read online epub Pet Sematary (Audio Download): Stephen King, Michael C. Hall, Hodder & Stoughton: Audible Audiobooks –

For the first time in unabridged audio download comes the perennial classic from Stephen King timeless and topical 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

    I bought pet sematary for my kindle quite a while back but just simply didn t get around to reading it despite being a huge fan of Stephen King Then a couple of weeks ago I came across the trailer for the movie that is set to be released later this year and decided it was time to get the book read so I can compare the book and the upcoming movie.Well what a book it is This is definitely one of Kings most disturbing pieces of work, especially in the second half of the book In fact the first half, although reasonable, was certainly not a 5 star quality read by any stretch of the imagination But as with many of Kings masterpieces, you really have to allow him to paint a huge picture of the setting and let him really fully introduce the characters to the point that you really know them personally before he unveils his dark and horrific ideas upon you Once he does that in this amazing tale it definitely does become a 5 star, disturbing yet brilliant book One of my favourite by this genius of an author.

    I allowed myself back on the King wagon In all honesty, considering the free flowing writers I ve read recently, I found this a bit of a chug, particularly at the beginning, but the pay off is in the second half of the book.As the father of a two year old, this is without doubt the hardest read of this year Stephen King is the best writer of child characters of any author in history, and he may as well have named the character Leo my son rather than Gage for the way it drew me into the action This is known as Stephen King s scariest novel, and to some degree I agree with that length vs pay off creep out per page to a large degree Unnerving in large parts, and for me, this was an ending that Stephen King got right A book worthy of the tag horror

    By far the most horrific and upsetting of Stephen King s works.Expertly written as always and a great story but I found myself so emotionally drained and distraught after reading it, as I imagine anyone else with children would be particularly as I have a son exactly the same age as the child in the story.Absolutely terrifying but in a very different way to the others The situation in the novel is REAL horror It ll certainly make you cuddle your little ones a bit tighter and for a bit longer.

    This novel is one of the most psychologically disturbing books I have ever read Not so much horror as an examination of the morality of the oh so human desire overcome death Of the unbearable agony of loss Of guilt Of refusing to to accept death as the inevitable outcome of living things And you can scarcely tell where reality ends and monsters begin The result is creeping terror Stephen King is at his brilliant story telling best but be warned, although you can t put it down, it can give you nightmares.

    This is classic, chilling King at its finest The book he states is his scariest, and for good reasons Whilst there are supernatural elements throughout the book, the real terror is the utterly relatable portrayal of grief, and the ensuing certainty that if you placed yourself in Louis s shoes, you would probably take most of the steps he does Pet Sematary s characters are three dimensional, and about as real as characters in the page of a novel can get I ve dropped a star for the abrupt ending, as King often does, you are left wanting , and , but other than that the novel was superb The calmer times, and the spine chilling times, equally captivating Fantastic as always.
