    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    "buy the book and read it yourself"
    Overall

    This is an interesting story. Unfortunately the narrator's style ruined it for me. He seemed to be one of those announcer-voiced guys who uses the same tone and inflection for most words, regardless of meaning (bad acting). I found it distracting and difficult to follow the story. It made me wonder if he was reading the book for the first time and was missing the point.

    Story
    (1830)

    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.

    Swad says: "Still Good"
    "Very annoying narration"
    Overall

    In a WORLD.. where the NARRATOR... reads almost each line of the STORY... with the same emphasis and CADENCE ... this Reader is going to go CRAZY... before 29 hours are up.
    (Note ALL CAPs should be read in a hoarse, "mysterious" whisper.)

    I love Stephen King's storytelling. I hated this narrator's style. It interfered with my ability to transcend him and "see" the story. The problem of listening to the story while tuning out the reader/narrator gave me a headache.

    The narrator's characterizations/voices often seemed to be cliche stereotypes. Especially irritating was the high-pitched whine that he used for his adolescent boys and hysterical bad guys -- very annoying.
