Depressingly good

    I just finished reading this book and it was soooo good but also very raw and disturbing and depressing. I feel like it’s going to be one of those books that lingers around in my head for a while, before I can move on.

    Anyone else get that feeling after putting it down?

    Doc and family move from Chicago to Maine country house. Son is nearly killed in the road in the first ten minutes of arrival, saved (ironically) by kind old neighbor across the rud. Old Man Jud tells Doc about pet sematary on first day! Doc's first day on job is highlighted by speaking corpse. Doc and family visit pet sematary. Cat is killed in road. Jud has a plan. Cat comes back. Corpse warns Doc "in his sleep" about sour ground. Don't cross barrier. Son is killed by truck. Doc hatches plan, digs up son, crosses barrier. Son comes back and kills Jud and Mommy. Doc tries again, Plays solitaire...church bells, footsteps, "darling".
