The first (1984) collaboration between horror/fantasy writers King and Straub, this book has been reissued in multiple formats to coincide with the publication of its sequel, Black House. In The Talisman, 12-year-old Jack Sawyer takes on a quest in this and a parallel world, the "Territories," to acquire a mystical talisman that will save the life of his dying mother and her "twinner," the Queen of the Territories. Jack "flips" back and forth between worlds during his journey, finding his way through and past representatives of good and evil in both. Award-winning reader Frank Muller continues his long string of superlative performances. This program will generate lots of demand a must for current fiction collections. Also available in the newer, highly compressed MP3-CD format, which requires a CD player that is MP3-compatible or a computer with CD-ROM drive and MP3 player software loaded. Kristen L.

A slow start , but once you get into the story. It,s hard to put down.
Five. Stars. From a avid. Reader.
Liked best the characters, especially Jack & Wolf.
Disliked nothing except the end came too soon.
Recommended to anyone who needs a fantasy world to escape to for awhile.
One of my faves in King 's collection. Nothing like a Quest to save the worlds! Looking forward to starting Black House...again.Published 18 months ago by Nicola MacNaughton
...boring. What a string of hapless experiences this boy endures. Not a friend to be found (that isn't a wolf). I like King, but man, pick it up a bit broPublished on July 30 2012 by Tim
What a great book, I did think however it was quite longer than it could have been with all the little obsticles Jack has to overcome, but I guess it just adds to his quest. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2005 by Michael Beveridge
