    The painful, hard thing about Stephen King's writing is that so often, he takes something real, something that people can experience in the real world, and builds the supernatural stuff onto that. In The Shining, there's Jack's alcoholism; in The Talisman, there's Jack/Jason's mother's...

    A truly spooky story!!! NEVER PLAY WITH THE BEYOND I was familiarized with the story since I have watched several times the 1998's film adaptation, but I hadn't properly read the original novel and since it's already announced a new film adaptation for April next year (2019...

    Every Halloween, I like to do a little season?s readings. For most of the year, I generally avoid scary books and movies. Life is scary enough without looking for extra frights. But there?s something about the Fall. Once the wind gets sharp, the days get short, and the leaves start...

    ?It?s probably wrong to believe there can be any limit to the horror which the human mind can experience. On the contrary, it seems 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 ...

    It is always an exciting adventure to read some of Stephen King?s horror-themed works, as they tap into some of his darker side and fill the narrative with wonderfully tangential material. Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job in a Maine town, uprooting his family from their Chicago home. ...

    While a third into this Stephen King book, it dawned on me why King had such a strong fan base around the world in the 80s, and was the hottest name in popular fiction. It came to me that reading such a well-written horror book was legitimately one of the most primal, adult thi...

    "Sometimes dead is better".................KING calls Pet Sematary his scariest book, and I can understand why. It is super creepy and super "shocking" where he takes the reader, and his interesting prologue explaining how he came to write this unsettling tale brings a bit of truth to ...

    I knew next to nothing plot-wise going into this which I think made the pivotal moment in the middle such a gut-punch. I thought King's descriptions of grief both traumatizing and brilliant. Can't wait to see the movie! Video review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPzUd... ...

    These characters should have taken a lesson from the old story ?The Monkey?s Paw,? seriously. This is the book that really convinced me that hardcore horror novels are not for me. At all. I can't remember if I was already the mother of a toddler when I read this. Those fin...

    Pet Sematary Review (Kinda) I know this review is long, but I have a personal story to tell. Read it if you want to, but the simple fact of the matter is that this book is awesome. If you haven't read it, stop fucking about. When I was tenyears old, my mother and her best friend...

    I loved this book! I?m so glad I finally read Pet Sematary! What a creepy book. The unease and anxiety just keeps building in this book and it's brutal! I?ll have to be honest here. (view spoiler)[I almost couldn?t get through this book because of the grief Stephen King pu...

    Two things about this book: 1. It is one of two Stephen King books I finished in one sitting (the other being The Dead Zone) 2. When I was a kid, I had to make sure the cover of this book was not facing out or I could not sleep. I didn't even like to look at it when I was awake! ...

    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. 2nd reading, and it still remains my favorite book that I've read so far. _______________ Once upon a time when I was a child, I...

    Note: I read this book in RMFAO's November Buddy-Read with some of my awesome friends Magdalena, Titas, Andrew, Kim, Stefani Saloma, Marigold, Konstantina Pap. SPOILERS AHEAD!! Pet Sematary is undoubtedly one of Stephen King?s finest works. I tend to be speechless when it c...

    Stephen King's legacy will be vast, I have no doubt. We'll still read him hundreds of years from now, just as we have with Poe and Dickens and many others. Of all his master works, however, I take the somewhat unpopular stance that Pet Sematary is his magnum opus. Re-reading it now onl...

    This novel was absolutely terrifying, especially because it somehow seemed so real. While reading, I was constantly guessing how the whole thing was supposed to end, because I really couldn't come up with a possible and fitting solution. But of course, Stephen King knew what to do! H...

    So this is the third time I read this Stephen King classic. The first time, I was a teenager and I just didn't *get* it like I got it the second time, which was Christmas of 2015. That time really blew me away. Especially how emotional this read was. I didn't remember crying so much th...

    Well, I doubt that I'll ever have any other way of saying this, but after reading this book, my mind, is well and truly fucked. This book, and the story it tells, pushes the boundaries even for the sanest of individuals. It physiologically grips you, and Stephen King manages to get ins...

    Spectacularly intensely horrifically done. The forward by Stephen King was wonderful. I waited a long time to read this one and it was well worth the wait. That last 10-15% of the book was WOW! Excellently woven story. I love King's older novels so much! So great to read before the new...

    An incredible story with interesting characters and plot - but with a very intentional focus on exploring the painful and raw emotion of grief. King dissects grief and a way that exposes the reader and really helped me to process my own. Phenomenal story ...

    Wow. Just wow. I've put off reading this one for years because, well.... I'm a wimp. There, I said it. When one of the most well-known names in the contemporary era of the horror genre says something is his scariest book, I take note. It seems bizarre that I finally chose to tackle thi...

    I read The Shining, my first Stephen King book back in summer of 2016 and was absolutely blown away by it. Since then I've been reading King's books religiously to find the next masterpiece that could push the limits of a sane mind. Well, It took me two years and eleven more King's b...

    "Cause what you buy, is what you own. And what you own... always comes home to you." Louis Creed and his family have recently moved to the town of Ludlow, Maine. Behind their house there is a path that leads to a 'Pet Sematary', where the children of surrounding areas have buried th...
