Bookreview: Stephen King

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to review one of Stephen King's thrillers.
Since I'm Dutch, the title of the book is in Dutch as well but it's translated to "Dreamcatcher". In this book we follow Sam. The story starts off when he has to do a presentation because another one of his collegues couldn't do it. Sam doesn't know how to do presentations or speeches so he asks his secretary Naomi for advice. She tells him to get some books and get tips from there. So he does.


The only problem is that you have to return the books in time, or else the "book police" will come after you and do horrible things! Only, Sam forgets about the books. Next thing he knows, he's lost them!
In his search for the books he meets Dirty Dave, who's responsable for the missing books and the posters of the book police in the scary library. He also meets a whole new side of Naomi. And what's up with the library? Why does it keep on changing? Why does the book police look so familiar to him? Why does he hate licorice but knows exactly what it smells and tastes like? And then there's this girl.... Ardelia!
Sam is in a parellell, terrifying world where nothing is what it seems.

I absolutely loved this book. It was scary, yes, but that's why Stephen King is the thriller King. Luckely it wasn't so scary that I couldn't read it, which has happened with one of his books, it just gave me nightmares! Haha!
I also love how unexpected things happen in this book and how there's played with flashbacks and flashforwards. Really great, loved this story! It takes a true genious to come up with something like this!

Thanks for reading!
