Summary

El gran clásico de terror de Dan Simmons.

Verano de 1960. En el pueblecito de Elm Haven, Illinois, cinco preadolescentes pasan sus días entre atardeceres en bicicleta, juegos y descubrimientos propios de una despreocupada infancia en un lugar idílico. Sin embargo, tras la desaparición de un compañero de clase, su afán de aventura los llevará a averiguar mucho más de lo que esperaban: un mundo paralelo en el que la realidad y la fantasía apenas se distinguen. El inesperado repique de una extraña campana en medio de la noche marcará el fin de los días tranquilos. Ahora, desde las profundidades de la Old Central School, el mal acecha.

Acontecimientos insólitos y escalofriantes comienzan a apropiarse del día a día, propagando el miedo por el pueblo: un soldado muerto que los persigue, gusanos gigantes bajo el suelo, el cuerpo animado de un profesor fallecido y una serie de demonios que han despertado y que solo nuestros cinco protagonistas podrán desafiar, decididos a acabar con la fuerza oscura que domina la noche.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This masterfully crafted horror classic, featuring a brand-new introduction by Dan Simmons, will bring you to the edge of your seat, hair standing on end and blood freezing in your veins.

It's the summer of 1960 and in the small town of Elm Haven, Illinois, five twelve-year-old boys are forging the powerful bonds that a lifetime of change will not break. From sunset bike rides to shaded hiding places in the woods, the boys' days are marked by all of the secrets and silences of an idyllic middle-childhood. But amid the sundrenched cornfields their loyalty will be pitilessly tested. When a long-silent bell peals in the middle of the night, the townsfolk know it marks the end of their carefree days. From the depths of the Old Central School, a hulking fortress tinged with the mahogany scent of coffins, an invisible evil is rising. Strange and horrifying events begin to overtake everyday life, spreading terror through the once idyllic town. Determined to exorcize this ancient plague, Mike, Duane, Dale, Harlen, and Kevin must wage a war of blood―against an arcane abomination who owns the night...
