Fan submitted reviews of Dreamcatcher (Novel):
Posted By: Krystle - February 26th, 2013 9:05:03 pm EST

Personality-wise, these have to be my favorite characters in a S.K. book so far. The ending surprised me, although sad, I was more pleased with it than what I had predicted would happen. It was very gory, but the humor and creativity made up for it. Flatulence will never be the same.

Pretty well-written book. It took me a while to read it, but as I went along it got me entertained. The end is creative and took me by surprise. It is a very explicit book which must be read with an open mind. thanks stephen king, you gave me sleepless nights!

Nothing like a good old fashioned ailen story

brilliant novel again. the comparisons between this novel and Stephen King's others just interact with each other throughout the novel. Definately recommend this to other readers

Fantastic! My most favourite book!

My first introduction to SK and I love this book. I'd always avoided SK before as I thought I'd be scared sh*tless but this book showed me that he's not really about the scary stuff (though it's there) but about putting amazing characters in extreme situations and seeing how they get through it (or not). The characters are so compelling, I found myself drawn into the book completely. I read the whole book straight on a flight and have read it again maybe 4 or 5 times, and since then I've read almost every other SK novel. I love the early ones for the sheer imagination but the later ones (Tommyknockers, Dreamcatcher, From a Buick 8, Duma Key, Lisey's Story, Under the Dome) have such great characters and to me are almost elegaic in feel. Shame about the movie of Dreamcatcher, it could have been so much better, but don't let that put you off the book.

Very good read. I found myself as always when I read Kings works.

I just want to say that my favourite author is Stephen King. But to be clear - I dind't like the movie at all. It was a big disappointment for me. I guess that 'The Green Mile' & 'The Shawshank Redemption' will be the only good movies made of King's books. But as I said - King is the King. Pardon my English. Sorry if I made some mistakes.

This is a terrific book, once you get past the disgusting descriptions of bodily functions.

Great novel. I love the movie too, even though the ending was different.

This book was really great!!!I love it like his other fantastic books...it's full of suspense.. I like Duddits and just sad that he died :-(

Knowing that King's works are generally ruined during the adaptation to film (Dead Zone, Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption being the only real exceptions) I watched the film version of this with low expectations. Not surprisingly, they elected to cut just enough material from the book out to make the story completely incoherent. Luckily, I got a copy of the book everything fell into place and the plot made as much sense as a book about telepathy and alien invasion might be expected to.

I liked this book not only because of great descriptions but because I visite Grand Canyon and bought a couple of Indian dreamcatcher :)

I thought this book was really great but it's one of those books you need to read more then once to understand whats going on. In the movie there are bits that make the storie seem childish but reading the book doesn't.
Posted By: Chelsey - April 1st, 2010 2:34:05 pm EDT
I think that this book was very well written. King has, once again, proved to be the scariest, most creepy, thought-provoking writer of our time. Dream Catcher will be a great read for most adults. It uses real life situations and makes them supernatural. It is one of the best I've read, along with Duma Key and Cell. I recomend anybody with the slightest of a dimented mind to read these novels.

i started reading a few days ago it was gripping, i felt laughter during the duddits chapters, and so much sorrow when the alien killed "the beav" i got so attached to his character.
Posted By: GinaGina - January 29th, 2010 11:17:07 pm EST
I saw the movie, before I read the book. I have sworn that I will never do that again. For some reason if I watch the movies before reading the book I have a hard time reading the entire book, but I did finish this one. Very good book.

i like this book alot but not as much as others, i still liked the reference to IT, like the events in that book actually happened. Keep writing SK

i love love love stephen king, he is my favorite author ever, but I have to say this was my least favorite of his books. I have read every other book he has written and most of his other works, and this is definitely at the bottom. That being said, it was still readable and i would recommend it to someone who likes wierd stories!
Posted By: John Lee - October 17th, 2009 2:59:17 pm EDT
this story was very good i thought the characters where interesting. not his best work but still worth reading.
Posted By: James/Tower/Junkie - October 15th, 2009 2:39:46 am EDT
does anyone think that Jonesy's time in the tracker brothers office is similar to Susannahs time in the dogan from Dark tower?
Posted By: Mason - September 28th, 2009 1:07:28 pm EDT
well I like the book Whets up with Mr. gray
Posted By: JRM - September 16th, 2009 8:35:36 pm EDT
This book was magical. I absolutely enjoyed it/still enjoying it (I only have 50 pgs to go), but I've had a few issues with it, my biggest being that I didn't like the direction the book took. I'm all for a book about extraterrestrials, but when much of that book is played out in the minds of the characters, it takes away much of the thrills. I also found it harder and harder to believe as it progressed. The characters are what made me love the book, though; they're colorful, alive, and there's such a chemistry there that it's hard to describe. Duddits is one of the most likeable characters ever created. Everytime he's in a scene I can't help but smile. An good book, but I'd recommend it with caution.

