Publisher Description

Now a major motion picture! Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller is a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and frightening novels.

When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger 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 graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. 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 where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better

Everyone’s Greatest Fear

How SK transformed every parent’s greatest fear into a novel I’ll never know and, frankly, don’t want to know.

Still a Favorite

Recently re-read and it’s still one of my favorites. Bone-chillingly haunting plot of fantasy mixed with horror.

Creepy and Suspenseful

Before starting this book I was reading other reviews and the author notes on how everyone thought this was King’s scariest book and even he agreed. Although I would not consider this story “scary” but some words I would use to describe it are: Creepy, disturbing, and suspenseful. Even though my intro to this review seems negative, I can say without a doubt that this book is great and the way King is able to create suspense for every plot point is masterful, along with his ability to describe events in vivid detail. King also has a great way of describing two conflicting personalities between the married couple of Rachel dealing with her trauma of death and Louis being a logical/non-emotional type. To finish this review I would say that the epilogue is genius and the way this story ends is really interesting.
