Pet Sematary Stephen King Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
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…

User reviews about this book
Guess what, Stephen King? It IS your scariest book!
By ES the horror fan
This was the first book I ever read by Stephen King, as well as being the first adult novel I ever read. The movie was the main motivator; I loved it! The book is better than the 1989 film version, but not by much! Publishers Weekly agreed with Stephen King about this emotional, supernatural horror story: “The most frightening book Stephen King has ever written!” I 💯 agree!
Stephen King Greatness
It is a true Stephen King novel, enough said.
To me this was the last of Stephen King’s five star novels. Very scary and very readable and enjoyable. Great story. I think both movie adaptations were horrible. Better just to stick with the book.
Read it today!

I’ve been a fan of the movie since long ago and the book was even better. Reading it after having watched the movie helped me picture the characters that much more. One of the best books I’ve ever read don’t miss out on this one!

This was boring the first 2 parts were boring the movie is better
Awesome. Dark. An emotional and suspenseful read. It does not disappoint.
Forgot how great this book was until I reread it some 22 years ago.
I loved this book!! I’ve read a lot of his work and know the magic that is Stephen King, but this one left me breathless several times after reading through an encounter experienced by one of the characters! A very moving and compelling novel!
The Book was fantastic and I have to say I am a little bit more disappointed in the movie now. Hope the new one is good!
