    I want to start a shelf of "books-that-traumatized-me-as-a-child-with-stories-of-girls-who-just-could-not-stop-gushing-blood-Down-There," but I can't think of any others besides this and Bell Jar. I know in Are You There God, It's Me Margaret they just couldn't stop TALKING about it, b...

    Everybody is invited to the Prom Dance! THAT ENDING THAT YOU'RE EXPECTING... It's very interesting to read Carrie finally. I have watched the Brian de Palma's adaptation, so I wasn't unfamiliar with what would happen. However, the way as Stephen King wrote this book ...

    Poor Carrie, I feel your pain. This book was interesting in that it presented facts on scientific phenomena called Psychokinesis, Something I have had personal experience with and I?ll tell you about it at the end of this review as long as you all promise not to call me a freak?...

    I think part of what makes this book so amazing is that even though it is a horror book - it stems from something very basic and very real to so many people. The need to be loved. The need for acceptance. The need to be nurtured by a parent. Sadly - as is so often the case in real life...

    My brain is a torment of RAGE with which I wish to rain vengeance down upon the later half of this book! Everything progressed along as it should in the first half. The story moved at a good pace and the writing - though not moving - was adequate. Then the climatic scene happen...

    To begin, I want to tell a quick story about my introduction to Stephen King. I came really late to the party when it comes to the King. I'll not bore you with the same ol' story about my first read, but to make a long story short, I read The Stand and was not a fan right away...to say...

    Don?t let the brevity of this book fool you. Carrie may be one of King?s less thick books but right from the scandalous opening scene to the very last page, it?s a relentlessly harrowing read. King pieces together Carrie's story through a series of reports and articles concern...

    Was Carrie White a literary active shooter? Let?s break it down: from an abusive, negligent home life with dark theological and religious hobgoblins; she is picked on and teased at school, relentlessly, by other girls and the bullying is allowed (somewhat) by the school administra...

    5.30.18 Third re-read review. I finished my third read of Carrie on Sunday. I wanted my thoughts on it to be fresh for an in-person book group meeting at the end of this month. (It is prom season after all!) I still love this style of story-telling which includes snippets from ne...

    You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. In a sense, Carrie is the book that launched a thousand nightmares. This was King?s first ever novel and, while not his scariest, we would have never been exposed to the tales that have terrified millions without it. I feel that...

    Spoilers throughout. There are thousands of reviews of this book without spoilers. Find one. I enjoyed this reread (#4, I believe, but I think I've lost count) far more than any of the other times I have read this book. I remember one read being as low as two stars for me. I deteste...

    What fast and captivating read. I was a little skeptical about what horrors might come up in a King novel because I had never read anything by him, but it was fine. Defintely intense but absolutely manageable. A really good book and I'm glad it was my first King ...

    3.5 stars This book made me appreciate my mother. First off, I want to reiterate that a 3 stars from me does not equate to a negative review. It means I liked/enjoyed the book, but did not really like it or love it. So please, don?t tell me sorry it didn?t work out. Thank y...

    I have decided to go back and reread all the Stephen King books as audiobooks this time. Ones I have read recently or that I have already reread I may not do. I am starting at the very beginning with Carrie which I originally read on Kindle in 2014. You might be saying, ?But, Matt...

    This was really good and scary - just what I was hoping for. The pacing of the book was just right because of the various accounts and perspectives we get on the ?black prom? and what exactly happened, and the scary scenes WERE scary. However, I especially appreciate how this is ...

    ?People don't get better, they just get smarter. When you get smarter you don't stop pulling the wings off flies, you just think of better reasons for doing it.? This is pizza, the freaky flavor. I loved how intertwined with religion it was. Not churches and stuff like that...

    The only hell that exists is the one we create for ourselves and others. Carrie White has been abused all her life. Not even allowed to sleep with a pillow, denied all comfort by her fundamentalist mother, taunted and beaten by her relentless classmates, loved by no one: Carrie kee...

    Poor Carrie, all she wants is to be normal. Instead, she has telekinesis, a balls-on nuts mom, and a school full of bullies to deal with daily. Her peers are hideous; particularly Tommy, who I picture as a douchebag who wears sunglasses inside, refers to girls as "bitties", and has ...

    In 2019 I'm going to go back and review the King books I love and cherished but never fully reviewed for Goodreads because Goodreads wasn't a thing when I was reading King's work in the 90s. You can follow along on Instagram #ReviewKing2019 I remember exactly where I was and what I ...

    Carrie is Stephen King's debut novel and you can tell. That's not "shade" because Carrie is still fucking great but as a "Constant Reader" I could see how his writing has improved over the years. I first read Carrie when I was 13 or 14 years old and it was my first King book. Back then...

    I?m sitting here still digesting this book and the only word that comes to me is disturbed. If the purpose of fiction is to conjure emotion?even just a single emotion then find book has it in the spades yet I still can?t bring myself to rank it any higher than 3 stars. At its mos...

    Alright... I finally decided to go back to the beginning of Stephen King's catalogue, and read in chronological order everything I have either not read, or did not get enough out of because I had missed so much of the King-verse building along the way. I highly recommend reading his...

    Okay let?s just all agree that Stephen King should stick to what he?s good at?writing horror?and stay far away from writing about how he thinks female anatomy works. I don?t know if it was supposed to be realistic or not, but I contemplated putting this down after the first s...
