Salem's lot is a regular town like any other in New England, but when the sun goes down and the night rises evil comes alive, and the methodical laughter of children is heard throughout the streets. People start disappearing throughout the story
I personally did not like this book. Therefore i would not recommend it. I felt the book was kinda slow, at some parts it got exciting and intriguing but overall the book was pretty slow.
The theme of the book is evil is a force best left alone. This is shown because if Ben would've left with Susan shortly after Matt's heart attack they would've lived there lives. even though Ben defeats the evil in the end he still lost everything he had that was important to him
