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.

    "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.

    "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

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

    "Listen up"

    This is one of my favourite SK books. 4 friends do a brave, kind deed, defending a intellectually disabled boy being bullied. They become a tight group, complete with their own sayings and shared experiences. They grow up and it appears some bad s**t was coming their way and they need to deal with it. There's no religion in this one, some magic but not to the extent it can go in a SK novel. It's about a group of friends. It's about growing up together. It's about the possible end of the world. It's not too slow, no punches are pulled. The disabled guy is enabling and able - a nice change to many books if they even appear at all. Listen to it!

    "A King Classic"

    No other author seems capable of merging horror, sci-fi and tales of ordinary folk as masterfully as Stephen King. If you have seen the film but not read the book (or listened to it) then I recomend that you do so today. You will not be dissapointed.

    "The world is in grave peril ..."

    A tricky plot based around schoolboy friends who are the only ones who can save humankind from an alien invasion. Yet another un put downable from the master.

    Story
    "Stephen's Sickening, Sentimental, Sci-fi Schlock"
    What made the experience of listening to Dreamcatcher the most enjoyable?

    Once you get over how many words are devoted to vivid descriptions of bottoms and foul smells coming out of them, then you've got an interesting and entertaining story about aliens, psychic powers, car chases and the kind of characters that you would expect from a Stephen King story. The descriptions of what the aliens are (or, at least, what the characters think they are) and the escalation of events from "trip to a cabin" to "an alien virus could destroy the world" were both great, even if the plot does run out of the steam by the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Colonel Kurtz. He was too ridiculously evil to hate and I thought that he had all the best dialogue.


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

    I knew him as an actor in a couple of different things and he was a great narrator. He managed to handle some pretty ludicrous text and kept the story flowing really, really well. He also gave every character an identifiable voice, but didn't overdo any of the accents (which was a very good thing when it came to all of Duddits' dialogue).


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

    Yes, I'll admit that most of the parts with Duddits tugged at my heartstrings. A bit. A tiny bit. I also laughed far too much at how THE POWER OF BACON saves the day at one point.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed by how predictable the last couple of chapters were. Once it got to a certain point in the story I guessed pretty much exactly what was going to happen and then it was just a matter of listening to the end (although, there was some interesting dialogue in the epilogue).

    "Struggled at times with this read"

    This started off a very exciting read and largely remained so. However I did struggle at times to keep in with the whole concept of what was happening - which may say more about me than the book perhaps!! It was chilling and gruesome as well as heartwarming and a show of true friendship. If you like something a little different with the sci-fi element then this is for you.

    "brilliant king as always"

    loved it as with all stephen kings ive listened to but this one lost me at times, it jumped forward and back a few times, which when listening with children in the background can get confusing. but on a whole a fantastic story of friendship and the connection a special group of people can have, also a creative different spin on 'other life forms'.

    Completely engulfing. . . An unequivocal master with the overwhelming ability to take your mind through a smooth roller coaster of a pickle of genres. . . Narrated beautifully, encapsulating the inner essence and personality of every character with deep intensity and gentle purity.
