  •  Salem's Lot (14+ / 0-)

    Stephen King is a terrific writer.   I can't say that I have loved everything of his that I have read.   But there are several of his books and stories that I find to be truly remarkable.  And Salem's Lot is most definitely one of those.

    Salem's Lot was my first exposure to Stephen King and I read it over the course of a few nights one late October many years ago.  I lived alone that autumn and I must admit that there were times when I found myself averting my gaze from my darkened windows lest I see....well you'll just to read the book and find out for yourself.

    Like MichiganChet has said one of Salem' Lot's best features is King's portrayal of the life and characters of a small town.
