Creepy... in a good way
This is not your daughter's vampire novel.
Great vampire book! Classic
As I type this on my iPhone I will keep it brief. Great book- pacing is a little slow for some at the beginning, but what he does is paint a great picture of a small Maine town getting over run by vampires. 5 stars from a fellow Manie-iac!!
In my honest opinion...
‘Salem’s Lot is the best book by Stephen King. I loved the books “The Stand”, “The Shining”, and “It”, but I really love ‘Salem’s Lot. I think that this take on the Dracula/vampire story is the best out of any that I’ve seen. The characters in this book are so perfectly written. The unassuming hero, his young sidekick, the fallen priest, the small town sheriff, they are all perfectly written. I can’t write, but even if I were the greatest author ever, I don’t think that I could possibly write a better version of, let alone any novel, better than The Lot! Thank you Stephen King. When I think of the most terrifying vampire of all time, I don’t think of Dracula, I think if Kurt Barlow!
