Review: Pet Sematary

Source: Goodreads

Title: Pet Sematary
Author: Stephen King
Publisher: Signet / Penguin Books

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐¹/₂

The road in front of Dr. Louis Creed's rural Maine home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets.

Louis has recently moved from Chicago to Ludlow with his wife Rachel, their children and pet cat. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs and cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway.

Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed.

This book broke me a little.

Stephen King has a way of getting me so attached that it almost physically hurts to finish one his books. I delayed finishing this book for 2 days because I was that much attached to its characters.

I went into this book only knowing it had something to do with dead animals coming to life, I didn't know anything else, let alone that it would make me grieve with the characters. The plot was really well made and I was so happy to see some familiar names like Jerusalem’s Lot and Derry whilst reading this book. It made me miss IT so much…

The characters… Oh the characters…
Like always Stephen King did not disappoint.

Louis Creed - he became my Baby so fast you have no idea. My heart clenched just thinking of him and how much he went through. He is such a sweetheart and a loving father and friend…

Rachel Creed - I really liked her even though she had some issues she needed to work on. But she was a loving mother that's for sure.

Jud - He always gave me the creeps but I still managed to like him and care for him. I feel like he needs to know when to stop though.

All in all I really loved the plot, the progression of things and the characters. Also for once, so far, I didn't really have a problem with the ending even though I need a sequel or a novella to know what happened next. And yes I know this book is way too old for king to write anything else to do with it but a girl can dream. So far this book is on my top 3 of my favorite Stephen King books and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have their heart broken like I did.
