      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 a good many ways, to support the idea that when the nightmare grows black enough, horror spawns horror, one coincidental evil begets other, often more deliberate evils, until finally blackness seems to cover everythin [...]

      While reading this book, all I that runs through my head is the song the Ramones made for the movie. So, I'm going to link the video so all of you can have it running through your head as well! Kickin' it old school =) Pet Sematary - The RamonesOkay, let me just go ahead and say there will be **SPOILERS** for those that haven't read the book or seen the movie. I have seen the movie about 6 million 5 hundred and 8 times. And I love it! THIS is the first time I have read the book, and as there are [...]

      Once upon a time when I was a child, I remember talking with my family about horror movies. Somebody asked what was the scariest movie you've watched, and my mom without thinking said 'Pet Sematary'. I remember laughing and saying 'How on earth could a movie named Pet Sematary be scary?' Fast forward to now, I changed my mind. This book is scariest and creepiest book I've ever read, and I'm sure it'll stay number 1 for a long time. It made me think about stuff I don't want, or refuse, to think a [...]

      That ending thoughThis ended up being very different than what I expected. The less you know about it, the better!

      "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 the story.While truly a horror of a read, it is excellent in respect to its genre, but just awful too if that makes any sense. PS is not particularly gory, but definitely sad, sick, dark, and disgusting with more than one horribly [...]

      This may be King's darkest book. If you're goth, read this and you'll be 5% goth'er.

      "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 their beloved pets in years gone by. Deeper in the woods there lies an ancient Indian burial ground, that Louis discovers has some sinister properties when their family cat diesIt's no secret that Pet Sematary is my favouri [...]

      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 cancer; The Stand plays on our fears of something, somewhere, in one of those labs, getting out of control; in Pet Sematary, it's the death of a child. So much of the book is completely real and believable: the ar [...]

      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 to drop, I inevitably find myself within a small window of time in which horror is appealing. This window closes abruptly at midnight on November 1. Before that time, though, I’m relatively open to the idea of b [...]

    • Heena Rathore P. says:

      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.Pet Sematary is undoubtedly one of Stephen King’s finest works. I tend to be speechless when it comes to writing a review for his books, so forgive me if I write less than necessary, because, nothing that can be said will ever be really enough to praise this book. The story takes you very slowly through the life happenings of Louis Creed [...]

      THE ELECTRICITY JUST FLUCTUATED WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS REVIEW. THE LIGHTS WENT BATSHIT CRAZY. WTF IS HAPPENING? I'M NOT KIDDING AROUND, IT'S 6:15PM AND I'M ALONE IN MY ROOM. WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME, KING?Louis Creeds moves into abeautifulold house in Maine with his wife, daughter, son, and cat. It was all normal and perfect at first, but the nearby woods became apparent and so was the Pet Sematary. When people regard King as the master of horror, I used to raise an eyebrow. I've read a few of hi [...]

      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 ten years old, my mother and her best friend Andrita took a trip to the local drive-in to catch a showing of Pet Sematary. My father was out with his own buddies, so guess who got to tag along? Yup, me. My mother told me to go to sleep in the back seat, and then [...]

      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 things I could do. That's because this type of book can have its own brand of hangover. Luckily, I've not yet dreamed of Zelda, the most terrifying monster in this book. King had a handle on the human mind. He could then - an [...]

      Što bi bilo kad bi ljudi mogli poništiti smrt? Svi smo barem jednom poželjeli da drage nam osobe koje više nisu s nama vratimo u zemaljski život ne razmišljajući o posljedicama. A što ako posljedice imaju visoku cijenu?Inače nisam fan horora ali barem jednom godišnje dopustim sebi da se malo isprepadam. Prošle godine negdje u ovo doba sam čitala "It" koje me se nije posebno dojmilo, ovaj put izbor je pao na groblje kućnih ljubimaca. Jesam li se isprepadala? Bome jesam. Ali više od [...]

      Holy crap, re-reading this book is like watching a car crash about to take place in super slow motion: You know what's coming, you know how it can be avoided, but all the same, you find yourself walking the well-tended path into the deep woods of Northern MaineIn my reading of this, as a new father myself, I find the entire concept of the Pet Sematary itself really sort of secondary to the main plot of parents, doing everything in their power, to protect their children from all the dangers in th [...]

    • Jadranka says:

      Stephen King je istakao da „Groblje kućnih ljubimaca“ smatra svojom najstrašnijom knjigom, i da je nakon završetka pisanja rukopis stavio u fioku, misleći da je konačno otišao suviše daleko. I sam je toliko bio užasnut onim što je napisaoe pa Stevo kako i ne bi bio užasnut!!Knjiga koju još uvek držim pred sobom dok pišem ovaj prikaz je verovatno jedna od najgroznijih, najgnusnijih, najuznemiravajućih, najmučnijih knjiga koje sam u životu pročitala. Dotakla je u meni sva ona [...]

    • Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* says:

      Pet Semetary is horror-scary with its story, but the prime focus that comes across to me is overwhelming grief meeting the breaking point/barrier the brain has before it goes insane.Stephen King has said this was one of the books that frightened him the most to write. It likely meant so much to him because of being a father himself. It's actually a creepy book (so much horror isn't actually scary), but while reading it I found it wasn't always the actual moments that were what stood out as creep [...]

      Mientras uno avanza cada vez se pone mejor y mejor, hasta llegar a la tercera partes: la más intensa y horrible de todas, ahí ya no se puede soltar el libro 😵 Me encantó! No puedo no darle sus merecidas 5🌟RESEÑA EN EL BLOG: bookstwins.wordpress/2017

    • María Paz Greene F says:

      UF. Es la primera vez que leo un libro que me da miedo DE VERDAD. Es que hay veces en que NO LO PODÍA CREER. Incluso llegué a preguntarme si no sería mejor dejarlo, porque podía quedarse atrapado en mi subconsciente o algo así, jajajaRO SEGUÍ ADELANTE, y UF. No es solo el tipo de terror de lo sobrenatural, que es fuerte (FUERTE, porque está además muy bien hecho), sino que también y en especial, el recordatorio sobre la muerte, algo que es de lo más natural y a lo que todos llegaremos [...]

      Well, this was certainly the freakiest, creepiest book I've ever read. It was an intense, brilliant thriller full of scary stuff brought straight out of nightmares.It was not a long book and that certainly made me love it more because the story was not dragged on but it was straight to the point. It was not as much as gory as I expected it to be but it still managed to freak me out all the same. The storyline is that of the Creed family moving to a new house. Louis Creed, his wife Rachel and his [...]

    • FrancoSantos says:

      La muerte es un misterio. El entierro, un secreto.Este es el libro que más miedo me dio de King. En Cementerio de animales convergen el horror, la angustia y una desesperación oscura y acuciante. Es un poco pesado en algunas partes, pero les puedo asegurar que les va a helar los huesos.Se los recomiendo muchísimo. Es una maravilla del autor. Es denso, no obstante, muy bueno.

      Buddy-read with Brad.My very first book by Stephen King and I'm still in awe. This was some experience! Bwahahahahaha!First, in my edition, we are treated to an introduction by Stephen King from September 20th, 2000:[His young daughter's cat was killed by a car or truck, died and was buried. Then, some time later ]"All seemed to be well until that night, when I heard a thumping from the garage, accompanied by weeping and popping sounds like small firecrackers. I went out to investigate and found [...]

      Νομίζω οτι πρέπει να είναι το καλύτερο βιβλίο του Κινγκ, τουλάχιστον από αυτά που εχω διαβάσει.Αριστούργημα. Θα πρέπει να ήταν πολύ νέος όταν το γραφε, και τα συγγραφικά αποθέματα ήταναφθονα( μεγαλώνοντας το ποτάμι στερεύει, δυστυχώς) αλλά εκείνη την εποχη ήταν άπιαστος. Κα [...]

      Νεκρωταφίο Ζώων λοιπόν… Έχοντας διαβάσει πολλά γι αυτό το βιβλίο είχα υψηλές απαιτήσεις τόσο από άποψης γραφής όσο και από τρόμου. Με δικαίωσε!Η γραφή του είναι εξαιρετική! Ο King έχει γράψει ένα φρικιαστικότατο (όχι τρομακτικό) βιβλίο με ένα θέμα λιγααακι taboo. Σε κάποια σημε [...]

    • PUMPKINHEAD says:

      I read this when I was a teenager, and recently felt compelled to reread it. I loved it back then, and I damn I love it now. It was one of the novels that made me a Stephen King fan.There's so much Stephen King out there, maybe even too much I dare say (In all honesty, I find his more recent stuff a little hit and miss), but for me personally 'Pet Sematary' is King's ultimate masterpiece. It's the first thing I think of when someone mentions the man's name. Whenever we think of 'Masterpieces', I [...]

    • Jessica Sullivan says:

      Pet Sematary has always been one of my favorite Stephen King stories. I'm still terrified just thinking about certain scenes from the movie. I hadn't read the book since I was a kid so I figured I was long overdue for a re-read.This is, famously, the book that King himself considers the most frightening he has ever written. He has expressed regret over publishing it, claiming that it's too dark, too bleak, that it goes too far.I understand why he feels that way. Reading Pet Sematary as an adult [...]

    • Matthew says:

      Two things about this book:1. It is one of two Stephen King books I finished on 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!
