The audiobook version of Pet Sematary by Stephen King as narrated by Michael C. Hall is an amazing listing.
I had previously read/watched and reviewed both the Pet Sematary book and the 1989 Pet Sematary Film. When I heard that the audiobook version is one of The Book Dad‘s favorite audiobooks, I just had to give it a listen!
Thank you again, Andrew, for sending me the code that made this download possible!

My Thoughts on the Audiobook of Pet Sematary by Stephen King, narrated by Michael C. Hall
I tend to struggle with audiobooks, but I do love them! I’ve found that I need to have previously read the book for the audio version to work for me personally.
As I had read this one pretty recently, the story was still fresh in my mind! But let’s be honest, this story will probably always be stuck in my mind. It’s not exactly a forgettable tale!
The second I saw that Michael C. Hall was the narrator, I couldn’t wait to listen. I absolutely loved him in Dexter and what an awesome voice he has! He did an absolutely wonderful job narrating this story.
When I first hit play to start the audiobook, I was totally sucked in. I cruised through listening to this entire book very quickly and in just a few sittings. Whether I was multi-tasking at work and listening, or listening while I was running around the house taking care of things, this story was the wonderfully spooky content that got me through.
I have to admit, one element that I was pretty nervous for was the portrayal of Judd…
But my goodness, Michael C. Hall’s accent for Judd!! Oh my gosh. He did a great job. Especially with words like “ayuh” “here” “road” “beers” “summer” “remember” and “course”! Even the little whistle he had going on… it’s was like being back home and listening to my Mainer dad or grandparents talk!
My Final Thoughts on the Pet Sematary Audiobook
This was an all around amazing listen! Whether you’ve already read this one or watched either of the films, I still highly recommend checking this version out!
Thanks for reading!
