Publisher's Summary

A dark and sweeping adventure, Dreamcatcher is set in the haunted city of Derry - the site of Stephen King's It and Insomnia. In it, four young boys stand together and do a brave, good thing, an act that changes them in ways that they hardly understand.

A quarter-century later, as grown men who have gone their separate ways, these friends come together once a year to hunt in the woods of Maine. This particular year, a stranger stumbles into their campsite, and before long, the friends are plunged into the most remarkable adventure of their lives. They wind up in a life and death struggle, their only hope for survival locked in their shared past...and in the dreamcatcher.

    "Did you get to see the movie?"

    Really -- I'm not trying to sound like a smart-aleck, but did you get to see the movie "Dreamcatcher", reviewer "dkeichner". I'd really like to know if you liked it.

    And I thought this story couldn't get worse!

    "Mindless and confused"

    This book is a waste of time. Especially in audio format where it is difficult to go back and try to untangle a confused, confusing, and fundamentally pointless tale. I know that Stephen King is highly regarded and this is the first book I have "read" by him but he writes here like he learned his writing by reading the National Enquirer and watching Entertainment Tonight. His characters are not well developed, the story is implausible, and there is no surprise factor to any of it - almost predictable.

    Don't waste your time.

    "The Regulators"

    I really like the story, but I did not care for the narrator. I also did not like the sound effects in between chapters. This is why I only gave it 3 stars.
