These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Talisman
Anti-Climax Boss: For all the fear and dread Elroy manages to inspire in Jack throughout the entire book, he goes down stupefyingly easy in a hail of machine gun bullets, courtesy of Jack and a train filled with weapons. Even Jack is stunned, equating the act to killing a childhood bogeyman.
Ho Yay: Quite a bit implied between Jack and Wolf.
Also between Jack and Richard, who exchange declarations of love more than once.
Moral Event Horizon: For Heck Bast, it's when his twinner whips Ferd Janklow to death in the ore mine parallel to the Sunlight Home.
