The story is very good. A little confusing at first because it skips around a lot, but after the first two or three chapters its makes since. This book has a very interesting story and an ending that is fits like a feather on a dreamcatcher :).
The audio recording its self is alright. Between the parts there is an interruption of music and a change of reader, which I find distracting. And every now and again the audio book skips and is laggy. Other then that its ok.
The narrator was fantastic, no question there. My problem is, I'm a huge King fan, abs this just wasn't anywhere near his best work. As always, his character development was sublime, but, frankly, this would have been better as a short story. There just isn't enough plot to justify an entire novel.
I would listen to another Stephen King book, but this one started out good, and got about half way through, i just couldn't hang on. when i saw i still had another 12 hours to go, i knew there was no way it would get my attention completely again.
i think Jeffrey DeMunn's performance was just fine.
The story was a little slow with not nearly as riveting a story as other King books I have read.
One issue with the audible version is the skipping and problems with the recording in certain instances.
Steven king at his best. Good horror and excellent characters. A must read if you love Stephen king. Bon appetite
I loved the storytelling and how King intertwined the past and the present so well.
I think Josie. I just enjoyed all parts of the story that included him.
I think he did an amazing job of conveying the feeling and actions of the characters through his reading of Dreamcatcher.
Duddits because he was such a key part of the whole story and bringing the boys together.
Jeffrey DeMunn (Dale from Walking Dead for those who are fans of the show) gives a great performance and brings the story to life.
This is a pretty wacked out book and I can't think of a book that is similar. The story does remind me of Invasion of the Body Snatchers are something Cronenberg might come up with in movie form.
When one of the guys is trapped with Mr. Gray in the cabin. A squirm inducing moment of body horror that is not easily forgotten.
I'd say its either Jonesy or Duddits. Both are the most memorable out of the main group who must face the evil around them.
This is a lot like It in some ways where we have lots of flashbacks between adulthood and childhood and how it all weaves together.
I listen to pass time at work...so yes, It was well spent. I don't think anyone will feel that Dreamcatcher is a life changing piece of work. I certainly did not.
He just misses sometimes. This time he missed. It's a book. It's a long book. It's Stephen King making house payments.
I don't know that I found myself enjoying the characters of this novel much. In fact I disliked most of them so much that I often cheered in the event of their demise.
It certainly inspired me to not read Dreamcatcher a second time.
this book is near the bottom of the King books in regard to quality. My wife warned it that "It sucked". I should listen to my wife more often.
