Make a date with terror and live the nightmare that is..."Carrie".
reading Carrie, King's first published novel, there is no doubt why
Stephen King rose to be one of the top authors in the horror genre.
is not a huge novel, in fact it's a pretty quick read. This book is the
tale of Carrie White, a girl that has been bullied and torn down at
every turn by her overly religious mother and her fellow classmates.
Carrie is also telekinetic (TK). A person can only take so much before
finally breaking, and boy do we get to see Carrie break--and the whole
town pays. What I think makes this book really work is if you take the
TK out, you have a very REAL story.
We know from the very start
that the story has a very bad ending. Throughout the story, there are
snippets and excerpts from court documents, interviews with survivors,
etc.. This really builds up the excitement to the final moment when all
hell breaks loose.
Even non-horror fans can enjoy Carrie. Get this book and read it!!
