Pet Sematary ReadAlong

This book was so good that I read it very quickly. I couldn't put it down, actually, and finished way before the end of this Read Along. In true Stephen King fashion, it is filled with frights and horrors that you wish could never actually happen, and questions that you hope you never have to answer. 

Having a young child made this book even harder to read. 

The premise is this: A young couple with two kids move into a new home on a very busy street. Their cat gets hit by a truck and a neighbor helps to bring it back to life with the help of a strange indian burial ground behind their house. When their son is hit by a truck, Louis takes some drastic actions to bring back his son. The problem is, was it really his son that came back?

Ack! Yeah. Nightmare making book. I loved it. 

There are also some mentions of places and people from some of his other books that are always fun to find. Like little Easter Eggs for us fans, I guess.

I am ready for another King Read Along! What is next Jill?

Happy Reading!


  1. Yay! I'm hosting a readalong of Misery in June.

  2. "Having a young child made this book even harder to read." I was wondering how the moms in the group would feel about this one!
    I know there are plans for Misery in June (I think Care is spearheading that one). Belle and I are detouring with The Wind Up Bird Chronicles in late April and May, and then I want to do Tommyknockers later this year. What do you think?

    1. Next time, Jill, read the other comments before posting your own. Is there an emoji for smacking your forehead?

    2. Read Wind Up for book group not too long ago. Very good.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
