In the Talisman, a 12-year old boy named Jack Sawyer, takes on a special quest. During the story, he flips through two worlds. Our own, and another world called the Territories. He does this to find a talisman that will save his mother's life.
I think Stephen King wrote a great story that entertained me and kept me reading it. The Talisman is a book of loyalty, awakening, terror and mystery. I also loved Jack because of his great courage, knowing that he would have to get the talisman, or his mother would die. Not only would he loose his own mother, but his father is gone as well.
