I agree, because....I don't think Christine requires a "driver"......she's sentient evil.....the ghosts are simply manifestations of the hell force that propels her.....the souls just fuel her psychic tank.....
...been many a moon, but I believe that's accurate....I agree, becausedidn't the car (without the help of a separate entity) cause LeBay to become depressed and evil which resulted in his family's deaths? I don't think there was a previous owner or ghost in that case.
.......I just cant wait to get a proper keyboaard. Want to post more and thoroughly.I may be overthinking this but I never understood the context of the last line. Christine is referred to by the she/her pronoun throughout but the last line says 'His neverending fury'. I immediately thought of Roland LeBay but then wondered was King obliquely referring to God/Christ? After all, Christ is in Christine. I'm not saying this novel is a thinly veiled metaphor for God's wrath but I can't say I'm not curious about the implications in this last line. Why not end with her neverending fury?
Thoughts are appreciated.
last page tells A LOT."I keep thinking of George LeBay in Ohio. His sister in Colorado. Leigh in New Mexico. What if it's started again? What if it's working its way east, finishing the job? Saving me for last?
His single-minded purpose.
His unending fury."
Well, Christine is referred to as an 'it' here and then twice (it would appear) as a him. Interesting. Nowhere in the book does this happen (that I'm aware) until those last two lines. Also, a fun piece of trivia: King recently said in an interview that this was his favorite ending of all his novels. Things that make you go hmmmm.
