“From a Buick 8” By Stephen King Review

The state police of Troop D in rural Pennsylvania have kept a secret in Shed B out back of the barracks ever since 1979, when Troopers Ennis Rafferty and Curtis Wilcox answered a call from a gas station just down the road and came back with an abandoned Buick Roadmaster. Curt Wilcox knew old cars, and he knew immediately that this one was…wrong, just wrong. A few hours later, when Rafferty vanished, Wilcox and his fellow troopers knew the car was worse than dangerous — and that it would be better if John Q. Public never found out about it.

Wow this book was such a disappointing because I was expecting more from it because after all Stephen King wrote it. 

The plot here is so boring and so bad that I can’t even describe it. For the entire book I was wishing for it to end. There were many times throughout reading this book were I was thinking about DNF-ing it but after all I didn’t . However the plot itself had some good moments here and there which I need to give this book points for. But there weren’t much of these good moments which was sad to see with Stephen King.

The characters here felt all the same without anything making them different from the rest of the characters in this book. I think that was the first time it happened in a Stephen King book.

The writing style here wasn’t better than the rest of the story which also disappoints me. 

I personally have the Love-Hate relationship with Stephen King’s books and this one is definitely a hate book for me. I didn’t care for it at all which really speaks for itself here. 

I give this book 1 / 5
