And I’ve thought about it a lot lately and said to myself, “There’s really a good book in here, underneath all the sort of spurious energy that cocaine provides, and I ought to go back. You got that right, Uncle Stevie. Bobbi Anderson is a writer livin I mean, The Tommyknockers is tommyknockeds awful book. Bobbi Anderson is a writer living outside a small Maine town who trips over a hunk of metal sticking out of the ground while walking in the woods with her dog.
After going on an epic bender Gardner visits Tommynockers and finds that she has worked herself ragged and lost several teeth while digging up the ship.
The Tommyknockers by Stephen King
Bobbi convinces Gardner that they need to excavate the ship themselves, and he agrees to help. The King quote I led with really sums up this book.
In fact, it almost hommyknockers at times like he was starting different novels. One has a beloved civic leader coming to suspect that there is something very wrong happening and doing her best to hold out from it. Another has a reporter starting to unravel the mystery of what happens in Haven, but since all he is doing is uncovering what we already know his whole thread is pretty much useless anyhow so learning all about his relationship with his passive aggressive mother is especially pointless.
King also has problems in dealing with things logically from a plot standpoint. He prefers vague supernatural threats that he can routinely increase or reduce the powers of as needed, but when he has to put physical rules to them things fly apart. Which is true, but it gets messy when it comes exactly which thing is doing what, and King practically broke tommyknocckers back trying to draw parallels to the TK ship and nuclear reactors so that theme is clear.
Tommyknockeers just isn’t consistent at all. Yet at the moment when they reach the hatch both of them are down in the hole at the same time with no tommyknovkers else around. 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.
However, the end of this one would literally be the biggest story in human history. Yeah, yeah, I know. The Dark Tower has many ligro, blah, blah, blah. You can believe that if you want, but it increasingly feels to me that the references aren’t tommyknoc,ers much clever tommykhockers to reader as they are lazy tricks that undermine the story King is trying to tell at the moment.
Plus, Stephen King just plain sucks at writing about aliens. The Stand is a prime example of this. It’s like his alien stories are trying tommyknlckers be both E.
For example, we get a long conversation when Bobbi Who is part-Tommyknocker at this point. So that means that an alien influenced western writer and a drunken poet who shot his own wife are supposed to be the ones we trust to deal with the discovery of aliens? And yeah, I get that this is a con job to get Gardner to help dig up the ship, but that thread of thinking that the Feds would somehow be even worse than murderous aliens runs through this and Dreamcatcher in defiance of internal plot logic.
I mean, do we really believe that some idiot would be so distrustful of government agencies and science as well as have such a strong belief in crazy conspiracy theories that he would shun the system and instead choose to side with a hideous monster in human form who is telling him nothing but lies?

Mar 20, Mark Lawrence rated it really liked it. This seems to be one of Stephen King’s less known and less liked novels. I really liked it. I think my difference libdo the majority here is two-fold: Firstly, I’ve discovered many people want all of a story to be good. If the end lets liro down, they feel the whole book is a waste of time.
There were so many scenes, characters, ideas and descriptions that all sho This seems to be one of Stephen King’s less known and less liked novels. There were so many scenes, characters, ideas and descriptions that all shone with the best that King has to tommtknockers that I felt I got my money’s worth and more.
Yes it fell apart tommyknoc,ers bit – yes, that took the shine off. I guess one way of looking at it is if you saw the series Lost. But yes, a good ending would have been wonderful. Secondly, I read this at a lbro when I was thinking a lot about the mechanics and techniques of writing and story telling.
It’s the first time I really remember marveling not only at a story, but at the writing on the small and medium scale, and truly timmyknockers what magic was being worked, and how. So – to the book. In brief it’s like most other King books.

Late last night and the night before, tommyknockers tommyknockers knocking at your door I can make a couple of guesses to explain why this book only has a rating of 3. I thought it was great.
Interesting and very different to Kings usual books. That being said, all the elements of a King book are here, great characters, unusual story and great dialogue. I’ve read a few reviews saying that the ending is rubbish. I don’t agree with this and there are definitely worse Kin Late last night and the night before, tommyknockers tommyknockers knocking at your door I can make a couple of guesses to explain why this book only has a rating of 3.
It is a bit long in the tooth but I don’t think that can be helped. It does suffer a bit in the middle whilst King builds the blocks for latter stages in the book, so I can see people switching off, but I didn’t think it was that bad. Above all, this is a King fanboy book, the references to his other works if you’ve read a lot of King make this book worth reading.
Another solid story from the King of Kings: View all 3 comments. Many years ago I first read the Tommyknockers. It was a huge brick of a book- a hardcover version no less. I was fascinated with it. 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.
The Tommyknockers had this great build- up, it was intense, there was so much going on.
