Salem's LotBen Mears has returned to Jerusalem's Lot in the hopes that living in an old mansion long the subject of town lore will help him cast out his own devils and provide inspiration for his new book But when two young boys venture into the woods and only one comes out alive Mears begins to realize that there may be something sinister at work and that his hometown is under siege by forces of darkness far beyond his control Please Note The audio uality has been sourced from tape Overall of course an enjoyable page turning read but I thought some of the book’s revelations didn’t really measure up to the tremendous suspense that was created throughout the first half of the book and I found the major character’s sudden and successful embrace of Catholicism and horror movie clichés as a solution to the town’s “problems” at times fairly ridiculous While a little shorter than many of King’s books at just 653 pages I still think ‘Salem’s Lot has the typical Stephen King problem of being slightly too long with a few too many characters introduced to keep track of My biggest issue though is that the first half of the novel is much compelling than the second half which drags on for uite a while after the book has drifted into fairly obvious how things are going to play out territory
