He's a tough kid. As we remember from him beating up the bully a bunch of pages back. Mark plays with his monster figurines. He knows about monsters, which is going to help him out.

Roy McDougall comes home to the sound of crying and figures out that his wife is hitting the baby. He is unhappy with his sordid, ugly life.

Luckily for him, he'll be a vampire soon. Parkins hears from the FBI. They tell him about Ben's wife dying.

No real other information. Parkins is cranky about it. If he were a vampire, he wouldn't worry. Dud Rodgers out at the dump has an odd conversation with a guy who talks about how he loves wolves and hates dogs.

The guy hypnotizes Dud and tells him he can have Ruthie Crockett. Then he turns him into a vampire.

In his June Playboy interview, the interviewer mentioned that because it was his favorite, King was planning a sequel, [3] but King has said on his website that because The Dark Tower series already continued the narrative in Wolves of the Calla and Song of Susannah , he felt there was no longer a need for a sequel.

They are kind of a dying organism right now. The story seems sort of down home to me. I have a special cold spot in my heart for it!

A year later, they decide to return, and the story of the events that lead to their flight is told. Mears hopes to stay at the Marsten house.

However it has already been bought by one Richard Straker and Kurt Barlow. The two ostensibly plan to open an antique furniture shop in the town, and live at the house.

Only Straker is ever seen publicly. Unknown to all, Barlow is an ancient vampire and Straker is his servant. This leads to a number of macabre events occurring, most notably a child, Ralph Glick, disappears implied sacrificed by Straker , and his heretofore healthy older brother Daniel mysteriously dies of anemia.

He turns other residents, including his own mother, Marjorie Glick. However the hunt comes at great cost. Petrie escapes, but Norton falls victim to Barlow, who turns her.

She is subsequently found by the others in the group at the house, and is staked through the heart and destroyed by Mears. In his escape, Petrie incapacitates Straker, leaving him bloody; Barlow subsequently kills and drains him, unable to resist.

Callahan tries to drive Barlow off with his cross when the vampire seizes Petrie. Barlow overwhelms him and forces him to drink his blood. Burke subsequently dies in the hospital from a second heart attack, and Cody is killed by a lethal booby trap Barlow has his vampires set at his daytime location, which Cody discovers with Petrie.

Only Mears and Petrie now remain. In a dramatic sunset confrontation, Mears stakes and destroys Barlow just as he rises. Mears and Petrie then flee the town.

The vampires subsequently turn the last remaining residents though a few sense what has been happening and flee during that final day , rendering the town a virtual ghost town, seemingly empty and abandoned during daylight hours as the vampires sleep, hiding from the sun.

The epilogue ties the story to the prologue. After recovering somewhat from their ordeal, Mears and Petrie return to the town a year later. While teaching a high school Fantasy and Science Fiction course at Hampden Academy , King was inspired by Dracula , one of the books covered in the class.

In the Introduction to the audiobook recording that Stephen King read himself, he says it was he who said, "Probably he'd land in New York and be killed by a Taxi Cab, like Margaret Mitchell in Atlanta" and that it was his wife who suggested a rural setting for the book.

But if he were to show up in a sleepy little country town, what then? The story felt so fluid and natural, I was so easily swept up into the world of the novel and taken along for the ride.

It was definitely a slow build, which I was worried about at the start because I tend to get bored easily if there aren't a lot of things happening.

But soon I just let myself be taken along at the pace of the story and I found myself completely addicted to the plot and the characters. As it was quite slow at the beginning, everything seemed so much more vivid in my mind.

It also built a heap of tension and suspense as small mysterious events eventually grew into full-blown excitement. When I say things picked up speed as the novel progressed, I really mean it.

At the beginning I was focusing on the development of the town and characters, but before I knew it was all about the action and excitement of the novel.

There are so many characters in this book that all add to the story, but we really got to know the main characters very well.

They were all such well-developed, interesting and charming characters, I couldn't help but to love them. They formed this kind of team in trying to save the town, which, for some reason, made me insanely happy.

