This is another paragraph Product Description; Suspenseful, frightening, and sometimes howlingly funny, Stephen King's first full-length novel in three years is a story of invasion and battle, survival and heroism. It is a story of how men remember.and how they love. Once upon a time, in the haunted city of Derry (site of Stephen King's IT and Insomnia), four young boys stood together and did a brave thing; something that changed them in ways they hardly understand. A quarter-century later, the boys are men who have gone their separate ways although they still get together once a year, to go hunting in the north woods of Maine. But this time a man comes stumbling into their camp, lost, disoriented and muttering about lights in the sky. Before long, these old friends will be plunged into the most remarkable events of their lives and a terrible struggle with a creature from another world.
