I’m a big Stephen King fan, but surprisingly, I still haven’t read Pet Sematary.
So this Halloween, I’m reading this little gem and enjoying every bit of it. It’s engaging and masterfully written like other King novels. I don’t think it’ll be a favorite (that spot’s reserved for Misery!), but it will definitely be one of the most remembered.
So far, here’s my favorite line from the book:
“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.”
Stephen King novels may not be Pulitzer-material, but you must admit the king of terror knows how to build a world that’s terrifying and believable at the same time. I have a few dozens pages left to read, and he has already impressed on me that this novel is one of his greatest works.
Anyway, enjoy your Halloween everyone while I devour the last pages of Pet Sematary.