I think I just really love team efforts and good old crime solving, so they definitely appealed to that part of me. Being so invested in certain characters also made me even more addicted to the story, because I was worried for their safety and whether they were going to survive.

The book slowly increase the tension and the vampires are so creepy! Don't bite me just because I only gave this one 3 stars! I remember reading this as a child and thinking to myself, "OMG when is something going to actually happen?!

However, I will say that while I still think he CAN be overly detailed fight me , I do appreciate that these all develop the characters and give yo Don't bite me just because I only gave this one 3 stars!

However, I will say that while I still think he CAN be overly detailed fight me , I do appreciate that these all develop the characters and give you a detailed imaging of the world he is creating.

Also, I had to also giggle at the fact that King used a "that's what she said" joke which just reminds us of how long this joke has been around.

Did Mr. Straker and his shop remind anyone else a little bit of Leland Guant? Just me? Listen, I'm a huge King fan and am always impressed with his writing.

And as a King fan I have my likes and dislikes of his work. I also think that as you read a lot by one author, you determine how you feel based on how you may have felt about another piece of said author's work.

I still have a lot of love for this book but I don't think I'd reread it another time. I am glad that I did see how it resonated now compared to as when I was a kid.

A better appreciation of the build and story, but still not my favorite. I knew it. I knew that I had to read this book years and years ago, before the big vampire invasion.

But for some reasons I never did and now I regret it. I liked this book, but I was not interested in it. Not sure if that makes sense.

And I am really sorry to rate Salem's Lot only 3 stars since it's one of the most loved books of the King. I guess I picked the wrong time to read it and I didn't really connect with the characters.

I also hate when I can predict a twist, which happened during this I knew it. I also hate when I can predict a twist, which happened during this reading and it's quite rare for me when it comes to King's books.

Recommended for old-school horror lovers! Not my favorite King. I think the biggest thing is that that book doesn't give you a chance to rest between scenes.

Also the women were given very little importance I felt and done away with in this book. It would have been great to have some of them for the final fight or the list of survivors.

I also think that the book at times was scary, but not as scary as King could have made it. There were also some minor plot holes here and there too.

We follow a writer, Ben, as he goes back to Salem's Lot. He has fond memories of the town from when he stayed there with his aunt as a boy.

He returns in order to write and maybe lay to rest a house called the Marsten House had on him too. Ben meets a young woman, Susan, and they start to date.

When two young boys go missing, with one found later out of his mind the town starts to wonder if Ben could be linked to at least Susan's mother does and then Ben starts to reveal what he found out about the last owner of the house.

Quickly things start to go bump in the night. I can't really say that I had a favorite of anyone in this book besides Mark. That kid had guts.

King always knows how to write kids. Mark gets hit with a lot and honestly reminds me a bit of the young boy in "Desperation" who dealt with his family being murdered and still going on to confront evil.

Ben felt colorless to me, Susan too for that matter. I think most of the adults did. King also spent time developing some characters and not others.

For example, Father Callahan felt developed to me, but others like Matt and Jimmy felt only two dimensional. I really wish that women had been given a bigger role in this one.

The one character we can see as a co-lead would be Susan. And Susan was there to build up Ben it seemed and that was it. We have Ben saying things like he liked Susan, maybe even loved her.

Gee thanks dude. I also wish that King had spent more time building up Barlow and Richard Straker. They are the villains in this piece but they felt like dime store villains.

I wanted to see the supreme daddy of vampires. Speaking on that, I have to say that this wasn't that scary. If you are a horror fan I think you will like this book fine.

The writing was okay, the flow was off though from beginning to end. At first the book promises to be a story about a haunted or evil house.

And then the house really is not that important to the story. We focus on the vampires and the house just felt like a house and that was it. I wanted to get more of a sense of menace from that location.

I wanted to feel as if Marsten House was insane. The world building is just a typical one with vampires and them dying by stake, afraid of holy water and crosses.

I was hoping for some mythology aspects that would be pretty cool to read about, but nothing much here. The ending was just okay. We are left with the survivors back ready to take on the Lot.

