Fa la sua comparsa nel lontano 1979 e continua la sua presenza sorniona in un capannone dietro la stazione di polizia della squadra D. È una macchina, una Buick blu notte, dentro sembra un giocattolo, ma un fatto è certo: dai copertoni sui quali non si posa mai un grammo di polvere, alla carrozzeria che si guarisce da sola, è viva come un animale... uno strano essere animato che a lunghi periodi di letargo alterna brevi, violenti attimi di attività.

Principally, though, it's a rollicking good horror yarn in which the creepy is layed on with a trowel until you just want it to stop... Leggi tutto
2.5 Stars OMGOSH, I really can't believe I'm rating a Stephen King novel 2.5 Stars, but From A Buick 8 turned out to be a real "clunker" of a read for me. The story begins enticingly when a mysterious man dressed in black rolls into a gas station for a fill-up and forthwith disappears leaving his evil Leggi tutto
“It's funny how close the past is, sometimes. Sometimes it seems as if you could almost reach out and touch it. Only… Only who really wants to?” Unpopular opinion here, but for me From a Buick 8 has always been one of King’s favorites. What can I say - you love what you love. Well, how do I love Leggi tutto

I don't think this is the best novel I've read. It's not even Stephen King's best. It is my favorite though. It's the novel I've reread most often. This was at least my fifteenth reading of it and I still had fun.

I avoided this novel for years, in fear that it would be a 'Christine' part 2 situation. Well, I was wrong. It's actually an extremely better novel, in my opinion. Scarier? No. More exciting? Definitely not. More entertaining? No. Better written? Yes. George A Romero used zombies to explore deeper m Leggi tutto
