The iconic, “extraordinary” (The Washington Post) collaboration between #1 bestselling author Stephen King and Peter Straub—an epic thriller about a young boy’s quest to save his mother’s life.
Why had twelve-year-old Jack Sawyer’s mother frantically moved the two of them from Rodeo Drive to a New York City apartment to the Alhambra, a fading ocean resort and shuttered amusement park in New Hampshire? Who or what is she running from? She is dying . . . and even young Jack knows she can’t outrun death. But only he can save her—for he has been chosen to search for a prize across an epic landscape of dangers and lies, a realm of innocents and monsters, where everything Jack loves is on the line.
This book took me back to my childhood. The fabric of two worlds blurred. Very good read.
One of my favorite books of all time!
Read this book 3 times, great characters, if Harry potter was rated R and took place in a more real environment. It was a journey that you never wanted to end. Good thing Peter Straub was there to make sure it did..haha! And what a great ending...unlike some of the others I've read by Steven King. I promised you won't be disappointed. Once you get past the first 60 pages or so things really pick up!
This was first published in 1984. The store says it was published in September, 2012, but that date is probably for the electronic version here. Regardless, good book.
