Stephen King's legendary debut, about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates.
Carrie White may be picked on by her classmates, but she has a gift. She can move things with her mind. Doors lock. Candles fall. This is her power and her problem. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offers Carrie a chance to be a normal...until an unexpected cruelty turns her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that no one will ever forget.
This book is a really great book this book really made me think about the life of a girl that is picked and teased in high school if u have a real open mind to this book it will make u want to try and stop bulling and not to judge someone
I liked the movie better
I realize a review should focus on the book, but since Carrie is one of my all time favorite movies, it was tough to read this book without comparing the two to each other...that said, this is one of those rare instances where I actually enjoyed the movie more than the novel. The book is not bad by any means, I just prefer the movie's versions of the characters, and events (especially the prom, and Carrie and her mother's final confrontation) to the book's.
Either way, still a great story and fun read!
Not one of Kings bests but still an amazing read. It is written in a unique way that makes it hard to put the book down. It's a bit short though, about half the size of his books and still the same price
