was quite hard I m still not sure if I m okay with giving it 3 stars, because it had so many good characters, parts and plot twists, so one part of me feels like giving it 5 stars But then again, at some parts, it left me feeling miserable and asking myself if I was ever going to finish it, so because of that, the other part of me think that it deserves only 2 stars So I guess I ll just have to settle and give it 3 3.3 stars But still, I don t think I ve ever wished that Goodreads had a half star system, as much as I do now Dreamcatcher is a book about alien invasion, but it s unlike any other alien invasion book Also, it is unlike any other Stephen King s book that I ve read The book started out great I actually loved the first half I loved getting to know our main characters, I loved the plot, and I loved how King introduced aliens There were even some scenes that creeped me out, and at some parts I even had to stop reading for a few seconds But then, somewhere in the middle, something happened, and the book unfortunately got worse It started dragging on and at some parts it became flat out boring Then, maybe 50 pages before the end, the pace picked up again, and it got back to being amazing I absolutely loved the way it ended, and how everything came together.When it comes to characters, just like in any other King s work, they were my favorite part of this book well, at least some of them were I loved our main four characters Henry and Jonesy especially I also loved Duddits, and even Owen But, on the other hand, there is Kurtz a character I absolutely despised And he is the main reason why I had problems with this book I think that his character was completely unnecessary I loved reading from everyone s point of view except from his And the irony was that his chapters got bigger and bigger as the book went on In my opinion, he brought nothing to the story, and was only there to make it longer If his character was removed from the story I don t think that anything important in the plot would change.In the end, even though this book made me question my sanity a few times, I m still glad that I ve read it Even though it had some bad parts, it also had so manyamazing parts so I had a dream last night where Graham and Brian and Steve and I were all back in Seattle, and it was like it was before, four friends who were different from each other but still really connected, like brothers, and we were having adventures and serious talks and stupid talks and good times and bad times and it was all just so sweet and real, like things had never changed of course things change and these are still my friends, but change is change and so Brian and Steve still aren t talking so I had a dream last night where Graham and Brian and Steve and I were all back in Seattle, and it was like it was before, four friends who were different from each other but still really connected, like brothers, and we were having adventures and serious talks and stupid talks and good times and bad times and it was all just so sweet and real, like things had never changed of course things change and these are still my friends, but change is change and so Brian and Steve still aren t talking when they should both be bonding as fathers and leaders in their fields and as men, but change happens and now they can barely be in the same room together and Graham I still love him of course, I still love all of them, but I can t even remember the last time I saw Graham these days I feel closer to Dave and to Jill, which is odd to consider because honestly back in the day they felt like satellites of the four of us oh the small little tragedies and realities of life, the changes and the sweet memories and the never going back.so there s a book called Dreamcatcher and it is about four friends and their histories together and the long times apart and their annual hunting trip four great friends who were different from each other but still really connected, like brothers four friends who grew up together four individuals who are deeply characterized like they are all people the author knows, or maybe all different pieces of the author himself, made separate or maybe both are true it is easy to see your friends as a kind of extension of yourself, different but similar, four different sides of a square that is still one basic shape, one thing.Dreamcatcher is not just about those friends but I sort of wish it had been it is Stephen King s second version of an Aliens Attack story and there is a lot to enjoy and speculate about, the telepathy and the strange forms that the aliens take and the government overreaction and spores and infections and two hilariously over the top villains King is a great writer, he can craft a solid, fast paced narrative and turn it into a great big tome without making it feel especially bloated I like a thrilling adventure filled with horror and action, sure but I really wanted to readabout those four friends and their lives together and apart when one died it felt much too soon because I totally got him and yet there was still so muchto see then when another died I felt genuinely sad and not even because of the death itself, which made narrative sense but because now there was a second story, a second life, that was all finished up in the book and that I still wanted to go on King s humanism and his skill at giving you characters who the reader can implicitly, deeply understand almost works against him in Dreamcatcher, at least for me I found myself wishing that this was a different book, one that wasn t a novel about an alien invasion but was instead all about these four friends, their histories and their futures, their annual hunting trips where they could be their true selves I wanted all of that instead of aliens.still, good book and the cover is awesome, meaningful even
