Descripción del producto
"Spine-tingling fiction at its best." --Grand Rapids Press"A master storyteller." --The Los Angeles Times "An unabashed chiller." --Austin American Statesman "[The] most wonderfully gruesome man on the planet." --USA Today
"A super exorcism...tremendous." --Kirkus Reviews "A novel of chilling, unspeakable evil." --Chattanooga Times "[King is] . . . the guy who probably knows more about scary goings-on in confined, isolated places than anybody since Edgar Allan Poe." --Entertainment Weekly "Stephen King has built a literary genre of putting ordinary people in the most terrifying situations. . . . he's the author who can always make the improbable so scary you'll feel compelled to check the locks on the front door." --The Boston Globe "Peerless imagination." --The Observer (London)
Reseña del editor
Ben 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.Ver Descripción del producto

Con respecto a Amazon, el pedido llegó en menos de 2 días, en perfectas condiciones, mejores incluso que las de algunos libros a la venta en librerías físicas.
Con respecto al contenido, una gozada: aunque es mi quinto libro de King, era mi primero dentro de la categoría terror. Tengo 38 años y es la primera vez en mi vida que puedo afirmar que he encontrado a mi escritor favorito: Stephen King.

With Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and all these romantic, obnoxious, poorly acted vampire movies and shows out, I couldn't imagine that a book about vampires could possibly be anything but lame.
Holy moly was I wrong. Absolutely terrifying. It goes from "fun spooky" to "swear out loud terrifying" about midway through.
If you love King, this is right up your alley. Obviously a classic book. Made me afraid to look out the window at night. NEVER thought I'd find vampires scary.
It's still not my favorite Stephen King book - and I've read them all. But it is much better than I remembered. It's a hefty tome like most of King's offerings and I did feel that it was repetitive and too wordy in spots.
But as far as vampire books go, it's truly top of the line. You aren't going to find blood, guts and gore like modern day vampire tales. There are a few stomach-roiling moments but King mainly depends on his superior storytelling abilities to let the reader imagine the terrifying happenings in 'salem's Lot.
The book is suspenseful and scary yet filled with ordinary people trying to overcome extraordinary circumstances.
I enjoyed most of the characters, especially Ben and Mark. They were vividly drawn and I felt I would know them if I ever met them - and even call them friends.
A couple of negatives based on this illustrated edition:
There were very few pictures in the book, especially for a book of this length. And the pictures are very small in the Kindle edition.
There was a formatting issue about halfway through the book that garbled up about 50 pages of the book. It was barely readable - and annoying.
I did enjoy the two short stories that were part of this edition - ONE FOR THE ROAD and JERUSALEM'S LOT. And I especially enjoyed the deleted scenes at the end of the book.
So, all in all, I'm glad I re-read this book. Will I read it again someday in the future like I do many of Stephen King's books? Probably not.
