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.

    "Really enjoyed the story! Not as scary as I hoped"

    I am still on the hunt for a book that truly scares me. I am definitely a fan girl of the horror movie genre, but I have definitely read my fair share of horror novels, so maybe it just takes more for me to become scared. This story was still amazing though, and I am so glad I finally got to hear it. Truly a classic.

    "Great story, narration didn't fit for me."

    Salem's Lot has become a King Classic, a book I have both read and now listened to; it's a great tale. However the narration by Ron McLarty was a bad fit for me. Mr. McLarty has a glorious booming voice perfect for a thrilling action packed movie trailer but not so much for book narration, at least for my taste. I would add that after a couple hours I became used to it and the book "read" fine after some time so if you don't have time to read the book I would recommend this audio as an alternative.

    ""Blaah." -Dracula"

    Boring narration. Far from the best King novel. Hopefully it ties into The Dark Tower.

    Story
    "Slow as a turtle....."

    I love Stephen King's style of writing but it has taken me this long to read Salem's Lot. I decided to red it because I finished he Dark Tower and wanted to know more about Father Callahan of Calla Brin sturgess.
    It was a good read... A good listen. 😏 the ending was nice and it was good to experience a younger Stephen King's method and style of writing. Not as much gore as his later works but could totally see the beginnings of the Gore! I would recommend.

    "Worthwhile"

    Salem's Lot was overall pretty good. It kept my interest but was somewhat predictable. The beginning was very good, and I love the way Stephen King is so good with character descriptions. Not really what I would call scary, but you might think twice before opening your windows at night.

    "Horrible Production Quality"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Deaf people.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too distracted by the miserable sound quality to listen.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ron McLarty and Stephen King ’s performances?

    Yes, but this version really shouldn't be for sale. Too many skips.
