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.

    "Now the movie..."

    I had heard of Salems Lot but never read the book or for that matter seen the movie, so it was new to me. I have been listening to audio books for a while now and this one was a great one that I will enjoy again. The narrator, Ron McLarty was great and distinguished each character in a way that I could imagine the scene with good detail. Now I'll watch the movie and relive the story again and see how it unfolds compared to the the audio book. All said and done, I had a great listening experience and can't wait to dig into another audio book by Stephen King, highly recommend!

    "Terrifying"

    My mom read this book in college and she always enjoys horror. She is the reason I love horror. Although it is slow to build it is perfect for the story. Getting to know the characters and then to the build of fear of possibility. I have never enjoyed listening so thoroughly. The narrator does an ex

    "Salem's Lot needs a sequel."

    Salem's Lot is my favorite Stephen King book. Why? Because it terrifies me! I wish it had a second part. Long and terrifying.

    "Classic King"

    x without a doubt one of the best books ever written by Stephen King. I would strongly recommend this audiobook because the narrator was on point, and the story was too.

    Story
    "Another classic by Stephen King"

    The the start of the book was a bit slow and somewhat uneventful. Although this was to get you to know the characters. Rest assured the book does pick up and becomes more and more exciting and is well worth the wait. This book isn't not like your modern sexy vampire book that we see so much nowadays which is a bonus. Stephen King really lays out the scenery, emotions and mood in this book were you can really feel what the characters are feeling and seeing. The Narrator was pretty good and did well with this reading. I recommend setting the narrator speed to 1.15 x though because like most audio books the narration is slow and to make the intense parts more fast paced it's nice to I take as much information about the scene as quick as possible. All in all I recommend this book!

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    Great book. I read this book many years ago. Decided to listen to it this time and it did not disappoint! I couldn't stop listening. Would even listen to it as I traveled to the grocery store.

    Story
    "Dracula for modern times"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Salem's Lot to be better than the print version?

    Surprisingly yes. I did not think that possible. The audio captured precisely the tone and feel that I believe the story required.


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

    The protagonists entering the Marsden house


    What does Ron McLarty and Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration adds an additional emotional punch that I did not recall when I first read the book.


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

    Ben Mears. He started off trying to exorcise his personal demons and had to step up to facing a nearly undefeatable foe. And, he still did not back down.


    Any additional comments?

    I had forgotten how REALLY GOOD this book was. This is why Stephen King has become a household name since the 1970's. Get this book...you won't regret it. You may lose some sleep, but you won't regret it.

    "Fabulously gripping story"

    Salem's Lot is a story that grabs the listener from the start. Ron McLarty's reading keeps the listener at the edge of their seat. Awesome!
