4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamcatcher 3 July 2002
Format:Paperback
For those of you new to Stephen King, don't judge a book by the cover titles of films made for them. With the notable exceptions of The Shawshank Redemption, Stand by Me and a few others most of King's numerous short stories, books and novellas haven't translated well to celluloid. That said, Dreamcatcher is an excellent way to introduce new readers to Stephen King and for past fans of his work it is an opportunity to reacquaint and immerse in writing typical of his style.
However, although Dreamcatcher has many key elements of the horror genre, it is (at least partially) a science fiction book. Not so much little green men, instead grey androgynous aliens with ESP and plots to take over the world. Less Disney and more X-Files.
With dark intent the book centres around five childhood friends all linked by their own thought processes and by a dreamcatcher; a native American charm to ward off evil and catch nightmares. To survive they must battle alien viruses, mutated weasels and military officials with murderous agendas, while in a race against time to save the planet. Some will live and others won't but in Dreamcatcher King rouses sympathy, apathy, love or hatred for all his characters; even fleeting personalities who warrant only a page but contribute to the story by showing depth to the main characters or by tying up loose ends.
An enjoyable read all around, I can thoroughly recommend Dreamcatcher. It should delight new readers and welcome home old friends. If you want a book with a bit of a bite, Dreamcatcher has very sharp teeth!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must own, modern King novel 10 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I recieved the book Dreamcatcher as a present from a relative. I am a big fan of Stephen King books and films and this is one of the best books that I have read by King. It had oftern been critisised for being too slow halfway, but I completly disagree. Dreamcatcher is a book of horror,friendship,power,memories, and above all,briliance of the mind. Another science-fiction-horror book by King is 'The Tommyknockers',which I have also read. The Tommyknockers was another excellant King book, but I still prefered Dreamcatcher. Another point about Dreamcatcher is how fast-going it is! Dreamcatcher picks up at a giant's pace and keeps going throughout the novel (no matter what anyone says about it.) I can guarentee any science-fiction-horror-Stephen King fan that if they read this they are in for a spine-chilling and dramatic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars S.S.D. Book!!! 24 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
A Stephen King novel is always an eagerly awaited event in my life. He has been my book companion since the age of 14. Salems Lot gave me insominia (the thought of my school pals scratching at the window still freaks me out) and Pet Sematary gave a spooky perspective of the common moggy!! At the age of 30 does King still scare the pants of me?
With his latest book the Jury is still out. After the first Chapter you know you are reading the Great mans work - he has the talent to tell a 400 page story in 600 instead - and this is by know means a criticism. He delves into the minds of the characters in such a unique way that each come alive in the readers mind and you really kick into how disfunctional most of them really are -- real anti-heros.
This story covers the well worn track of the UFO genre and takes on the old cover-up theories of the X-Files etc etc - He has taken us on this path before with the Tommyknockers but I feel that this novel is more horror than sci-fi (but lets try and keep the review label free!) Stephen fair spits the narrative out in this book and you can relate the story very well with his accident and subsequent spell in hospital. With many of his classics we go back to the Characters childhood and many of the events are linked - a welcome return to Derry and Pennywise also appeal to the King stalwart.
Is this book good ? We lets say I enjoyed it, it was back to the 'old style' in parts and the length was more like the reader expects from him. There was an heartfelt tone about it and certainly up there with is other stuff.
Not for the first time reader of King however, I would recommend his earlier work - 'salems Lot, The Shining or Pet Sematary - but make no bones about it this is worthy of the KING and long may it continue...

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping It Real 15 Dec 2002
Format:Paperback
This is the book Stephen King wrote the first copy using a pen. But whether using a pen or a word processor only one person can write a story like this. From the first page it has you captivated, then you get the momentum going, you say to yourself...'I'll read one more page' but by the time you get that page finished you have to read more. The pace is quick the plot is mesmerising and to be honest I'd put it among his best. In true King style he developes the characters in such away you relate with them, you almost wish you had friends like them. And his pure narrative force takes you on a ride you'll never forget. Whether you're a King fan or not I recomment this book to anyone. You won't be disappointed. Trust me. Enjoy your reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made a Stephen King fan of me 25 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback
This is the best fiction book I have ever read.

I have never ever cared about a character in any book or film as much as I cared about Duddits. The friendship between the group is the backbone of the story and it makes for a highly emotive plot and some awesome scenes.

The story seemed to go a little wayward in the middle but the last couple of hundred pages are fantastic and full of exciting moments. As with Kings other work you truly become involved with the characters and feel that you know them yourself.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
