Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) Discussion thread for Pet Sematary by Stephen King, one of our paranormal books for May 2018.

Synopsis
When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic and rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow’s tranquility, there’s an undercurrent of danger that 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 pet cemetery out back in the nearby woods.

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. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. An ominous fate befalls anyone who dares tamper with this forbidden place, as Louis is about to discover for himself…

Valeria (valea22) | 64 comments This is going to be my weekend read. I’ve had this S K book in my TBR for ages. I’m so happy it got selected 😁


Valeria (valea22) | 64 comments Finished yesterday. I have to say, having seen the movie when I was a kid. It’s probably the best adapted movie that I’ve seen by King so far.

It has always puzzled me the fact that Louis never manages to understand than the bodies are vassals and the “souls” of the one he buries are not the ones that come back. Towards the end, maybe he though, third is the charm ?
What I could not remember is the little daughter and Pascow giving her the premonitions having failed with his father.

I really liked it 😁


Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) In addition to the october books of the month Ill be reading this one. Also friendly reminder all book of the month threads remain open forever so if you ever want to add to an old one (like i will.be doing) go for it!

D Dyer | 66 comments I reread this recently after having read it for the first time as a teenager and I will say that the experience of reading it as an adult is a completely different one than that of reading it as a kid. As a kid I was really struck by all of the paranormal elements. But coming back to it as an adult I am much more affected by all the real-life horrors in this book. There is just so much more grieving in this book than I remembered.

I haven't read this one since high school - I have been revisiting a lot of King in the last couple years. I would be interested to see how my adult perspective changes the story.
