Now a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, and Amy Seimetz!

Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller Pet Sematary, a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and beloved novels.

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. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed’s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing…as is evidenced by the makeshift graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better

    Forgot how great this book was until I reread it some 22 years ago.

    By Annehogue
    I loved this book!! I’ve read a lot of his work and know the magic that is Stephen King, but this one left me breathless several times after reading through an encounter experienced by one of the characters! A very moving and compelling novel!
  • A great book to read

    This book is really exciting. If you are bored and have nothing to do this book will keep you engaged for a long time.
  • Fantastic!

    By MantislikesScooters
    The Book was fantastic and I have to say I am a little bit more disappointed in the movie now. Hope the new one is good!
  • Great book!

    My absolute favorite book from King
  • Terrifying

    By stopstealinmynickname
    This and “The Outsider”, I think are the 2 scariest Stephen King books. Not exactly scary while you’re reading, but later. When you’re laying in bed thinking about the books. About what it’d be like if you could bring your child back, Would you? After reading Pet Sematary, I don’t know if I would...
  • I love this book!

    Such a good read. It kept me company at my desk at work. Good plot and am so excited to now watch the 1989 pet semetary movie and now the soon 2019 rendition 🖤
  • Great book!

    Another King classic! Great storytelling! Keeps your attention and hard to put down! The last part of the book was so well done! Loved it!
  • It will come home.

    By JoshuaAllenMason
    Another amazing book by Stephen King. Like always—I prefer this over the movie. If you liked the movie—then please check this book out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
  • Stephan Kings scariest book

    Read it for yourself. This book is gut wrenching, I mean terrifying. And I’ve read The Shining. That book has NOTHING on this one.
