Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: Cars

After reading Maureen Johnson’s The Key to the Golden Firebird I started pondering about other books where a car has a fairly important role, or where a car is synonymous with a character, and realized that there are actually quite a few books that would fit into this category. Here are some that I’ve discovered.

  1. The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson. Originally Published 2004. LT.
  2. Death Benefits by Sarah N. Harvey. Originally Published 2010. LT.
  3. Christine by Stephen King. Originally Published 1983. LT.
  4. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Flemming. Originally Published 1964. LT.
  5. Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer. Originally Published 1998. LT.
  6. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. Originally Published 1926. LT.
  7. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Originally Published 1908. LT.
  8. Born to Run by Mercedes Lackey. Originally Published 1992. LT.
  9. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. Originally Published 1998. LT.
  10. Saturday Night Dirt by Will Weaver. Originally Published 2008. LT.

What other books can you think of put a lot of importance on a car?
