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.

This definitely was not one of my favorite King books. The first few hundred pages of this book were definitely not page turners but the last were. The story of the Buick unravels by going between the past and present where I feel the entire book should have been written as a flashback. The length and the drawing out of the story almost made this book unfinishable.

This was one of those books that started out kinda slow, but once it got going, it was very good. It took me a while to finish it, though, because it just didn't have enough of that King feel to it. A bit alien, a bit supernatural, a bit creepy. Buick Roadmaster sitting in state police barracks shed becomes a portal to another world...? dimension...? Interesting plot, definitely different. Just a bit slow in spots.
