I have read this many times. I feel it is the best book written by King. Compelling tale of a small town in Maine. What happens when your new resident is literally feeding off the populace?
A classic tales of Vampires and love gone astray.Good read!!
awsome book...stephen king at his best...scary, heartless vampires...NO TWILIGHT BULL****..lol
Talk about scary! I love vampire books and Stephen King does an excellent job of making the impossible seem possible. It's very frightening. I wouldn't recommend reading it late at night when you're home all alone unless you're prepared to be scared by every little sound you hear!
If anyone watched the movie made from the book (I think two were made), this has that beat hands down. Much more intense and creepy than any movie. This book is definitely a keeper for me.
A great, scary read. It's a little campy in spots, but classic King. A very loose Dark Tower Tie-in.
Steven KIngs's book Salem's Lot. Real old, but a GREAT read
An early Stephen King novel (1975) about a town possessed by an "unspeakable evil."
Horror/Suspense, dark novel detailing a haunted town.
Very good read. One of King's finest. Loved it.
So scary. I read this book at night, in my bed, and I had a hard time getting to sleep, hearing every little noise and imaging someone was at my window. I still get chills when I think about it. Great book!
I think this Stephen King book scared me more than any of his others. Don't read it when you're alone!
Not sure how I didn't read this sooner! I had heard of it and read other Stephen King books but somehow managed to pass this one up for some time. This is classic vampire tale. But written in only the style that Stephen king can write. I loved all the main characters and was sad when some didn't make it. I really don't know what else to say except that if you are new to Stephen King I would recommend this one for you to read first.
The town knew darkness...and the awful, heavy silence of terrifying images grotesquely dancing in and out of the shadows...and stark white faces, huge empty eyes and long gnarled hands that reached out iwth lustful insistence...and the paralyzing fear of a diabolical corruption and the hideous peril more dreadful than death.
This is one of my favorite Stephen King books though I do have many.
I read this book many years ago, but I remember being really scared by it. Anyone who likes King novels and/or vampire stories will enjoy this book.
My second favorite Stephen king novel and my third favorite Vampire tale.
"A spine-tingling novel of creeping terror, gripping in its unrelenting spell of suspense... it will hold you mesmerized!"
"A super exorcism.... tremendous!"
King at his finest!

Something strange is going on in Jerusalem's Lot ... but no one dares to talk about it. By day, 'Salem's Lot is a typical modest, New England town; but when the sun goes down, evil roams the earth. The devilishly sweet insistent laughter of a child can be heard echoing through the fields, and the presence of silent looming spirits can be felt lurking right outside your window. Stephen King brings his gruesome imagination to life in this tale of spine tingling horror.
'Salem's Lot is a small New England town with white clapboard houses, tree-lined streets, and solid church steeples. That summer in 'salem's Lot was a summer of homecoming and return; spring burned out and the land lying dry, crackling underfoot. Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'salem's Lot hoping to cast out his own devils and found instead a new, unspeakable horror. A stranger had also come to the Lot, a stranger with a secret as old as evil, a secret that would wreak irreparable harm on those he touched and in turn on those they loved. All would be changed forever: Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test; and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare of 'Salem's Lot. This is a rare novel, almost hypnotic in its unyielding suspense, which builds to a climax of classic terror. You will not forget the town of 'salem's Lot nor any of the people who used to live there.
