CARRIE BY STEPHEN KING

077ae3adac9bfd2e75906ba2b5dcf4d9

 

This is the Stephen Kings first published novel. Its one of those things that come in small packages but make a big impact so don’t let the brevity of the book  fool you. The movie adaptations of this book are also quite popular.

 

STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS

Carrie knew she should not use the terrifying power she possessed… But one night at her senior prom, Carrie was scorned and humiliated just one time too many, and in a fit of uncontrollable fury she turned her clandestine game into a weapon of horror and destruction..

 

PLOT IN SHORT

Mr. King uses a series of articles, reports and books to string together a telekinetic catastrophe that occurs in Maine on a prom night due to our heroine or should I say villain Carrie White.

 

THE GOOD

  • Fast paced story
  • Well developed characters
  • Different narrators gives a better perceptive to the story
  • Well written scenes

THE BAD

  • Some of the stuff may turn some readers off Menstrual blood, electrocutions, live burning

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

I enjoyed this book but it left me feeling sad. I felt bad and rooted for Carrie and wanted a happy ending for her. However this ending feels more realistic. All the Stephen King lovers and the movie fan don’t miss this one.

 

 

MY RATINGS
