If you have not read The Talisman...that'd be first up. Watch the spoilers when you look at various threads. I'm not bothered by reading plot or character elements in a thread if I have not read the story...about the only thing I'd consider a spoiler is the death of a character. But mileage differs among models. I really enjoyed Desperation, but I read some recent posts that differed. I read Lisey's Story five six times...I've read most of them multiple times. It is another great story.
