The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub

By (Publisher)

On a brisk autumn day, a thirteen-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: his father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America and into another realm.

One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery. Jack Sawyer, on a desperate quest to save his mother?s life, must search for a prize across an epic landscape of innocents and monsters, of incredible dangers and even more incredible truths. The prize is essential, but the journey means even more. Let the quest begin. . . .

--big time reader

"This is truly one of the most heartwarming tales ever told . Not being a big Stephen King fan , I was reluctant to pick the book up . Boy , was I wrong ! After the first page I was immediately drawn into young Jack Sawyer's world ( or should I say worlds ). Reading this will change your life. You will long for the good old days of childhood and all of it's amazing adventures and endearing friendships . It also resonates with such admirable virtues as stamina , self-sufficiency and loyalty . Jack Sawyer is a hero in every sense of the word !"


"It was the best fantasy book I have ever read. Totally Awesome."


"This is truely one of the best books I have ever read. I have several of your other seperate books but this is the only one that I've read that combines your talents and for once I didn't want the book to end."
