It had been a while since I read Stephen King, it was like returning to an old friend. This novel was the second he published, and one of the classics I had not read. I really enjoyed this tale of vampires, and even though it was published more than 30 years ago, I think it has aged very well. It is classic King with his writing style, character building, and combination of the real and the horror fantasy. I look forward to continue my lifetime march toward reading all of his novels and short story collections.