SSDD! ... This is one of King's that I'm not so sure of my opinion... Extraterrestrial invasion feels so cliche by now... But King still brings plenty of fresh ideas and for that I praise him. I must say though all the references to sci-fi movies seriously were beginning to annoy me... What I love about this book though is there is no other book out there pertaining to alien invasions that is so outlandish and psychological. The parts with the Dreamcatcher were simply amazing.... And the climax was quite good. Mr. Grey is also a very nicely done character. His gradual process of gaining human emotion is simply wonderfully done. And his escapades in Jonesy in search of bacon lead to some humorous and unforgettable moments. I also must add finally that every integral character is excellently portrayed. Over time you feel as if they are your own friends! Good book, quite entertaining... But definitely not King's best.

nice book... Mr. King will never fail you, he abuses his imagination... this novel is a brain travel... a telepathic thriller.
Posted By: Anonymous - April 24th, 2009 1:25:43 am EDT
This is the first Stephen King book I have read so far, with the exception of Carrie. I loved this one, and if this is only considered to be average, I can't wait to read his other works.
Posted By: F@$o0o!_ { SSDD } - April 18th, 2009 9:57:54 am EDT
I loved it, everything about it. SSDD, Duddits, the ongoing conflict between Mr Gray and Jonesy... One of my favourite novels
Posted By: Jasonbobdude - March 5th, 2009 8:56:07 pm EST
It took me a while to really get into this book, and I don't think it's SK's best. Still, towards the end I really enjoyed it. The connections to IT were pretty good too, so if you enjoyed that book, you might want to read Dreamcatcher.

ok, ive never read the book, but ive seen the movie. I WANT THIS BOOK!!!!
Posted By: You Know Me, Right? - February 26th, 2009 5:57:36 pm EST
i really loved this book, and I think Mr.King had a good thing going when he wrote it....Good Job Mr.King!
Posted By: Eriks - February 4th, 2009 4:04:22 pm EST
hello, everyone! I've read a lot of SK, but in my opinion the Dreamcatcher is average. Part of Duddits is great, but the aliens trip inside the Jonesy to pollute the waterjar and coronel Kurtz - well, I think not very good. But, of course, don't wannabe to critical - SK is really a great writer.
Posted By: Contstant Reader - January 21st, 2009 11:46:47 am EST
I loved this book! After reading it, Shitweasel became my favorite word. I would have liked the movie better is they had used that word more tham once. Thanks again!

I loved this book. My first Stephen King book was IT and I didnt think it could get any better than that but Dreamcatcher really had me hooked. I loved the conversations between Mr Gray and Jonesy. I want a Duddits!!!
Posted By: Anonymous - December 9th, 2008 11:27:33 pm EST
this is the first SK book i've read and it was soooo good!!!I loved it sooo much! It always made me smile when i came to the parts about Duddits and how they all loved him so much.i think it was very touching and a REALLY GOOD book!! I've seen some of his (SK) movies when i was young but i never reall understood them or knew that they were books(cuz i was young) then i stumbled on to this one and immediatly fell in love with SK's books. My fav author ever!!

This is my all- time favorite novel. I could hardly put it down. Also, the morals questioned in it... genius.

I'm sorry...I enjoy a good Stephen King book just like the rest of you..but this book just cracked me up!!All the burping and farting..I felt like Mr. King was revisiting his teenage sense of humor on this one!! THEN..came the butt monster???? I truly call this the butt monster book! My 4 kids think I'm crazy..(Okay maybe I am a little!) I have had the book for years laying around and my 14yr old wants to read it. I laughed and said...you want to read the butt monster book?? Go ahead!! I had to see the movie!!! I just needed to know how the monster was going to look!!! Anyway Good story in the end..Get it...in the end!!!!

Amazing. It normally takes me awhile to read books, but i couldnt put this one down.
Posted By: Anonymous - August 1st, 2008 12:12:22 am EDT
This is one of King's best novels. Dreamcatcher has a little something for everyone, aliens, psychic powers, and longtime friends.
Posted By: Rjt65 - July 24th, 2008 5:20:03 pm EDT
Me and my daughters have always had a liking to the nice dreamcatchers we would see made by people in local fairs, flea markets etc. They look nice and are Indian culture product of warding off bad dreams and letting the good ones filter through.. This is another strong story by Mr King that everyone who reads will pull for a unique hero. An excellent book.
