    Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski led a double life beyond anything ever seen on The Sopranos, becoming one of the most notorious professional assassins in American history while hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Now, after 240 hours of face-to-face interviews with Kuklinski and his wife and daughters, author Philip Carlo tells his extraordinary story.

    "Intriguing"
    Overall

    I found this book intriguing. Certainly, the subject may have stretched the facts of some stories, but I found it believable. It was interesting seeing life through the eyes of someone on the other side of the average American experience. Be aware, the language is strong, but not constant. I have only found a couple of places in the book that were slow for a short period. I highly recommend this book unless you are easily "grossed out".

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-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.

    Overall

    Agreed. The narrator is bad, but even he shows more talent than the writing of this book. This book is offensive religiously, morally, sexually, genderly, racially and in short the story line just stinks. I have tried so many times to just weather this book that I am done with King. Yes, he has written some great stuff previously, but has offended me in so many ways with this one, that I am just done!
