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

4.5/5

THE REGULATORS BY STEPHEN KING

regulators

The Regulators is one of those books which shows SK’s power of imagination. It is a  mirror book to his novel “DESPERATION” written initially as Richard Bachman .

 

STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS

There’s a place in Wentworth, Ohio, where summer is in full swing. It’s called Poplar Street. Up until now it’s been a nice place to live. The idling red van around the corner is about to change all that. Let the battle against evil begin.

 

PLOT IN SHORT

A violent story set in a quite Ohio neighbourhood which is turned into a bloody ground by an autistic boy under the influence of an ancient evil spirit called Tak. High on violence this SK book may make you love or hate westerns .

 

 

THE GOOD

Imaginative and fast paced

Good scene setting

 

 

THE BAD

The amount of mindless slaughter might turn some readers off.

Not for people with low tolerance for gore.

 

MY THOUGHTS

Good book to read if you are a SK fan or if you want to try something different. Its  mirror novel Desperation has the same set of characters’ along with the same villain Tak with a different plot. Do try it out if you like this one.

PET SEMATARY BY STEPHEN KING

51Xddn4TEIL._AC_UL320_SR200,320_

Pet sematary happens to be my first SK book. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and here is why:

Stuff on the backcover says

When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat.

But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself—and hideously more powerful .

Plot in short

The creeds are a family of good people with slightly spoilt kids having the kind of love for their pet that only children can have. An ancient Indian burial ground changes all that

The good

Scary to the core

A page turner

Medium paced story

Enough chills and thrills to keep you up at night

The bad

Not for the faint hearted

 

My Thoughts

One of the best horror novels ever according to me. I love this book. All horror genre lovers have to read this book.
