Coming back to the little community is like walking into a nightmare for Jim Gardener, poet, drunk, potential suicide.
It all looks the same: the house; the furniture; Jim's friend, Bobbi; her beagle (though ageing); even the woods out at the back. But it was in the woods that Bobbi stumbled over the odd, part-buried object and felt a peculiar tingle as she brushed the soft earth away.
Everything is familiar. But everything is about to change.

I read in a Rolling Stone interview that Stephen King himself doesn't like The Tommyknockers. I can see why. It is utterly boring.
One of SK's strengths that always gets me through lenghty passages is that he has a gift for describing people and small town communities. Not even that works in The Tommyknockers. Having read and/or listened to most of his SK's books, this is one I'd skip in hindsight.
Edward Herrmann does a superb job as reader, though. His skills will be missed.
