Really struggling with this one

    This is my first time reading Dreamcatcher and boy... it pains me to say it but I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish it. I've taken a break and gone back to it twice and I'm still only half way through. That's a bad sign on its own - when I'm reading something I love I absolutely devour it, but this I'm finding really slow and plodding and I really don't care about any of the characters. Anyone care to defend it? Does it get better?

    Dreamcatcher is a multilayered novel. Not every book is meant for every reader, but I would suggest continuing. The plot does accelerate and you might be surprised by the ending. There is a lot of King within this novel. A lot happens within the pages, take your time and let it sink in.

    do1you9love? Happy to be here!

    I'll be honest. This is not one of my favorites and the sh!t weasels really turned me off. I did keep reading and, like Spideyman said, there are things buried under that layer of sh!t (friendship, for instance), that are worth it, if you can make it through. Good luck!

    ....it does work it's way out of the "doldrums"......and it does take some more rumination than his more straight forward action/suspense/insert favorite adjective here novels.....

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    In my bottom 5 of all Mr. King's books. I've struggled through it two (maybe three) times, and that's it for me. Maybe some day I'll like it, but that day is not today.
