Not only that but what happened to it on the shelf... here today gone... the hard back was here and gone. I have a copy on a 20 CD set read byJeffrey De Munn and found out number 8 has a one and a half inch crack. I cant listen to the rest now... of course Simon and Schuster says they are out... last made in 2003... sorry but no have... now what do I do... it was sold at Schulers in Michigan and they say... to bad because it was a xmas gift. I have to find disc 8... please anyone! help me:down:
Not only was this book hysterically funny (the s***weasels!?!) but it was so incredibly good! Im with you! This is one of the great SK books in my humble opinion! The whole raw bacon eating scene had me laughing out loud! Loved the book!
I'm always in awe of the fact that he wrote it longhand with a fountain pen and our own Ms Mod transcribed it.
Long days and pleasant nights
I love this book. It called back to what I love most about SK, the way he writes about childhood and of the bonds we make in it. I made it a point to not research the book or even read the book jacket, and started reading it. And when the alien invasion hit I was taken completely off guard in a good way.
wow! did not know that! fountain pen?
Dreamcatcher is in my top 5 list. Anything that deals with aliens I love, so I thoroughly enjoyed the Gray/Jonesy story. And I still use the phrase all the time with my husband when he asks how my day went: Same xxxx, different day. SSDD. Classic King - always introducing these phrases that I can't get out of my head. After reading all 7 Dark Tower books in a 3 month period, I was literally speaking the Stephen King language. Still am, albeit no one else arounds me really gets it. I don't think Dreamcatcher gets the love it deserves, but I'm not sure why except that there are some gross parts to it, and it's complex.
I guess it just depends on the person. I couldn't even make it through Lisey's Story and I really didn't like from a buick 8. But people on this site seem to love both. Where as I think Dreamcatcher and Insomina are great books and people on here list them as his worst.
"Dreamcatcher", like a fine moss or fungi-grew on me...I've read it several times now-and finally truly enjoy it-but it wasn't reader lust at first glance though...
I think I tried way too hard to like Dreamcatcher. When I finished it I kept thinking I liked it (I think I even mentioned I liked it on this site), but once I set it down and let it sink in, I realized I was just fooling myself. It has its moments, but it was so unbelievably silly.
