    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story
    (1810)

    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Great Story - Listening to this guy tell it was awful.


    What other book might you compare The Talisman to and why?

    Story takes fun and unexpected twists into fantasy....


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This guy's habit of dragging out the last syllable of words was too much to take. I couldn't even finish the audio book.. Very disappointing.


    Could you see The Talisman being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No - Way too much to cram into 2 or 3 hours.
