Book Description


See all titles by Stephen King.

The state police of Troop D. in Statler, Pennsylvania, have kept the mysterious, vintage Buick Roadmaster caged in Shed B out in back of the barracks ever since 1979, when Troopers Ennis Rafferty and Curtis Wilcox answered a call about its driver gone missing from a gas station just down the road. Mostly it sleeps (that's one way of putting it, anyway), and over the years the troop has absorbed its mystery as part of the background to their work. But even as it sleeps, it breathes—inhaling a little bit of this world, exhaling a little bit of whatever world it came from...until the fateful day when its terrifying secrets are finally revealed.

2 of 5 Not his best November 17, 2009
Reviewer: David R. from Sacramento, CA United States  
I first made my foray into the world that is Stephen King's with an incredible expectation. I had heard so many wonderful things about the books that he had written that when two became available at my job, I grabbed them as quickly as I could. This book disappointed me. Not because it isn't well written, but because I didn't really see the point. Nothing happens compared to what I had been told about his work.

If you're a really big Stephen King fan, then this is a fair offering, but if you're looking for something representative of his entire body of work, then look elsewhere. I would suggest Dreamcatcher or Pet Sematary for those who want intensity. The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon and Gerald's Game for those who want a really good true to life scenario.