King includes two short stories about the beginning of Salem's Lot and another that talks about what happened to the town two years after the events of that book.

Mar 07, Chris rated it really liked it Shelves: fof-buddies , read-owned-hardcover. It has been years since I originally read this book, but after all this time, it didn't disappoint.

I live in the country where it gets very dark at night and the woods surrounding the house and area can be somewhat spooky. One friend said I was moving into a "Stephen King house" when I first moved in.

Well, when reading Salem's Lot, let's just say I didn't want to go outside at night. As far as this volume, it was a nice treat.

The photographs were excellent and added to the dark theme of the bo It has been years since I originally read this book, but after all this time, it didn't disappoint.

The photographs were excellent and added to the dark theme of the book. The two short stories were a nice touch as well.

I like how it was told through letters and diary entries, reminding me of Stoker's Dracula, which the Salem's Lot novel was inspired by.

It also had a deep Lovecraft feel to it. The deleted scenes were ok. Interesting without being essential. I beleive that the original Salem's Lot editors did a good job by filtering this out or making the changes to the eventual published novel.

It was cool to see some of the early writing in the novel and a variety on some of the material.

Especially the rats. They were pretty nasty. But I think it was a good idea to filter them out of the story because as nasty gory as they were, the original tension in the novel served its purpose very well without rats.

They actually became a distraction. So like with the majority of DVD bonus scenes, these were enjoyable for a glance through, but not important to the story experience.

On a further re-read, I'll probably skip the deleted scenes. View all 3 comments. Nov 26, Aric Cushing added it.

One of the best vampire books ever written. Bar none. End of story. Thank you very much. Seeing an author's take on the 'vampire' genre is always great, seeing King's take on it, brilliant.

Since he's written a sequel to The Shining, maybe it's time for a sequel to Salem's Lot? View all 8 comments.

He gazed at it, fascinated. Warring emotions crossed his face with kaleidoscopic swiftness. Ben Mears returns to Jerusalem lot after many years to write a novel based on the creepy experience he had in the marsten house as a child.

Once settled he tries to rent the house only to discover it has been sold after remaining vacant for decades. The new owners appear shifty, one away on a buying trip in New York.

A child disappears, a dog is found hung on the cemetery gates and people start dropping like flies. But nobody believes in vampires It features numerous characters that collectively come together giving the small community vibe.

The chapters roll from one person to another, the warm and likeable to the cold and murderous. And exactly what I felt during this entire book!

Starting this book I vaguely remember I was never going to read it, but the reason was unclear! Lost Alone. How could I ever have forgotten?

The trepidation I once held for Vampires??? This epic horror made me feel like a little girl again, to afraid to turn to the next page, but to damn prying to stop form actually truing the page!

King just have this addictive style in this book that could keep you going no matter the terror that grew in your body, heart or soul! I am not removing my sliver cross necklace for a long, long time!

Excellent work Mr. My favourite part, because it was absolutely the scariest and that's what I was looking for in this book , was the scene where Crockett's men were making the delivery to the store and then the Marsten house.

My heart still pounds a little with the tension of that scene. I'm a pretty picky horror reader because I'm so hard to scare when there's no tension ratchetting music before something jumps out from off camera.

Horror movies don't have to work nearly as hard to get me jumping, which is why I'm really looking forward to watching one or both of the tv miniseries that were made after Wikipediaing it I was very interested to read that the version was actually filmed in country Victoria, Australia.

The edition I read, ISBN , was extra fantastic because they'd included the two short stories from the Lot's universe, One for the Road and Jerusalem's Lot , as well as interesting background straight from King in the introduction and afterword, AND a pile of deleted scenes showing the different directions King was thinking of taking the book in.

Reading the two related short stories right after finishing the book was the best time to read them. If I had unknowingly waited till I got to that short story collection somewhere down the line I'm mostly reading them in publication order , it might have taken me a bit before I realised One for the Road was a Lot story and it's possible I wouldn't have enjoyed the epistolary Jerusalem's Lot as much as I did because I wouldn't have picked up on the little bits of background it included.

