What the community says about 'Salem's Lot
- "Society has really changed the way we look at vampires and I didn't think this was going to be scary. Most of the time, someone is falling in love with one, or being a hero. Stephan King did a great job with this book. I was scared most of the time I was reading it. I couldn't even read it before going to bed, it had me scared about what was outside the window. Best scariest book that has been written to date and if you love the modern vampires of today, this book is probably not for you."
- "I recently read the book "'Salem's Lot" by Stephen King, and I really enjoyed it. It talk about the obscure story of Jerusalem's Lot, where a new resident will bring an evil allure that will infect all the inhabitants.. It won't let you sleep at night, but it's well worth!"
- "I love mind control stories, I mean I really love them. That is why I was so disappointed when I was looking into the best books with mind control stories for a new book to read and a friend recommended "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King . After spending several days reading it, I was extremely underwhelmed. The book did not connect with me and I wasn't impressed at all. I definitely would not recommend this to anyone as it didn't live up to the typical hype of a Stephen King novel. "
- "'Salem's Lot is a classic horror novel and one of King's best. If you have read any Stephen King, you will know that one of his go-to themes is the struggle between good and evil. It can be hit-or-miss, but in 'Salem's lot, it is dead-on. It combines the classic horror monster tropes from vampires, with real adult fears that hit close to home. I was skeptical before reading it because vampire stories rarely scare me, but when I read 'Salem's Lot, I couldn't sleep for weeks.""Dracula is the absolute Best Novel about the rank theme... if you read "Samuel Flores" comment, you just know how good of a story is, that people like him, the DEFINTELY haven't read the book (would't even dare to say such absurdity if so), deeply know who he is... as we all, but dare to get lost in the exchange of letters that and diary logs that compels one hell of a Story, master Vampire story. like its monster, inmortal to the pass of time. One of those sotries that age well."
- "Stephen King's book 'Salem's Lot' explored a lot of social issues that were prevalent during the 70's. It discusses the influence an evil newcomber can have on the minds of folks from small towns. It speaks to how those who are not exposed to the good and evil in the world and how they can be manipulated. The book is wonderfully scary and well written. "
- "Stephen King's second novel "Salem's Lot" is a captivating tale with an essence of literary darkness. This book set the tone for King's rise to literary notoriety! It kept me captivated throughout and I could not put it down. The photographs are a great added touch to bring the story to life. "

in What are the best horror books"This novel scared me so much when I was a kid! I remember reading it, huddled under the covers in my bed, with a flashlight and the lights off. Some parts are very disturbing, in a fascinating and entertaining way, that doesn't let you put it down."
- "the Stephen king's Novel has two elements that he also uses to good effect in later novels: a small American town, usually in Maine, where people are disconnected from each other, quietly nursing their potential for evil; and a mixed bag of rational, goodhearted people, including a writer, who band together to fight that evil. great fun to read, and has been very influential in the horror genre. But it's also a sly piece of social commentary."
- "Stephen King is the master of horror - and if that's what someone's looking for at Halloween, then this book is definitely on the top of the list. For myself, I'm a little more light-hearted about Halloween and prefer to just bob for apples and maybe watch 'Hocus Pocus' again. This book sounds too dark for me."
- "You are all alone for the weekend and need something to get distracted by. This will do the trick. Salems lot is a book that grabs you by the neck and keeps your attention as long as you are sitting down. It will have you hooked. Stephen King does what he knows best, and that is keep us wanting more! Its a delight the way this story unfolds throughout the chapters."
