©1975 Stephen King; (P)2004 Simon and Schuster Inc.
"An incredibly gifted writer." (Guardian)
Stephen King's take on vampires was a surprising read. He uses all the classic elements of vampire lore, rather than invent his own (sunlight, wooden stakes, holy water etc.). He does however put his unique spin on it and coupled with McLarty's narration, the book ends up being a fun read.
There is nothing truly original here, but it is a worthwhile story for fans of King that was written in his early days.
I am a Company Rep in Central Qld. I travel around 60,000klms a year and rely on my Audiobooks to keep me company on my Country Trips!
Although the title was well known to me, for some unknown reason I had never read the book. Having enjoyed Dracula so much, I picked Salem's Lot as the entry point to Stephen King's writing.
I really enjoyed the story & the performance! I will be trying more of this Author's offerings.
