15 posts | 33 read | 2 reading | 6 to read
The spellbinding saga of The Talisman is now a stunning graphic novel, vividly illustrated by artist Tony Shasteen. Heres a bold new look at the classic tale of treachery and betrayal that could only have sprung from the imaginations of master storytellers Stephen King and Peter Straub. In a run-down amusement park on a desolate beach in New Hampshire, thirteen-year-old Jack Sawyer is about to learn some hard truthsabout his fathers death, about why he and his mother are on the run from his sinister uncle Morgan, and about the real nature of the mysterious realm Jack once called the Daydreams. Now, with help from his newfound friend Speedy Parker, this young man will reclaim his identity as Travellin Jack and make his first foray back into the Territories to retrieve the magical Talisman, an object of immense cosmic significance. Yet even more important to Jack, the Talisman holds the key to saving his mothers life. In the Terrorities, where monsters lurk, evil watches, and an unbelievably precious prize awaits, Jack embarks upon a desperate quest to fulfill a destiny he never sought but cannot escape. The Talisman: The Road of Trialscomprises Issues 0 through 5 of the thrilling comic book series and features original, never-before-seen material, including interviews and early sketches. Be warned: Once youve seen the Talisman, nothing will ever be the same.

@ljuliel

ljuliel Thank you for the answers ! Nothing wrong with being a Stephen King fan. I think you‘re in quite a large crowd in that area. He‘s very popular . I need to post my answers when I get a couple minutes. I think your short book beats mine. I‘m not sure on page counts. Thanks again ! 📚 (edited) 2y

Decided to transfer my 100 Book Bucket list into a more manageable book instead of a binder. Especially since I will have to read a lot of these as e-books. Maple is a great supervisor.

Mehso-so

I dont know why I didnt enjoy this more. I loved Ghost Story by Straub and this story wasn't bad. I think I picked it at the wrong time and also the narration was annoying. I just couldn't get that into it for some reason.

Bookladylinda I read this one years ago and I want to read it again at some point. A bad narrator can mess up a good book. 3y

P is for Peter Straub.

King & Straub co-authored The Talisman, & followed up several years later with Black House. These aren‘t as well-known as many of King‘s other works, & that‘s a shame - not only are they fantastic, they link into the Dark Tower opus.
And Straub is an amazing writer in his own right. Check comments below for recommendations 👇🏻

GarthRanzz I‘ve always loved Straub‘s work and The Talisman was great! I‘ve yet to read Black House though. But what I really am excited for is the Steven Spielberg owns the rights to The Talisman and wants to work with King on a movie version. 4y
Sweettartlaura @GarthRanzz I heard about that. Then again, I keep hearing all his stuff is getting made into movies/series. So I‘ll believe it when I see it... and when I see it‘s good 😉 4y
RachelAmphlett OMG - The Talisman is one of my favourite books ever! 4y
RachelAmphlett @GarthRanzz I didn‘t know that! 4y
Bookladylinda I read The Talisman so long ago! I definitely want to read it again along with Black House! 4y

The other magnetic bookmark and the extra I received in the post from byEpicPage on etsy. Truer words have never been said Stephen King.

The book I was reading here is The Talisman, written by Peter Straub and Stephen King. I am really enjoying reading this book despite hearing some mixed reviews about it before I started reading it.

MsBlueSox I first read this in high school, and I don't think I slept for a week! 5y
Bookery_Nook @MsBlueSox Right?! I have read a few of Stephen Kings books and Peter Straub's Floating Dragon but this has kept me awake a bit longer at night. I'm surprised by some of the reviews I have read where people said they read this at the age of 10 and were completely fine! 5y

Guys...this is big. I only need 2 more books, Night Shift and The Colorado Kid, and I will have a copy of every single Stephen King book. 😳 It's kind of crazy to imagine. I might lose my mind a little when it happens. The happiness will ensue.

Texreader So cool!!! 5y
