    Default What is the deeper question Mr King is asking in his story, Christine?

    IT: Is it ever too late to be a good husband (spouse)?
    HORNS (Joe): If you knew the worst in someone, could you still love them?

    With most books, I can work out the deeper questions being asked. But I'm having trouble with CHRISTINE. I have some ideas, but wanted to know if you (the moderator) could give me any insight.

    Thank you.

    As Ms. Mod is currently on vacation, I can't give you a definitive answer to this right now. I can however pass on the original 'Inspiration' for the story. (located in the Library Section of the site)

    It reads: "One night as I was turning into my driveway, I saw the odometer numbers on my car turn from 9999.9 to 10,000. I found myself wondering if there might not be a story in an odometer that ran backward-the car, I thought, would get "younger" instead of older, finally collapsing into its component parts. The next day I started writing it. I thought it would be a funny short story-a kind of American Graffiti. Instead, a fairly long novel came out, a supernatural tale about girlfriends, boyfriends, and Christine."

    On of his funniest most entertaining reads, he was on a rock & roll, at least I thought, pert near sprained me one perfectly good *SNRT!*'er with one perfectly deeeelicous, and quite fury-ously curvy, Christine.
    Hmm, so I'm thinkin', juuuust maybe, you know, if there actually was some 'deeper question', mighta been, 'Wonder just how far I can make a Frito shoot outta PatTheHat's nose?'

    Does the darkness embrace us or do we embrace the darkness? Or both?
