I read Pet Sematary a long time ago as I love most of Steven King, and to be honest, the book scared the crap out of me (which believe me is rare); I saw the movie and although it was good also, the book made more of an impact on me.      Steven King sometimes draws out his novels a little too much for me; I like action right through without lots of "down time" and this book fit the bill.  I won't waste your time by telling you what the story was about, as …

Though it seems to lose pace in the latter half, a compelling concept and skillful writing keep, "Pet Sematary," afloat.

Although the story of this one is really predictable, Stephen King really plunges a lot of emotional depth here, making it one of my favorites of his.
