    Overall

    I find that there are two types of Stephen King books: the really innovative and creative ones where he stretches your imagination, and then the kind of so-so ones that fill the gaps between the entries into the first group. He's SO good when he's good, and Dreamcatcher is definitely a quality entry.

    One of the reviews noted that it was too slow in the beginning and that there was too much toilet humor. Well, I'm not a fan of toilet humor either, personally, but the CHARACTERS are real types of boys because of those sorts of little quips. Not all boys/men talk like that, certainly, but these guys do (or did, as much of it happened in childhood and you experience it in flashbacks or you hear them smiling back at the old, silly expressions they used to use). And as for being slow in the beginning, it's fairly painstaking character development. But it is your interest in this group of friends that is paramount to your continuing interest in the story, so it is necessary. And more than that, for those of us that like character-driven fiction (although there's plenty of plot here for the plot-driven fiction folks, too, although you need to get an hour or two in), it's enjoyable as well.

    This was my first audiobook and I'm worried that I've been spoiled! A good way to start.
