As big a horror fan as I am, I've read surprisingly few of King's books. This is my first time reading Christine. So far, so good. But one thing I've noticed about King in the few books of his I've read is that while his books are exceedingly well-written and the stories in and of themselves are dynamic and expertly composed, his endings tend to suck big, fat, hairy balls. I'm hoping Christine isn't another case in point.
