Review: "Christine" by Stephen King

From Goodreads:  It was love at first sight. From the moment seventeen-year-old Arnie Cunningham saw Christine, he knew he would do anything to possess her. But Christine is no lady. She is Stephen King's ultimate vehicle of terror
My Thoughts:  I was really nervous about reading this book.  I saw parts of the movie as a child and it completely freaked me out and because of that I had no desire to read the book.  I am so glad I did because I could not put it down.  This is one of my new favorite Stephen King books.  The story was so good, the characters were amazing and oh my goodness, was it creepy.  The idea of a possessed car sounds kind of lame but trust me, this book is anything but lame.  Roland LeBay is the perfect villain and Dennis Guilder is the average guy turned hero; I can't say enough about how well-written and well-developed these characters were.  And of course, King had to end the book in a way that made my skin crawl.  I really loved this book and I highly recommend it to anyone even if they haven't read Stephen King's books before.  4 1/2 stars.
