With Christine, written "in a clear, precise style that recalls The Shining and Firestarter… King proves once again that there is no substitute for the art of storytelling" (New York Times). This is "vintage King… breathtaking" (New York Times Book Review). This eerie tale of a man and his car was King's return to supernatural horror after the 1977 The Shining. It was the basis for director John Carpenter's film that premiered the same year the book was published.
