It was love at first sight. From the moment seventeen-year-old Arnie saw Christine, he knew he would do anything to possess her. Arnie's best friend, Dennis, distrusts her—immediately. Arnie's teen-queen girlfriend, Leigh, fears her the moment she senses her power. Arnie's parents, teachers, and enemies soon learn what happens when you cross her. Christine is no lady. She is Stephen King's ultimate, blackly evil vehicle of terror.

This is the story of a love triangle involving teenage misfit Arnie Cunningham, his new girlfriend, and a haunted 1958 Plymouth Fury. Dubbed Christine by her previous owner, Arnie's first car is jealous, possessive—and deadly.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine A well-known story even among those who are not King fans, CHRISTINE follows the progression of local nerd Arnie Cunningham's all-consuming love for a run-down 1958 Plymouth Fury. King has a knack for stretching out a story to achieve the highest level of tension, and Holter Graham's narration certainly grips the listener to the grisly end. He firmly establishes the main players and individualizes even minor characters, truly bringing the novel to life. Graham's vocal dexterity makes for, quite possibly, the ultimate audio experience. However, this is no brief listen--it's the book to listen to on an epic journey or perhaps spread over a few dark winter evenings to add to the story's atmosphere. B.D.J. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
  • New York Times Book Review "Vintage King...breathtaking...awesome. Carries such momentum the reader must force himself to slow down!"
