Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1983, Pet Sematary has since been regarded as one of Stephen King's most frightening and controversial novels. Daring to cross the boundaries of conventional fiction, King has woven a tale so fundamentally startling that he himself was hesitant for it to see the light of day upon its completion. A multilayered examination into the nature of untimely death, shattering loss, and utter desperation, Pet Sematary tears asunder the very fabric connecting our seemingly normal world and the afterlife...leaving readers with an awful truth too haunting to forget.

Review:

"The most frightening book Stephen King has ever written!" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Masterful, chilling, juicily horrible....Like most of Mr. King's novels, Pet Sematary loses credibility toward the end, as it gains in gore....Nor is Pet Sematary his best book as a piece of writing....Reader, beware. This is a book for those who like to take their scare straight — with a chaser of despair." Annie Gottlieb, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Why, someone please tell me, was I holding on to this book so hard that my knuckles had begun to turn white?" Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

Review:

"Stephen King's newest reign of terror is a hair-raiser....[H]e oozes Nameless Dread right into your shoes in waves of unspeakable gore...and are you trapped! Ayiee....You'll be scared!" Chicago Sun-Times

Synopsis:

Don’t miss the classic tale from King of Horror and #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, described by Publishers Weekly as “the most frightening novel Stephen King has ever written.”

When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all...right down to the friendly car.

But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself—and hideously more powerful.

The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better.

How do any of us respond to death and grief? That is the underlying issue to Stephen King's amazing novel. Although it has plenty of horror to interest his hard-core fans and casual readers, it really drives home the extent some people go to to hold on to things that we love. A great summer read.

A very scary and freaky book! King's writing of the Gage family is terrifying! A must read!
