More cerebral than Christine - I enjoy it when everything isn't quite all the way explained... Note: Has tie-ins to the Dark Tower series!

Like a fine wine, I am pleased to see that King only gets better with age. A frightening book indeed, the kind of fear that shakes up your moral core. No perfunctory scare in this book.

I've just finished listening to FROM A BUICK 8 on audio for the second time.
This is an amazingly well done audio version.
There is a cast of 4 or 5 people who each tell their portion of the story, with a background narrator to mesh it together.
Nicely done and a pleasure to listen to.
And, of course the story is one of my favorites. That's a given.
I rank this as one of my favorite audio books.

Wow, I didn't like this book at all. I only finished reading it because I really did want to know the end, but the story dragged and it was just too much of the same thing. Maybe there's some deeper meaning, I dunno, but yuck. I cannot believe I found a King novel I didn't really really like! But this was a stinker for me.

I thought this was a great book. I loved how they let you almost glimpse an alternate reality that is so horrifying you wouldn't want to send your worst enemy there. I thought it was very suspenseful. I couldn't wait to see what the "Buick" was going to throw at them next. The writing is so great I could actually picture myself sitting in the car and hearing it starting to humm.... Great read!
