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.… (mais)

This is my second read through of this classic. It's funny, because I found out that in King's first novel, my personal connection was that I was the same age as Carrie White. This time around, the personal connection is that the town of 'Salem's Lot died on my 13th birthday.

I'd forgotten how much I loved this book. I mean, I knew I loved it, but I forgot the depths of my love. Yes, there's the odd clunky line in the novel, but overall, my God, King's descriptive powers were something to behold. Unbelievable.

And, for a novel about vampires, I think the thing that originally blew my mind was that the book didn't specifically mention vampires anywhere on the cover, and I didn't quite catch the reference of the girl with the drop of blood at the corner of her mouth. So, when I read it the first time, and I found out for sure it was vampires at a point that was well over a third of the way into the novel...well, it was mind-boggling.

Reading it again, it's a wonderful concept that no publisher would allow today. Today, the vampires would be spoiled in the cover copy, and the author would have to bring them in quick. That's one of the many things that make this just a brilliant and gripping story.

For a couple of days, I was a fifteen-year-old kid again, experiencing this for the first time in the living room of our old house.

Thank you, Stephen King. ( )

I’m a fan of Stephen King, both his flat-out horror (IT and The Shining come to mind) and his “the real world is scary enough” sort of books (Misery and The Stand). It’s hard for me to think of many other writers who have such a conversational style that draws me immediately into the narrative, as if we were sitting around a campfire together.

I read ’Salem’s Lot (1975) many years ago and remembered being thoroughly creeped out. So when I came across it as I was rearranging my bookshelves, I decided to take it for another spin and see if my reaction has changed over the decades.

Um, no. Still thoroughly creeped out, still pleasurably horrified by this tale of a small Maine town colonized by a vampire. This was only King’s second published novel, but many of the touches that would later become hallmarks of his work were present: Ordinary people behaving in extraordinary ways, the reader having just enough of an edge to get scared before the people in the book do, and of course, the heroics of a child. It seems clear that King sees children as the real heroes in this world, as in this passage:

Before drifting away entirely, he found himself reflecting—not for the first time—on the peculiarity of adults. They took laxatives, liquor, or sleeping pills to drive away their terrors so that sleep would come, and their terrors were so tame and domestic: the job, the money, what the teacher will think if I can get Jennie nicer clothes, does my wife still love me, who are my friends. They were pallid compared to the fears every child lies cheek and jowl with in his dark bed, with no one to confess to in hope of perfect understanding but another child. … The same lonely battle must be fought night after night and the only cure is the eventual ossification of the imaginary faculties, and this is called adulthood.

If reading about vampires and the terrible things people do under pressure isn’t your bag, that’s totally understandable, and you should give this one a pass. But if you’re nostalgic for some good old-fashioned horror, you could do much worse than make a visit to ‘Salem’s Lot, Maine. Just make sure you leave before the sun goes down. ( )

Nachdem ich das eine oder andere King Buch in diesem Jahr wiederentdeckt und nach vielen Jahren nochmals gelesen bzw. gehört hatte, stand als nächstes Brennen muss Salem auf dem Programm. Es ist das erste King-Buch was ich je gelesen habe. Es war mir als zum Teil extrem unheimlich in Erinnerung. Besonders eine Szene war in meinem Gedächtnis für mich besonders beängstigend gewesen. Es war die einzige Szene, die mir - so dachte ich - immer noch klar vor Augen stand, nach all den Jahren. Als ich das Buch nun erneut las (hörte), kam eine, wie ich dachte, ähnliche Szene bereits im ersten Drittel. Die war aber nicht wirklich unheimlich. Und so rechnete ich damit, dass es später im Buch, beim "Showdown" dann so richtig horrormäßig werden würde. Nur dass diese Szene nie kam. Das, was ich in Erinnerung hatte, war diese eine Szene relativ am Anfang. Und sie wirkte überhaupt nicht mehr beängstigend auf mich. Das war eine interessante Erfahrung: Wie sehr eine Erinnerung täuschen kann. Vor 30 Jahren war das für mich total unheimlich gewesen. Und genau so hatte ich es immer noch abgespeichert. Heute war die ganze Sache ... nun ja, nicht wirklich lahm, aber eben... nicht weiter schlimm. Und somit musste ich "Brennen muss Salem" von der Liste der unheimlichesten Bücher leider streichen. Das Buch ist immer noch gut, kann aber nach meinem persönlichen Geschmack nicht mehr standhalten mit Klassikern wie "Es". Ich habe nicht bereut, es nochmals gehört zu haben (auch wenn der Sprecher mich zeitweise etwas genervt hat - warum hat man nicht wieder David Nathan verpflichtet?), aber aus den oberen Rängen der King-Lieblingsbücher ist es leider rausgefallen.

Salem's Lot (Signet) by Stephen King (1976)

Confidently written, good is enough and characters (reminds me of John Grisham in that way) but vampires not really my thing!
