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.

    "Not my favorite SK book, but still fun"

    To me, this book was pure entertainment. A well structured story with nods to classic sci-fi movies like Invader of the Body Snatchers and The Thing. There are some really scary moments, and plenty of gross, gory details to satisfy the little kid in all of us. Not my favorite Stephen King story in terms of subject matter and characters, but it's great if you're just looking for something fun.

    "Not bad, but not what I expected"

    More of a sci-fi novel than body horror, as I had previously expected. Gets interesting about 2/3rds of the way through. The ending, however, is fairly predictable.

    "Absolutely brilliant"

    This is quite possibly my favorite King novel, and the audiobook is amazingly well done. The performance is exactly what it should be, with minor voices thrown in to differentiate between characters, but nothing intrusive or flow-breaking. There was a period during chapter twelve when the recording fouled and sounded like an old cd skipping, but other than that little qualm I have to rate this one five stars in every category. Mouth noises and breaths are kept to an absolute minimum, which is a blessing and show of skill on the parts of the narrator and production team. Buy this one, you won't regret it.

    "Great reading, great book!"

    This book was a bit slow starting out but had me on the edge of my seat towards the end. The audio skipped a bit in one chapter, other than that it sounded great!

    "Amazing performance!"

    Wow! I have so many audiobooks it isn't even funny and this is by far the best performance on any of them! Worth getting for the reading alone! I am an atrociously terrible flyer and this book has gotten me through 23k miles. I thank you Mr. DeMunn:)

    "Typical King storyline and characters."
    What did you love best about Dreamcatcher?

    The main characters of this story are all very relate-able, even the non-human ones. You become invested in their livelihood and backstory almost immediately.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreamcatcher?

    When the boys saved Duddits from his teen antagonists. It sticks out because it is probably more far-fetched than even alien invasion. Most little kids just don't act and think this way and it really singles this group out as something special.


    Who was the most memorable character of Dreamcatcher and why?

    Beaver and his colloquialisms made him very likeable and memorable.


    Any additional comments?

    This is another typical King story that puts me in mind of The Stand, The Gunslinger series, or The Body where you are almost immediately immersed into the life and times of the book and become emotionally invested with the actions of each character. I highly recommend this book and reader.
