Pet Sematary (Library)
Pet Sematary (Library) | Stephen King
Discover the classic #1 New York Times bestseller from master storyteller Stephen King! When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic and rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow s tranquility, there s an undercurrent of danger that exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing as is evidenced by the makeshift pet cemetery out back in the nearby woods. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. An ominous fate befalls anyone who dares tamper with this forbidden place, as Louis is about to discover for himself "

A slow burn until it reaches its climax, Pet Sematary is a chilling take on the human condition in regards to death, sadness, and it‘s desire to cheat both. Like my prior King reads, the horror story isn‘t nearly as frightening as the prospect of our own human minds.

What remains to be said about a property as well-known as Pet Sematary? From my perspective, this is one of King's more gruesome submissions, wrapped as it is in a saccharine rendition of a loving family. We're made to fall in love with the Creeds ourselves over the course of the book, a love that makes the horrors lurking toward the end that much more horrifying. A special shout-out to Jud, who remains one of King's best side characters. 5/5

BeckyWithTheGoodBooks His scariest in my opinion! 3w
Pikathulhu @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks In many ways, I absolutely agree!! 3w

There was less of everything than I expected; I thought Gage‘s return would be…more. I enjoyed the book, though it dragged on and rambled in parts. I think I prefer the first film.

🎧 This one made me sad. I read 19 Stephen King books in October. This is a must read if you don‘t mind being sad on top of scared.

Know what I haven‘t read or haven‘t watched even though I have the movies … IT!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4

Daisey That is an impressive number of Stephen King books for one month! 3mo
Twainy @Daisey readathon. The most we could read was 19. I have Stephen king burn out for November. 😁 3mo
Bookwormjillk Clever picking 19 as the goal. Good for you! 3mo

✨ Thriller
✨ Haunted House
✨ Hard to choose one. I‘ll pick Pet Sematary since it‘s a favorite reread and there‘s never a time that it‘s not scary. I don‘t even read it at night anymore.

Truly one of the scariest books I‘ve ever read. I did a re-read several years ago and got so scared I had to sleep with a light on!! 😂 King has even said that of all of his novels, this one scares him the most. Maybe someday, I‘ll be brave enough to read it again. 😂 #scarathlondailyprompts #grave #teamslaughter

This is was relatable and traumatic for me to read, while at the same time fully engaging me on how as a society we deal with death, the dying and grief. The horror was there, but not in the magical way it was when reading this as a teen, but in a very horrific raw way.

Louis will stay with me for a long time, I can't help feeling I'd act the same way given the opportunity.

Five stars.

Suet624 I read this years ago when I had two young children and there is one scene in particular that really shook me. 4mo

This is a book that I read when it first came out. It was the first (and only) book that ever truly scared me. If someone had come up behind me while I was reading this book and tapped me on the shoulder I‘d have probably had a heart attack. ❤️❤️👑

Finally decided to get this one finished. I do own a copy of this book, and I did purchase the audiobook too. Michael C. Hall was the narrator (excellent). My favorite character was Judd. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

ElizaMarie ooo I love that you finally got to this one! Its one of my favorites :) 8mo
Crazeedi Thank you for the postcard! I'm still here, trying to get back in the swing. I will write soon, spent last week putting in my garden 8mo
jb72 @ElizaMarie I really enjoyed the story. I‘d say it‘s one of my favorites now too next to IT. Judd was such a good character and it was so sad when Norma died. 8mo

This book gets me every time. It is both scary and heartbreaking. The story is a slow build to what is definitely one of King's most tense and terrifying endings. Definitely one of my favorites and still, for me, the one that scared me the most. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Mehso-so

Not the biggest King fan. At least not his novels. To me they're overwritten. At least the narration of Michael C. Hall was very good. And for once the ending didn't suck. Probably King's creepiest horror novel, maybe would have been my favorite if I hadn't read It first.

Done with King's novels.

TheNeverendingTBR Have you read this? 11mo
stretchkev @TheNeverendingTBR Yeah a long time ago. Was the best Vampire book I ever read. Solid number 3 in the King too 5. Although everything after 3 for me is just ok. Excluding short stories, those I tend to like much more than the longer works. 11mo

This was a reread for me & one of my favorites. Louis and his family move into a new house that is by a busy road and a pet cemetery. The energy from the Pet Sematary uses the other to destroy the family. King himself wrote this book after living in a similar location 🐈‍⬛
