    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...

    Primer libro que leo de este señor! Ueeee! Ya era hora! Pues bien, me ha gustado aunque tampoco emocionado. Había visto la mítica peli de los 70 hace mil años así que la trama no me sorprendió mucho pero me encantó el formato que entremezcla retazos de entrevistas, novelas y ...

    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...

    Por fin me he decidido a leer al gran Stephen King, y qué mejor manera que empezar por su primera novela publicada y hacerlo en estas fechas. Elegí Carrie por varios motivos. El primero, que ya conocía la historia y sabía que no me iba a cagar de miedo mientras leía. El segundo,...

    Carrie es un libro corto pero grandioso. Te atrapa desde la primera página. Es ya considerado un clásico de la literatura del terror, y con buenos fundamentos. Tiene escenas que dejan una cicatriz en nuestra memoria. Jesús mira desde las paredes. Pero su rostro es frío como u...

    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...
