Reading Challenge Book Review: Christine- Stephan King



With as much Stephan King as I have read I was kind of surprised that I had never read this book but about halfway through the first chapter my mind began to wonder and I thought maybe this is why.  I have that problem with his writing sometimes.  I think he is brilliant, he is one of my favorite writers, but there is some of his writing that I just can't connect with and Christine is one of those books.

I finished it, but it took me longer than most books do and I had to force it.  I will admit though...it really, really gave me the creeps.  Not in the sleep with my light on for a week kind of way that Pet Cemetery did but I was kind of glad I don't drive. 

As much as I didn't connect with the book the malevolence of Christine came pouring through the pages as I got closer to the end of the book and I was glad to be done with it.  Definitely not something I will reread, probably not even something I will keep on my bookshelf.   I don't even think I'll watch the movie. 

She doesn't look so scary...does she?


One book down off my reading challenge uh, I didn't actually count yet so a whole bunch more to go.   (that sounded so much funnier in my head)
