Christine by Stephen King

Christine is a horror novel based in the 80's about a nerdy guy, Arnie Cunningham, and his 1958 red and white Plymouth Fury, Christine. When he finds Christine he falls for her and buys her instantly. He begins spending all of his time fixing her up and seems to start changing before everyone's eyes. His only friend, Dennis, starts noticing these negative changes and starts to grow more nervous around Christine. Something seems wrong about her but he can not put his finger on it. As Arnie changes, more people are becoming meaner to him that usual. Eventually, these people start dying in horrifying ways with no trace as who could have done

Amazingly, Stephen King actually manages to write a suspenseful and horrifying story about a killer car without making it cheesy. He keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, constantly keeping a feeling of suspense and action lurking. Another wonderful King thriller, Christine is a hit.
