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.

    "Great book, terrible narrator"

    McLarty makes every character sound like a smarmy hillbilly. The character building suffers greatly from his dialogue

    "Very Good"

    This is one of King's earlier books and he definitely has a different writing style than some of his later books. The plot is overall very good though a tad slow at times. Definitely worth listening too and the narrator was great.

    "Enjoyed it twice"

    Lots of writing depth to appreciate and with good scares. King wrote this early on and reminds you how talented he was at the start of his career . Needs to be remade as a 10 chapter mini series ....Netflix should explore.

    Story
    "Truly Gripping Terror"

    I wasn't sure what to expect from Salem's Lot; I've never read a Stephen King novel before, and all I knew about the book was that it was about vampires. Over the course of the dozen or so hour's of this book, I was enthralled, horrified and ultimately... enraptured by King's writing style, the chilling plot, and the amazing performance from the voice actor. If you weren't sure where to start when it comes to Stephen King, this is as good a spot as any.

    "Another great King book"

    I have read and listened to a bunch of Stephen King books and this one does not disappoint. Interesting characters that you feel like you know and are rooting for. Story line is creepy with just enough reality to give you pause to say 'could this really happen'?
    Good stuff!

    Story
    "A spooky good time"
    Where does Salem's Lot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first King novel and I loved it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Salem's Lot?

    I was in love with King's central question "What if Count Dracula came to rural Maine?"


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Stephen King – was your favorite?

    The protagonist Ben. Mr. McLarty's voice is Ben for me, now.


    If you could take any character from Salem's Lot out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Definitely Mark. That kid had guts


    Any additional comments?

    I chose this book because I wanted a mood-setting novel for the Halloween season. What i got was full immersion into one of Stephen King's worlds. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    "Amazing book and amazing narration"

    This was an amazing book made even better with the narration it kept me listening for 3 day until it was done good for young adults and adults wouldn't really recommend it for young children

    Story
    "Dracula in the Semi-Modern Era"

    Like it says it is a bit dated and has many similarities to Stoker's Dracula. I personally think that Stoker's is better but King does the mythos a great service with this story. If you know Dracula then you can anticipate some of the story's progression. I still recommend it even though this is, so far, the least scary King book I have read.

    "Classic Stephen King. A little simple in its story"

    A great read for the teen reader, a little simple for the adult reader. Definitely one of King's early books, but still a fun read for anyone.
