    Story
    "One I had missed, glad I got to it"
    Where does Christine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is classic stephen king. Great characters that you can actually care about, great story.
    This story is worth your time.


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

    Narrator does a very competant job.
    Spoiler alert* --- his does a great job of the back and forth Arnie-Lebay switching.


    Who was the most memorable character of Christine and why?

    Dennis of course.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Stephen King, you'll love this. Somehow I had overlooked this one.
    Really a good listen.

    Story
    "the story was too long but it was still good"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Christine to be better than the print version?

    i never read the print version. i have seen the movie. i can't read print books but if i could i think i would never have finished it. so the audio version (as usual) is better.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

    any book by king i have either read physically in the past or seen the movie. so i know what i am getting *except rose madder. it is the least favorite but i like stephen king (if i choose the book carefully--i don't like all his stuff). i give the book a 7 on the scale of 1-10.

    then would be green mile and thinner (as king writing as richard bachman).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    i liked the scenes where arnie interacted with his family and dennis. i think the ending would have been scarier if it did not go on for so long.


    If you could rename Christine, what would you call it?

    men love cars but sometimes cars love men


    Any additional comments?

    seems to me that part two and the ending were way too long. but the movie did not go into the relationship with lebay that well. i found that interesting.

    Story
    "Above average. Not great, but entertaining."

    STORY BRIEF:
    Unpopular pimply faced high school senior Arnie falls in love at first sight with a used car. He buys it. It’s obsessive love. There are supernatural elements to this car. Arnie has one good friend Dennis who narrates the story.

    OPINION:
    A lot of the story is depicting high school and family life with interesting and engaging characters, dialogue, and events. The other part is the car and the supernatural. I love revenge stories, and the car got some really good revenge against some bad guys. I liked that. But later the car’s evil showed when it killed good people. The ending is not happy for everyone, but happy enough. I was satisfied, and I’m a fanatic at wanting happy endings. Although, my thoughts at the end were why did they only do two things to the car? If I were in the story, I would have done a couple other things. This car was so evil, it needed every possible thing to try to stop it.

    NARRATOR:
    The narrator Holter Graham was very good speaking as a high school teen. But parts were a problem. He spoke Arnie (a main character) and a couple other characters as follows. Think of a guy who’s constipated, sitting on the toilet, straining, and speaking without breathing. Unpleasant. Also, his voice for the girl Lee was a little odd.

    Genre: horror fiction.

    "FANTASTIC!"

    This book was amazing, one of the first books I hated to push pause when I needed to do something... It could not have better narration than what Holter Graham brought to the story.

    "Awsome Book...Amazing Narrator"

    I have to admit that although I have been a King fan for many years (30+) and I have never read Christine! It came out in the theatre and I saw it there but never really was impressed. But this summer I decided to finally sit down and have a listen, and boy was I surprised! The book was fresh and unmarred by time! I listened to it at least an hour a day and I was so sad when it finally ended! :( Holter Graham did a wonderful job and I hope to hear more of him. Next will be Carrie, narrated by Sissy Spacek, which I haven't read either but did here an interesting interview with Mr. King about his idea for the story.

    I like my horror, techno-thrillers, and science fiction. Which is why Jurassic Park and The Lost World are 2 of my favorite books ever!

    Story
    "Hell Hath No Fury..."

    I was extremely surprised by this book. Having seen the movie back in my youth (and being underwhelmed by it), I wasn't expecting the excellent ghost story elements present in the novel. The film came off as a Shining clone, where instead of a haunted hotel driving someone mad, we find a haunted car driving someone mad. The novel dug so much deeper into the car's previous owner's story, which was much more satisfying (and creepy).
    Holter Graham is an excellent narrator, and captures Arnie's descent perfectly. I highly recommend this book to King fans who haven't enjoyed it yet!

    "Definitely worth listening to"

    Holter graham was wonderful. Im not much of a horror fan per say but this one got me. Excellently performed, the nuances of the characters that king so expertly develops are brought to life and the story itself is fantastic. Highly recommend especially if you appreciate the detail king gives the reader to totally immerse themself in the experience.
