I am yet to read the talisman, I've been getting closer with each new book I start. This time I picked it up, read a few lines and put it back down and started duma key. From what I understand I have quite a journey waiting for me when I'm ready to take it.
At least when you stopped reading the greatest book SK ever wrote, you picked up the 2nd greatest book he ever wrote. ;;D

Get Jake, Jack, the Losers, the kids from The Body, all of em off on a big epic train track quest from Castle Rock into Mid-world to kill another It or something. 3000 pages. Total geekpocolypse. That's what I want for Christmas.
We have had some very sad time. John's passing took a chunk of my heart. Same with Sharon and Mary. Remember the memorial party where we got together and got smashed online? My weren't we the cat's ********. We were hung over.

Took me a while to get there, too. When you are ready you will love it.

I'd like to read this one again, along with Insomnia, Roadwork, Desperation, and Four Past Midnight.
I loved The Talisman because it was very difficult to predict what was coming. I loved the story and Jack's life or death quest.
