I finally finished reading Salem’s Lot by Stephen King. I wanted to read this book because it was mentioned in the Dark Tower series and one of the characters of the Dark Tower was Father Callahan from the book Salem’s Lot.
Warning: there is some violence and gory scenes.
In this book, a man named Ben Mears comes back to Salem’s lot to write a book on a house on top of a hill in Salem’s Lot. He wanted to buy the house, but he discovers the house was already sold to two men. Those two men also opened up an antique furniture store. Then a boy goes missing and a dog gets killed. The boy becomes the first made vampire in the town. He then makes his brother a vampire. Ben, Dr. Cody, and Mark Petrie become vampire hunters. Ben and Mark end up burning the town, but some of the vampires remain.
I really liked this book. Now I’m listening to A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle. It is the third book of the Time Quintet (A Wrinkle in Time) book series. I’m skipping the second book.
