Publisher Description

Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem's Lot in the hopes that living in an old mansion, long the subject of town lore, will help him cast out his own devils and provide inspiration for his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods and only one comes out alive, Mears begins to realize that there may be something sinister at work and that his hometown is under siege by forces of darkness far beyond his control.

    " This novel is brilliant! A great spin on the creation of ghost towns. 'Salem's Lot was the first novel I've ever read by Stephen King, and it absolutely won't be the last. Apparently, of all the books that he has written, this is Stephen's favorite, so much so that he picks up the story again to some capacity in his Dark Tower series. I look forward to starting that series soon! "

    " This was the first Stephen King book that I'd read and I really enjoyed it. I had no idea what it was about and that really enhanced the reading experience for me. I thought it was a really interesting and fun book to read and I look forward to reading more from Stephen King, "

    " Long before there was True Blood there was 'Salem's Lot! One of my top King novels of all time. It honors the traditional lore of vampires while setting it in modern day Maine (of course). Characterization is fantastic and the battles are epic. "

    " I sort of waded through this one because it was one of his better-known books. I expected more - somehow the characters never engaged. I think he did the 'alien disrupts small Maine town' idea much better with 'Under The Dome'. "

    " Excellent book!!! My first Stephen King novel and I couldn't put it down. I didn't originally know what the book was about so that made it even more interesting. I love how fluidly he changes point of view and keeps the story going so smoothly. I was very impressed. One of my favorites!!! "

    " The most deeply frightening book I have ever read. This book made me believe vampires are real. That is something neither Twilight nor Interview with a Vampire or many others can claim. Truly, profoundly, can't-sleep-at-night scary. A great read. "

    " For me, I've found that many of King's books take a while before getting in that "can't put it down" zone. This one, like It, took about half of the novel to get through before I was hooked. After that, I blazed through the rest of the novel, and really enjoyed it. "
