    Man, I really miss the Newmarket Press Shooting Script series! What amazing editions! Not only do you get the screenplay in a REAL SCREENPLAY FORMAT (and not some stupid edited for reading crap like J.K. Rowling’s published script for the Fantastic Beasts movie), but you also get all the extras! The screenplay for «Dreamcatcher» isn’t really a good script. It’s a fun read, and when you think about it being adapted from a 600 page novel, the work Goldman and Kasdan had done is quite remarkable.

It’s a fun read, and when you think about it being adapted from a 600 page novel, the work Goldman and Kasdan had done is quite remarkable. But it’s not a great screenplay, and the resulting movie isn’t really that good either. So why 5 stars? Because it’s a perfect edition, and a fantastic way to get educated in screenwriting. The forewords by King and Goldman is worth the price by themselves, but the interviews and essays that go into the filmmaking process and key scenes, elevates this book to earn all five stars to me. If you’re not interested in screenwriting or filmmaking this one isn’t for you, and you should read the novel instead. Wanna learn about adapting a novel into a screenplay? This is a must-read, for in all its flaws lies great knowledge of what works and what don’t.

    A dreamcatcher is supposed to eradicate nightmares, but this one caught something it can't stop. Stephen King's book, Dreamcatcher, is about a quartet of lifelong friends from Derry, Maine, reunite in a cabin every November for a hunting trip — only this year, everything goes terribly awry.

Stephen King's book, Dreamcatcher, is about a quartet of lifelong friends from Derry, Maine, reunite in a cabin every November for a hunting trip — only this year, everything goes terribly awry. King skillfully sketches each of the main characters: Joe ''Beaver'' Clarendon is a divorced drunk; Pete Moore is a lonely mope who traded in his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut for a career as a car salesman; Henry Devlin is a suicidal, depressed shrink; and Gary ''Jonesy'' Jones is a history professor recovering from having been struck by a car. (It's no shock that King, who wrote Dreamcatcher after his own similar accident, provides searing personal insight into Jonesy's physical and emotional pain.) This book was quite hard for me to read at first. The book has a lot of profanity, and I mean a lot. Dreamcatcher is also, like almost all Stephen King novels, over 800 pages with some unnecessary parts that are a little boring. There are also a couple very graphic and gruesome parts, and to not spoil anything, I won't give any examples. However, the book as a whole is alright though. The plot is somewhat compelling and interesting. I would recommend this book, but only to a person that likes other Stephen King novels, enjoy a gruesome alien story, and if profanity doesn't bother you.
