How about a book review?

When I first finished “‘Salem’s Lot,” I wasn’t completely blown away. Over time, it began to affect me more and more, and I read certain passages over and over again. I realized how brilliant it was; a synthesis of classic novels and macabre pulp-horror. It was an American Dracula.

Some might say it’s a copy off Dracula, but that, in my opinion, is why it’s so fascinating. As Stephen King admitted in the back of the book, it began as a question: “What would happen if Dracula came to 1975 America?” He delivers it brilliantly. I think this will become a true classic, years after it was published. So far it’s my favorite of Stephen King’s books. 10/10
