REVIEW: CARRIE BY STEPHEN KING

CARRIE
STEPHEN KING
GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS:


A modern classic, "Carrie" introduced a distinctive new voice in American fiction -- Stephen King. The story of misunderstood high school girl Carrie White, her extraordinary telekinetic powers, and her violent rampage of revenge, remains one of the most barrier-breaking and shocking novels of all time.
Make a date with terror and live the nightmare that is..."Carrie".


MY TAKE

5 STARS!

After 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.

Carrie 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!!
