Review:
I think that this is one of the best books that king has ever written! It is scary, thrilling and exciting all at the same time! King has gotten me to jump a few times, but in this book, i couldn't stop reading and as soon as i was done reading for a while, i wasn't able to sleep. i know that this book will keep you in your seat, so buckle up tight and prepare yourself for a scary ride!

Review:
THE BEST!!! Whoever that was who wrote the last review on here is a complete SHITTER! U hear me. SHITTER! Christine is the most perfect and beautiful car in the world and as for the book itself... pure genius. It describes everything and has the exact, RIGHT view of the world and the rest of the shitters out there. And what do you mean 'monster car bullshit'? It's a story! A story to stimulate peoples minds and get them thinking! Well, i love Christine (Christine herself) and no one will come between me and her. I love her!
