Salem’s Lot by Stephen King

Salem's LotThis novel is a modern-day version of Dracula. It tells the story of a vampire invading and destroying a small town in Maine. This was my first Stephen King novel and I was disappointed that it didn’t scare me as much as the author’s name promised. It had some disturbing moments and kept a fairly quick pace but it did not have the terror or horror that I was expecting.

The characters were interesting but some were underdeveloped and at times hard to keep track of; however, I thought he portrayed the eccentricities of a small town in an interesting and believable manner.

The parallels with the original Dracula were subtle and overall woven into the novel well.
