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.

Captures the mind and heart.

Mr. King brought this story from imagination to artful reality. The narration is wonderful...my ears were chaffed by the end of the story!

King Fans Will Love Dreamcatcher

This book follows the typical King strategy. He tells an incredible story in series of small steps, and before you know it you are believing something that a few hours earlier would have been laughable. I think it is the perfection of this technique that has made him one of my favorite contemporary authors.

The audio production is very good, but without "taking over" the story. I can't wait to see the movie, and hope that King had enough involvement in the film to maintain the integrity of his story.

If you like to sit back and be carried along on a bizarre adventure, don't wait any longer, get this audio.
