Wrong cover

My mother wanted a specific cover design that she used to have, but the book I got has a different cover than the one she wanted/the one I ordered so I’m pretty upset about that. She already has the book, just wanted the specific cover so this copy is essentially useless

Great Book-Terrible Condition

So this is probably King's best work. Period. The only complaint is that the prior owner of this book was a complete slob, seriously had to shake book out for crumbs of Doritos. Gross.

'Salem's Lot 1975

Writer Ben Mears has come to 'Salem's Lot after a childhood trauma as a boy caused him to leave. When he meets Susan Norton, and they fall in love, Mears has to battle vampires who now live in the haunted Marsten House, that was left abandoned for a long time. When the inhabitant of the Lot fall victim to the Un-Dead, Mears, and Mark Petrie, a boy who has battled the vampires, struggle to see out the next day, unaware of the horror that has afflicted everyone there. 'Salem's Lot, the full length horror novel based on the short story Jerusalem's Lot, from the 1978 collection, Night Shift, creates a sense of small town America from the 1970's that is missing these days. It is the second horror novel that Stephen King got published, after Carrie, 1974. To me, 'Salem's Lot is King's masterpiece. Robert Helliger, Narre Warren, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Best of Stephen King!

Truly terrifying, very dark and eerie. I loved it and will re read again soon. True horror and suspense. My favorite from S.King!

Classic King!

This is my second re-read. The plot continues to keep the reader gripped and on the edge of the seat!

One of the King's best

I was in my early 20's when this book first came out. I was already of fan of Kings, having read Carrie. This book did not disappoint. In fact, it scared me more than any book I'd read before and even more than some after. It made me a lifetime fan of Mr. King. I can vividly remember reading one particularly hair-raising, goose bump inducing scene sitting in my Mother's living room. Lights on, TV going, people close by - in other words, a completely non scary atmosphere. Just as I got to a really intense part, the automatic air freshner my mother had, chose that time to emit a spray - that little, "Pshsss" sound was enough to make me literally jump up off the chair. I was THAT into it - my reaction to the unexpected sound coupled with the amazing writing was enough to know I was truly in the hands of a master.

Es muy bueno

El libro es sumamente bueno, aunque nunca nos llegamos a enterar que tiene que ver Hubbert Marsten, ya que en una parte dice que es el amo de Barlow pero luego dice que era un amigo y que nunca llego a conocerlo personalmente. Pero a parte de esto es sumamente bueno y te mantiene al borde del asiento (por decirlo de esa manera).

This book is the best!!!!!

Even though this book was written in 1975, after all these years the book has really taken a toll on me. The plot is really good as well as the mini-series that came out four years after the book came out. King's second book is really scary and well worth the read. If you have not read any other novels by the Master Of Horror, then read Salem's Lot and I'll guarantee you, you'll really love it!!!!!!!!!

'Salem's Lot in The Gothic Elements of V.C. Andrews and Stephen King
The Gothic Elements of V.C. Andrews and Stephen King
Published by William Shelton • March 16, 2022

The gothic element in American literature spans many genres, and has woven an ever present thread from Washington Irving's famous equestrian, all the way down to Stephenie Meyer's interpretation of the heirs of Vlad the Impaler. Leveraging the fine works of previous generations, two Twentieth Century American authors, Stephen King, and V.C. Andrews, created characters and settings which distilled the gothic element to a rarified degree.
