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 cat.
But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth -- more terrifying than...more
It's not that the story is a bad idea. Stephen King's story of the Creed family -- new to Maine and a life near Bangor -- is pretty clever and has enough going on that it should be interesting. They move in, th...more
Despite this it was still a very profound, riveting tale. Stressing to me the lengths people could possibly go to replace something that was lost in their lives...more
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 the graveyard in the woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. But behind the "pet sematary" there is another burial g...more
En la vida no se puede controlar todo para ser feliz, y mucho menos la muerte, llega un momento en que uno empieza a rascarse, y la monótona felicidad empieza a desquebrajarse muy despacio, hasta un derrumbe de inimaginables consecuencias.
Yes, it's still 5 stars in my book!! I thoroughly enjoyed it all over again. Stephen King builds things up, starting with this average family that you get to know and really begin to care for. Even knowing what happens to th...more

The plot dabbles in the weighty subject matters of obsession, loss, grief, and the skin-crawling act of reanimation. The Creed family (Doctor Lewis, Wife R...more
Pet Sematary is a book that slowly builds up to reveal all it’s secrets, and when it does your left creeped out and disturbed.

As a horror novel however, this one actually robbed me of a few hours of sleep, I could imagine it all happening so vividly. Maybe i have something with creepy littl...more
In my reading of this, as a new father myself, I find the entire concept of the Pet Sematary itself really sort of secondary to the main plot of parents, doing everything in their power, to protect their children from all the dangers in...more
But like all or most of King's books, the film's cannot capture King's detail. I remember one part of the book when the father is going into the cemetary. The police arrive and he is hiding in a tree. His grip is weakening and he looks below only to see the pointed fence tops waiting to pierce his testicles...more
The house looked right, felt right, to Dr Louis Creed.
Rambling, old, unsmart and comfortable. A place where the family could settle; the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Chicago.
Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat.
But behind the house and far away from the road: that was safe. Jus
Stephen King. I have heard so much about him. How wonderful he is. Yada, Yada, Yada. This is the first book I have read of his. I don't know if it's like this for all of his books, but he dragggeeddd the book out. I was li...more
