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.

    "Good"

    Good story with an extremely slow start. I don't think I'd recommend it to everyone but if you are comfortable with a lot of slow set up, this book is for you.

    Story
    "Not sure?"

    The story was ok, but I never found myself anxious to return to the book. Also, the author never "hooked" me, and I felt like I was forcing myself to get to the end. The story felt slightly dated but I'm happy with my purchase. It was still a story I enjoyed, and I still love Stephen King.

    Story
    "I just didn't like this one."

    The narrator was great, but the story just didn't touch me. I can see how the elements of devil worship and child sacrifice would terrify a 1980s audience but to me it all came across as silly.

    Story
    "Great book to listen to"

    No one does it better than the King: a haunted manor house, a troubled town, and a bit of folklore that’s more than a little infectious.

    "Vampirically Good"

    Narration was great, and the story was perfect on a long trip up to Maine.

    Story
    "Classic Stephen King with brilliant narration"

    With such a large cast of characters, it could be easy to get lost in an audiobook like this. But the narrator does such an amazing job of building distinct characterization among all the different players. Not to mention, the book is spooky as hell.

    Story
    "Skip the intro!"

    Don’t listen to the intro, especially if you don’t know what the story is about. He totally lays out the plot ruining his own book!

    The intro to the book is boring, Sad to say. I get the concept that he’s trying to build the story by giving you all the snippets of information about the people in the town but there are so many parts of the book that just drone on. He gives you a full feel of a sleepy town because your fall asleep during it.

    The book picks up towards the end it starts getting better with the slow parts being spread out through it all and all three stars a bit much

    Story
    "Boring & Tedious Beyond Words"

    I love King. I really do. I've read It, The Shining, The Mist, and a compilation of his short stories. I found them all riveting. But this...my God what a disappointment. Needlessly detailed, rambling, and utterly without suspense or scares for about 85% of it. I relatively enjoyed it up until you realize "what they're dealing with".....which believe me has been done to death since the horror genre was invented (pun intended). Characters are introduced with a PAINFUL amount of detail, only to serve no purpose at all in the story. How is this the same man who wrote so many amazing stories. I kept waiting for it to get better or at least decent....it doesn't. Oh well...time for a Dean Koontz novel after thus snooze fest.

    "Awesome Book"

    This is one of my favorite stories that I have ever read. Listening to it on Audible, made me enjoy it even more. Ron McLarty did an awesome job at reading this story. Must have!!!
