Publisher's Summary

Suspenseful, frightening, and sometimes howlingly funny, a story of invasion and battle, survival and heroism. It is a story of how men remember ... and how they love.

In Derry, Maine, four young boys once stood together and did a brave thing. Something that changed them in ways they hardly understand.

A quarter of a century later, the boys are men who have gone their separate ways. Though they still get together once a year, to go hunting in the north woods of Maine. But this time is different. This time a man comes stumbling into their camp, lost, disoriented and muttering about lights in the sky.

Before long, these old friends will be plunged into the most remarkable events of their lives as they struggle with a terrible creature from another world. Their only chance of survival is locked in their shared past - and in the Dreamcatcher.

Missing the zing!

Not the usual King's style. Narration could have been more intriguing. little disappointed with the experience.

This wasn't a book I enjoyed

Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Jeffrey DeMunn?

Absolutely I have read many Stephen King books & listened to some to one he read 'Bag of Bones' & loved it, I listen to lots of books I have read & enjoyed over the years but I occasionally come across 1 I just can't get into. This was one of those

What do you think your next listen will be?

Ive already had lots since this & I'd love to listen to "The Stand" but for some reason I can't get it in Australia

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Mainly disappointment. This should have been a book I enjoyed

Engrossing

Typical Stephen King book in that it builds and builds the suspense. Very enjoyable.

needs more voices

I really liked the story, but the narration wasn't all that great. I've found that it makes it easier to listen to when the narrator does different voices for different characters and that didn't really happen with this book.

great story

this is one of my favourite Stephen King novels. but if they can't get a narrator to pronounce words correctly the novel shouldn't be put onto audio. wanted to kill myself everything the narrator said "kurtz" instead of "curtis".....

Another Stephen King classic very well read

Where does Dreamcatcher rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was very easy to listen to and had just the right amount of tension and thrill for a Stephen King classic.

What other book might you compare Dreamcatcher to, and why?

Dreamcatcher is a mix of Alien and Predator and Stand by Me and Rain man. Not sure if they're all books but if you've seen the movies you'll know what I mean. Oh, and maybe some independence day too!

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey DeMunn’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No,but will now.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. You get very caught up in this book.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended book.
