Review; Pet Sematary by Stephen King


Well, as it is October and therefore the month of Halloween, I couldn't resist reading a horror novel by Stephen King. This time it was Pet Sematary and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
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. Just a carefully cleared path up into the woods where generations of local children have processed with the solemn innocence of the young, taking with them their dear departed pets for burial.

A sad place maybe, but safe. Surely a safe place. Not a place to seep into your dreams, to wake you, sweating with fear and foreboding.

My Thoughts on the Book
It was fun diving into another Stephen King novel. It has a slow pace and build, but it picked up a bit speed in the end. It may seems "cute" and friendly in the beginning, but then the creepy factor hits you, HARD. It's creepy, morbid and it shows that grief can make you do things you wouldn't do otherwise. Sometimes, dead is truly better.
