Pet Sematary - Stephen King7.96

World Fantasy Award nominee 1984.

Can Stephen King scare even himself?

Has the author of Carrie, The Shining, Cujo, and Christine ever conceived a story so horrifying that he was for a time unwilling to finish writing it? Yes. This is it.

Set in a small town in Maine to which a young doctor, Louis Creed, and his family have moved from Chicago, Pet Sematary begins with a visit to a graveyard where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. But behind the "pet sematary," there is another burial ground, one that lures people to it with seductive promises... and ungodly temptations.

As the story unfolds, so does a nightmare of the supernatural, one so relentless you won't want... at moments... to continue reading... but will be unable to stop.

Pet Sematary is one of Stephen King's best books. In my opinion this book is much better than any of King's new books, which are often quite bad (and boring). Pet Sematary is an interesting, macabre and a bit disturbing book. It's a classic horror ...
