'Salem's Lot

'Salem's Lot - Stephen King I wasn't as thrilled with this book as I was the first time I read it.

I didn't like the fact that towards the end the character's became really very transparent and cliched and so did the storytelling. The beginning of this novel was very strong as the players figured out what was going on...but the last part of the book...I think what really did it for me was the 'heroine' did exactly what she wasn't supposed to do. She went off on her own and got what was coming to her (I suppose).

The first time I read this I had never read another Vampire novel, now I have a lot of them under my belt and this may be coloring my perceptions of THIS book.
