...that there are no threads started here yet. I really love this story...
One of my favorites.
...Wolf!...God pound it!....
i think this is my favorite book of ALL time.....
I gave this book to Evan to read after he finished EotD but he didn't get very far. I thought he was going to love it and told him it starts just a little slow, but he just didn't have the patience I guess. I wish he would have made it to where Jack really starts travellin', I KNOW he would like it. We'll try it again in a year or so, maybe.
He loved EotD though, so I'ma gonna make an SK fan out of him yet! Trying to be selective about the content is a little difficult for me, since he is just about at the age I was when I started reading SK. Funny how that changes when you're a parent!!
Jack is a secret crush that i still hold in my heart. 'Black House' just wasn't the same for me....
i'll always picture him as that brave, beautiful boy who risked everything just to save his mom. That's the boy i will always love.
I loved this book. First read it when I was about Jack's age, and it just took me away, was amazing! I've re-read it a couple times since, and just love it more each time
I've always felt like I had a bit of ol' Travelin' Jack in my blood. Whenever I've done a re-read of this, it's made me want to hit the road.
...I feel ya...right there with you Lily....
This was the first book that made me weep. I adored The Talisman. And this passage bruised my heart.
"Wolf collapsed like a falling tree.
Jack knelt, turned him over. The hair was melting away from Wolf's cheeks with the eerie speed of time-lapse photography. His eyes had gone hazel again. And to Jack he looked horribly tired.
"Jacky--" Wolf raised a bloody hand and touched Jack's cheek.
"Shoot...you? Did he..."
"No," Jack said, cradling his friend's head. "No, Wolf, never got me. Never did."
"I..." Wolf's eyes closed and then opened slowly again. He smiled with incredible sweetness and spoke carefully, enunciating each word, obviously needing to convey this if nothing else. "I...kept...my herd...safe."
Now I'm sniffling into my coffee, DJ. I liked Jack in Talisman (Black House was just meh for me), but I LOVED Wolf.
Wasn't that a fantastic passage?
Just listened to the audiobook again earlier this year, I think I like it more every time I read it.
Who does the audio? I love audios and may just have to add this one to my collection.
That's a Frank Muller one.
I purchased that one on Audible.com. Well worth it. Also, I really liked Black House as well, and I purchased that one too.
I must read again.
Don't hurt your heart, dear. You started us again.
Never listened to it on audiobook...but I think I should. Or at least do another reread....it's time..........
...one of his best ever...the pathos was almost unendurable...
