Evil is alive in Libertyville. It inhabits a custom-painted red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury and the teenage boy, Arnold Cunningham, who buys it.

Along with Arnold’s girlfriend Leigh Cabot, Dennis Guilder attempts to find out the real truth behind Christine and finds more than he bargained for: from murder to suicide, and a peculiar feeling that surrounds Christine—she gets even with anyone standing in her path.

Can Dennis save Arnold from the wrath of Christine?

Quotes & Awards

  • “At its best, reading Christine is not unlike watching trapeze artists at the precise instant when they suspend themselves between swings in midair. Time is frozen; for an instant everything is breathtaking, awesome. There are many such moments in Christine, for it is vintage King.”

    New York Times

  • “Vintage King…breathtaking…awesome. Carries such momentum the reader must force himself to slow down!”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Truly gripping…some of the best writing King has ever done…The master has returned with a vengeance.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “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...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. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gesmer Gesmer | 1/25/2014

    " One of the best, and most underated, King books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/12/2014

    " I'm not foolish enough to take SK too seriously, but I do like buying into the illusion, regardless of subject matter. This was one of the first of his where I failed miserably and thought it was just inane. Still, an inane SK novel still deserves three stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheida | 1/11/2014

    " If you date a guy who names his car Christine..ran away as fast as you can. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 12/22/2013

    " I have been reading Stephen King for over twenty years, but I think I have just recently really discovered him. This was a great read, especially as an audio book. Will definitely read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/15/2013

    " Like so many of King's other books, I loved it. I did feel that it takes a while to really get swept up in King's books, but there always comes a point when I cannot put the book down unless it is wrenched from my fingers. This one was no different. A perfectly satisfying thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glendon Perkins | 12/11/2013

    " One of the classic scenes in horror novels takes place while Christine suffers a flat tire. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jak | 12/3/2013

    " A good yarn about a possesed car that kills it's (and it's ownwers) foes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 10/20/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tony Opsata | 10/17/2013

    " One of the best of early King. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/2/2013

    " I've named every car I've owned since reading this spine tingler and always talk nice to them ... just in case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen Moynihan | 8/24/2013

    " Stephen King has the ability to write horror fantasy that is so real, you believe it could happen. I had absolutely no problem falling under his spell with this novel, and, though I do still name my cars, I have to remind myself at least annually that no, cars do not have their own agendas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackmillis | 8/23/2013

    " Here I am at 44 going back to my Stephen King phase. Not as scary as before but still lots of fun (maybe a little jaded). Definitely a great/quick/summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gaile | 7/25/2013

    " Poor girl! "

    " I loved this book. I really didn't think I would get into it because I'm not particularly crazy about cars, but the book was written so well that I was hooked the entire time. King never ceases to impress me (: "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 12/10/2012

    " I re-read this gem every 2 years or so. I just finished it...again. To me...it is the ultimate in subtle horror and character development. Only SK could make an engine noise terrifying. YUM! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debrah Neal | 12/3/2012

    " Kept me up all night! "

    " this book was dumb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenny | 12/2/2012

    " This one is hard to talk about. I did not love it but i did not hate it. It gets slow at some parts and drags a little with needless information. If you like happy endings not the book for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Addicted to Books | 11/16/2012

    " I love the way this book is written from all different points of view. It's my 2nd favorite book by S.K. (after "Carrie"). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa Conderan | 9/22/2012

    " Stephen Kings early stuff is soooo good! Why did he have to go all sci-fi? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne Tarrants | 7/22/2012

    " Don't judge the book by the movie. I really enjoyed the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elon G | 7/13/2012

    " This is a great story, but because Stephen king has written so much, his later works have topped this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail | 6/9/2012

    " I read this over 10 years ago, and to tell people it scared me more than any of Kings' books makes them look ay me like I am crazy. After all, who would be scared of a car? I would read it again but I am too scared! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kjirsten | 6/8/2012

    " Beware a possessed car. "

    " One of those rare books that pull you in from the beginning and hold you in throughout the entire story. I certainly do not regret reading this. It has great characters and I feel like it accurately portrays the high school part. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 11/11/2011

    " Not one of my favorite King books, but good nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacie | 3/31/2011

    " Pretty classic Stephen King, although it seemed to build and build and then for not much. Not one of my top 10 King books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 3/22/2011

    " A boy buys his dream car only to discover that it has amurderous mind of it's own. Not my favourite SK book, but worth a read if you're a fan. "

    " I like stephen king just a little bit. Maybe I am too girly or scared.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah | 3/11/2011

    " It was a pretty good read. It moved very quickly, but the ending was a little abrupt and just....hanging. Too ambiguous for a novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SJuhl4 | 3/9/2011

    " An outstanding addition to anyone's reading list. Gives a whole new outlook to 'classic' car. Great read - don't miss it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 3/8/2011

    " This has been the name for one of my own cars ever since, LOL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 3/6/2011

    " A good Stephen King novel about a demonic car. The thing that always strikes me about his writing is the insight he has into human relationships -- at least until a horror twist occurs. "
