Publisher's Summary

"Stephen King never stops giving us his all" (Chicago Tribune) in this number-one national best seller about the idyllic small town of Haven, Maine, and its encounter with a deadly evil out for a diabolical invasion of body, soul - and mind.

Writer Bobbi Anderson becomes obsessed with digging up something she's found buried in the woods near her home. With the help of her friend, Jim Gardener, she uncovers an alien spaceship. Though exposure to the Tommyknockers, who piloted the alien ship, has harmful effects on residents' health, the people of Haven develop a talent for creating innovative devices under their increasingly malignant influence.

In this riveting, nightmarish story, Stephen King has given us a "brilliant, riveting, marvelous" (The Boston Globe) novel. "You will not be able to put this down" (Los Angeles Times Book Review). And the next time someone raps at your door, you may want to keep the chain on. It just might be the Tommyknocker Man.

Did they listen to it before publishing?!?

The overall book is good,and the narrator did his job very well. It's just the editing of the audio book is driving me crazy, they cut words short and even a few words out of the end of every chapter 😒

spooky and enthralling

The narrator does a great job with this Stephen King signature. Tommyknockers knocking on your door... I love how King fills the space between the book covers with a story about 1 person and the situations they face. There are very few characters you get to know but don't care, it's all about the one, unlike any other. Edward Herrmann, I hope you sought some psychiatric help after embodying Gard for this book. Great all around, excellent to listen to.

Not Stephen Kings best

Edward Hermann's narration made this worth listening to. Had this been a book likely I wouldn't have finished. Some parts are brilliant; others left me wondering where is this going? I like Kings oldest novels best (e.g. The Stand, The Dead Zone) but also love 11.23.63 which also great for comparison.

Incredible and interminable.

This book haunts as much as any book I've ever read. Originally I read it shortly after it was released and I have never forgotten disturbing sections of it, particularly the chilling rhyme about Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers (knocking at my door.) This time, through, it felt like an eerie old friend, sitting in partial darkness, only revealing himself a part at a time, as the sun rose. Although it seems to go on forever, there is not a single unnecessary word. King has a mystic ability to weave phenomenally complex stories into a tome you want to put on your shelf and rest easy, knowing it is there whenever you need it. Typically, King has taken innocuous objects or people and slowly colored them with increasingly dark tones and colors. After reading "It," can you ever look at a clown the same way? It is clearly time for me to reconnect with this man's work - before it reconnects with me.

Top notch!

One of my all-time favorite Stephen King novels from many years ago. It was great to listen to after reading it several times in the past. Hermann did a magnificent narration.

For Alien Believers and Sci-Fi Fans

Great story and long, for those who listen at work or for long periods of time. It has all the timeless parts of an alien story but is also unlike the others. A unique story indeed, well played King.

simply terrible

This is the worst book I've ever tried to endure, by any author. And I love Stephen King's work.I couldn't even finish it.

Drawn out, but good

I expected it to be scarier, but the story was very interesting. Parts of the story were very drawn out. King described the background of everything imaginable and every single charecter in the story, but really no background on the aliens. It was a lot of unnecessary stuff, but I enjoyed it.
