I'm debating which one to get, any suggestions? Maybe it'll help if I list the king books I have read.

UtD is a good read, but Talisman is a must.

Well I'm glad to see I'm not the only vote for Under the Dome. I couldn't finish The Talisman, whereas I just devoured Under the Dome.

THE TALISMAN is one of my favorite King books, so I voted for that one.

However if you want to join in the discussions of what's new, I'd recommend reading UTD first. The other will always be there.

UTD is 20

Not everywhere. (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0340992565/ref=nosim/booksprice-21)

and I can't find The Talisman ANYWHERE

The internet is your friend. (http://www.booksprice.co.uk/comparePrice.do?l=y&searchType=compare&inputData=0340952717&st=UK)

This website (http://www.booksprice.co.uk) is handy for comparisons.

That being said I can understand if you wish to support your local bookshop, they're having a bit of a hard time at the moment. I'm sure there'll be copies, it's a fairly popular book.

The thing is Brainslinger, I don't have any money in my account, I have it all in cash.

Ah. Okay, gotcha. Try to put some into your account when you can though.

I know that's easier said than done if you're unemployed or a student. I know what that's like, I'll have to re-register with the Jobcentre soon myself now I've finished my temp Christmas work.

Mark - I would really really recogmend The Talisman - just for the simple fact that its AMAZING!! :) it's a very nice read and there's the amazing DT theme'd sequel The BlackHouse which is also amazing!! :)
I've not read UTD yet, but I am planning to when I finish the Dark Tower series!! :)

Have you tried Liverpool City Center? I'm pretty certain that the Waterstones in either Bold Street or Liverpool 1 will have The Talisman (and if not they are normally really good at ordering books in for you if you can wait :))

My local second-hand bookshop has about 3 copies of the Talisman at the moment. I definitely recommend it.

Haven't read Talisman yet its on my list! UTD is a good read but i thought the ending was a bit abrupt. I also agree with alinda on getting IT , a great book.
