I totally enjoy Stephen King simply because of his vast imagination and the manner in which he causes you to exercise your imagination. He will create scenes and your mind must fill in the blanks, you thereby become part of the story. Christine is the story of a demon possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury. The story begins in 1978 when two young men are riding by a run down house with a dilapidated auto sitting in the front yard. One of the boys wants to stop and see the car, when he is talking to the owner of the Plymouth his friend goes and inspects the car and is frightened by the vibes coming from the car. But the one boy buys the car for $250.00. The boys father won't allow him to have the car by the house, the young man works out a work for rent deal with the owner of a junk yard, who is also running a parts deal on stolen cars. As you read you see the young man work on the car, and the car repairs itself until it is in mint condition, and the radio only plays 1958 rock and roll. Some other young men use crowbars and other items and almost destroy the car. The car repairs itself and starts tracking down the offenders. This story reads fast and exciting. Revealing the second half would give to much away, but for those who love excitement it is a must. Good reading.
