As promised, I've read 3 chapters today,lol, okay I've read 4 :) It was really hard to stop at that but with other reads in progress I had to restrain myself from going on!
As ususal, I got goosebumps while reading the blurb at the book jacket (reading it in paperback somehow made it more spooky!) I was so excited when I started to read the first chapter that it was I wonder that I wasn't jumping around!
Louis seems a bit off-beat so far but I'm sure that it'll change by the next couple of chapters. I'm liking the plot and I really can't wait to read the next 4 chapters tomorrow!

Yea, it's really having that effect.
Take your own sweet time dear!

Marigold Dicer | 21 comments I found the book in a library near my Dad's house! Great :) this is the first Stephen King book I've read so I'll see how I go. I'm sure I'll be reading sporadically since I work in shifts but I shall comment as regularly as I can. Good reading everyone!

Andrew (andrew619) | 153 comments I started this book today, till now only 7 chapters, but the day is long and so I can balance the days when I'll read little. The Main is always protagonist here like in other books of Stephen King.
This year I think I read more books by King than ever.

Yes I think I will focus more on this book also. Mostly becuase it's so easy to get into the story and the chapters aren't that long and everytime I read I just think "one more chapter"....;)

hahah! yeah! That's what King's writing does, I've finished all my other reads, and now I'm gonna read only Pet Sematary for atleast a week.
Gonna treat meself with some good ol' king's book ;)


Heena Rathore P. (heenarathore) | 2070 comments Mod
I've just started chapter 10 and I'm already totally into it :)
When Jud took them all to 'where the path leads', I was feeling 'why the heck will someone want their children anywhere near the sematary.' That's really sick, I agree with Rachel!
I just hope that nothing happens to either Ellie or Gage (I hate what happened in Cujo!)

Stefani Sloma (stefanisloma) So I'm sorry for being absent so far in this buddy read. I haven't started the book yet so I don't want any spoilers! I've been super busy the past week or so, but I plan to start the book this week. I'll be back to discuss when I do! :)

I am at the beginning of chapter 10, but today I'haven't read my daily dose.

Yes, it's a strange place to bring the children, to say nothing of fact that the children take care of the path and the graveyard. You begin to feel something that lurks in the dark, a sensation or an ancestral fear, but it could be a good material in the hands of a writer.

Yea, indeed it is! King has really done a fab job in capturing all the dark and twisted emotions in the book!

Yesterday I read till chapter 18 and trust me guys it was really hard for me to sleep! The chapter where Louis hears Victor Pascow say those stupid stuff made me feel weird!
And then when he visits Louis and takes him to the sematary, well guys... I really really felt got the 'chills'.... I know the stuff is not scary but, as ususal, everything just makes me feel kinda 'weird'... somethong like this...

Is it just me or did you feel the same???

Yes, weird it is the right word, also because in a situation like that, after so many books, I had a little suspicious of what could happen. Yesterday evening I finished the chapter 18, we'll see this evening.

I'm having a bad feeling about what's going to come next! I hope it's not the children or for that matter church!


Titas (I read in bed) | 98 comments I fell sad for not being able to join due to some problems.

I'ven seen the movie so I know what to expect, but that doesn't help much...it's still chilling to read the story and now I'm reading chapter 36 and trust me the story just keep getting worse...

Ahhhhh! That. Is. So. TRUE!
Like Louis, even I can feel my skin start to crawl!
This book keeps on getting creepier... I'm scared to read further! It's my bedtime now and I'll just get the hell out of my study and crawl inside the covers!
I'm gonna read further in the protective warmth of the daylight!
I'm really freaking out... something like this:

Hey guys, Stephen King doesn't write bedtime stories.
Is it not for that chill under our skin that we read his stories? A sensation that grow page after page? I dont know if there we'll be an happy ending, but the journey it seem wonderful!


Andrew (andrew619) | 153 comments I finished chapter 26. The last chapters are truly chilling and i begin to imagine the most horrible range of possibilities for those following.

I'm on chapter 33 and I'm creeped out because of Rachel's past!

Andrew (andrew619) | 153 comments I'm on chapter 40. This second part is started with a punch in the stomach. Things get interesting and terrifying and I agree, the happy ending is always farther.


Titas (I read in bed) | 98 comments Chapter 12: Gaaaaa

*shudder* Uffff
I am still trying to keep my cool

Heena Rathore P. (heenarathore) | 2070 comments Mod
OMG... Gage is dead! That's exactly one can expect from King! To kill an innocent lil child! I hate this :(


Andrew (andrew619) | 153 comments I've finished this book some minutes ago. Wow, since Gage's death is a cycle of events swaying between insanity and nightmare. A great story and a majestic work of Stephen King!


Heena Rathore P. (heenarathore) | 2070 comments Mod
Hats off you guys! You've done it... but sadly I haven't yet!

I was so devastated by Gage's death than I was in a daze for a day or two. Finally I'm making myself read the rest of the book and now suddenly Ellie dreaming of Pascow and indicating that Gage might harm Louis! OMG... this is like the best twist that could have been! I read that part and I was like...

Titas (I read in bed) | 98 comments Ok done! Another one to remember while tucking myself under the blanket for some nights surely! The plot intensified just like a true Stephen King novel and gave the chills that I craved for!

Yes, Heena this is a great part. All elements seem to converge there and that's not all, but you'll see. Yes the dead of Gage is sad, but the main protagonist in this book is the evil and the influence it has on humans.
A great book for this first reading!

It was really hard to go through when Louis started planning to resurrect Gage


Marigold Dicer | 21 comments Whoa! Okay, I was having fun reading the comments and was impressed but how most people were eluding to plot points without actually coming out and saying anything and then BAM! I'm only up to chapter 10 but will probably scream through most of the book this week as I'm finally off. I'm a little disappointed I accidentally read one of the major plot happenings, but I doubt it will detract from my enjoying the story. Having said that, these first 10 chapters have actually been fairly sweet. I didn't think the sematary visit was bad at all, I thought it was a positive association with death. Although now that I think about it I didn't have a 'I could die at ANYTIME' thought like Ellie did until I was at least 10 (I remember it fairly clearly - I was playing with lego at the time and somehow realised my own mortality), so maybe she was too young to have that experience.


Konna I'm on chapter 25. The start of this book was a bit slow for me and I really feel that the book is actually going to start from this point and on. I'm anxious to learn what's going to happen next!

No Worries! Like I said, I don't think it will detract from me enjoying the story. I watched Gone Girl when I knew the first twist and it didn't bother me. Thanks for the apologies Titas. And I would never hit someone!

Marigold, I'm really sorry that we guys got carried away and disclosed one of the most important happenings... but trust me, there is are hell lot of surprises in the last 100 or so pages than rest of the book!
I really think that I'm badly shaken by the way things turned out in the last few pages!
Be ready for some real inhumanity by the most unexpected character!
I hope you have a great time reading it and a of chills as well! ;)

Yea, it's true! As always, this one too starts off slow but from now on you won't be disappointed. The book will give you what it promises, the horror, till the last page!
