Never before available on unabridged audio! Dexter’s Michael C. Hall reads this classic horror story described by Publishers Weekly as the “most frightening novel Stephen King has ever written.”
Now a major motion picture!
When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job, and moves his family to the idyllic, rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow’s tranquility, there’s an undercurrent of danger that lingers…like the graveyard in the woods near the Creed’s home, where generations of children have buried their beloved pets.
Behind the “pet sematary,” there is another burial ground, one that lures people to it with seductive promises…and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. An ominous fate befalls anyone who dares tamper with this forbidden place, as Louis is about to discover for himself…
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Stephen King has called Pet Sematary the most frightening book he’s ever written, and he’s not wrong—the horror these characters face is the crushing finality of death itself. Soon after moving to a small Maine town, doctor Louis Creed learns about a decades-old animal burial ground from his elderly neighbor. After unthinkable tragedy strikes, Louis finds out more than he wanted about the town’s creepy history. Actor Michael C. Hall (TV’s Dexter) performs the full cast of characters with an impressive array of New England accents. His skillful narration heightens King’s hideous vortex of gory horror and deep-seated regret.

The Best of the Genre and The Best Reading
Stephen King is simply a great writer and an undisputed master of the genre. He says, in the foreword, that Pet Sematary is his most frightening book, and one that he himself questioned publishing. We can be glad he did. What masterful storytelling and suspense! And the reading by Hall is pitch perfect -- not so showy as to distract but with enough expression to add to the telling. This is a great audiobook.
I love the story (also Micheal and SK) but Micheal’s rendition of this story is AMAZING
Michael C Hall knocks it out of the park
This isn’t my first read of this story (which is one of my all time SK favorites) MCHs performance is perfect. His character voices (especially of that of Ellie and Rachael that are feminine but not overdone) and Judd really make the story come to life. I will listen to all 15 hours of this again happily. My new favorite audiobook