There were a few scenes that I think would have worked better than what ended up getting published at least for me. I liked King's original name for Barlow, Sarlinov; I was really creeped out by the rat hordes; I thought Ben and Susan's original discussion in Ben II was better, plus we get more information about the book Ben is writing and I thought that was interesting; the same with Ben's discussion with Matt over a plate of spaghetti; the deleted scenes of Dud visiting Ruthie Crockett and Randy McDougall visiting his mother were very disturbing and I guess that's probably why King omitted them; Barlow using a tape recording instead of a letter was nearly enough to make me jump; Callahan's original fate was much more gory and upsetting for the others when they find him, but of course then he wouldn't have been able to make appearances in future books I wonder if King was already contemplating that and that's why he changed what happened?

For me, 'Salem's Lot lost something with the removal of most of the rats, with those deleted rats scenes included I probably would have given this five stars and actually contemplated whether I might have had nightmares that involved swarming rats in dark cellars, as it was I just didn't feel the horror the way I wanted to.

On to The Stand!!!! Wasn't impressed with the directorial changes or the way things like the sight of blood had to be removed to appease the television censors.

Straker was nothing like the way I imagined him from King's writing - he was too polite, too nice to the townspeople, with no hint of menace beneath the smile, and also seemed nervous of Barlow, an impression I definitely didn't get from the book.

I also didn't like the choice to turn Barlow into a physical monster with no power of speech. The hissing noises he made while being staked reminded me of Darth Vader's death scene mixed with the sounds my dog makes when he wants my attention.

I think a monster who appears to be a charming older man who can stroll the streets hunting victims any night he wants is far more scary than one who can only be seen by those he intends to kill because his appearance can not fail to go unnoticed.

I was also disappointed by the cuts made to Susan's part - even though the result ended up being the same, it felt like a case of 'get the weak woman away from the danger so that the men can fight it'.

Overall, I'd give that adaptation 1. Finished the adaptation and compared to the previous one, it was fantastic. Much more faithful to the book, what changes the director decided to make made much more sense to me and kinda made the director of the previous series seem like a liar.

He said, for example, that the final scene with Barlow had to be moved back to the Marsten house because it didn't make sense otherwise according to a quote on the Wikipedia page from an interview he made about the making of the movie ; it was in Eva's basement, where it belonged, in this version and it worked perfectly.

The trees were completely wrong - evergreen gum trees everywhere - making the wide shots of the town completely unrecognisable as being located in Maine no sign of gum trees in a picture of Bangor in winter shown on the Maine Wikipedia page.

But, because of the filming location I got to play 'pick the Australian star' with all bar one of the supporting cast members - Dan Byrd is American, everyone else was Australian with varying degrees of fame.

I would give this adaptation 4 stars out of 5, it was about as good as the source material with a few tweaks and updates due to the 30 years in between.

His characters here, unlike in Carrie, include staples of future works: a tormented writer, a loved but not quite holistically understood child, an imperfect but lovable priest.

His collection of characters working together here resembles more broadly future works. The setting, a small town in Maine, will of course go on to become his signature.

The enigmatic and mysterious introduction to a villain who is progressively revealed — revealed to be more sinister than initially imagined — is classic Stephen King.

A smart move by King. While this is going on, the hero of the story, Ben Mears the writer, arrives to the Lot his childhood home to face fears he never did when he was a boy.

In the second half of the book, the committee of Ben, Mark a young and bold boy , Matt teacher , Jimmy physician , and Father Callahan forms to face off against the evil that has deeply infected the town.

The evil not birthed, but unhinged, by Barlow and Straker. The fears long undealt with, and the fears in front of our very eyes right now.

King has said himself that when he started writing the story of Dracula, but set in a small town in Maine, he expected the vampires would win.

The characters he has breathed life into had more courage than he initially expected, and he allowed them to fight back in more profound ways than he had intended.

King made the right move, and the novel he wrote, while frightening one scene still stains the back of my eyelids two weeks after reading it , is elevated beyond pulp or horror genres.

It is great, and affecting. None of which were essential, all of which added to the rich experience of reading my favourite writers 2nd novel.
