The Talisman

The Talisman - Peter Straub, Stephen King I started this book in July. I forced myself to read it. I love King, and the only book of his I *forced* myself to finish was Lisey's Story. I thought that that book was the only book of his I didn't like. I was wrong. The Talisman is a very long book that drags on needlessly. The only thing that struck me was how miserable King & Straub make life seem. Nothing but pain and murder. I didn't see a point at all. Why continue going on? There was just more horrific things to be seen. The ending was very abrupt and God help me, I have Black House. I hope this sequel will be good.

I was told this book was like The Dark Towers series. No wonder I never wanted to read them!
