Description

Soon to be a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, and Amy Seimetz!

Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller Pet Sematary, a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and beloved 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

    This novel is hands down my favorite Stephen King novel ever written, it scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t be more excited that they are remaking the movie which comes out next year. I highly recommend this book to those who are new to or familiar with Stephen King.

    Great book. I want to know what happens next :(...didn't care for the Jesus references but still some good lessons about that. P.s., I was attacked by a cat while reading this book 😓

    One of the scariest novels I've ever read. Right up there with Dracula, Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and the works of Poe and Lovecraft. King, using supernatural tribal elements slowly and methodically destroys a family. The ending is absolutely terrifying. The only problem Mr. King, is that I don't read your books anymore because I really think you bested yourself with this one.
  • My second favorite King novel

    I loved this book. So much better than the movie, and kept me on the edge of my seat. Worth the read.

    Scary parts are few and far between. Lots of unnecessary daily life details and dialogue that drag on. I really only enjoy the cat parts. Meow.
  • King's best work
