Publisher's Summary

Stephen King's ultimate evil vehicle of terror, Christine: the frightening story of a nerdy teenager who falls in love with his vintage Plymouth Fury. It was love at first sight, but this car is no lady.

Evil is alive in Libertyville. It inhabits a custom-painted red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine and young Arnold Cunningham, who buys it. Along with Arnold's girlfriend, Leigh Cabot, Dennis Guilder attempts to find out the real truth behind Christine and finds more than he bargained for: From murder to suicide, there's a peculiar feeling that surrounds Christine - she gets revenge on anyone standing in her path. Can Dennis save Arnold from the wrath of Christine?

This number-one national best seller is "Vintage Stephen King...breathtaking...awesome. Carries such momentum the listener must force himself to slow down" (The New York Times Book Review).

Great Story and Nice Performance

Christine is just classic King and is an awesome read/listen. Holter Graham does a great job. He doesn't try too hard to affect the voices of the characters he is reading but still gives each of them their own voice. The only thing that keeps me from giving this a 10 out of 10 is that the audio seems to skip frequently. It will just skip over finishing a word or sentence. Not to the point where you are missing any of the story but enough to be annoying that you paid for being incomplete and choppy. Fix that and it's perfect.

Skipping Issues

Really enjoying the book and narration, but there are constant skips and jumps in this recording. Occasionally just a few words are clipped short, other times it skips ahead and starts in the middle of a sentence a paragraph ahead. Hoping to bring attention to this.

Audio cuts off

The audio cuts off at the end of certain parts, which gets annoying. This is an issue with most King books for some reason.

A moving performance of a top tier King novels

Unlike some stiff, regal or cold narrators, the guy who reads Christine conveys a lot of humanity. Christine was written during the golden years of King's career when everything he wrote was a classic, and it feels cut from the same cloth as It in particular. One note: The audiobook production itself is surprisingly rough, cutting off the end of words here and there where they stopped the tape recorder, but that's more odd than truly bothersome. It's just that normally the audiobooks are so seamless you never notice the splices.

Great Story, Good Performance, Horrible Editing

Loved the story, but the editing was poor. The ends of sentences were cut and occasionally there was overlapping dialogue.

Odd editing.

Great overall, but the audio cuts and jumps strangely from time to time despite repeat downloads.

Seemed to be some editing issues

Every 5-10 minutes it seemed to skip ahead a sentence or two. I would replay the same spot and found it wasn't technically skipping ahead, the audio for those sentences just isn't there at all.

Mediocre King novel (love him) horrible production

I purchased because of all the raving reviews. I’m used to always be at least slightly creeped out with S. King but not this one. It seemed put on or forced. There was no subtlety to your building discomfort and anxiety about what’s gonna happen next - you were just told something is going to happen - constantly. The narrators voice tolerable but annoying as Arnie.

The editing sucks with segments cut off and words snipped and awkward pauses

Excellent narrator brings the story to life

Obviously a great story by Stephen King but the narrator really brings this story to life. Tone of voice, nuances, everything to bring the teenagers involved to life.

Great story but...

I'm unsure if it was my phone, but in every chapter the reader would get cut off as if it was badly edited. I thought it was strange at first, but it was literally every chapter. Other than that, good story, great reader/performance.
