Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Loved every second! Not a dull moment!"

    This Stephen King classic is a fine example of his ability to take a book like Dracula and make it his own. It gives a full hats off to Bram Stoker while maintaining the flavor that is 100% Stephen King (kind of a metallic taste, like blood).

    So often with Stephen King I believe I'm gonna know exactly how the story is going to go. Whether it be from seeing the movie or reading a review and I get so pleasantly surprised with how different and so much better it ends up being. This is no exception.

    The performance by Ron McLarty is impeccable.

    Story
    "Vampires are nut merely a virus or a chance "product of evolution""

    Vampires by their very nature are undead and intrinsically evil; there is no such thing as a "good" vampire. Since vampires on not simply a product of a virus, poison or merely another randomly evolved species (the latter is ridiculous when considering vampires are undead), the malevolence of vampires inspires an instinctive irrational fear of more than mere death in the physical sense. A lack of faith and/or a fallen sinful state can doom one's soul. Stephen King's Salem's Lot is an excellent vampire horror story in the classic style where the conflict is founded on the battle between good and evil, and the faithful servants of God and the slaves of the evil one.

    "Looking for Dark Tower Backstory"

    I have read the Dark Tower series a few time and was always curious about the cross over character(s) from this story.

    I was not disappointed. While clearly a dated story this was very well done. You care about the characters and what happens to the town.

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a more modern day Dracula, enjoys stories about the non-sparkly version of Vampires, or like me wants a little more back story to King's Dark Tower series.

    Story
    "Lives up to the hype."

    I have no idea how I never read this, having been an avid Stephen King fan since my teenage years. King's work had lost its luster for me over the years as his editors grew more hesitant and the author grew lazier and more self referential. This work brought back my admiration . King is the master. He earned that title with this book.. Delicious.

    Story
    "Fantastic plot great acting, meh characters"

    I really enjoy just about all of Steven King's work. and I particularly enjoyed this one as well. But in this book he interjected himself into not only the main characters but into just about every character in the story and it makes them a bit too predictable in terms of we already know what they will do before it happens.

    But other than that it is a 100% original piece written about what would have happened if Dracula came to the US in 1975. and while it might be dated I quite enjoyed the scenes from the 70's in that it's something different that I never got to experience and he draws them quite well going through daily life.

    If you want a scary book with a good deep story look no further.

    "Great vampire story"

    This is my first book review on Audible. This is a great vampire story and I love the small town setting. It's perfect for this story line and for a big city girl like me, it takes me out of my element. Now I'm scared to visit any small and dying towns! Not really, but it will make me a little more cautious. You can tell that this book is written in the 70's and it's a little dated but main concept of vampires never changes and it still will put fear in your heart.

    Entering supernatural world can be as natural as breathing. This is somehow believable throughout. Bravo!
