Well, just to finalise... literature is also a science and any story can be deconstructed using lingvo stylistic tools. But I am not sure such a discussion would be proper on this forum. But u can always take a course of linguistics in the University Or read one of SK's essays on that mtr-some of them are really good.
However, most Constant Readers do not read a SK book, or for that fact any author's books, to deconstruct the written words/story. That is for a University course, not for "pleasure reading". Therein is the problem. Have you tried just reading for the pure pleasure of being taken away to another place or time? Forget what is reality, forget that not every event is accurate, forget items found in the real world are different in the book. Forget structure, forget how it is suppose to be written and just enjoy the journey. I think you might look at The Talisman in a different light.
Personally, I prefer to leave the "science" of writing back in the Literature Courses and just enjoy the gift that SK gives within his books.
