Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Tommyknockers is wonderful. With his usual eerie effortlessness, Mr. King attaches us to Bobbi and Gard, taunting us with menace neither they nor we can define. When evil starts gobbling Haven with a vengeance, swollen prose and comic-book grue spurt out one authentic gem (a little boy’s magic show) and instill in us a creeping terror of good country folks.” New York Times
“It’s hard to resist the sheer energy of the storytelling...Mr. King succeeds in dreaming up nearly endless variations of the horror and in making his town fairly teem with his grotesques...what The Tommyknockers proves is that Stephen King can do anything he wants to.” New York Times Book Review
“Plenty of blood and guts, macabre humor, and a well-wrought realization of the New England countryside...King’s legions of fans will demand it.” Library Journal
“In true King fashion, there are a plethora of kooky characters who populate the small town of Haven, and Herrmann never ceases to provide intuitive interpretations of each…Ultimately, Herrmann’s wide-ranging vocal abilities serve to shrink this epic to a more user-friendly size.” AudioFile
