“When Louis Creed & his family move from Chicago 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.
The road in front of their home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs & cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway. Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed.”
My first love
This book made me fall in love with Stephen King. We first met when I was around 10. I found Pet Sematary at the library. I was hooked. It was love at first sight. I’ve always loved horror. He introduced me to another kind. It wasn’t just about the blood and gore. King invaded your mind with his words. He took basic human emotions and mixed them with suspense, dread, horror and the supernatural. He didn’t just scare you. King fucked with your mind.
This books scared the crap out of me as a kid. I would stay up late reading. I would get so scared that I would put the book down for a bit before picking it up.
The best part of the book was how King presented you with this Norman Rockwell picture of the Creeds in the beginning and by the end of the book, that family is ripped to shreds.
A must read for King fans.
