BLURB FROM THE COVER
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.

One of the outsiders is as yet alive and has hitched a ride inside the body of a man whose clairvoyant forces are entirely stunning. Goodness better believe it, and the salvation of the world rests in the possession of a youngster with Down’s Syndrome. Stephen King – Dreamcatcher Audiobook .
Features: Large lumps of Dreamcatcher are set in Derry, Maine, a standard favorite spot for King. Ruler’s epic, IT is referenced. I love the little connections King has between such a large number of his books. Duddits was my preferred character. Fiction infrequently has characters that have Down’s Syndrome. Lord worked admirably of depicting this character without mock compassion. Duddits could effectively have been the most exceedingly awful sort of cartoon. Kurtz was the man responsible for the military activity and was a perilous neurotic. Another splendid character. Lord is extraordinary at making characters. Like all King’s fiction, the incredible stuff is the characters he makes and the connections between them. The kinship between Jonesy, Henry, Pete and Beaver helped me to remember IT. Outsider attack books are ten a penny. Dreamcatcher would have been simply one more one notwithstanding King’s characterisation and the fellowship between the four companions and Duddits. The scene where Rick, the man Jonesy and Beaver offer safe house to is slaughtered by the outsider inside him and Beaver’s ensuing passing is my preferred scene.
LOWLIGHTS: I thought it was pretty crap that Pete and Beaver were executed so right off the bat in the novel. I’d have wanted to see them all spare the world with Duddits. I really shed a few tears when Duddits kicked the bucket. I wish King had allowed him to live.
THE OPENING LINE
Jonesy almost shot the guy when he came out of the woods…
This is just the subsequent time I’ve perused Dreamcatcher. It’s a great novel however not one of my top picks.
Dreamcatcher was adjusted for the screen in 2003 featuring Morgan Freeman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamcatcher_(film). The consummation of the film is totally not quite the same as the novel and not generally excellent. The best thing in the film is Morgan Freeman. The film generally speaking is exceptionally frail. Lord’s adjustments will in general be.
