Now a major motion picture! Stephen King's #1 New York Times bestseller is a "wild, powerful, disturbing" (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave--among King's most iconic and frightening novels. When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Despite Ludlow's tranquility, an undercurrent of danger 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 graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. 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 where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there--one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better...… (més)

Scariest Stephen King yet, especially for anyone who is a parent...fear that your children are in danger are scarier than any fear for yourself. Excellent audio narration by Michael C. Hall! ( )

An old indian burial ground now used as a pet cemetery. The old cemetery is filled with signs erected by children marking graves of their pets killed on the nearby busy highway. But back behind the graves, under a tree is a darker spot....a spot even the Native Americans avoided. A place that can reverse death...for a price. The pets that come back home are not the same. And a person should never, ever be buried there.

I first read Pet Sematary when I was in high school. For me, the worst part of the story wasn't any of the resurrections or attack scenes, but the funeral. Revisiting the story as an adult, I still feel the same way...but for different reasons.

Lewis and Rachel. Parents burying one of their children. Everyone rallies around Rachel. The neighbors. Friends. Family. Nobody is there for Lewis. In fact his father-in-law decides the funeral is a great place to spew insults and horrific accusations in Lewis' face. The man who just 3 days before got to watch one of his children dragged down a road by a truck has to listen to horrible things spilling out of his father-in-laws mouth in front of everyone at the funeral. Nobody comes to help him....to make the old man leave....to calm the situation....to comfort Lewis....to stand up for Lewis. When he reacts in grief and finally (after years of abuse, name calling, being left out of holiday plans, etc) strikes the old man, the entire altercation is somehow seen as Lewis' fault. Everything falls on Lewis.

Who is there for the father as he buries his child?

Nobody.

Who is there to keep Lewis from making two very large mistakes between that moment and the end of the book?

Nobody.

That is the most horrific thing in this entire book for me. Lewis -- the doctor who worked so hard for his family, loved his kids, loved his wife, did everything for them -- has nobody and nothing. The in-laws are never once even admonished for their behavior. The wife is never there for him. In the end, she leaves Lewis ALONE and goes with her parents -- the ones that have been spewing poison against Lewis for years. Rachel blames LEWIS. She leaves him. Like his grief, like his needs, like his loss doesn't matter. Never once does she stand up for her husband and tell her father and mother to hush...to stop saying horrible things about him....to stop their behavior....and not once does she berate her father for his horrible behavior at their child's funeral. How sick is that??

The entire scene starts the downward spiral of this story into absolute horror.

This story is magnificent.....and disturbingly, horrifically dark....at the same time. I can see why Stephen King chucked the manuscript into a desk drawer and only published it to get out of a bad publishing contract. Even King was horrified by this book. Rightly so -- it's chilling -- with a cold, morbid, horrible truth to it.

If faced with the choice to bring a loved one back from death, many would make a horrible decision. It isn't about the person who died.....the choice comes from grief. An inability to live without the person who is gone. The utter impossibility of never hearing a voice again, never seeing a face, never enjoying someone's presence again. But what if the thing that comes back is no longer the loved one that was lost? Would the choice still be made?

It makes for a chilling story. A bit too chilling in places. The funeral scene still haunts me. Who the F was ever there for Lewis??

I re-visited this Stephen King novel in audio version this time. The scary parts are even more chilling when the tale is being read out loud. Narrated by Michael C. Hall, the audio is just under 16 hours long. Hall reads at perfect pace and does the Maine accent of elderly neighbor Jud just right. He gives a great performance. It made the story even more chilling to hear it read out loud in such a normal voice. No low voice of doom. But one that sounds like ..... anybody. It grants the horrible events a normalcy that makes them seem even more horrific.

Masterfully written. Chillingly horrific. Hard to take. I agree with Stephen King. Pet Sematary is the darkest book he has ever published. While it might have been better to leave it chucked in a desk drawer, I'm glad he published it. The story is powerful and definitely hits home.

I'm giving Pet Sematary full stars. Any book that can bring emotions out in me -- even anger -- is well-written. I find this book more disturbing than scary though.

I think I will re-read Christine next. After re-reading Pet Sematary I'm just not ready to try to revisit another King story that really bothered me -- Carrie. I will read Christine and some more Bachman writing before I try to tackle that one again. ( )

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) ( )

This is the book that made me stop reading Stephen King for at least 2 decades. Is it horror-ific? It definitely is! Unfortunately, a lot of horror depends on people doing things that they really shouldn't, or that I wouldn't and that just made me stop reading this genre. Is it terrifying and creepy? Sure is!
This one and Cujo just really put me off King and horror completely. ( )

“The soil of a man's heart is stonier...A man grows what he can, and he tends it.”

I read Pet Sematary for the first time when I was 13, and for the second time now. I loved it even more this time around. And I can say with no hesitation that it’s a completely different reading experience as a 31-year-old mother. It’s horrifying and heart wrenching on a completely different level.

Many things from the book stuck with me, but reading it this time, I discovered just how much I had forgotten in the past almost 20 years - so many nuances and little things that all combine to make this one of the closest to perfect books in existence. You tell yourself that King won’t push things past a certain point, even when you know he will, and then you keep reading, frantically going through page after page, despite the fear and anguish rising in your belly. And when it’s over, you don’t quite know what to do with yourself.

What more could you ask for? ( )

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."
