must uncover the awful truth behind a car with a horrifying and murderous history Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and heaven help anyone who gets in Christine s way If I admitted that I probably enjoyed thisthan The Shining would that amount to sacrilege Good Review vs Evil Review Good ReviewThere isn t much I didn t particularly enjoy about the novel, except perhaps for one or two pacing issues Then again, the book is only about 500 pages, which is a lot less than some of those other King books It is incredibly creepy at times, which I found surprising, since the idea of a haunted car might seem a bit, well, corny It s everything but In f If I admitted that I probably enjoyed thisthan The Shining would that amount to sacrilege Good Review vs Evil Review Good ReviewThere

books It is incredibly creepy at times, which I found surprising, since the idea of a haunted car might seem a bit, well, corny It s everything but In fact, the story is a curious cross between true nostalgia and horror The musical theme prevalent throughout the novel, with references to songs about cars, was a nice touch In keeping with the theme, King also incorporates a lot of throwaway references to American muscle cars into the story so and so drives a 66 Camaro and the like It adds a nice touch of authenticity The sympathetic first person narrative of Parts 1 3 was striking and I really felt for name withhold due to spoiler when things started going awry My horror had changed to a deep and terrible sorrow I suppose that is really what this novel is about, and Christine is just a vehicle for a bigger story about obsession and possession Terrible pun, I know, but unintended Evil ReviewOf course the warning signs were there the smell of decay every time I opened the book the fact that the book kept popping up everywhere I went and then, when my wife told me to choose between her and Christine I suppose it is a bit of a problem if you start rooting for the baddie in a horror novel, but the way Christine goes after those shitters varmints is righteous, man But seriously though, this is one cool book It happens to be scary too and there she it is lightning mcqueen

ever read I was in the fourth grade and we d just moved to California I didn t have any friends or anywhere to go yet, so I spent my days poking around in the library, like any good nerd I d heard somewhere that Stephen King books contained scandalous curse words, so I picked it out of the library s King collection because the title I have a real guilty pleasure, love love realtionship with

library, shitting my pants, and unable to explain to my parents why I suddenly refused to go through the garage to take the bins out on trash day Ah, youth I am very excited to have finished this book Future Matthew may look back and wonder why this is So, for historical reference, this is the first book I have finished since the Coronavirus panic began It is now Monday, March 30th and the last time I finished a book was Saturday, March 14th and even the rest of March before that was slow because the panic was on its way I am pretty sure this is the longest I have gone between finishing a

the panic was on its way I am pretty sure this is the longest I have gone between finishing a book since joining Goodreads in 2012 I just haven t been able to focus on reading at all Two things helped with this one it was a reread and it was an audiobook.I do like these classic Stephen King novels This one is not my favorite by any stretch, but it is so well known and truly embodies 80s era King I wouldn t suggest anyone start their King adventure here, but it is not a bad read if you have tried a few others already As you may know, King has had a few demonic automobiles in his time and even inspired his offspring to take after him with NOS4A2 , but this is where it all began A reread was a good idea because I have forgotten so much, even some of the biggest plot points like view spoiler the evil car was not so much an unexplainable possession as much as the demon of its former owner, LeBay hide spoiler I think that overall it was not quite as tight as some of his other early books it drug in parts and that kind of made me think a bit of Firestarter, which is his lowest rated early novel for me but once you get through the parts that drag, it s a hell of a ride.This book may also have the dubious honor of having a movie made of it that is better than the book I am sure that there are many out there who will not agree with me, but, man, the John Carpenter movie is some really great 80s horror cheese I remember watching this movie over and over again in my teen years If you love the movie, you may not care as much for the book or if you thought the book was just so so, don t let that keep you from watching the movie Or, if you are lucky, you will love both
