Lost in the Territories,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black House (Kindle Edition)
Black House is the follow up to King and Straub's Talisman , which I somehow found didn't deliverer ! I found Black House the follow up a further dissapontment.
Twenty years on Jack takes early retirement as a senior quality police officer and settles in a small town to unravel the identity of a gruesome demon serial killer nicknamed the fisherman. Blackhouse like the Talisman carries the overdescriptive eerie atmosphere of Straub, also written in the third person confusing , to many uneccesary characters , and sub plots , and to lengthy.
There was a colapse in the foundation of the novel which could have been a runaway succes , as we return to the fantasy land of the Territories, which still failed to leave a mark on me in a jumbled story of paranormal, horror, fantasy and detective /crime. Black house lost it's direction but I struggled and stuck with it. It's worth a read if you are a fan of either King or Straub to make your mind up !
