To me Dreamcatcher is just sorta meh. I liked the characters ok and parts of the book dealing with their friendship have a bit of the vintage King feel, but mostly it struck me as kind of dull. I just don't think aliens are King's strong point.
Have you reread it?

Yes, I've reread it and it didn't improve for me the second time. It was pretty much the same with The Tommyknockers. I disliked it when it first came out and reread it a few years ago and it still didn't grab me. I just don't like King's aliens.

I still haven't been able to finish this one.....every time I pick it up, something happens to take my attention away.

Dear @Neil W ...... if you use spoilers, it is much appreciated. Use them like this
[spoil3r] [/spoil3r] use the letter e instead of 3
:)
Apologies. I has been so long since I read some of this stuff that I completely forget others may not have read it yet. Hopefully it wasn't too horrific a spoiler before Ms Mod got her mitts on it and did it for me.

No worries. I usually don't remember spoilers very well, anyway.
I've still not been able to get farther than a couple of chapters in this one. I think it's cursed.....
