From A Buick 8 by Stephen King
King is known as the master of storytelling for good reason. He can create characters that readers relate to like many others cannot. He captures our human essence through the darkest of times, and From A Buick 8 is no exception. This time around, he was even able to create a character out of an intangible object - a Buick.
From a Buick 8 is not one of my King favorites, but it was still a worthwhile read. King may have been writing about an other-worldly Buick, but he also captured the life of loss in an unique, but very honest way. He wrote about living life in spite of losing someone close to you; how you move on, but can never really forget. He writes about a Buick, but his story is so much more. From A Buick 8 proved to me once again why I appreciate King so much. He captures life in words and makes us truly listen, all while telling a good story along the way.
