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.

    "Good story, but recording skips"

    Started reading the book many times, but never sat down to finish it. Downloaded the book to listen to on a cross-country move. Started out fine, but then there were many times that it would sound like a skipping CD that had scratches on it. Happened at least a dozen times. Then, there were long pauses occasionally like a CD was being changed (I thought this because they were pretty regular and happened about 15 times). Frustrating, thinking you had a truly digital copy, but realizing somebody just copied the CD over and never checked it.

    Not a bad story, and more in depth than the movie, but frustrating recording.

    Story
    "It's Steven King"

    I love the man. I think sometimes he is in my head or maybe even more frightening he's in mine, yowsers!
    Is it believable? Well, no. But that's the fun of it. Is the premise believable, that we aren't alone in the universe? Well, yeah.
    It's got his humor which no one can touch as consistently as he does. It's got it's human morality of a kind that we all have but may not admit to having.
    It's enjoyable from start to finish.
    Sure I've read/heard more profound, but not necessarily written better. I don't know where or how he finds the humor to put in his stories at just the right place, but he does. I like even his worst books (that's a relevant term here), and they all have redeeming points in them. I like his Derry, Maine books. In fact I'm fixing to listen to another that I think I missed! So, no concerns. If you've never read King you're definitely missing out. His books are in a genre all their own.

    Story
    "the narration good, the story ok, kept skipping."

    I kept trying to finish this. but after the third time it stuttered and skipped along I had to give up. I at first thought it might be my device but no. the time was ticking away normally. I'm afraid it was just to distracting. the story was fantastical, and scattered, but somehow still interesting. almost like watching an accident happening. not kings most cohesive work.

    "Fantastic! "

    Jeffrey DeMunn did a fantastic job with the different voices. The story got a bit dry and boring at times but overall, it was worth the listen!

    "Thanks Mr King"

    Stephen King is a genius I love everything he writes. He's a rare writer that I can re-read his books and enjoy them again like the first time.

    "100 times better than the movie"

    Forget what you saw in the movie - I didn't like it and had avoided this book for years. After I read it I kicked myself for not reading it sooner!

    "A great story!!"
    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey DeMunn – was your favorite?

    I thought that Beav was my favorite, although he did a pretty good job with almost all of them.

    "Love this story again and again."

    Big fan of S. King. Heard in an interview that King did not like this story, but I think it is one of his best. The relationship between friends young and old, threw the good and bad was the best part. will read/listened again soon!
