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.

    "my favorite audiobook ever"
    What made the experience of listening to Dreamcatcher the most enjoyable?

    fun story, post-accident king is the best...but Jeffrey DeMunn's narration is what makes this my favorite audiobook together. i've listened to 100s of audiobooks...and this one is the highest form of the art.


    What other book might you compare Dreamcatcher to and why?

    the colorado kid


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

    he hasn't done many books, though i really liked the other king book he did, the colorado kid, and and wild blue, an ambrose book, was great too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    nope.

    "Saw the movie first."

    Gonna keep it short and sweet. Enjoyed the book and movie. They were very alike, more so then alot of other movies/book representations. Biggest difference being the ending. To which I honestly enjoyed the movies version better.

    "Weird Journey"

    Wow. I finished this over the course of a two day road trip and I feel like this book was another trip unto itself. Crazy weird but great story. I can't believe I've avoided this book for so many years.

    "Fabulously unsettling"

    I read this book when it was first published, and thoroughly enjoyed it then. Listening to the Audible version has been fascinating, bringing it to life, revealing facets of characters, putting the entire story into crisp, frightening clarity. Of note, I watched the movie version recently, and while it may have had its redeeming qualities (special effects), I found it lacking in depth, and totally off on some of the characters. All in all, a great listen; for me, King remains one of a few fantastic storytellers.

    "Headline isn't optional like app says."

    Only King can turn something like telepathy into something that told over a land like fog.

    Story
    "Stephen King stabs at Sci Fi and kills it!"

    This is an interesting story about 5 friends from Derry, Me and the comparison to "it" ends there.
    I would've liked if he explored deeper into each one of the characters back stories. I know he gets criticized for being long winded in that way often, but I found it really helps in order to build a deeper empathy for the characters. Still the story was strong enough to hold my interest and be entertained. I just wasn't emotionally invested like I've been in so many of Stephen King's books.
    Jeffrey Demunn's narrative was excellent.

    Story
    "King always out does himself"

    the book in so many ways is as with all books different from the movie and I'm so glad its like getting to have to ending or enjoy two stories. I of coarse knew duddits wouldn't make it but it makes me cry every time in the movie and this being my first time w the book was worse I cried several times as well as laughed. King is a genius and I love all his twisted stories he must be something to be married to and have as a dad. I encourage you if u haven't seen the movie listen to the book first or if u have seen it listen anyway its fantastic.
