I tried to listen to this book twice. Perhaps the plot is just too slow for audio. It got great reviews, and the storyline seemed interesting. I just can't seem to keep an interest in the book.
I really enjoyed listening to The Mote in God's Eye; the story line still has relevance, and the first encounter scenario was well done. Worth a second listen!
The Talisman is one of my favorite King books. I enjoyed listening to it being read aloud. The story still grabbed me. A fine coming of age story, with just enough horror and excitement. I plan on picking up the sequel, Black House, when my next credit is a available.
OK, this book is now a little dated, but it's still a classic; I remember being shocked by the views on religion and sex. Now, not so much. But Christopher Hurt is a wonderful narrator, and brings the characters to life. Great fun.
