This review is from: 'Salem's Lot (Paperback)
I first read this book a good few years ago. I have read it many times since and I can honestly say that it never fails to send shivers down my spine! Vampires gradually take over a small town, Jerusalem's Lot, and they are not definately not friendly (anyone reading this hoping to find a Edward Cullen type of vampire are in for a shock!)
There are some truly chilling moments in the book (the scene where Danny Glick is scratching at Mark Petrie's window to be let in stayed with me for a long time!). It's made more frightening as the vampires are not just mindless bloodsuckers, they retain much of their former intelligence and are able to be cunning when hunting for victims.
This is one of my favourite books ever and it never seems to get old. I would thoroughly recommend it to all fans of vampire fiction. I'd give it more stars if I could!!
