Book Summary

It begins with nothing more frightening than a nursery rhyme; yet in Stephen King's hand it becomes an unforgettable parable of dread, a threat from an unimaginable darkness that drags the practical inhabitants of a New England Village into a hell worse than their own horrible nightmares...and yours.

It begins with a writer named Roberta Anderson, looking for firewood in the forest that stretches behind her house. Bobby stumbles over three inches of metal, which unusually heavy spring runoff has left sticking out of the soil. A logger's beer can, she thinks it first, but "the metal was a solid as mother-rock."

It begins with Bobby's discovery of the ship in the earth, a ship buried for millions of years, but still vibrating faintly, still humming with some sort of life faint...weak...but still better left alone.

Bobby then begins to dig tentatively at first, then compulsively and is joined by her old friend and one-time lover Jim Gardner. It'll be a weirdly advanced technology, their excavation precedes a pace. And they uncover more and more of an artifact both familiar and so unbelievable it is almost beyond comprehension.  

In this riveting, nightmarish story, Stephen King has given us his tallest, most terrifying novel to date. And the next time someone wraps at your door, you may want to keep the chain on. It just might be the Tommyknocker man.
