What I Read: Pet Sematary by Stephen King, this genre is horror fiction, it has 542, I give it a rating of five out of five.
How It Starts: The man character is family man and doctor, Louis Creed. He wants to live a happy life with his family in their new house. The setting is a more rural neighborhood in Maine.
How It Gets Complicated: In the book Louis and his family faced with there daughter learning the finality of death and his wife refusing to face the truth of death. All the while this is happening they are being slowly surrounded by death and Louis having to make drastic decisions meant to try keep the peace.
What I Liked: I liked the book because it showed some of the nature of man. How we try to escape the thought of our lives truely ending when we die by making many different versions of an afterlife. Or how we wish for something or are willing to do something terrible to end the pain. It also shows how we can avoid something based entirely on a bad experience or fear. The author made a good choice in not watering down, in how he told all the gruesome truth of it all in terrifing detail. What made the book enjoyable is that you fell in love with small family and it was easy to fall in love many of the other characters. It was also brilliantly worded and used a very wide vocabulary.
What I Disliked: I somewhat disliked how the wife was somewhat played as a bad guy.
Recommendation: I would recommend this books to more adult readers that are phased by dark topics and detailed descriptions of gory scenes. Readers that enjoy blatant honest about death and mans nature would enjoy this book.
