This was my first re-read of this book, since I read it as a teen. This is my first read as a parent.
I still think this is the darkest story King has ever written.(show spoiler)
I also think this is one of his scariest tales. Things with yellow eyes, wandering the forest and ancient burial grounds? That is NOTHING compared to seeing(show spoiler)
It just doesn't get any scarier or darker than that.
My original rating of 5 stars stands!
