Somehow, one of my all-time favorite classic horror stories just didn’t stand up to time and my adult reading habits on this re-read. The scenes I most enjoyed as a teen were as creepily nightmarish as I remembered – [spoiler] Mike Ryerson digging Danny Glick’s grave, Danny at Mark’s window, the boy...

Not my favorite King. I think the biggest thing is that that book doesn't give you a chance to rest between scenes. Also the women were given very little importance I felt and done away with in this book. It would have been great to have some of them for the final fight or the list of survivors. I a...

It had been a while since I read Stephen King, it was like returning to an old friend. This novel was the second he published, and one of the classics I had not read. I really enjoyed this tale of vampires, and even though it was published more than 30 years ago, I think it has aged very well. It...

A struggling author returns to the town he grew up in to revisit some skeletons of his past for a new book. He finds romance, friendship and more evil then he can deal with as townspeople start disappearing. Stephen King can really describe a setting and get you settled in. He gets the reader th...

I wasn't as thrilled with this book as I was the first time I read it.I didn't like the fact that towards the end the character's became really very transparent and cliched and so did the storytelling. The beginning of this novel was very strong as the players figured out what was going on...but the...

Great read! I had not read it since my teen years, and it still is the only King novel to scare the bejesus out of me. Seriously. You can keep your teenage angst vampires, give me the real ones that tap at your window, looking for blood.Now, as King writes mega-epics, you look at what he packed i...

I've read this book more times than any other King novel to date aside from The Shining and The Stand. One would think my enamoration with this 1975 novel about vampires taking over a small town in Maine would lessen or die down due to reading it so many times, but in fact I always find more things ...
MUNDO NO ESCRITO rated it 4 years ago
El libro es intrigante y adictivo desde principio a fin. King va llevando la historia, y manejando la tensión hacia un punto culminante único y desesperante. Tenía mis dudas con respecto al tema "vampiros" pero deja en evidencia que no hay nada sobre lo que King no pueda escribir y deja también en c...

ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE BEST.Vampires in Salem's lot surely beat all the modern vampires. Pure horror. It's awesome.
