Winner of the 2020 Audio Publishers Association Lifetime Achievement Award Now a major motion picture! Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller is a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and frightening novels. 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. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed’s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing…as is evidenced by the makeshift graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Wild, powerful, disturbing.” Washington Post Book World
“A stunner…King gets you to believe the unbelievable.” Detroit News
“Unrelenting, convincing…awesome power.” Pittsburgh Press
“Though the horror elements are always looming, Hall warmly portrays the all-too-human Creed family, full of love for each other but also flawed, damaged, and uncertain. He molds Louis Creed into an imperfect but sympathetic protagonist and effectively changes pitch to give Louis’ wife Rachel and their two kids believable voices. For added texture, Hall manages a solid Maine accent as the Creeds’ kindly old neighbors. Hall’s narration captures the surprising humanity found on the page, but his voice becomes appropriately grim as the story barrels towards the inevitable darkness. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
