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).

    "Odd editing."

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

    Story
    "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 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.

    Far better than the movie. One of SK's better books. Maybe top ten. Not as scary as It or The Shining, but entertaining with a great narrator.

    "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.

    Story
    "Christine (& Rock-n-Roll) Will Never Die…"

    This is quite possibly my favorite book of all time, simply because I read it when I was the same age as Arnie and Dennis and at that time I wanted a car so bad! The idea of a love relationship between a boy and his car was a brilliant one for King, especially considering the way it turns out. Since then, I have wanted that Plymouth Fury so bad… but as the years go by, I fear that will never happen. At any rate, Christine is an absolutely horrific horror story that goes well beyond a car on a killing spree. It dives into all kinds of adolescent trials and tribulations, as well as obsession, deep fury and regret. The narrator did a fantastic job! I loved the way he slowly changes Arnie’s voice as Christine and LeBay take hold of him and it made the audio version so much better. The only thing I hate about Christine? The fact that King will probably never do a sequel, even after setting it up all those years ago. Christine is an absolute must-read/listen for any horror fan.

    "Absolutely Amazing!!!"

    Overall story kept me on edge from beginning to end. Unfortunately around later mid to end felt like some sentences cut short/skipped. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great story.

    I wasn't too sure I would find much interest in this story, but was pleasantly surprised. Classic King performed perfectly.
