Summary

Christine was eating into his mind, burrowing into his unconscious. Christine, blood red, fat, and finned, was 20. Her promise lay all in her past. Greedy and big, she was Arnie's obsession, a '58 Plymouth Fury. Broken down but not finished.

There was still power in her - a frightening power that leaked like sump oil, staining and corrupting. A malign power that corroded the mind and turned ownership into possession.

never gets stale

I read this book for the first time when I was about sixteen. It was my first Stephen king. I loved it. I've 're read it a few times over the years, and most of Stephen kings other books, and in my opinion it is one of his best. His earlier books had a strong continuity and commitment that I think some of his later books lacked. This is the first time I've listened to Christine as an audio book, the narrator is excellent in every way. His voice has a youth full yet wise tone, he was a perfect choice. His voices were so good especially Arnie who's voice changes, subtlety at first. I'm now much much older than sixteen and this audio book stood the test of time for me

A wonderful book brought to life

This is one of my favourite King novels and Holter Graham did not disappoint as the narrator. The character's were fully realized and just as I imagined them to be. Very impressed

Why?

Is this man incapable of writing a book without the N word. Second book of his I’ve read and he just can’t keep it out of his book it seems. Last book of his I’ll be purchasing. Returned both titles by the way.

Christine Review...

If you could sum up Christine in three words, what would they be?

Sinister,
Gripping,
Epic

What other book might you compare Christine to, and why?

The shining, as I loved that book also

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Atmosphere

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found it neither, I did find it scary!

Any additional comments?

Nope

Not bad... not amazing.

I’ve read a lot of King novels, and I do mean a lot. But for some reason I avoided this one for years. I think I just couldn’t grasp the idea of a killer car as interesting. King does flesh it out a bit, but still, I wasn’t far off the mark.

If 10 was his best work this is around a 6.3. It’s just alright.

If you’re stuck for a book it’s not a bad listen at all. The narrator was great which always helps.

Enjoyable story very well told

Not one of King's most complex stories but a good, solid horror tale none the less. However the excellent narration raises what would have been a reasonable book to an absolutely stellar one. By far one of the most enjoyable readings I have listened to in a while.
