Black House
Black House | Stephen King, Peter Straub
The acclaimed #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling horror novel from the undisputed King of Horror, Stephen Kings Black House is now reprinted for a modern-day audience.Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her Territories Twinner from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories, and was compelled to leave the police force when an odd, happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories.When a series of gruesome murders occur in western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those committed several decades ago by a madman named Albert Fish, the killer is dubbed the Fishman, and Jacks buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help the inexperienced force find him. But are these new killings merely the work of a disturbed individual, or has a mysterious and malignant force been unleashed in this quiet town? What causes Jacks inexplicable waking dreamsif that is what they areof robins eggs and red feathers? Its almost as if someone is trying to tell him something. As this cryptic message becomes increasingly impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he may find the soul-strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest, there to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and have to say I even liked it more than The Talisman. I think the murder mystery aspect of this book‘s plot line grabbed my interest more and I loved the motorcycle gang especially Doc and Mouse. 5 ⭐️ for me!

Spent some quality time with #stephenking and #peterstraub this morning on a 3 mile run. #🏃🏻‍♀️ #spooky #fantasy #fiction #audible #audiobooks my first ever attempt at audiobooking, I have a tendency to space out but we‘re gonna give it a try.

I‘m thinking 25k/10 Miles of running/walking? No clue what that translates to in #audiobooks.

Installed #audible yesterday and downloaded Black House #stephenking for free. Thinking I‘ll put #neilgaiman #GoodOmens on deck because it‘s so topical.

#bookhaul and boot camp 💪

Slowly piecing together the last few books I need for my #expandedDT adventure
Stopped in at the library book sale after the gym and found these guys for about $3.50 🤗

Reggie I once read Desperation and The Regulators back to back and had nightmares for quite a few nights. 7mo
Bookish.SAM Really @Reggie ?!? Excellent! 😊 I‘m super late to the Stephen King game and surprised to find his work not as scary as I thought. I‘m struggling to find a copy of the Regulators and was going to skip it, due to the nature of the 2 books, but your comment is making me rethink that... the search shall continue 👍 7mo

Hello my dear booksworms! I would like to ask if this book is good to read? My husband brought me this book when he was in Iraq. Sad to say, this is the only Stephen King I have..

RaimeyGallant I didn't know King co-authored anything. And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 1y

So this happened. Kindle Fire 8, which I hope lasts longer then my last two android tablets, and hopefully out - performs my Nook. I basically but a reading device that can occasionally do other things without freezing up, lagging horribly, or in general just not working.

I have so many ebooks is not even funny, but for the last year or so I've been unable to read them except on my phone.

I listened to “Ten” yesterday and remembered why I love Pearl Jam so much. #Black isn‘t my favorite PJ song, but only because their catalog is so wonderful.

Another wonderful catalog: Stephen King‘s. There have been rumors of a 3rd book in this series for awhile now. I hope it happens!

#MayBookFlowers #day7 #BlackAndWhiteCovers One of the very few B&W covers I have in my library. I'm a total coverjudger, I know you shouldn't, but like a magpie, I always go for the pretty shiny things. I read this so long ago, I've completely blanked on the story, I'm pretty sure it's the 2nd book in a duology.

Finished up this audiobook today. It was full of some great characters. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

#firstworldbooknerdproblems So I began listening to this audiobook today and was really excited to start it. Very quickly it dawns on me it's sounding very familiar. Yes I have so many books I forgot reading this one!

carys14 I did that once with I think an Elizabeth Peters book but it took me until the LAST 20 pages to realize I had already read it. I figured out who did it and then everything fell into place (the how and the why) too cleanly, with too many esoteric details for me to solve the mystery on my own. Lol 3y
SoniaC @carys14 😂 at least I'm in good company! 3y
carys14 I am not so sure I am "good" company...I read almost the entire book before I realized it. You at least figured it out early!!!! 3y

SoniaC @carys14 No judgment here 😂😂😂 3y
tpixie Lol. That's why I try to keep track with my books with good reads. Although there are still some books before Goodreads that I've read so it doesn't always work!! 3y
SoniaC @tpixie lol I do the same but yes it was pregoodreads so I didn't have it listed. Can't believe I forgot though. 3y

being a big Stephen King fan I was hoping to like this but it just did not hold my interest. I'm not sure if it was because of the collaboration with Peter Straub or not . I cannot see how this can even work. I could not possibly dream of writing a book with another writer because I believe vision is single. Non-fiction is a different story, um, pardon the pun.

Sequel to The Talisman, of course, and a worthy one too though it takes a while to really get going.
