A place where the family could settle; the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Chicago. Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat. But behind the house and far away from the road: that was safe. Just a carefully cleared path up into the woods where generations of local children have processed with the solemn innocence of the young, taking with them their dear departed pets for burial. A sad place maybe, but safe. Surely a safe place. Not a place to seep into your dreams, to wake you, sweating with fear and foreboding.Read Less

This is the scariest King book ever. Dr. Louis Creed and his wife Rachel think that a quiet small town in Maine is the best place to raise their two small children. After the family cat is killed by a car, his elder neighbor tells him the legend of the local Pet Semetary. The ancient Indian burial ground that has the power to bring back the dead but the ground has gone sour, whatever goes in comes back wrong. Louis doesn't heed his neighbor's warning and decides to hide the cat's death and buries him in the cemetary. The cat does come back, but he comes back not the same. He's nastier than before and stinks. Soon tragedy strikes again but this time Gage gets struck and killed by a fast moving truck. This time Louis decides to bring back his son and bury him in the cemetary. Bad move... You'll want to keep your lights on at night after reading this one.
