Tricksy ReviewThere is so much that happens in this novel that any thoughts I can cram into one review will always be woefully inadeuate Don t you sometimes think there s to life than orderDon t you want just a little magicIt is perhaps a good thing to read this book three decades down the line separated from the hype that so weighed it down when it was first published 50% Horror 50% Dark Fantasy 50% Straub 50% King and yet not anything you would have expected from either The uotes from Mark Twain that open and close the story make me think that Jack Sawyer s surname isn t coincidental although I reckon The Talisman is Huckleberry Finn than Tom Sawyer There was too much death the world was half made of deathThe novel reuires a flexible mind and is based on the assumption that other worlds exist just below the surface of the one we all live in Normally this kind of thing would only appeal to me in a purely Science Fiction setting what with parallel worlds and all that However the authors manage to keep things tight and steer clear of over indulgence It s a story about the fantastical but it s also a chilling tale of fear and the macabre This is not Narnia He went down the stairs on all fours silent as oiled smoke eyes as red as brake lightsAs befits any good supernatural Horror story there are some fearsome critters to be found here Not all are inherently evil though and I suppose anyone who reads this will love the character of Wolf There was madness here and walking death and gibbering irrationalityThe transformation of Traveling Jack from Jack Sawyer to Jack Sawyer is handled masterfully It represents one of the most palpable feats of character development I have ever read There were some seuences that I felt didn t positively influence the general feel of the novel but that is my personal opinion Also towards the end things get a bit messy the final climaxing scenes are interminably drawn out for no apparent reason This is the only reason I m not giving it five stars It s a story that will probably resonate with me for a while and I might have to say on the issue but not right here and now

My favorite book of all time To me it is just the perfect epic hero s journey story I love that it takes place in the early 80s I love the grittiness and ugliness of what happens to Jack as he travels back and forth between this world and The Territories and I LOVE the character of Wolf The first few chapters are a little slow and not very exciting but they are important and hold crucial story points that will come into play later so to anyone reading this for the first time I recommend sticking it out and reading onbecause it uickly turns to great once the story gets going I could not put it down the first time I read it which was in 6th grade This is the only book besides Catcher in the Rye that I can pick up and just read a few chapters here and there when I feel like it I don t need to read the whole book front to back any but I do love just getting that taste every so often I know I am paid to be a writer for my day job but here s the thing It s hard for me to write reviews since I don t always know how to describe what makes a book good in a way that is elouent and persuasive Despite that I do just want to make it known that this is indeed a VERY GOOD book Read it I m open to discussing it with anyone Traité élémentaire de la peinture (Illustré) once the story gets going I could not put it down the first time I read it which was in 6th grade This is the Swedish Modern: Estrid Ericson, Josef Frank, and Svenskt Tenn: A Coloring Book of Magical Interiors only book besides Catcher in the Rye that I can pick up and just read a few chapters here and there when I feel like it I don t need to read the whole book front to back any but I do love just getting that taste every so Livre de Coloriage Adultes : Mandalas Bien-être: Coloriages, Astuces bien-être, inspirations often I know I am paid to be a writer for my day job but here s the thing It s hard for me to write reviews since I don t always know how to describe what makes a book good in a way that is elouent and persuasive Despite that I do just want to make it known that this is indeed a VERY GOOD book Read it I m Les Techniques de laquarelles open to discussing it with anyone

Twelve year old Jack Sawyer s mother is dying of cancer and the only thing that can save her is The Talisman Can Jack cross America and The Territories to claim it and save his mother I first read The Talisman while waiting for the last three Dark Tower books to be published Thanks to the magic of getting older I forgot 95% of what happened When the ebook fell into my lap I was ready for a rereadBrief Side Bar This book fell into my lap because Goodreads offered me an ebook of my choice in order to share my notes and highlights At first this seemed like a pain in the ass but it wound up being pretty useful when formulating my review Also it beat carrying the massive hard cover around like a cave manThe Talisman is a coming of age tale and also a uest story Jack Sawyer s mom has cancer and the only thing that can save her is The Talisman a mysterious McGuffin housed in a haunted hotel all the way over on the opposite side of the country Fortunately Jack can cross over into The Territories a fantasypseudo western that exists alongside earth Still with meCo written with Peter Straub at the beginning of the 1980s The Talisman simultaneously feels like a dry run for the Dark Tower and a collection of Stephen King s greatest hits up to that point Jack s trek across the country is not that unlike the ka tet s journey to the Dark Tower and the Talisman is referred to as the axle of all worlds on several occasions just like a certain Tower King flirted with the concept of twinners in other books though not by name I have to believe Jack Sawyer is linked to Jake Chambers in some way Maybe King didn t think he d ever finish the Dark Tower so he worked as many ideas from it into The Talisman as he couldThe greatest hits notion I mentioned Specific scenes seemed like they were almost lifted from other king books The talk Speedy gives Jack is a lot like the talk Danny Torrance gets from Scatman Cruthers I know that s not his name but I can t think of it at the moment in The Shining You also get King staples like the spooky tunnel There were echoes of other earlier King books in the mix that I ve already forgotten Not only that there were some future echoes as well The Alhambra hotel anyone Also there were numerous things that would be revisited during various points of The Dark TowerSo where is Peter Straub in all this Honestly I can t say since I ve never read any Straub solo books However there are a few times in the text where the writing lacks a certain Kingliness I ll chalk those up to Straub There was some backtracking I didn t care for that I ll also blame on StraubFor a kitten suisher of this size there wasn t a whole lot in The Talisman that felt like it could be pruned It takes a long time to hoof and thumb across America and The Territories and Jack Sawyer goes through several hells on the way Oatley and Sunlight Gardener s boys home were the worst in my opinion Give me a railroad trip over a radioactive wasteland over those two places any dayA co worker of mine said King is at his best when writing about kids I didn t agree with him at the time but I saw where he was coming from some ways into this book While I thought Jack and later Richie talked like seventeen year olds than twelve year olds what twelve year old doesn t want to go on an adventure I d visit the Territories now as a 40 year old kid I felt for Jack s companions at times but I would also be frustrated trying to travel with Wolf More than once I would have left Richie behind though When Jack finally reached the Agincourt I had the put the book down so I could finish it at home rather than sneak read the rest in my cube The big showdown at the end reminded me a lot of something that happened in The Wastelands I was also really glad of how the ending turned out the ending of Cujo still fresh in my mindThe second time through The Talisman was just as enjoyable as the first time thanks to the magic of forgetting Trial run of the Dark Tower or no The Talisman is an enjoyable epic and a taste of things yet to come from Stephen King Four out of five stars
