Publisher Description

Now a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, and Amy Seimetz!

Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller Pet Sematary, a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and beloved 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

  • “Though the horror elements are always looming, Hall warmly portrays the all-too-human Creed family, full of love for each other but also flawed, damaged, and uncertain. He molds Louis Creed into an imperfect but sympathetic protagonist and effectively changes pitch to give Louis’ wife Rachel and their two kids believable voices. For added texture, Hall manages a solid Maine accent as the Creeds’ kindly old neighbors. Hall’s narration captures the surprising humanity found on the page, but his voice becomes appropriately grim as the story barrels towards the inevitable darkness.

    " I have always loved Stephen King books and listening to the audio book took that creepy level of this novel to a whole other level. Michael C. Hall can really drag you into this story and keep you captivated until the very end. "
