Never before available on unabridged audio! Dexter's Michael C. Hall reads this classic horror story described by Publishers Weekly as the "most frightening novel Stephen King has ever written." When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job, and moves his family to the idyllic, rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow's tranquility, there's an undercurrent of danger that lingerslike the graveyard in the woods near the Creed's home, where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Behind the "pet sematary," there is another burial ground, one that lures people to it with seductive promisesand ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there-one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. An ominous fate befalls anyone who dares tamper with this forbidden place, as Louis is about to discover for himself

Professional reviews

"Stephen King's haunting 1983 novel finally has an unabridged audiobook version. The narrator is Michael C. Hall ("Dexter"), who can now add an Earphones Award to his resume. Though the horror elements are always looming, Hall warmly portrays the all-too-human Creed family, full of love for each other but also flawed, damaged, and uncertain. He molds Louis Creed into an imperfect but sympathetic protagonist and effectively changes pitch to give Louis's wife, Rachel, and their two kids believable voices. For added texture, Hall manages a solid Maine accent as the Creeds' kindly old neighbors. Hall's narration captures the surprising humanity found on the page, but his voice becomes appropriately grim as the story barrels toward the inevitable darkness. A.T.N.
