Publisher Description

From master storyteller Stephen King comes his classic #1 New York Times bestseller about four friends who encounter evil in the Maine woods.

Twenty-five years ago, in their haunted hometown of Derry, Maine, four boys bravely stood together and saved a mentally challenged child from vicious local bullies. It was something that fundamentally changed them, in ways they could never begin to understand. These lifelong friends—now with separate lives and separate problems—make it a point to reunite every year for a hunting trip deep in the snowy Maine woods. This time, though, chaos erupts when a stranger suddenly stumbles into their camp, freezing, deliriously mumbling about lights in the sky. And all too quickly, the four companions are plunged into a horrifying struggle for survival with an otherworldly threat and the forces that oppose it...where their only chance of survival is locked into their shared past—and the extraordinary element that bonds them all...

Not Bad

I generally dislike Stephen King's writing, on more than one occasion I disliked his books so much I'd just put it down without finishing it, but Dreamcatcher is actually one of my favorite books. The characters are actually really interesting and the story isn't that badly written.

I liked the movie and the book

I’m often surprised that many people consider this one of Stephen King’s worst novels. Seriously?? I watched the movie adaptation of this book and it instantly became a favorite horror movie! Even though the book is pretty thick, I expected to enjoy it enough to read it fairly quickly... and it didn’t disappoint! Exciting, terrifying reading that moves at a slightly faster pace than readers would ordinarily expect from King! I wouldn’t blame anyone who wonders why I am a fan of Stephen King when I don’t usually like to read such huge books. This book explains why. I, of course, read it as a print book and, even at 879 pages, it’s a thrilling, sweet, sad, suspenseful story that, at the same time, is also a horrifying enough alien invasion tale to satisfy millions of fans of sci-fi horror! Well done, King!!!

Great story

One of my favorites of his, a stand alone book where so many of his stories weave together. Very different from the movie
