i really loved this book being different from the other SK books ive read so far. like other people I found a lot of good humor in it and it had me laughing to myself. I loved reading in the authors statement how the idea came to him leaving a gas station he did (as always) the best job making the characters relatable and giving them each so much personality you feel like you know them. another thing that I loved even though it's a bit ominous was how
Curtis was killed and Eddie J killed himself so close to where the Buick was originally found like really tied the story together for me.
one of my favorites

It's a very subtle story. Many readers don't get that The Buick is really a metaphor for things that we can't explain--like random accidents in life. One of my favorites.
ive been thinking about the story a lot since finishing it and that never occurred to me but would make so much sense!!! so true! and how Sandy talked a lot about life having a chain/link to people and events throughout life. definitely was a great story
