Thousands of miles away from the small township of ‘Salem’s Lot, two terrified people, a man and a boy, still share the secrets of those clapboard houses and tree-lined streets. They must return to ‘Salem’s Lot for a final confrontation with the unspeakable evil that lives on in the town.
The famous Salems Lot by Stephen King, I finally read it and oh boy was it disappointing ? unfortunately it was. I had high hopes for this book which it didn’t live up to. This one is a Stephen King classic which oh boy I really wished to like but didn’t. Getting into this book I really wanted to love this book but it turned out to be a book which I didn’t care about so much.
The writing style in this one didn’t feel like quit Stephen King which might have something to do with it being one of his early works. But it didn’t give the horror vibe which almost every Stephen King book does give the reader.
There were some good moments which really made the chills run down your spine but there were very few of these moments which is again very disappointing at least for me.
The plot itself is amazing but I really had a hard time with connecting it. I don’t know why because Im a huge fan of horror stories which involves something bad going on in a rural town.
The ending in my opinion was the best thing in this whole book. Need to say that the ending was very fast which is a typical Stephen King thing which happens in every book and story he writes. And which I love.
However I need to give this book a lots of points for giving us a pictures how vampires should look like and not just some Twilight bull shit.
This book isn’t so good as many other Stephen King books but it is of course a book which every Stephen King fan MUST read.
To be fully honest with you, I need to say that this book is my least favourite book right after “Elevation” written by Stephen King (so far).
I give this book 2 / 5
