Read in December, 2010

I have gotten about 150 pages into this book, and it is clear that nothing will happen fast. This book was written just after Stephen King's famous car accident, and it is clear that Peter Straub is doing most of the writing. He is trying to copy King's brilliant book starting manner of introducing characters slowly by showing their actions and so on. But literally the 150 pages that I did read could have been summed up in about 20. Literally nothing happens except introducing the evil black house, and introducing Jack Sawyer. Going on about these random characters at first so much when all the reader cares about is Jack Sawyer is stupid. Maybe the book gets better after the first 150 pages. I do not know, and sadly I do not care. I am a gigantic Stephen King fan, and I am sad to see the sequel to the Talisman be so boring.
