Christine Review

Since I’ve been in a horror mood, I decided it was time to pick up a Stephen King novel. After all, he is a master of the genre. So, I decided to pull Christine off my shelf. It’s been on there since 2015. It was time to finally read it, and I’m glad that I did.


 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?

My Thoughts on Christine

I loved Christine. It’s a classic King novel that will chill you to the bone. The setting was rich and atmospheric. And the characters were well developed, which I’ve come to expect from King.

I also really liked the way he presented this story. A majority of it was told from Dennis Guilder’s point of view and the rest was from the other characters points of view. That really helped solidify the changes that Arnie went through. It was easier to see them from the outside. Every now and then there would be a glimpse of Arnie peeking through, but then he would be taken over again.

And lastly, I loved how he executed the paranormal aspects. This is probably one of the best ghost stories that I’ve come across. If you’re a King lover and you haven’t picked this up, I highly recommend it.

My Rating: 5/5
