Christine



A little gem hidden within the stacks.

Yes, I did pick this book because of the fact that my name is the title. I had no idea it was about a possessed car. Christine is the name of the 1958 Plymouth Fury that our lead character, Arnie, buys for a mere $250.00. There is a transformation in Arnie as he restores the car. His confidence increases while his social skills diminish. Christine is quite a sadistic and vengeful car. I didn't know that a car could become horrifying. Stephen King wrote this back in the early 1980’s but the story does not feel dated. I would recommend this title to anyone looking for a good horror title.
