This is an odd terrifying story of pets & perhaps people that can come back to life after being buried in the pet sematary, which sits on ancient Indian burial grounds. Is it a blessing or a curse? You decide. Very good book. 5 stars.
As with most of King's earlier books, Pet Sematary is one you have to read if you are into scary and suspenseful stories. This is by far one of his 'signature' style books. The movie was done quite well and follows the book almost exact.
Definitely a classic; and so much better than the movie! I'm sure you've all heard the basic story; people have pets who die, and when they bury them in this certain cemetary, they come back to life. Find out what happens to one family when their young son dies and they bury HIM there!
When I read this book for the first time, I wanted to lock it up somewhere and never open it again. But I couldn't do it, It kept pulling at me and I finished it in two days. It is scary on a level much grater than ghost and ghouls. It scares you from the inner most part of your heart. Stephen King knows better than any other how reach inside the human mind and find the things that scare them most. Its not the thing that goes BOO in the night. Its the real world things, the things you only think of at night when your in your bed alone but when the morning comes its the farthest thing from your mind. The things you only think of in your secret mind and never say out loud. This is a must read for readers of any Genre.
