November Buddy read RMFAO (Reading My Frigging A** Off)

Louis Creed moves with his family from Chicago to a small house near Ludlow, Maine. He immediately gets friendly with his neighbor Jud and his wife Norma. It's Jud that one day will show Louis and his family the Pet Sematary that lies close to the Creed house...

I dreaded reading this book because I've seen the movie and I knew that it would hit hard even if they had done a lot of changes from the book to the movie adaption. There were changes, and even though it ages since I saw the movie last time I feel that the book is, without a doubt, better than the movie. But now I want to re-watch the movie to see how much they changed the story. Most been 5-10 years since I last saw it, perhaps I will like it better now...or perhaps I just will like it less since I liked the book so much.

I think one of the reasons they fail when they do movies of Kings books (well they do succeed of course sometimes like the Green Mile) is when they take away the heart of the story and just focus on the horror. Yes King writes horror books, but like with this one, it's a hell of a lot more than just horror, it's about grief and family...and death. Sometimes dead is better...

It was a hell of a ride, and I enjoyed the book even though I read it with dread... ( )
