"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. ☺
...."it's" happening again..... = the same type of supernatural events that occured before.

"His" = can be a "He" or "he"

"fury" = can be with an "f" or "F", and have 3 different defining meanings.

Intriguing ambiguous writing done superbly,
and intentionaly/deliberately I think.

I don't think this conclusively answers my question, but thanks. Heretofore, Christine is given the female pronouns. The ending obviously diverts from this. I'd like to know what King meant by it. Yeah, I agree, it must be intentional.

Very interesting thoughts. I have a few responses so bare with me.

I will give you that Leigh was a bit jealous of Christine but not at first. That came later.
I actually had a boyfriend in high school who's car hated me. Every time I got in it, I would break a fingernail, or tear/stain my outfit, etc. Once he let me drive her and I blew the engine. We didn't get along at all. :biggrin2:

Nope, can't agree with you here. Dennis loved Arnie. I believe that strongly. Did he and Leigh mess up by falling for each other behind Arnie's back? Yes, but one could argue that Christine pushed them together. A good way to get them out of the picture for Arnie, and give him another reason to hate, which she feeds off of.

I think you are being pretty hard on his folks. In fact, they had a pretty decent relationship before Christine arrived. His mom was more controlling but was only trying to do what was best for her son. I would not agree that he was bullied at home. He certainly began to feel that way, again after Christine. She came into the picture and destroyed Arnie from the outside in. She was pure evil. I have always felt like Christine was similar to The Mangler. Some weird set of things came together as she rolled down the assembly line that opened the door (pun indeeded) for evil to infiltrate her.

Anyway, it's a favorite book of mine too, and I love discussing with folks on here dispite our various opinions. Either way, we can both enjoy the book!:)
Do you consider christine an evil being or is it more the ghost of la bray? I go back and forth with that

Haha...well, you may have a point. Perhaps it is supposed to be ambiguous.
...."it's" happening again..... = the same type of supernatural events that occured before.

"His" = can be a "He" or "he"

"fury" = can be with an "f" or "F", and have 3 different defining meanings.

Intriguing ambiguous writing done superbly,
and intentionaly/deliberately I think.
after thinking more about it "equivocal" could be used here too.
and should have included:
"its" way east = the wave of those supernatural events.
i just never saw Christine as the it here.
not disagreeing or being aargumentative ,
only taking one last look into the flawed facet of the diamond
before letting it drop from hand into the enthralling pool of BooyaMoon.
got to move to other diamonds now boss ;)
