Publisher's Summary

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 lingers...like the graveyard in the woods near the Creeds' 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 promises...and 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....

Critic Reviews

"The narrator is Michael C. Hall ("Dexter"), who can now add an Earphones Award to his resume.... 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." (AudioFile)

THIS is what Audible was made for!

This is a fantastic book. I love King, and have read most of his books. I would go as far as to say that he is my favorite author. I love a few authors more than others that I read, but King is the king.

I first read Pet Sematary right after it came out in hardback. I was in high school, and the book really affected me. Many of King's books have had a significant amount of impact on me, but this one....this one is on a whole other level. The concepts that are dealt with in this book are beyond nightmares. You know what is going to happen rather early on in the story, but you just can't believe that he is REALLY going to go there. I mean, really?? Wow... Heebie Jeebies times 100.

The best thing about my experience with this story this time around was the narration of Michael C Hall. He was fantastic!! I know that he had a thriving TV career with Dexter, and I'm sure he has come across other ways to earn a living since then, and probably never needs to work another day in his life, but he is a MASTERFUL narrator. This book fit his talents perfectly, and left me wanting more from him. Excellent!
