hm... I haven't read Dreamcatcher. I'm thinking about it though. I've only read one Stephen King book before, can you believe it? I read Firestarter and I really liked it. I've seen a dozen of the movies based on his books but that doesn't really count
Hi, I'm pretty new to this board and it has taken me a while to get to the 'book' section. (Got hung up in the Stargate pages !)
I am just about half way thru Dreamcatcher right now. To be honest I'm not entirely sure if I like it. I love SK, and am a real anorak when it comes to his books and I think that this one is very different. I know he has dealt with ET's b4, as in Tommyknockers, but at this point in the book, where the only one really left alive is Henry - Jonesy now being 'inhabited' by Mr Gray, i dunno.
I guess I'll keep on with it and see what happens in the end !
BTW, have you noticed that the accident Jonesy has is pretty much exactly what happened to SK a couple of years ago !
They always say you should write what you know, and he is very good at it !
For me, my all time fave SK book - The Stand - no hesitation, in its original 1970s format.
This is my fav Stephen King book out of the few that I've read. there were many twists and turns in the story that threw me and I liked that. I loved all the characters and especially their relationship with Duddits (he was a sweety )
I am new here, and a very devoted SK fan. I read Dreamcatcher about two years ago, right before the movie came out. I rather enjoyed it, I liked some of the ideas in it, especially about the 'memory storage'. I also saw the flick, and liked the stuff that kept to the book, but was irritated when it digressed.
