Format: Kindle Edition
Despite its length, Stephen King delivers a stellar book about lifelong friends facing aliens lurking in the woods of Maine. In the background, is the military trying to stop an alien lifeforce from taking over the world . Despite its Hollywood B-movie overtones, this book delves deep into friendship and the power of the mind. Much better than the movie adaptation. A truly scary modernized revision of the alien invasion scenario. King is great as usual!

This book came out after King's accident and he wrote it by hand, which goes to show his dedication since the book is over 800 pages. I really did enjoy this book, it's pretty fast paced, especially in the begining. Maybe towards the middle it slows a little, but not enough to take away from the books merit. The story is about 4 friends who grew up together (they're from King's uber creepy town Derry) and once helped an autistic boy from bullies back in their childhood. This event forever changed their lives and from on they had psychic abilities. When the 4 are on their annual hunting trip all hell breaks loose when aliens arrive and they have to deal with both them and the government trying to stop them. Very creepy and descriptive, one of the better sci-fi books I've read, especially about the "byrus" an organic alien material that gets on everything and continues to grow. This book is a little better than King's earlier attempt at a UFO/alien story (Tommyknockers) and is much faster. I would highly suggest you read this, even if you're not a King fan but more of a sci-fi fan, you won't be disapointed.

Stephen King's Dreamcatcher is a novel about friendship, and survival. Once upon a time, in the small town of Derry, four brave young boys - Beaver, Henry, Pete, and Jonesy - rescued a mentally ill child from bullies; unaware that their actions would change their lives forever. Now twenty- five years after saving the boy, the friends reconnect in a cabin in Maine for their annual hunting trip.
All is well until a stranger enters their cabin claiming that he has been lost in the woods for days. Eventually, the stranger becomes extremely ill and dies having bled to death in the bathroom. To Beaver and Jonesy's surprise, they discover a weasel -like creature emerging from the back of the dead stranger.
After much struggle, Jonesy manages to escape from the creature alive while Beaver is killed by it. Jonesy is then shocked to see another mysterious creature that identifies himself as Mr. Gray. At this point, Mr. Gray transforms himself into red dust which Jonesy inhales. By doing so, Mr. Gray is able to take control of Jonesy's body in which he is able to carry out his mission.
Meanwhile, Commander Kurtz and his team are set up in the woods and have been destroying the unidentified creatures that have crashed on earth, unaware that one has survived.
It is now up to Jonesy, Henry, and Pete to stop Mr. Gray from achieving his goal- destroying all of humanity. The friends discover that survival is hidden in their past and in the dreamcatcher, which has come to represent their bond of friendship.
While I enjoyed this book very much, there were parts where it got confusing or when one event in the book carried on for too long. For example, the chase between Jonesy/ Mr. Gray, Henry, and Kurtz, lasted more than six chapters.

The setup for "Dreamcatcher" is sooooooo perfect. Four old friends from Derry (yeah, THAT place again) get together for their annual hunting trip. They're all going through several mid-life crises but looking forward to bagging a couple of bucks. And then they meet this crazy old man who's supposedly been lost in the woods. They take him in, make him feel comfy, get him a bite to eat. And then he leans over and...
PPBBT!
Let's out a HUGE fart. A real stinker. I couldn't STOP LAUGHING from this point on. And the FARTS OF DOOM are a recurring occurence throughout the story. I never knew King was so adept at toilet humor.
Then I went back and read "The Shining" and it still scared the crap out of me. Oh Stephen, you've lost your touch.

I am a very big fan of Stephen king's novels and can honestly say that this book just isn't hapenning. The book starts very interesting but as you keep reading it gets more and more boring. If you are thinking of buying this book, you will be better off buying one of his other novels.

25 years after saving Duddits- a child with Down's Syndrome- from bullies, four friends, Beaver, Henry, Jonesy, and Pete go up to Maine for their annual hunting trip. While up there they see strange things happening, and witness, for the first time, creatures beyond their imagination. After they put all the clues together, they find out that they are taking part in an alien invasion. These aliens were not friendly. They came to Earth to contaminate our water supply with a disease called Byrus. Two friends die during the book- Pete and Beaver. The other two friends- Jonesy and Henry- save the day along with the U.S. Army and Navy. At the end of the book they found out why they were successful in the defeat of the aliens, because of their "Dreamcatcher," Duddits.
