    I have a real guilty-pleasure, love/love realtionship with Stephen King books. I don't care how literarily unhip that is. Christine was the first big-girl book I 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 ...

    You never forget your first time, and the memories of my initial encounter with Stephen King when he lured me into the back of a 1958 Plymouth Fury and had his way with me are still clear over 30 years later. For the record, he wasn?t gentle. I was a wee lad of 13 when this cam...

    Misfit Arnie Cunningham buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine and it's love at first sight. As he fixes the car and his obsession with it grows, his life spins out of control. 11/5/2013 I'm putting Christine in park for now since it's not revving my engine. It's as slow as a Pl...

    CHRISTINE was always a book that intrigued me. When I was young a hardback copy sat prominently on the bookshelves of my Grandma?s bedroom. It had a bright, angry looking Plymouth Fury on the cover and I can remember being fascinated by it. Yet, when I started reading Stephen King no...

    This is one of the few King stories that I had never read. I don't know why I'd never read it, but it just seemed to me like reading about a car wasn't really my thing. I'm not a car girl. I drive one, but I don't dream about them, or get excited by them. I guess I was afraid that this...

    Finished this book last night. This was my first real attempt at a Stephen King novel. The Mist had me warmed up to King and I figured I'd snag an other good ol' book of his from my library. Unlike the mist, this finally had an ending (which I'm glad about because after over 500 pages,...

    One of the better Stephen King books I've read in a while. I read this right after reading Salem's Lot and noticed a similar formula in King's writing. Like Salem's Lot, the first half of the book is devoted to character development and drawing you into the setting. There are some dark...

    Finally have read this one. Great book - it almost completely follows the movie but there is a major difference to be had. While the events are the same basically, the story behind it is altered majorly. I was a bit peeved about Dennis and Leigh, and it was odd with King's point of vie...

    If I admitted that I probably enjoyed this more than The Shining ? would that amount to sacrilege? Good Review vs Evil Review Good Review There isn?t much I didn?t particularly enjoy about the novel, except perhaps for one or two pacing issues. Then again, the book is o...

    OH MY GODS! What a f*cking treat! I totally loved this book. I cannot remember why I passed it over way back when. I was on-board the King express from THE SHINING and forward, reading every release. Even buying the hardbacks, which was an unbelievable treat in my boyhood home. What...

    I once saw a comedian who said something to the effect that Led Zeppelin could sing ?Mary had a little lamb? and make it feel dark and evil and threatening. Then with a passable imitation of Robert Plant he went on to sing the children?s song but in the fashion of a 70s metal ban...

    My re-telling of the story "Christine" to my sixty-five year old immigrant mother, enjoy: Me: "Mom?....are you listening? The story is about a haunted car" Mom: "a what?" Me: "a car, mom - the story is about a haunted, evil car that can drive by itself, and it kills people. Be...

    Christine is not one of Stephen King's greatest works by any means, but it is still a good story with moments of real suspense and terror. I feel that one of King's biggest short-comings with this novel was having the tale told by a future Dennis. To me, this takes away a lot of suspen...

    3.5 Stars.BIG fan of Stephen King, but not so much of CHRISTINE. Reading a 700+ page book....especially one written by SK usually does not bother me in the least, but CHRISTINE was just too long....too wordy....was expecting more wicked deeds than the movie.The storyline IS creepy good...

    I believe this is the third or fourth time I've visited with Christine. I blame Walmart for suddenly having an influx of Uncle Stevie's books in mass market paperback. This time around was just as good as the last. It got me to thinking that perhaps it's time for another possessed ...

    3.5 stars. this isn't my favorite SK but not the worse either. I really liked the haunting aspects that we don't see in the movie. LeBay, his family and such. I'm ok with not knowing how Christine came to be alive. I listened to the audio book. the narrator did a great job with the voi...

    First off, I'm a King fanboy, but I'm a little different from other fanboys. Here's what I think: When King's good, he's the best in the business. When he sucks, he's still readable, but it pisses me the fuck off because I know what he's capable of. Being readable even when he's off hi...

    Fans of the Netflix series Stranger Things who might be unaware of how freely the creators sampled '80s pop culture--right down to the title font--need look no further than three novels by Stephen King: one I've read (Firestarter), one I'm reading this month (It) and one I'll review no...

    Thought I would hate this because the antagonist is a car. I thought it would be one of the weaker King novels but it was wonderful and I really liked it. You get so lost in the well written characters and setting. ...

    Oh, how I have to eat what I said about this book in my original review (of the Swedish translation) here. "Will hold up for many re-reads yet"... No, actually, this was most likely my final time revisiting the story. Don't get me wrong, it's really good and I'm awarding it a strong 4-...

    I think this is probably my least favourite King book I?ve read so far. It?s my first time reading it and I found it so slow going. It took forever me to get into it and I felt like it was just dragging on and on. The idea was so promising but I thought it lacked a lot of King?s ...

    Christine is a real creepy book. Makes me a little uncomfortable sitting in a used car, not looking forward to ever buying one again LOL . It kept me intrigued the entire time! It took me a while to read it for personal reasons, had those not been in the way I probably would have devou...

    Christine is Stephen King at his best. I am not kidding: it is my favorite book of his (Dark Tower fans, be gentle).... Christine is an old Plymouth that Arnie Cunningham decides to buy and repair. He gradually gets 'in love' with his car, and, as Christine is repaired, Arnie also c...

    Okay, enough is enough. I've been putting off writing reviews for months, just because I prefer it when they're huge and well-thought out, with quotes, clear arguments for and against, and everything. Turns out though, I procrastinate like crazy when it comes to writing these, because ...
