The Talisman - Peter Straub, Stephen King

“Everything goes away, Jack Sawyer, like the moon. Everything comes back, like the moon.”
Stephen King, The Talisman




Wow...Just wow. I normally have a patten with book's But this book. went "Everywere" I went. i just couldn't put it down. I'm ahead of myself because i'm trying to think of a way i can review this book in the most beautiful way possible because It's just that...A Striking and memorable collaboration from two awesome authors Steven King and Peter Straub.


“Wolf! Right here and now!”


we meet jack Sawyer a 12 year old kid his father gone, his mother dying. Then he meets a stranger - and embarks on a terrifying journey. For Jack must find the Talisman, the only thing that can save his mother.


His quest takes him into the menacing Territories, a parallel world where violence, surprise and the titanic struggle between good and evil reach across a mythic landscape.


To me this wasn't so much a horror but more an epic adventure. King and Straub nailed there collaboration, In this book not only Do you meet jack and wish you had a friend like him! but you meet wolf! and speedy! and get to see what Happen's next. I have to say i was in the middle of this when i popped my book in my bag and headed to buy Black house the second installment to the talisman.


so with that said. this was An absolutely fantastic read Which will leave you with a magical tingle for years afterwards. i really hope you get to read it someday.

Thankyou Mr steven King and to you Mr Peter Straub for writing such an awesome book!
