Salem’s Lot Audiobook Free (read by Ron McLarty)
‘Salem’s Lot Audiobook is horror audio by American author Stephen King. It was his second published novel.
The town is revisited in the short stories “Jerusalem’s Lot” and “One for the Road”, both from King’s story collection Night Shift Audiobook (1978). The novel was nominated for the World Fantasy Award in 1976, and the Locus Award for the All-Time Best Fantasy Novel in 1987.
The story involves a writer named Ben Mears who returns to the town of Jerusalem’s Lot (or ‘Salem’s Lot for short) in Maine, where he had lived from the age of five through nine, only to discover that the residents are becoming vampires.
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.
I was listening to Stephen King – Salem’s Lot Audiobook Mp3 on my way to visit my folks out in the country and I found myself shouting, “Kill it! Kill the bastard already! Just do it! ARGGGGGGGHHHHH!!!” The way he describes people turning corners or tiptoeing down some dark stairs – you can almost hear the building music in the movie scene from your mind. It is difficult to keep to the description of the characters in the story without thinking of the old TV series – who can extinguish the image of the crazy blue Nosferatu from the 70’s? I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
This is a rich story full of great themes about society, the power of faith, men vs boys (my favorite chapter is the inner monologue Mark Petrie has after a close call where he muses about how adult fears are nothing compared to what a child deals with under the bed at night) and even love and salvation. Read it and decide for yourself if this is a horror novel or a novel about the horrors of man.
As is true of his writing style I did find myself glazing over from a little too much description at times, though not often and I left the story feeling as though this place truly exists somewhere outside of Cumberland, Maine.
The voice performance is also top-notch, but I’ve always been a sucker (pun intended) for Simon & Schuster audiobooks. Welcome to Salem’s Lot Audiobook Download. Highly recommended!
