So many books (you know the rest)
The Talismanby Stephen KingPublished in 1984 (I finished it on December 03, 2013)
It’s not that the book is awful.The characters are creative and believable.The problem is mainly that they come off as stock Stephen King archetypal characters. The good guys are really good. The bad guys are really bad, And there’s really not a lot in between. And all this makes for rather uninteresting reading.
Granted, it may be that I’ve read these kinds of stories before, yet, I don’t know.I t just wasn’t an adventure that I ever got sucked into. I never thought the hero would not finish his journey and succeed with flying colors. I went along with it because I had purchased the audiobook and it was far too much money to just drop. If it had been a printed edition, I don’t think I would’ve finished it.
And I do enjoy most Stephen King novels, with the most recent ones being “Under the Dome and “11/22/63 –two outstanding works.
So I guess I’ll try again.
