""Sometimes dead is better...."" 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 death itself...and hideously more powerful.… (més)

A great Stephen King classic. ( )

4.5 stars. As usual, Stephen King inspired and scared the pants off me in equal measure. Also as usual for vintage King, there's a lot of period-typical misogyny and racism in this book which took me out of the story at times but it wasn't more than what you'd expect.

This book is essentially a book about death, moreso than any other book of his I've read. It's about our relationship with death, our fear of it, the shocking finality of it, and the importance of accepting that it is natural and inevitable and always just around the corner.

This doesn't mean that there's non-stop gore in this book. In fact, it's mostly two dudes sitting around philosophising about death and telling stories about the people and pets who are no longer with them. Not to say that it was boring because it definitely was not. This is what King does best in my opinion. Not the twists and monsters but the in-depth character studies and meandering monologues that give the characters and world a weight and realness that other authors can only dream of achieving. This is how King builds the suspense that he's so famous for. He hints that something bad will happen then spends hundreds of plotless pages building up his characters so that when the inevitable disaster comes it punches you right in the heart. And yes, very, very gory.

I'm taking off .5 stars for the treatment of the female characters and the lack of minorities except as off-screen wise, mystical ancients. I've read Stephen King say that any sexism and racism in his books is meant to be part of the characterisations of his characters, because real people are that way, but that doesn't explain the structural sexism and racism in this book. Certainly when in the first chapter Louis Creed thinks about how he'd like to smack his daughter because she's annoying him, that's part of his character. But the fact that the only adult female characters are just there for the main male characters to protect and worry over and no Native characters are given a voice but they're constantly referred to in a stereotypical way is on King. I'm willing to forgive this because 80s but I thought I should point it out.

tl;dr: heartbreaking, gruesome, and poignant book that deals with death in all its complexities. Highly recommend. ( )

This is surely one King's better books. It is honestly scary and leaves you wishing the sun would shine a little brighter and ease your fear. It really is not that much different than what many of his peers were writing at the same time but for some reason the literary world stands up and takes notice of him more than the rest. Could it be that unlike his peers he is not afraid to be explicit on the page. ( )

A pleasure to have Michael C. Hall narrating.

For me the book didn't stand up to my personal test of time. Was a little too long this time around. The last fifth of the book was great though.
---------------

Why is cemetery spelled "Sematary"?
It was a place where children buried their pets and they made the sign. Misspelled as a child would do.
--------------

In the intro (from 2000) Stephen King says this story he considers his most scary but based on letters he's received others feel The Shining is his scariest. I do remember getting heart palpitations at a certain section of this story. It will be interesting to see if it still happens 25 years later. (I did a re-read and that part was still great but no heart palpitations, reduced to a 3* read for me) ( )

Jesus said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go, that I may awake him out of his sleep."

Then the disciples looked at each other, and some smiled because they did not know Jesus had spoken in a figure. "Lord, if he sleeps, he shall do well."

So then Jesus spoke to them more plainly, "Lazarus is dead, yes...nevertheless let us go to him."

—JOHN'S GOSPEL (paraphrase)
When Jesus came to Bethany, he found that Lazarus had lain in the grave four days already. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she hurried to meet him.

"Lord," she said, "if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But now you are here, and I know that whatever you ask of God, God will grant."

Jesus answered her: "Your brother shall rise again."

—JOHN'S GOSPEL (paraphrase)
"Hey-ho, let's go."
—THE RAMONES
Jesus therefore, groaning inside of himself and full of trouble, came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone had been raised against the mouth. "Roll away the stone," Jesus said.

Martha said, "Lord, by this time he will have begun to rot. He has been dead four days."...

And when he had prayed awhile, Jesus raised his voice and cried, "Lazarus, come forth!" And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin.

Jesus said to them, "Loose him and let him go."

—JOHN'S GOSPEL (paraphrase)
   "I only just thought of it," she said hysterically. "Why didn't I think of it before? Why didn't you think of it?"
   "Think of what?" he questioned.
   "The other two wishes," she replied rapidly. "We've only had one."
   "Was that not enough?" he demanded fiercely.
   "No," she cried triumphantly: "we'll have one more. Go down and get it quickly, and wish our boy alive again."

—W.W. JACOBS ("The Monkey's Paw")

Louis Creed, who had lost his father at three and who had never known a grandfather, never expected to find a father as he entered his middle age, but that was exactly what happened...although he called this man a friend, as a grown man must do when he finds the man who should have been his father relatively late in life.

"It's probably wrong to believe there can be any limit to the horror which the human mind can experience. On the contrary, it sees that some exponential effect begins to obtain as deeper and deeper darkness falls-as little as one may like to admit it, human experience tends, in a good many ways, to support the idea that when the nightmare grows black enough, horror spawns horror, one coincidental evil begets other, often more deliberate evils, until finally blackness seems to cover everything. And the most terrifying question of all may be just how much horror the human mind can stand and still maintain a wakeful, staring, unrelenting sanity. That such events have their own Rube Goldberg absurdity goes almost without saying. At some point, it all starts to become rather funny. That may be the point at which saity begins either to save itself or to buckle and break down; that point at which one's sense of humor begins to reassert itself."
