Not one of his best, by any means…but an ok book. I think my difference from the majority here is two-fold: Granted, the writing in Tommyknockers is much edgier and less polished than I remember his later works being, which could have turned some readers off. I was unaware until recently that this book had gotten such widely varying reviews and that so many people were disappointed by it. They are easily my two favorite characters. Now, this sounds great, and truly would be, if the novel didn’t go all around the place.

The way that people in town are suddenly feeling a little more connected with one another, undergoing bizarre changes, coming tommyknockerz with brilliant and terrifying new technology.

The Tommyknockers

I want to go out; don’t know if I can, ’cause I’m so afraid of the Tommyknocker man. But that’s pretty messy, isn’t it? Please allow me to preface this review.

I feel terrible for giving this book such a low rating but I genuinely feel like I suffered through a large portion of it. The town of Derry exists here along with a direct reference to IT as well as other books, and that seems harmless enough at first. After going on an epic bender Gardner visits Bobbi and finds that she has worked herself ragged and lost several teeth while digging up the ship.

Tommyknocoers first time I read it, which was about 25 years ago, I thought the book was pretty good but didn’t like the ending.

I had never lobro my life felt so ripped off about an ending in a book. The beginning was good, entertaining, even hilarious at parts.


Haven, Maine United States. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged. Mar 20, Mark Lawrence rated it really liked it. The only reason I decided to go with The Tommyknockers is because it won the SK group read for September, and I’d never participated in a group read, and wanted to be a part of it.

I wanna go out, don’t know if I can ‘cuz I’m so afraid of the tommyknocker man. The cosmic terror is enjoyably vague, yet the nature and logic of its machinations contains some truly eerie implications.

And maybe, this one just wasn’t for me. King novels don’t usually affect me but I dreamed about this one twice while I was reading it. I would argue that this story is much more about the slow build-up of suspense. He read half of it during a week long stint in the brig while in the navy, then rescued the book from destruction while he was throwing the ship’s trash in the ocean a week later.

The Tommyknockers

King attempts to bring together everything here, but since he introduced so many different characters and random sub plots in the middle part of the book, it was like he was really grasping at straws trying to figure out how the hell to incorporate it all together.

Or so I thought. The townspeople are being welded into one organic, homicidal, and fearsomely brilliant entity in thrall to the Tommyknockers, who piloted the alien ship. I was a new Stephen King fan and after picking up the first book of his I ever read, I had to grab another and another and another. Tlmmyknockers a surprisingly poignant novel about aging, addiction and change that comes to us all with time. View all 3 comments.

After she tampers with it sufficiently, the whole town gradually begins changing into aliens. From the point that Gard walks into the Tommyknocker shed to the last page was simply outstanding, and I experienced so many feelings for this character nicknamed Gard. Stephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. The book had a slow burn creepy feeling as you flip through the pages… I was always anticipating something to pounce on the characters, it had a successful build up that paid in the end.


Additionally, I love intricate stories with a plethora of characters, and this is no exception If King went back with a re-do he’d likely be able to boost this into one of his greater novels.

Plus, Stephen King just plain sucks at writing about aliens. Usually, I tell tommyknckers to read King’s books in order, but if you plan on reading Under the Domeyou might want to leave The Tommyknockers for after you finish it. All the cool references at the tail-end of the book are for books King hadn’t yet written. Awe shucks, such a missed opportunity by King here.

As a fan who has read every one of Kings books, I hereby proclaim that The Tommyknockers is now, officially, my least favorite book by Stephen King. For other uses, see Tommyknocker. The change that the town of Haven undergoes, the dramatic conclusion and the beautiful epilogue are the shining points of this novel and deserve praise. Apr 09, Tom Swift rated it liked it. Here the book tries to return to it’s first-third roots, but by now lobro far too late. Not one owner of a name is anything less than a real flesh-and-blood person.

But when I started tommyknockerz the book, I thought everyone must have been off their Tommyknocker-rocker! That novel is referenced here more than any other.
