    I had the same issue with The Talisman, but then I stumbled across an audio-book version and it was just what I needed.

I just finished Black House (enjoyed it, after the slow start), now I have The Talisman on my reading list for the near future. For some reason, I think I started this book years ago, and put it down and never got back to it. But I do not remember any details, which means I did not get very far.

    Still on American Gods. Damn good book!

    I'll have to check out some more of Gaiman's books.

    I changed my mind about reading "Double Feature", and jumped into "11/22/63" first. After Ambrose's non-fiction account of "6/6/44" (a watershed moment if ever there was one!), it was a perfect switch into reading SK's fictional account of Kennedy's assassination. I loved the storyline and falling back into that era was a pleasure. The language, the culture, the history...I dug it all, and SK renders it beautifully in this novel. We went camping this last weekend, and thanks to some rainy, cold weather, I finished the last half of the book in record time (for me!) It's been awhile since I have read SK, so I was definitely ready for this one. It lived up to it's billing, and then some! I was interested to read in the afterword that Joe Hill thought up a "new and better" ending, because I thought the ending was PERFECT. Once I got to where I only had a couple hundred pages left to read, I had to fight with myself not to skip to the last few pages and read (a nasty habit I indulge in occasionally), and I was so glad that I didn't do that. It made the ending all that much better for me. Until next time, happy reading...

    Reading Blind Date by R.L. Stine. It seems though that everyone's reading The Talisman. Don't know why but is there something I should know about that I'm missing? Although I'm gonna continue on it next week, I have too many books to read right now. And finals are coming up really fast. So that makes it double the effort.

    Gaiman is a favorite on the board. My personal favorite is Neverwhere. I read it at least once a year.

    OK, Shasta, this is where we differ! I have read Stardust and The Graveyard Book, both very appealing in outline to me, but found them both boring and not very well written. I just knew we couldn't agree on everything!

    BUT WAIT!!!!

    Stardust is well considered fan's least favorite.

    And the Graveyard Book is for kids and written that way.

    Try Neverwhere and come back to me.
