Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Image result for pet sematary book coverIn the small town of Ludlow the Creed family settles in to their new home along a busy highway. In this household the topic of death is taboo until the family pet gets run over in the road. This incident leads the Creed family down the long, dark path to the Pet Sematary and when further trauma occurs, Louis Creed, the father, goes beyond the Pet Sematary to the Micmac burial grounds where unspeakable actions take place. This family faces unimaginable horror of both mental and supernatural extremes and learn the hard way that sometimes dead is better.

King states this is his scariest novel ever written and I have to agree that it is up there as one of my favorites. What I found interesting about this story is that the idea came to him after a similar experience occurred to his family. He had to bury his daughter’s cat in a make shift pet cemetery and even more horrifying was when his son ran towards a busy road with King getting to him just in time, resulting in a story created by that “what if..” outcome.
