Love to read as I drive; never leave home without. Love the Cousins O'Dwyer Books #1 - made me feel I was there. Narrator X-celent! Purrfekt
went back into the 'territories' after so many years had passed... loved the entire book and Frank Muller was awesome... again!
Didn't laugh or cry... wasn't that type book; it WAS a breath-holder with all the twists and turns only S.King can create
I particularly enjoyed the characters in this book. Sadly, I had not yet read The Talisman when I read Black House, so I did it all backwards. Don't let that stop you though. This is classic King. Exciting, colorful and creepy.
Not sure. Still reading the Talisman which pales by comparison.
The most effective scene was the slow and agonizing death of the biker. It was awful - I could envision it all. Very...maybe entirely too...graphic. I was queasy through several chapters.
"Be sure to pick up your barf-bag at the ticket window."
In spite of the brutality and very graphic violence, I'd still recommend this as an excellent book for Stephen King fans.
I love Stephen King as much as the next guy, but I probably would not. It was a good story, but I suppose that I've grown tired of the Territories.
The Talisman and The Dark Tower series. Same settings and familiar faces.
Frank Muller was incredible as always. If you've read/listened to The Talisman, you should definitely experience this conclusion of the tale.
A trail running enthusiast, I also enjoy zymurgy, interpretive dance while wearing animal costumes, science fiction and inappropriate humor.
I've listened to Black House several times. It's a great sequel to The Talisman but stands alone as well. Frank Muller (RIP) is an engaging and overall entertaining narrator. The characters have not only come alive but have become old acquaintances.
Jack Sawyer remembering his past.
The description at the beginning of Wisconsin and the mention of places that are almost, but not quite, real. The "giant six-pack" for instance (it was never Kingsland Ale!).
Henry Laden. He's just oozes cool.
I downloaded this book not knowing it was the sequel to The Talisman (which I never read). But nonetheless, I was able to follow what was going on and enjoyed Black House. I really liked the suspense and build-up of the story, and the motley crew of characters.
Again, I enjoyed this story but haven't compared it to the Talisman. I did encounter a few audio glitches, though, but nothing major.
The narrator is always great, but this story is not for me. But, for ten dollars... Sure why not. I have nothing terrible to say about it. But if you have read The Talisman, and are expecting The Talisman... you won't get The Talisman.
