Tommyknockers is about a U.F.O. found buried in the woods of maine by an author named Bobbi. She starts digging at it, and keeps digging...and digging. Her friend Gard show's up, he's a poet, on his last dime, mile, and so forth. Together they continue to work to unearth the object they have found in the ground...
Soon things start changing in Haven, the town nearby...people begin inventing things that require batteries...a little boy named Hilly disappears...and suddenly Gard realizes he really is all alone in the world...or at least in Haven...

This took me about a month to get through. Not because it's boring but because it made me kind of afraid to go to sleep. Just a wee bit creepy. Ok, maybe it's a lot creepy. It was great besides the fact that it gave me nightmares. The beginning drags just a little bit but once you get through the first and second chapters it starts to pick up.

Steven King does it again with this spine-chilling novel. The definition of a tommyknocker is " ghosts which haunt deserted mines or caves, or b. tunneling ogres.

Great book but it gave me nightmares for nearly 8 months after reading it. I can't recommend it simply for that reason.
