists, too. This is a book that will hold your interest, you won't want to put it down. This story wasn't too dark, a nice change. And it actually had a good ending, a lost art nowadays. I highly recommend this book.
a favorite for years
seriously, this book has stayed with me since i first read it when i was 12 (even though it's long, i've read it 4 or 5 times). the characters are so well realized and the epic adventure of a kid hasn't been done this well again - jack would make harry potter look like a pansy fool. it's funny, haunting, scary and emotionally deep. love it!
Talisman holds up over time
I read this book back when I was in my 20's...it's wonderful to read it again and see how well it holds up. However, it is really LONG! I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel as I never knew there was one until now! Happy reading
An Epic of epic proportions
768 pages of honor, friendship, and love. A 12-year-old boy embarks on a quest through two worlds to find The Talisman. Character development is exceptional with richly-detailed location descriptions, smoothly transitioning between worlds as the boy faces unspeakable trials to save his mother's life. This one is a keeper!!!
