Reviews of From a Buick 8 (2002)
Review by zieveraar (2005-08-18)
Hands down, the worst book King has ever written. I've read them all and he never wrote this bad. The site asks if there are any spoilers in the review, futile question as there are none to give.
The story is meaningless, it is basically one flimsy idea stretched out a thousand times too much. This should not even be a short story, the only explanation I can give is that King can publish what he wants and that there is no decent editor to stop him. Ofcourse, this is a personal opinion, but if I ever need something to light a fire with, this book would serve just fine.
