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 "

Simply one of the best books to kick off a new year! Stephen King has redefined the genre of horror to not only include terrifying imagery and graphic content but also something much more powerful- the blood curdling fear we all have within us of our deep buried potential for evil and how, given certain circumstances, our ID may as well take over full control over our person. Will definitely read more Stephen King moving forward!

All the yes!!!

I've actually had this on my TBR for years but never got around to it so thanks @Hestapleton for tossing this on your #NewYearWhoDis list 👏👏 And especially for recommending the audio. There is nothing like having a character's decent into madness and necromancy read to you by Dexter.

Think I'm going for Homecoming next 👍

@monalyisha

Hestapleton I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! I know I feel like I enjoyed the book more listening to the audio. HOMEGOING is fantastic but also very different from Pet Sematary lol 2w
monalyisha Love the variety! And maybe I‘ll add this one to my TBL list (for someday); I‘ve never read a Stephen King but I‘m always looking for a good audiobook! 2w

I read this when I was younger, but I've been doing a re-read of King I haven't read for years. This one f did not disappoint and I liked it more this time around. Zelda still creeps me out!

Woof. What a story! Stephen King is so unbelievably elaborate with his character development and plots. There are no missing links. The ending was terrifying and left me craving more of his work! I throughly enjoyed my first King novel!

JanuarieTimewalker13 @Texreader He admits it‘s his scariest book and he almost didn‘t publish it. It‘s in the introduction of my 2018 copy (Litsy didn‘t have exact copy I read-same cover but not same book). He‘s written such great stuff, could never give up on him. Try 11/22/63, that‘s not scary. Great read. 3mo

My mother bought this book when she went shopping. She said I needed to read more books so I can be smart.

A Doctor named Louis Creed wanted to fresh by moving in a small town with his family. After the death of their pet cat, Church, his neighbour Jud introduced him to the “Pet Sematary,“ which rose Church back from the dead. Other tragedies then happened to Louis' family, he has no choice but to go back.

Reading this book was my first exposure to the story (I haven‘t seen the movies and don‘t plan to) and for the context - pets and horror? How would that work? - I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it certainly lived up to the hype. The mounting dread was delicious, and so was the climax - something that made perfect sense given the premise of the story, but one you pray would never happen in real life.

I‘m moving tomorrow and my apartment is empty except for my bed and a few necessities. Last night, Luna and I were sitting on my bed reading Pet Sematary during a storm. Power goes out. I realize I packed my flashlight in one of a million boxes. I‘m alone in an empty, dark apartment with my cat, a creepy book and my phone at 42% 👀. Luckily, the guys across the hall had an extra flashlight to save me from my classic horror movie scenario🤦‍♀️

Halfway update: Favourite things about this book so far are 1) the characters grappling with their feelings about death is, in my opinion, some of Stephen King‘s more memorable writing and 2) the character Ellie. She‘s just this wise, curious little girl who adores her cat and I love reading scenes between her and her Dad. I think the relationship is really well done and heartwarming and 3) of course, Church the creepy cat 🧟‍♂️

It took me awhile to read this book because the first movie is one of my all time favorites and I didn't want to be disappointed. However the book is fantastic and the first movie follows it pretty closely. The new movie despite some major changes is also pretty good.
