This subdued, vaguely creepy tale is about an extraordinary force that infiltrates the lives of the people who work at a police barracks in rural Pennsylvania. While some readers may find this tale less exciting than the horror master's earlier works, From a Buick 8 is a wonderful example of how much King's plotting skills and literary finesse have matured over his long career. And, most of all, it's a darn creepy book
A great story about the secret the state police of Troop D, the Buick 8 in shed B. The Buick 8 is more than just an old car and proves to be dangerous when a trooper disappears shortly after it is first brought to the station in 1979. Trooper Curt Wilcox sought answers about the Buick and, after his death, so does his eighteen-year-old son.
The story is well-read by several voice actors, who bring it to life.
This is an audiobook about out fascination with deadly things, about our insistence on answers when there are none, about terror and courage in the face of the unknowable.
