    Stephen King and Peter Straub reintroduce you to Jack Sawyer of The Talisman, once a precocious boy traversing the Territories to save his mother and her "twinner," now a retired homicide detective drawn back to his past.

    "Poor book or narrator, probably both?!"
    Overall

    I turned this off after two chapters. My criticism of the book is I kept waiting for the story to take off but it was an hour and a half of introduction and it didn't seem like the story was ever going to begin. My criticism of the narrator is that it was droning. I had a hard time focusing and felt my mind wandering back to the real world. Really couldn't hold my attention. I have about 200 audiobooks and this is the first I haven't liked.

    No wonder it's so hard to lose weight, our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. It's embedded in our DNA. Our diet has changed dramatically over the past ten thousand years, but our genetic blueprint has not, our bodies are not designed to process the types of food we are fed today.

    "Excellent resource"
    Overall

    I have had a problem with fatigue and weight gain since I had my thyroid removed. This addressed both. I enjoyed the entire book and the insight I was able to gain from the quizes. I noticed other reviewers had frustration with accessing the supporting documentation. I found it available at the bottom of the listing and quite easy to download from audible.com.
