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.

Great Alien Story

Stephen King artfully beckons you into the lives of four boyhood friends destined for a three way collision with an extra terestrial inteligence and a government cover-up headed by a cruel and vengeful subversive. An interstellar massacre of aliens begging earth for help, a galactic plague the aliens may carry, and a man with a dual personality and maniacle ambitions are all connected in a spiritual network of intrigue transending time and space and centering around a young retarded boy with a special gift. This story is innovative, facinating, and connects the dots between all the modern E.T. mythology. A must read for the die-hard sci-fi fan.

Makes the commute fly by

Like a previous reviewer, this was my introduction to Steven King.

I've long considered myself king of the cynics... especially concerning anything metaphysical, enchanted, or ghostly. I've avoided Steven King books for years. If you are of the same state of mind, don't be put off by this book. It's a true gift for a story-teller to be able to create a tale with "regular guys" and have you pulled along, accepting the unbelievable things that are happening to them.

My only complaint would be the rapid "conclusion" of the book. After listening to almost 20 hours of a book, it was disappointing to have the loose ends tied together in one brief chapter. From reading other reviews of Steven King, I understand that this might be typical: really strong for the first three-quarters, and then kind of trails off.

I think that the stronget compliment that I can give an author is to say that I've purchased more books since. I'm now listening to "Bag of Bones"... and am enjoying it every bit as much.
