This time it's another crazed car, a Buick Roadmaster with some serious quirks. Its powers come from somewhere other than its V-8. It blasts colored lights of such brightness that ordinary sunglasses are useless. People and small animals disappear into its vortex. D Troop of Pennsylvania's State Police keeps it in Shed B. Young Ned's trooper father died recently, and he wants information. The audio is narrated by six fine readers who explain what happened to Ned's father and their own strange experiences with the car even as they witness Ned's growing obsession with it. Written in chapter monologues, FROM A BUICK 8 is a perfect fit for audio. The performances are as fascinating as the plot. Few do this genre better, and while this is not his strongest work, Stephen King is still king. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
