Christine by Stephen King

kingchristine

This story was told long before I was even born and whilst I enjoyed it I did find it a tad long-winded in places. It’s a longish book of 597 pages and it felt even longer, all the car talk and other over analysed parts made it quite difficult to get into. However once the pace picked up and the thrill factor grew the book just flew along.

Christine is about a car that is much more than a car, when the main character Arnie gets his hands on it strange things seem to start happening. Arnie begins to change and people feel ill at ease around the car ‘Christine’, and then bad things begin to happen to the people who enrage or hurt Arnie.

In true King style the story is wild and terrifying in a captivating way that only Stephen King can create. He takes the most unbelievable story and makes it so easy to believe with his magical story telling ability. Whilst this isn’t one of Kings best it is a great story to get into, once you get past all the extra car stuff of course.
